Kaku will be out, but he was out last game too. Does anyone know why, just coach's decision?

play the people who are around to play in the next 1-2 games.  Put in defenders to defend the lead.


Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

Meara made some great saves to keep us from conceding an equalizer, as against NYCFC, or worse.
Our D has a habit of getting overrun, sometimes early and sometimes late in games.
Seeing out the TFC game could be seen as character building, or just luck.
I would love to see us get an early goal, or two.
I would hate to see us cough up a 2-goal lead,
but it would not be the first time.

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

I wish all the playoffs game were on network TV... It's the playoffs... The TUDN is just not that good.. If they were tighter on the play by play like on Fox Deportes or TyC Sports they'd make a boring game interesting..
I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.

Thank god we dont have to watch on TUDN. I hate their English broadcast.

Is Kaku a lock to make the Paraguay squad? I feel like he never plays with them...any chance they dont call him up?

He was already called up. Cant imagine hes long for this team anyway, unless Struber is adamant hes kept around. Rather sell at a loss than let him go for free.

I still don't understand why anyone listens to those broadcasts in English. Like, I don't know a word of Spanish beyond the absolute basics, and I never ever watch those broadcasts in anything other than Spanish. They're fucking terrible in English. You could mic me up in my living room after 6 beers and I would do a better job.

If I ever hear Ramses Sandoval refer to the field as "the green rectangle" again, I'd consider casting myself off a bridge.

I wish there were more updates and video from training.. I'd love to hear from the players leading up to this game...

While I'll always lean towards single table instead of almost all the league making the playoffs...

The playoffs gives everyone the same chance... Just win.. Get a 4 game winning streak and you're Champs.. It's really not impossible... Just have to prepare extremely well and play the best you possibly can and just be more intense and quicker mentally at reading than the game opponent...

They'd never do it b/c playoff TV money, but I think a version of the olllld MLB format would be exciting, at least for the teams in contention by the end:

 

- pendant/shield race in each half of the league

- top two teams of each half meet for a 2 game series to decide who goes to the finals

 

Would raise the significance of regular season games and highlight the Open Cup for knockout game excitement.


RED. BULL. OUT.

Per fivethirtyeight.com, we've got a 5% chance of making MLS Cup and a 2% chance of winning it.

 

Philly has a 24% chance of winning the Cup and a 100% chance of deciding the election  :P

It's not just TV money. Season over by August for all but 4 or 5 teams. If you're a fan of one of them, sure, it would be exciting. Everybody else tunes out and attendance plummets (admittedly not an issue at the moment).

Speaking of MLS Cup, if we somehow do get there, it would have to be at Kansas City or Dallas if we wanted to attend. The rest of the West doesn't appear to be having any fans.

I'm not sure what the mls cup final will be based on but if its points we would only host San Jose and Colorado. If its points per game it would only be San Jose. If it's seed number it would be LAFC and San Jose.

You're right you're right. Can't we just make a losers tourney for them or something?
