It all comes down to this, a season defined by a pandemic ends with the two best teams (our words … and Caleb Porter’s) playing for the 25th MLS Cup championship in the league’s history. Andrew, David and Charlie chat with Porter, Brian Schmetzer, Jonathan Mensah and Cristian Roldan and preview the match. All the hype, the best storylines, all the soccer wrinkles, player spotlights and, finally, predictions. Also, please note this was recorded before Darlington Nagbe and Pedro Santos were ruled out. Sigh, 2020.
