    For all the talk of greatest MLS teams ever --- we still have yet to see an MLS team get close to (CanChamp/US Open Cup), Shield, MLS CUP, CCL Finals loss on Pks (and beating two Mexican giants to get there).....no one else has really been close in pulling off the Treble (never mind Quad)......the best shot to a comparable this year would be if LAFC can run the Mexican gauntlet, win CCL (or lose to Tigres on penalties in the Finals which would be the most MLS thing ever!), and then churn out an MLS Cup this year......to me they are the closest thing to the talent level of the 2017 TFC squad overall....After all these crazy results it just shows how much "luck" can go into this stuff.....oh Marky, if only you could have kept the ball down.....

    Very CONCACAF all that.

    US soccer media is going ga ga over LAFC, and in some ways they should as beating Leon is a big thing. But, Leon played very poorly in that game. LAFC having to go to the Azteca for the second leg will be an education, I think.

    Seattle going out is satisfying.

    I would not surprise me if the only MLS team in the Semis is Montreal.

    Very satisfying. Hey Seattle fans, how does it feel losing out to penalties?

    They do have the easiest trek now for sure. Should be an interesting round.

    I have been wondering if TFC management will ever try to match the 2017 club, seems like cutting payroll is the new agenda. Really no point participating in CCL if organisation is not willing to go all in.

    Wanyama is playing tonight on that concrete carpet in Montreal. He's doing a lot of awkward jogging

    Yup. We're right in there with the Whitecaps, Rapids, & Dallas.

    Montreal is doing some awkward defending too. Brault-Guillard just got made to look like a high school level defender.

    ^Henry knows crying about an obvious uncalled handball will just make him an object of ridicule in the entire sports world tomorrow.

    I think they might lead the Irish newscasts with this tomorrow, as it is.

    I've seen them given and I've seen them not given.

    Usually that's two separate incidents. But this is CONCACAF.

    Personally, I don't think it was a penalty simply because it hit his tucked in arm, not the extended overhead one - that would have made it an easy call.

    Saw something about this on "Instant Replay" on YouTube.

    https://youtu.be/Hv70rVLq4ZA?t=149

    Apparently the IFAB handball rule has changed.

    Handball Law 12 Changes

    • Deliberate handball remains an offence
    • The following ‘handball’ situations, even if accidental, will be a free kick:
    • the ball goes into the goal after touching an attacking player’s hand/arm
    • a player gains control/possession of the ball after it has touches their hand/arm and then scores, or creates a goal-scoring opportunity
    • the ball touches a player’s hand/arm which has made their body unnaturally bigger
    • the ball touches a player’s hand/arm when it is above their shoulder (unless the player has deliberately played the ball which then touches their hand/arm)


    The following will not usually be a free kick, unless they are one of the above situations:
    • the ball touches a player’s hand/arm directly from their own head/body/foot or the head/body/foot of another player who is close/near
    • the ball touches a player’s hand/arm which is close to their body and has not made their body unnaturally bigger
    • if a player is falling and the ball touches their hand/arm when it is between their body and the ground to support the body (but not extended to make the bodybigger)
    • If the goalkeeper attempts to ‘clear’ (release into play) a throw-in or deliberate kick from a team-mate but the ‘clearance’ fails, the goalkeeper can then handle the ball

    Jozy is savage... but if it was anyone other than montreal, there is no debating.


    • the ball touches a player’s hand/arm which has made their body unnaturally bigger (his top hand is flailing and his other arm, which the ball touched is off his body)


    And how in the world did the AR have a better view than the Referee to overturn it.

    Seeing Montreal(home) lose 2-1, NYCFC(home) losing 1-0 to Tigres, and Atlanta(Away) getting a thrashing of 3-0 against Club America. IS BITTER SWEET

    NYFC was the last live game, but I'm even glad I got together with my neighbour and watched this Impact game...nothing since then.
    I jog past the 'field of dreams' every evening and feel depressed...
