Up 12 points from 18% before the game.

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

Take the PPG of the last place playoff team by PPG and see how much they'll have at the end of the season with that number.

Right now that's MTL. We need to beat 48.58. We need a lot of points and people to drop them.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

5w 15 points
4 w and a 2 tie 14 might do it

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

NYC-NASH now @ RBA. BoyCity D or L helps us.
PHI-Cbus @ 4. Again, a D helps us.

City just had their third straight game without scoring. If we can win our game in hand against Miami then the derby would be an opportunity to go level with them on points. Unimaginable a month ago to even be discussing the possibility.

Castellanos with more dirty play that goes unreviewed by VAR. DisCo likely to give another suspension. Studs up on a goalkeeper. Would be helpful for us (and our players' bodies).

NYC D leaves them on 40 with DC & MON.
Cbus & Miami lost, leaving them behind us.
A W over Miami on 10/9 would give us 37 points,
only 3 points behind 5th-8th places with 6 to play.

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

We now have a 1% chance to win the MLS Cup, which is up from <1%. Woot!

Need 1.93 for the rest of the season to hit that number.

Agreed. Did what we needed to do in order to keep hope alive by taking 6 points from Cinci and Miami. Need to take it a step further.
