Who wins this playoff series? These teams played some great games in the regular season.

Pontius is one of my favorite players in the league and I love watching De Leon and Najar. That being said, the Red Bulls are too strong right now. I think they take this series

DC has the foundations for success in the years ahead, however.

As long as they keep McCarty in the middle of the field, I like the Red Bulls in this series as well. Lloyd Sam going down was a major blow to their MLS Cup hopes, though. This team is slow and doesnt offer much width.

Agreed - fallen off the MLS train a bit this year but I did watch DC this weekend.

Obviously DeRosario being out hurts and the D can be questionable at times. Given the talent and depth that NY has, it would take something special from United to win. One of DC's designated players, Boskovic (sp?), hasn't lived up to par, nor has Salihi, who they picked up from Austria. While Pajoy was a good pick up, hopefully they can structure the team around young players like Najar & Kitchen (among others) and get some better talent around them. A European veteran in the middle, whether CB or CM, could make the difference in this team.

Also big fans of Pontius & DeLeon - hope they become bigger factors in the USMNT discussion for the future.

I'm actually going to the game tonight. The Red Bulls will probably blow it but the tables are really set up nice for them. I think they take Houston too

And if DC wins? Will they get past Houston you think?

It blows my mind that Backe has kept his job for so long. He has taken a team stacked with talent and quality all over the field and has made them mediocre.

I am taking DC. I originally said that DC and Seattle will meet in the Championship game, and I am sticking with that.

Was hoping for RSL to get past SEA but I'll take a DC/SEA final. DeLeon one for the future.

Dude is awful. Cannot believe he started Marquez. And as soon as he got his first yellow card, Backe should have taken him off the field. Completely reckless and detrimental to this squad. Marquez too.

AND WHAT WAS ROY MILLER EVEN DOING ON THE FIELD AT THE END OF THE GAME, LET ALONE TAKING THAT FREE KICK INSTEAD OF HENRY!!!

Oh to be a RBNY supporter.


The young soccer careers of Rubio Rubin and Brady Scott are headed in completely opposite directions.
