Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

how was the atmosphere at ATL's new venue?

based on today, the team seems to like their new digs.

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

Not a lot of action in this thread of late, is it just a foregone conclusion that TFC can't even be beat in a 2 game playoff/1 game final?

Well, while they look to nearly have a lock on the Supporters Shield, they are probably only even money to lift the Cup. If we learned anything from last year it is that playing a final in Toronto in the dead of Winter and with a dead ball drastically reduces their edge.

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

Interest always seems to fall off around this time. CFB/NFL starting and the Euro Leagues/Champions League getting into full swing.

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

TFC obv favs, but there's just way too damn much variance baked into the playoffs to feel like they're unbeatable or anything

related: Giovinco AND Altidore currently "d2d" with injuries

i assume the remainder of the regular season will be managing the players so they're fresh for the playoffs, but 1 significant injury to someone like Giovinco (like last year) and it's game on

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

had a lot of fun at the falcons game. always nice to see a shutout but offense should be striving for more than just a touchdown

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

so the Whitecaps are the top team in the West all of a sudden? wtf

a few weeks ago i was gonna say that i hope they miss the playoffs because this team sucks, but now they can't stop winning. they should fade in the standings as they have a bunch of road games to finish the season, but they could be a dangerous team in the playoffs. the midfield was a black hole to start the season, but then they traded winger Kekuta Manneh for CM Tony Tchani which solidified things. then they got AM Yordy Reyna back from injury, signed Egyptian international Aly Ghazal who has the look of a very good DM so far (saw some reports that he was the best player on his team in Portugal, i believe it based on his 1st appearance), and now they managed to sign Nigerian international Nosa Igiebor, who has the reputation of a productive box-to-box CM. weakness to strength just like that, well played. they also made the loss of DP DM Matty Laba to injury basically irrelevant.

very deep and solid team that could definitely pose some problems for people in a wide-open Western playoffs this year. pleasantly surprised over here. having said all that, Manneh is definitely gonna come in on Saturday and net a hattrick for the Crew.

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

They've played 1 less road game, so it's not like their schedule is that road heavy and they have either 3+ pts. or a match in hand on everyone.

IMFC desperately need a VWFC win over Columbus otherwise I think they're all but done for the playoffs considering they still have 2 away matches to Toronto and they'll be lucky to grab a point from the 2 matches.

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

^ turf looking terrible is about the only negative I have on the Caps right now.

West looks kinda weak and you guys seem to have a solid team, might as well make a run!

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

DO NOT WANT any part of Atlanta in the 4/5 seed, that would be gross.

Looking at their fng goal difference! After their homestand they'll have one of the best GD's in league history.

Also want to remind everyone I have a bit on them at 118:1 to win MLS Cup

So I could stomach losing to ATL in the conf final ...... but losing MLS Cup at home again and I might quit watching sports

sorry, meant to say tough road games

@Seattle, @SKC & @NYRB in 11 days
and @Portland to finish the regular season

so it's imperative that they keep winning their home games
(vs Columbus, Colorado & San Jose)

Depends if KC ever had any 40k attendances at Arrowhead. I remember one SKC match where almost half the crowd appeared to be obese.

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017




must-win games for:
- Montreal
- Vancouver (to aid Montreal)
- San Jose, who are in the playoff mix with the 3rd worst goal difference currently lol
