Great save by Frei last night.
Great save by Frei, that one is going down in history.
Totally, for sure. Terrible idea... setting out to limit goals against when you're playing at a team that scored 17 goals in the previous five [playoff] games... right.
Ugly game. Great work by Marshall, Torres, Frei, and Alonso. Amazing second half of the season.
Seattle defended well but it was a poor game all around and they had 0 shot in 120min. They deserve it somewhat I guess but that game won't sell mls...
Turns out one of the Atlanta players played against us yesterday, Mccann. He wasn't good.
I think the MLS should rethink the one game final. I think 2 legs game would be more entertaining. Never liked it for champions league either. Sure one single last final game looks amazing and would sell marketing wise, but I've rarely seen attractive football in a final. Teams play too conservative in those games. There is nothing more exciting than a team that is in a losing position and tries desperately to score. Look at the 2nd leg impact vs tfc.
as a newbee to Seattle was fun catching it at a bur full of supporters. I'm waiting for Miami to get their team already to actually follow the MLS though
A two-leg final?
Then you're setting up for a season-ending game right around.....Christmas.
December 10th is late enough for outdoor soccer in these climates.
The one-and-done system is the way to go.
Don't hold your breath.
the stadium location seems to be the big issue right now. But I hope and think that this will be solved.
Calendar shouldn't be a concern. Can always finish the season one or 2 weeks earlier. We're talking about one more game only.
Crew protected list
Can definitely see Atlanta taking Sauro.
Giovinco just blamed the Argos fieldshare for his injuries the second half of the year, which is definitely going to help resolve the idiotic pettiness between the two fanbases.
Expansion draft is today.
Who do you think will be taken? I feel like Minnesota is a little difficult to guess since they really haven't done much but Atlanta, I could see them taking a few midfielders (specifically DM) and maybe some more D. Don't know a lot about all the players they've picked up but they seem to be attacking players without many D.
I'll be utterly shocked if Dave Romney is still a member of the Galaxy tonight.
Expansion Draft results
Methinks Minnesota did better
Minnesota took Femi. I hate Minnesota.
Femi and Antinella were both on my shortlist. Irwin too.
Wouldn't have touched anyone else that was taken.
Watts, Romney, Colvey are all guys I liked too
Yeah, I'm starting to think that those deals Colorado made with MIN/ATL had a condition that they couldn't take Watts, because I can't think of any other reason why both teams would pass him up.
As we know, I think the important things in expansion draft are to not get any DPs, any international slots and any free agents.
I think the only international was Saied, and he may have a green card at this point. I also expect to see a trade or two here shortly, especially with Irwin. I'd bet he goes back to TFC for allocation or something.
Surprised that Atlanta took two keepers, unless as BA said above, they'll flip him back to Toronto.
But, why take Kann, anyway?
Minnesota are supposedly trading Duvall to Montreal for Johan Venegas.
Jesus Christ, this might be a better signing than Almiron.
