i dont think that's completely fair.  You compare the expected goals from today, to most of the other games we played this season and today blew it out of the water.  Philly didn't get too many good looks today besides the first half breakaway save Robles made and the Kemar block in second half.  Watching the game I thought we were noticeably better on defense.  They had an expected goal of under .7 in the game.
We are not in "Supporters Shield" mode, but its better than the garbage we saw recently

Id also throw the Parker clearance play in that category of nervy moments, but Im in total agreement with you. We limited their high danger chances and the defense made smart and skillful plays to extinguish the fires when they did occur. Even in the most dominant of performances, its very difficult to escape a game without allowing 1 or 2 dangerous opportunities. The backline put in a very good performance tonight and hopefully 2 positive trends could be developing: Long starting to look like 2018 Long and Duncan starting to look like a serviceable RB.

4 may still be enough, but we'll need help from Chicago (maybe) or Columbus (unlikely). And still obviously need to do our part vs DC next week.

TFC also has the Canadian Championship against Montreal on Wednesday, so possibly a little fatigue from schedule congestion, depending on how they roll their lineups.

We need 6 points. If we only get 4, TFC can overtake us as they are only a point behind right now.

You are correct, thought they were sitting on 45 points for some reason.

DC's last game is home to Cincy. So if we don't win this, kiss the home game goodbye...
And potentially, even if we win this.

Yep. We need to win this and get a draw in Montreal to guarantee us the home game. On the bright side, we would clinch having more wins than the Scum, should we beat them this Sunday. Thus, wed have the first tiebreaker and would only need a draw in Montreal, assuming they beat Cincy. All that being said, I dont have much confidence in us ever getting a result in Montreal.

it'll suck if they bring 1000+ and park them under the roof in the northside upper deck on Sunday. Won't bode well. 

That sure didnt end up being the case. Looked they like brought roughly as many as we had in the PNW. Maybe a hair more. My estimation was 150, at the very most.
