Thought the single elimination was the correct choice

Every game was heavy in emotion and bite.

Union Red Bull's was nuts. Andre Blake was awful and was bailed out by the comeback.

I don't see it with Aaronson yet. He got bullied off the ball a few times and looks to still be figuring out the physicality of the league. However he's so smooth on the ball and he's got the creative spark.

DC got ran over you could kinda tell they wanted to go on holiday.

El Trafico on Thursday. Can't wait

I was able to catch RSL and Portland Timbers and that was a very good game, the level of play was higher than I am used to seeing in MLS. Single elimination way better than home/away, everything goes on the table and players fight until their legs fall off. Also looking forward to LA vs LAFC hope I am able to watch it.

How could ref, linesman and VAR...completely blow the offsides call on Vela's second goal...that was crazy.

Great game and great performance from the Sounders. Clinical and defended well. Twellman said it well LAFC had minimal chances.

A great season from Vela and the boys. SS is still a trophy to be proud of.

Yeah, Schmetzer is great at tactically setting up his team D...really his strongest suit.

But LA midfield was sooo bad protecting the top of the box area in front of their back line...really awful gaps.

Really rare to see such a ridiculous level of finishing in one game...all shots on the run from fast open play...just split second chances to get the shot off...right inside the pipe...unbelievable. Seattle played to the max of their capability...practically flawless game.

Hmmm...would be the end of Trapp but it could mean more Roldan. Tough one
