with 4 to play 2022 is top 10/27 in team history
Also, we are 3/4 in the East and top 5 in league. 


Truth is that we have not had many good years.
Top 3 were Shields, then a few decent years.
A big gap in PPG between 8th & 10th. This year 9th.

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

We won 3 shields and have been in the league's top half for over a decade. We've had plenty of good years, more than possibly every team in the league.

 

We've had many, many shitty playoffs.

Your definition is obviously different from mine.
A good year is winning more than half your games.

I kind of enjoyed being good enough to make the playoffs for 13 straight years along with best home record 2010-2019. 

The end of the seasons have kinda been a miss though - each in its own special way ;_(

By that standard, there have been 7 seasons where the Supporters Shield winner didn't have a good year.

Come on. Soccer isnt like every other American sport where ties are just not accepted. Plenty of good seasons where teams win and draw more than they lose.

All but one.

Last year,  only one team won more than half their games.  Getting half your points is more relevant in soccer than winning half your games, and aligns with 1.5 ppg being the traditional threshold for making the playoffs.   Right now, only four teams in the league have won half their games.    

 

In the regular season,  winning half your points is a good year, winning more than half your games is a great year.

I stand by my opinion.

A PPG of 2 is a good year IMO.

So far this year, we have won 13, not won 17.
I do not consider that a good record.

In the past 10 years, only 7 teams have gotten that.   That's not good, that's great.   

 

You are saying that in 5 the last 10 seasons, not a single team in all of MLS had a good year.

 

You're just trolling now.

68 points out of 102. So, 20 Ws + 8 Ds in 34 games.
Or, 22 Ws & 2Ds, etc. Should be the Shield standard.
Teams winning 17x to be the best is not impressive.

You're just trolling now.


We are also going to disagree on the definition of trolling.
I am expressing an opinion and standing by it.
You can disagree, but resorting to name-calling should be beneath you. There are enough clowns here.

A 68-point season has happened 6 times in league history. That total was the single-season points record from 1998 until 2017.
