Bradley better wake up, he’s been pretty poor with the ball the last 5 minutes or so

Apparently if Columbus scores and the game ends at 1-1, Crew advance because they scored more away goals in the series than TFC did.

Oh yeah. That's why TFC advanced last round because they had more away goals.

Seems strange.

Wow. That was close.

Toronto’s defensive communication is non existent. Couple really close calls. Just need to hang on one more minute

Does MLS cup have two legs or is it just one game? The way the announcers are talking it sounds like one game.

That will be intense. I found the game pretty boring but the last ten minutes and stoppage time was fun.

Looks like it's a TFC / Seattle rematch. TFC haven't looked good at all in these playoffs, and they still are going to MLS Cup. Also, Clint Dempsey is a massive ####.

It's kind of the reverse of last year. I could see TFC coming out tentative but defensively solid and this thing hitting extra time. I'd much prefer if they went on a long overdue scoring tear, but it hasn't been there for weeks.

Diego Valeri wins MVP in a landslide.

Obviously, Toronto players splitting the vote didn't help their cause, but this was a well-deserved honor. Valeri stepped up when the primary #9, Fanendo Adi went down, and helped to secure the #1 seed in the West. 21 goals, 11 assists, 9 game goal scoring streak. #1 Thorns fan. Could likely be elected mayor of Portland.

The man is a pillar of the community, in every measurable way. To be able to see his contributions to Portland on a personal level is a pleasure.




My only Christmas request this year if for Toronto FC to beat the brakes off of the flounders. Please make it so.

Don’t know much about soccer but it sure looks like Seattle has a horseshoe up their ass again this year. TFC appears to be severely out playing them.

Seattle look like they are just trying to limp to PKs again playing anti football (and failing).

I think tfc will break them this half.

TFC needs to be better on transition game and counter attacks. They were great in the first half breaking Seattle's possession but TFC was too slow to progress thereafter. Lack of overlapping at the wingers and subsequent players movement did not favor a direct scoring opportunity.

Are they failing if it's 0-0? They look like they might get exactly what they wanted. What a disaster this would be if Toronto can't get one.

I don't know if I can stomach another PK loss. It's so hard to lose that way.
