But who is LAFC's jersey sponsor.
Please be Tesla.
This is an interesting move considering they haven't been awarded a franchise yet.
You guys should be announcing jerseys soon right? I mean like really really soon no?
PORTLAND TIMBERS HAVE CLINCHED A BERTH IN THE MLS PLAYOFFS
They clinched thanks to a 4-0 win at home over DC United.
O D D Y E A R
We're back. You're welcome.
Cascadia is about to hold top 3 in the West. Its time for all of us to be insufferable together. :)
When do we start being insufferable again???!!
SEATTLE SOUNDERS FC HAVE CLINCHED A BERTH IN THE MLS PLAYOFFS
They clinched thanks to a 4-0 win at home over FC Dallas.
Nico also clinched 3rd most fouled player in a single season in MLS history (104). Can he make it to #1? Find out next week, same bat time, same bat channel!
Nine years in a row. Longest active streak, one short of all-time record.
Even more impressive when you recognize that playoffs are harder to make now than in the past. LA made the playoffs ten times in a row from '96 through '05 including finishing ninth out of ten teams in 2003 (four teams from each conference made the playoffs, and LA finished ahead of Dallas but behind everyone else). Seattle have been upper-half of the league every single one of the past eight years, and will be upper half this year as well no matter how the final matchday goes.
If Portland wins, they take the Cup (and first in the West). If Portland ties or loses, Seattle takes the Cup.
Poor Birnbaum. Hope he’s ok.
Holy shit it looked like Birmbaum died. Hope he's ok
I would have had no objection. He was out cold.
He probably had no idea there was a head injury, I sure didn't notice it live

Toronto FC has equalled the 1998 LA Galaxy's record for most points in an MLS season, with 68
Still one week to go... against us.
Dope. Now rest Jozy and Gio next Sunday. Let's not play each other in the playoffs until the Conference Finals.
Galaxy only played 32 games in the 1998 season.
We'll rest them... But only if you let us win anyways.
Sorry Atlanta but we gotta break the record!

That should definitely have been a free kick for the Impact.
Edit: And now that's a controversy.
Hassan Camara taking a free kick on goal should be illegal by Canadian law
Terrific troll job having TFC supporters throwing the shield into the air to cheers and fireworks as the Montreal Impact line up right behind them

Not gonna lie, that horn was hilarious.
Well this is the most exciting 0-0 I've seen in a while. GG NYRB.
Can we interview the coach who actually dressed up for the game in a stunning track suit? Geez.
That's why I'm not impressed with Carleton, even at 17, he can't beat out a 13 year old for a starting spot.
Merritt Paulson opened a tab for us at a local bar. I may abuse this. TOP SHELF BABY.
Woooo championssssss. Not a pretty game, but that’s how championship games can go. TWO STARS
Well, that was enough to make me forget about the USMNT. Woohoo!
I'd laugh if it wasn't so depressing
It's always Sunil in usmnt headquarters.
Lookin like a bunch of Jabronis out there
They didn't drink their fight milk beforehand.
