The conference finals are in the books and MLS Cup is set. Seattle takes out the worst to first story in Colorado and Toronto outscores Montreal in the battle of Canada.
Knockout rounds came and D.C., Philly, RSL, and SKC all just made cameo’s in the 2016 playoffs. L.A. was able to grind out a 1-0 victory at home. MTL with another 1-0 win up at Stade Saputo. TFC scored 2 goals at a rocking BMO Field, and SEA took it to FCD with a 3-0 victory in the great northwest.
Decision day came out of the gates hard and we try something new this week. We give a full “live” timeline update of all the goals and their impact on the playoff picture on the final week of the 2016 regular season.
We are on vacation from our regular 9-5’s but that doesn’t mean we stop this train from rolling along. We talk about the Red Bulls scratching back and getting a draw in Chicago. The drubbing that the Villaless NYCFC boys put on USMNT Goalkeeper Tim Howard and the Colorado Rapids. If you can believe it there has been a Jozy Altidore Sighting for Toronto.
This week in MLS there were the haves and the have nots, with goals and blowouts abound. We talk about the Hudson Derby, the connection of Piatti and Drogba, along with the fallout in Seattle after it appeared the team simply gave up.
The Dog days of summer are here and MLS is getting back into the regular swing of things. NYCFC finally get their first win against a New York opponent and we have to talk about that, even though it pains us to do so. Montreal look just fine with out one Didier Drogba as they come storming back against New England, despite Kei Kamara opening his Revolution account.
We hit the ground running with all the goings on in Columbus this past week. Andrew took a trip down to visit Team Purple and see how they do it, here’s a hint : They do it right. And when we realize we are running out of time, we speed through the previews.
