Sunday means another quadrupleheader of MLS action. Andrew, David and Matt preview all the matchups, but first they turn a critical eye to New York City FC, where Jason Kreis is out after two years – just one actually in the league – in charge. Does the move make sense? The red side of New York appears to be in good hands with Jesse Marsch, but D.C. United are ready to spring an upset. See what Red Bulls midfield Felipe has to say about that and the growth of MLS. Plus, can Columbus prove their regular-season success was no fluke or will Didier Drogba run rampant?

In the Western Conference, FC Dallas have plenty to prove as well. They’ll have to do it against a Sounder side that’s finally starting to look like the juggernaut that wrecked MLS earlier in the year. Meanwhile, in Vancouver, the Whitecaps are still trying to find that April form. Portland, according to the guys, are the favorite, and Darlington Nagbe is the protagonist. Plus, MLS end-of-season awards: Who deserves hardware and why?

Mailbag brings news from France, where Bob Bradley is reportedly a candidate for another job. David tries to revive the Ronaldinho rumors, and a Timbers fan bemoans free tickets. Seriously.
