I foresee Portland presenting a DP contract to Nagbe with in the next 2 years. He is definitely a star in this league and deserves a DP type of contract. He won't be eligible to apply for citizenship for another 25 months. Which puts him possibly gaining citizenship December of 2015 or January of 2016. I was hopeful he would gain citizenship before the 2015 Gold Cup.

I really hope tomorrows games are good as well.


What a game tonight. Nagbe is a stud. We have 2 players on this league we have to keep no matter what and not let them go to Europe. Nagbe and Fagundez.

Yeah ill write than down

Your analogy was beyond weak. Thats like a runner coming on here and saying a soccer player wouldn't last running a 26.2 K marathon.

Your probably scared to go to bed because the football lines will be chasing you in your sleep ! LOL

Seattle got a GOLDEN goal at the end.. I still think timbers will take them out. Have no idea why nagbe went out. He is the star of the team.


They were winning 2-0, Zemanski is a defensive player and they have the return leg on Thursday. I have no issue with the sub as it their goal was to protect the lead and get Nagbe some rest.

The sub that I didn't understand was Shalrie Joseph for Moffat. Moffat was attacking pretty well and Seattle desperately needed a goal. I didn't understand how Joseph helps that cause but they got their goal nevertheless. Is Zakuani injured again? He didn't dress today but he's the type of sub that would have made sense in that situation.

Wait, so that's really true about away goals in MLS? That they aren't a factor? Jesus, they keep talking about raising the standards of the league and making them competitive with other top leagues in the world, yet this isn't a rule?

Bush-league is what that is.

Extremely disappointed with playoffs attendances. So terrible. Seattle was the most dissapointing if they can get 65k plus for a regular season game vs timbers im sure they could of gotten a record 70k for a playoff game. And no excuses like before.saying is a wkday. A damm sat night wknd not even matching their regulat season attendance. Portland deserves to go. Timbers army won the atmosphere at link field. They were loud.

I'm actually happy that away goals don't count. That rule has always been bush league

The whole purpose is that people consider penalties a bad way to decide a series but is away goals any better? Deciding certain goals count more than others is better?

Yes. Because it IS better than the alternative.

I love the away goals rule. It gives the away team (especially in the first leg) a reason to go forward and not just park the bus and wait for the return leg. If they can snag an away goal (or two as in Portland's case), it gives them a huge advantage heading back home, an advantage they rightfully deserve after playing so well on the road in a hostile environment.

It doesn't result in more goals. It usually results in the home team parking the bus at some point

One goal should = one goal, no matter what

Not a fan of away goals counting for more. A goal is a goal. And, no it doesn't make for more attacking soccer.

Anything that lessens the likelihood of penalties is a plus imo.

You're right. I think instead of away goals, goals scored outside the 18 should be worth 3 goals, header goals should be worth 1.5, free kicks should be worth 1.7, left footed goals 1.5, right footed goals 1.2, bicycle kick goals are worth 5 goals, a goal scored by a teenager is worth 3, a goal scored straight from a corner kick is worth 4

All I'm saying is that if MLS wants to start likening themselves to leagues from around the world, then do so. Away goals are a factor in seemingly every other league, why not make them a part of MLS? Because we want to be "different" and "special"? Gimme a break (please, no kit-kat jokes).
