There won't be a treble winner in 2014. This weekend marked the end of the conference championships as LA and New England advanced to this coming Sunday's MLS Cup.

A whooping 50% off everything today. Not bad.
// MLS //
Seattle looked great for about 30 minutes last night but LA managed to do what the Sounders did to Dallas, get an important away goal. In some ways I feel it is karma that LA got that goal too, Seattle never got a strong footing in this series and will continue to make me wonder 'what if' with FCD.
Here is a good full look at last night's game. While I wish FCD had been apart of this instead of Seattle, I can't help but think this series was good for the league. Two 60-point teams battling it out. That just doesn't happen every year.
What can you say about New England though right now. Destiny and LA seem to go hand in hand but New England may be the best team in MLS right now. Also, are we finally seeing the Charlie Davies of old?
It sounds like SKC may be a completely different team in 2015. Crazy to think how good they were from 2011-2013 though. Their MLS Cup run last year was something special.
The one sad part about this weekend was seeing New York exit the playoffs in that crazy 2-2 draw. We got to see the last of Thierry Henry.
Their tifo this year has been outstanding but this last one may have been my favorite.
Wow, that would be a big 'get' for Toronto as Garth Lagerway has been regarded as one of the league's best GMs.
It all comes down to time and money, which right now it seems like Miami just doesn't have the time to get a stadium deal in place. With so many other attractive offers on the table, you have to wonder how long this promise to David Beckham will last.
Alright, that looks to be all for now. What is on your mind on this Monday morning? Happy to see a LA-NE final? Sound off on it below.
