Here it is! Your chance to break down an MLS Cup final and rate the players one last time in 2016. Who knew we would make it this far? Who knew how many times we’d have to decide between giving a 6 or a 7, or try to figure out what constitutes an average referee performance?
They say defense wins championships — did the Sounders’ defensive players win this match? Sure, there were few good chances to score on Toronto FC, but there were lots of close moments, so how do you rate the likes of Jordan Morris and Nelson Valdez?
Thank you, everyone, for participating in the community ratings this season!
Now, lets resist the urge to give all 10’s, together. There we go...deep breath.
Here's the scale:
(Substitutes can be left blank if the player did not play enough to judge)
1 - not a pro (USL/NASL/MLS) quality performance
4 - average USL starter
6 - average MLS starter
9 - MLS All Star
10 - MLS MVP-quality performance
