It’s the business end of the MLS season!
My LA Galaxy won the Supporters Shield which is awarded to the team with the best record, which would be a league title equivalent in England. I’m also a Spurs fan and have been for decades and I wouldn’t change anything about how champions are decided in the Premiership but personally I like the format of the MLS, I think it works for us.
With that obligatory statement out of the way I’ll say there’s some tasty ties early, I’m looking at Dallas led by Brek Shea and Henry’s Red bulls to kick off the play-in-round. First round starts on the 26th and the winners will determine the next round, the lowest seeded winner will play the Galaxy and the highest will play Kansas City. The Galaxy and Seattle have been the two best teams this season and possibly the favorites to win it all, though LA’s form lately worries me. It’s hard to tell how we’ll perform because we’ve been messing with the lineup lately to rest players.
