    Columbus could win in Atlanta, and NYRB could definitely win in Chicago. As long as NYRB win, let the other bracket beat themselves up.

    I'd almost be more worried about Columbus frankly.

    So we won't play Chicago and NYCFC won't play NYRB.

    I would have been interested in a NYRB/NYCFC matchup.

    I have to figure we will know away game date wednesday night. That's why the 3 v 6 games are first. They arent going to make some teams play Thursday / Sunday (3 days) and others Wednesday / Tuesday (5 days)

    Vs NYRB monday
    Vs CLB/ATL Halloween.

    I agree on the results although I still think Altanta is no guarantee.

    Chicago 2-1 New York
    Atlanta 0-2 Columbus
    Vancouver 3-1 San Jose
    Houston 0-1 Kansas City

    Atlanta is the second best team in the league IMO - but it will have been 83 days or something since the Crew's last loss at kickoff and there is going to be an insane amount of nervous energy in that stadium.

    NYCFC beats Columbus and we beat NYRB. Then we meet Portland in the MLS Cup! (I know I am getting a little ahead of the thread here!)

    This is the exact scenario I think we want. I posted mid September that would be a best case scenario for us. Portland is good, but not so much on the road. Portland also allows a lot of goals... pick your poison, but we should be hoping for Houston or Portland.

    Task at hand is to wait patiently for the Red Bulls to beat Chicago.

    I'll choose winning it all over revenge. I'd prefer an easier fixture. Frankly, though, with how we did in Atlanta, I feel this team can beat anybody if in form.

    OK then....

    I am rooting for Chicago and Atlanta this week, then rooting for Chicago against NYCFC, we'll take care of Atlanta and then pummel Chicago in the conference final.

    But then I want Seattle.

    Chicago 1-2 New York (The Fire have backed into the playoffs while NYRB are on a streak)
    Atlanta 3-0 Columbus (I think Columbus will be disjointed, but regardless, Precourt/MLS doesn't want another game at the stadium because they know what the reaction is going to be on TV)
    Vancouver 2-1 San Jose (San Jose is more of a sieve than Vancouver, but that never say die mentality...)
    Houston 0-1 Kansas City (SKC's defence will lock down and Houston will make one error at the back. Though I could see this going to penalties)

    The one thing with the second legs for the Western Conference is Seattle's home game is actually on Thursday November 2nd now (as the Seahawks have a home game on the 5th).

    I'm going to say Red Bulls over Chicago. Think Chicago peaked too early and NY is well rested. Think they can give us trouble too, which they did in that 4-2 game despite the score.

    Atlanta wins. They're pretty solid at home.

    Vancouver beats San Jose. I honestly thought San Jose was the worst team we saw at BMO this year. Looked like a lower Championship team to a top Premier team compared to us. If Vancouver can't beat them at home they should never have made the playoffs.

    And Houston over KC. KC backed in and Houston is good at home. Melia injury will hurt KC.

    My two cents.

    ^If NYRB win tonight, we get them, probably Monday

    Otherwise we get the Atlanta-Columbus winner, probably Tuesday

    Given that howler, looks like Monday in New Jersey!

    But no matter what our playoff game at home is on the 5th, correct? I'd forgotten how complicated this all is.

    I guaranteed the Red Bulls would win.

    And I think the Crew will win tomorrow because it is an awkward starting time in Atlanta
