    Default MLS Playoff 2021 Thread

    So, the storylines are in & MLS is weird again


    West

    Both LA teams out

    Colorado top of the West gets an automatic birth into CCL next year.

    Vancouver gets in, plays SKC

    Seattle drops to second


    East

    NER loses at home twice to crappy teams - us & Miami - showing how much Arena cares about the season - has to play one of NYC or Atlanta in the second round - I'm predicting an upset right there

    CBus out, DCU out, Montreal out

    NYC gets another chance to win a home playoff game but this time doesn't face us

    Nashville looks beatable




    ******

    The 2 hot teams going into the playoffs?


    NYRB & Vancouver







    *************

    Matches are in 2 weeks after the international break

    They have recruited well. Gauld, Dajome, Caicedo, White, all good value for money. I thought Dos Santos had already turned it around via Gauld but Sartini does seem an excellent motivator. Same resume as Perez, basically, all youth dev up until now, first for the Calcio then the U.S. program.

    Dump some money in front of Robin Fraser. He can't be on a high salary. What he's done with Rapids is good.

    I hope Vancouver moves on but I think SKC drops 3 on them. Just my gut feeling. Funny enough the game I am most looking forward too, if it happens is Minnesota Colorado

    I used to think that & for much of this season I just couldn't.

    I enjoy seeing how the rest of the league operates & does things - provides perspective for our woes.

    I’ll watch the playoffs , Vancouver is a nice story a team with a new coach and very interesting coach at that ,coming into the season past the midway point and doing really well and guiding them to the playoffs. Moreover, some of the most crazy and exciting games I’ve watched over the years have been MLS playoff games with that Montreal Toronto series being one of the most exciting one. However, there have been others too over the years , anyways to each his own but I’ll be watching and looking forward to them.

    Weekend Predicts


    Sat

    NYRB @ Philly 2:38pm

    Energy drinks have been on a run to get into the playoffs...but the 2 weeks off time blunts that a bit. Philly has a bad playoff record. I'm going for the upset here. 3-2 NYRB



    Vancouver @ SKC 5:08pm

    See above but I think SKC gets it done. 2-0 for SKC


    Sunday


    Atl @ NYC 3:08pm

    Atlanta is fragile - nobody is scared of them. NYC seems quietly confident. In that barn box, NYC should get get it done. 2-1 NYC


    Min @ Portland 5:38


    2 underwhelming teams playing for the right to go to Colorado to get beat in the cold. Most likely game to go to pens. Portland wins on those

    I'll take Philly, Vancouver, NYCFC and Portland in those matchups.

    FYI

    Based on what I just heard from a shipping company we deal with, the Whitecaps may have issues the next few months getting in & out via planes.

    Call me crazy but I’m actually liking this NYCF Yankee stadium atmosphere, ya it’s a crazy set up for soccer at Yankee Stadium but it’s working today in terms of atmosphere.

    nycfc as expected defeats atlanta who did great to just get in the playoffs after their start to the season

    St. Clair getting the start for Minnesota with Miller out...nows the time to step up Dayne

    I avoided this thread until I could watch the Vancouver - KC highlights. Vancouver lost as expected but nobody even mentioned it here, LOL.

    Too bad, I was ready to root for Vancouver for a bit.

    Any playoff game in Yankee stadium is an event - its just different & has been since the old yard before this one.
