From ecstasy (Atlanta United) to agony (Red Bulls) and the middle ground in between (Timbers and Sporting KC), Leg 1 of the Conference Championships had a little something for everyone. Andrew, David and Matt jump in the Green Room to celebrate the Five Stripes and dig into Chris Armas' gameplan. Did New York overthink it ... again?

Then The Athletic's Paul Tenorio calls in just minutes after breaking Zack Steffen to Man City, and MLSsoccer.com's own bird dog, Sam Stejskal, explains why Tab Ramos is a prime candidate for the FC Dallas job. Plus, more on Orlando City parting ways with their GM, and the Galaxy's chase for the director of Mexico’s national teams to lead their soccer operations.

In the mailbag, the guys put together their Best XI of MLS managers. Who will play center back? It's a tough choice.
