The week rolls on here as the playoffs are set to begin tomorrow.
// FC Dallas //
Seattle. LA. SKC. Those are the three options for this weekend. Pick your poison wisely I suppose. We will dive into this more tomorrow on here.
Pretty awesome to see Mauro Diaz playing at his best down the stretch.
// MLS //
Simon Borg looks back at all the calls both good and bad on Decision Day. He also offers up his thoughts on the red card in our game that changed the tide in FCD's favor.
Matt Doyle puts in his thoughts on Decision Day with a little bit on Victor Ulloa and his work rate on Sunday evening against San Jose. I'm not sure I am in love with 'The Crab' nickname for him though.
I know the Union fans have not had a ton to be excited about over the last few seasons but this guy can help them turn things around in a hurry. Some folks yesterday were even putting his hire up there in terms of moments in club history, which seems a bit crazy but it may not be in the end.
My gut tells me we'll see Montreal and New England in the East while LA and Portland move on from the West.
You can't argue too much with some of his suggestions. Playing on turf. Travel issues. All things that could and should be addressed.
Plenty to chew on in this one as it goes into the issues that LA and Seattle had down the stretch this year. Crazy that they are a knockout round matchup here. Most had them as #1 and #2 in the West to start the season.
I'm not usually one to link to a gallery post like this but it is rather interesting to see some of the overpriced players listed out like this.
