Bring on the 2016 Audi MLS Cup Playoffs! Decision Day was over in a flash, and the Armchair Analyst is in studio for one last show to help digest it all and look ahead to midweek Knockout Round action.
How did FC Dallas get over the finish line on the way to the Supporters’ Shield and double? What happened to Portland as the Timbers flamed out in Vancouver? Is Seattle the favorite in the West? How crazy do you have to be to bet against Bruce and Landon in the playoffs? And that’s not even mentioning the Eastern Conference, where Toronto FC are targeting their first-ever playoff win, both sides of New York earned byes, Drogba drama continues and D.C. United are hitting their stride at just the right time.
Finally, it’s time for Knockout Round previews, plus the reasons why every playoff team will lift MLS Cup … or crash out.
