So, let's see, the Revs can't catch us (we own tiebreaker), so we can finish 4th, 5th, or 6th.
 
DC hosts Cincinnati, Toronto hosts Columbus, we go to Montreal.
 
To finish 4th:
We win, DC doesn't win.
We tie, DC loses, Toronto doesn't win.
 
We finish 6th if:
We lose or tie, Toronto wins.
 
We finish 5th otherwise.

I noticed that when they announced play-off format that 6th seed is actually better than 5th due to bracket being imbalanced with only 1st seed bye. There is a chance for a home game. Game against Montreal will likely be pretty close to meaningless at this point.

Our forward situation is troubling the most. If it isnt the RB position being a carrousel all year or a shade of BWP or White injured 🤕 , things could be different right now.

Montreal will play for pride and nothing much. Hopefully we win and DC loses. One can only hope for the best. Expecting the worst.

I feel like it's important to get BWP 90 minutes... And hopefully get him going..

Usually he's a stud all regular season and then fizzles out come playoffs. Well he has been rested and has been cautiously used as to have him healthy for the playoffs... In a way his season started in late July.. So now just need to get him back on the scoreboard.. If Royer can be on point and Kaku keeps playing well and then BWP starts to score in the playoffs I like Metro chances... Those three have to be in good form


FYI hes not 100% healthy.

He said that the pain is bearable enough where he can play and contribute.

As a reminder, we have wom every match to close the regular season since 2008. In 2008, we lost but made it to the MLS Cup. Win/Win?

We will make MLS Cup only to lose it.

Just like we beat Portland and Philly only to lose a shot at a home playoff game to the scum...at home.

But dont worry guys. This team is so together. More together than any team ever togethered ever before. Their togetherness is better than any other teams together...

...together.

We still would have found a way to lose.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Last DC game was probably our last home game. Welp.

I mean who knows if fcc do us a favor could get tasty at halftime.

Being totally honest Id like to see how mls deals with us playing at rfk on a sat Sunday with us bringing at least 1k.

Theyre hid behind weekday games since rfk cause theyre scared.
