    Default Other MLS Games - Decision Day - Oct 23

    All games on Sunday, all kicking off at the same time.


    Houston @ Colorado

    Rapids in with a good shout at the Supporter's Shield - behind in points but Dallas has the much tougher game. Motivation for Houston is the same motivation for the Fire against us - look good for next season.


    San Jose @ SKC

    Probably, hopefully, Dom Kinnear's last game with SJE. An SKC win could vault them into 4th but a loss could see them drop below the red line.


    FCD @ LAG

    Game of the day. FCD needs only a point to secure the Shield. Diaz out for the season but they had a good result in CCL this week. LAG has nothing to play for at all as they can't be anywhere but 3rd.


    RSL @ Seattle

    Simple - Lose and you might not get into the playoffs. Win, and you get a home game for the knockout round. A tie could mean both teams play away knockout matches.


    Portland @ Vancouver

    Very simple - Portland win, they are in the playoffs. Anything else and they are out. Vancouver is now focusing on playing NYRB in March next year in the CCL.


    Montreal @ NER

    Drogba play on turf? Unlikely. NER needs a miracle being down by 12 in goal differential to Philly. Realistically, Montreal needs a win to move up for a home match in the knockout round.


    Columbus @ NYCFC

    Simple for NYCFC - win and they get 2nd. Tie or lose and they hope for us to not beat the Fire. CBus made it interesting near the end of their game against NYRB but before that stunk out the joint. A trip to Yankee stadium as the last game of the season is not going to be a very fun time for them.


    DCU @ Orlando

    DCU wants a win here to get that 4th slot and the home game in the middle of the week. Orlando is playing for pride. Fan support in Orlando has been slipping since the summer. They might get only 15K for this match.


    NYRB @ Philly

    Red Bulls are horrid away but Philly has been playing horrid for weeks now. The Union can't go anywhere here so are likely just to be avoiding a big loss and looking for a positive game.

    Hoping short bus can help us out this weekend but realistically I can't see it happening, not at yankee stadium anyway. MAYBE if it was played at MAPFRE but at the end of the day we put ourselves in this predicament dropping all those points at home.

    Yes it's a long shot and I'm dreaming, however I'm hoping for a Galaxy loss so that we finish ahead of them and thus increase the odds of us hosting the final

    Portland's loss to Vancouver was eerily similar to TFC's infamous 2009 final game against the Red Bulls.

    LA tied, so TFC ends up ahead of them in the overall standings...

    MLS craziness on display. Neither of last year's MLS Cup finalists make the playoffs this year. TFC end only 7 points off the Supporters Shield. Think back to the games lost while a man up.... the last 5 games at home... It easily could have been TFC at the top.

    Weird Scheduling on the Division Finals...West games are on Sunday the 20th/27th. East games are midweek Tuesday 22nd Wednesday the 30th.

    MLS Cup Final December 10th.
