The Columbus Crew are the sensation of the 2014 MLS season and their winger Ethan Finlay is arguably the revelation of the year. Coming off a playoff clinching weekend, we get to know the ex-college superstar who's finally earning praise from the likes of Thierry Henry after two tough seasons to start his pro career. Which national team will he represent -- USA or Canada? And what's with his fascination with The Settlers of Catan?
The other big storylines from the weekend involve the battle for the 5th spot in the West -- Vancouver vs. Portland. Were the Timbers just unlucky? Should the Whitecaps have pushed harder in San Jose? And the Showdown for the Shield goes down to the final weekend: Is Saturday's match vs. LA Galaxy truly the biggest game in Seattle Sounders history?
Plus, which artist do you want to send you off into the sunset at your retirement party? Would Toronto FC ever trade Michael Bradley? And is there a scenario where New England's Lee Nguyen can actually win the MVP award?
