    Clearly, the league knows that come playoff time, we're an "effing good team that effing works" so we won't need extra time.

    If jozy,piartti, Oso, richie, Omar healthy TFC is the best team in the league. If few of those guys injured TFC is an average team at best

    Yep, I agree with that stevep. I've always felt that man games lost to injury is such an underrated and overlooked stat when it comes to team sports.

    Look what happens in the NBA if a team even loses just one of its best players to injury, and if it's 2 then that team is hard pressed to continue to perform at or above when those players went out. Not impossible, but really tough.

    Our full, healthy starting 11 can take on any team in the league, toe to toe. Yep, I get it injuries happen in team sports and the coach/manager should have the ability to "work with what he's got", but that only goes so far with MLS's cap structure/etc.

    Just my blurry eyed still waking up drinking coffee perspective

    p.s. very much looking forward to settling in on friday evening to catch the 2 play in round games, and for me it's a toss up between all 4 teams with it being a one off. Anything could happen, and typically the best team in the game doesn't always win (as we know too well :P )

    Not much else they can do.

    But can you imagine if this is how a team actually wins the MLS Cup final?

    Bonkers.

    It looks like players returning from international duty don't have to quarantine if they test negative (Pizzaro being one of them for Miami). So this could for sure play a part in affecting some of the teams.

    Is it the player or the team's decision to let them go and play for country? I think i saw somewhere that no one from MLS was selected for the US Men's national team during this break (could be wrong though) because they are about to enter playoffs and didn't want to disrupt any teams

    ^^If a national team calls a player, FIFA rules require the club team to permit the player to go.

    FIFA allowed an exception if the COVID quarantine rules either by the league or home country would require the player to quarantine for an extended period of time upon returning from international duty. I forget what the exact length of time was.

    On TSN's Playoff preview last night, they interviewed Greg Vanney. Apparently there's only one "question mark" on the injury front, with everyone else good to go. Hopefully that means Piatti and Delgado are ready. Caldwell and KJ aren't sure which player is the question mark.

    If that's the case, I'd love to see Delgado/Osorio/Poz/Piatti start in the midfield. Bradley to the bench for this one!

    What was Morrow's injury? I feel like it might be him who is the question mark.

    He's had so many this season it's hard to keep track. I think a leg injury of some sorts.

    Interested to see how these guys play on game day. Certainly they may be able to see the field but they may not be fully 100% or in form.

    Let’s hope for the best. The break should have been helpful.

    Bono being the question mark would be the best case scenario. Piatti being back would be huge.

    Miami journos indicating Miami is going to be scraping the barrel to get enough subs.


    More & more looking like Nashville will be our opponent - they are VERY well organized & tough to break down. 24 goals for, 22 against. A stifling midfield & opportunistic attack.

    Rather than asking who do we want to play, who do we want Philly to play Montreal or Nashville?

    Probably Nashville. But that is likely our matchup.

    As far as I know the Reds have been training all week and does it not seem a little quiet on that front? Not a single social media post, video etc from training, kind of strange if you ask me. With the Reds back in Toronto for the week, you would have thought they would have been trying to build up interest in the playoff game next week.

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!

    Tajon Buchanan has been the best player on the field tonight. Interesting to see him line up as a RB tonight too. The national team might of went from having no full backs to having too many in the span of two years. Now if only we could develop one decent centerback.

    Beautiful volley from Gil to make it 1-0 for the Revs.

    Looks like we have NE in Hartford. Are they allowing fans, less than 2 hrs from Boston.

    Which would be a miracle at this point. Are they missing literally all their big players?
