Such a stupid fucking schedule. Switch to single game elimination and get everything done before the November international break.

Also fuck Columbus, fuck Austin, and certainly fuck Atlanta.

"Hey, we won the Supporters Shield and our first playoff series! Sweet!"

"Good job! Here's your reward; a Thursday night home conference final decider on 3 days rest!"

This fuckin league sometimes.

Well looks like we'll have to go in there and get the win.

 

Definitely a shitty fixture, maybe they can change it, but Atlanta doesn't have me too worried.

 

They still haven't beaten a good team all season.


Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

I'll be making the trip down to Atlanta, sucks that it's Thanksgiving weekend so flights seem more expensive. Might drive instead but I can't make up my mind right now cause I'm too excited from the game still. Have a few hotels booked at least.

RBNY were missing Robles for their 3-1 win over Atlanta in May, and were without both Adams and BWP for the 2-0 win at the end of September so the dominance over Atlanta hasn't even come with full strength squads

Leg 1 should be this upcoming Sunday afternoon, and leg 2 the following one after Thanksgiving.

There is no desire amongst any of the remaining teams for their players to head off to these international dates and potentially pick up injuries. They should be ignored (what's the point of these friendlies anyway? To figure out who to send with the B-squad to the Gold Cup next summer, or the World Cup 4 years from now?). Garber is a bad commissioner for not recognizing this.

The only team that worries me is kc.

We should be able to beat atl. They have not been able to figure out the press and I just dont see Portland's defense being able to perform well.

Playing in that dome will not be easy. We won down there earlier in the season, but Atlanta had their fair share of chances. The defense will need to come up big yet again. They have all year, but I argue this will be their toughest test.

"There's so much you can accomplish in the soccer world, and right now I'm focused on having a good season with the Red Bulls. Ultimately, our goal is to win the MLS Cup, and I see no reason why we can't." - #4 Tyler Adams

The defense will need to come up big yet again. 

The classic away dilemma in a 2-legged series.
Do you play aggressively and risk getting blown out?
Or play conservatively, to limit any possible damage?
Conceding a goal in Cbus put us all in a funk.
Fortunately, our team showed its mettle at home.

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

We need to score away goals this time. Obviously I would love for them to win the game outright in leg 1 but I would be just as happy to leave there with a 2-2 or 3-3 draw.

Definitely going to the first leg in Atlanta.  I'll be checking back here on where to get tickets, if through one of our supporters groups?  Thanks.

Even a 2-1 away loss is a pretty good result with away goals.
