I thought Sigi put in a wonderful year.

One question from this game though: why bring in Marco Pappa so late? Seattle created so many chances once he came on, it was puzzling why he only got 15 mins to get a goal.

Also Fulham and Southampton were scouting out Nguyen. Fulham watched him yesterday and Southampton watched him at Red Bull Arena.

@2tone- I thought you guys play on artificial turf because the grass doesn't grow right for soccer in your rainy environment?? Or is that not true?
Also, you got eliminated on a deflection from game 1. Change? Really? You could change into an uncompetitive team like my club, the Fire, I don't think you want that.

I think most neutrals wanted to see Landycakes in the final. They have gotten their wish, this is a good game. I like how that asshole Kraft is going from LA to San Diego for 2 games that day, the successful prick.

Rooting for LA for the first time ever- still pissed about the JJ fiasco.

Zardes isn't shit, what are you all blathering about?? Still not seeing it...

Who told you that's why they play on artificial turf? The Seahawks stadium used to be grass.

No that's just an untrue excuse. Grass grows just fine in Seattle for soccer.

Yes Seattle needs some changes. And no Seattle will never be the Fire because Seattle owners and thousands of fans care about the team.

Hey don't be so smarmy guy, we used to have "thousands of fans that cared" but then we moved from downtown to a SSS way out in Bridgeview. Didn't work out so well. Maybe you will be going strong in 20 years, maybe not. But don't take it for granted. We have a strong fan base but I guess you are correct about the owner, Hauptmann blows.

As for the rain, that's what I heard. I also hate turf.

Yeah, I always thought it bizarre that in Seattle of all places where it rains constantly (the London of the US) that they don't have grass.

It's a bit of an embarrassment that MLS allows turf. Should be one pretty simple change they can make to gain credibility. Hell of a lot easier than waving a magic wand and making all of the teams instantly better.

With New England signing Jermaine Jones I dont think New England lets Nyugen go unless its for some serious cash. New England is planning to compete for the next couple years and it would be a huge blow to lose a guy like Nyugen.


I actually think NE will cash in on Nguyen while his value is at its peak. They have Rowe who can slide into his role and then go with Mullins or Fargundez in Rowe's wide spot. NE has so much attacking depth now with Bunbury and Davies in addition to the other three. It makes good business sense to cash in on his value now. They'll still be one of the top teams in the East next year.

I applaud MLS for scheduling the game a week earlier because I got tired of that stupid jimmyv.org logo (I know its a charity) but they messed up on the time slot

The game is going to be at noon? Seriously MLS? You are basically competing with the last hour of the early NFL games and then the later NFL games that come on an hour later.

Everyone in the bay area will be tuned in to the 49ers vs Raiders game!

Why not have the game 3:30pm? (west coast)

Unfortunately the MLS is going in the wrong direction. Atlanta's team will play on turf and if Minnesota gets a club they'd also play on turf along with all three Pacific Northwest clubs and the Revs.

Not really related to this thread but I was going trough 2015/16 champs league and galaxy, seattle, and DC united are qualified already, I'm not sure why dc united is, and also if Galaxy win the cup RSL will qualify because of their supporter chield standing. I think is stupid NE revolution should qualify even if they lose.

DC United are in because they were the Eastern Conference Regular season winners. The four US Spots go to the MLS Cup champions, the US Open Cup champions, the Western Conference regular season winners and the Eastern Conference regular season winners (one of these will naturally be the Supporter's Shield Champions).

The Galaxy are qualified right now because the Sounders have qualified twice (Supporter's Shield and US Open Cup) and the Galaxy have the next best regular season record. If the Galaxy win the MLS Cup then RSL qualifies because they have the next best regular season record.

Additionally, the US gets 4 spots and Canada gets 1 spot. So there's a scenario, however unlikely, whereby Vancouver wins the West, Toronto wins the East, Montreal wins the MLS Cup and FC Edmonton wins the Canadian Championship.

If that went down in 2015 then in the 2016-17 CCL the only Canadian team would be FC Edmonton with the next 3 best US based MLS teams qualifying along with the US Open Cup winners instead of the three Canadian teams that outperformed them (in this hypothetical scenario).

That's not in anybody's interest as the best teams should be in the CCL. For qualification spots that are solely based on MLS results the US and Canada should share the spots and let the results run their course. Both countries would still be guaranteed at least one team via their domestic cups.

If you ask me I think the teams to qualify should be the supporter chield winners, us open cup, MLS cup Champs and runner ups. In a scenario if a team repeats either then the runner up should go, and if a team is champion of 2,3, or all then you go by order of playoff standings after the champion. Is pretty complicated just like the Liga MX playoffs pumas, America finished 1-1 aggregate but America advance because they had a better regular season if that was the case with MLS Seattle would of gone trough.

It makes the regular season mean something when the two regular season conference winners can make the CCL.

In no way should the runners up of MLS Cup be awarded a CCL berth. I am quite glad MLS did away with that.

New England will just have to win the Cup.
