Need help figuring out what needs to be done in order for the Sounders to advance to their second straight MLS Cup Final? Well, here you go. It’s pretty simple actually: don’t get blown out at home.

Matt Doyle breaks down the Sounders-Dynamo game and mentions what needs to be done in order for Houston to beat Seattle, kind of.


Want to know what either Toronto FC or Columbus Crew SC need to do to advance to MLS Cup? Take a look; it’s pretty simple as well.

The Portland Timbers had plans to upgrade their baseball err, soccer stadium. They had hoped that the renovations wouldn’t begin until December, but some good fortune is allowing them to start early!

Speaking of renovations, take a look at five teams that need almost complete makeovers according to FourFourTwo.

The 2017 MLS season still has a few weeks left in it, but LAFC is pursing players like it’s 2018. This time, it’s Mahmoud “Trezeguet” Hassan. Hassan, 23, currently plays in Turkey for Kasimpasa on loan from Belgian side Anderlecht.


It’s a strange time in NWSL. A few months short from beginning their sixth season, they have had one team cease operations and another team looking for new ownership, while also seeding at least one new team in conjunction with RSL.

Apparently, if you recently played for the Vancouver Whitecaps 2, you will soon be a member of FC Cincinnati’s roster. It’s like, a rule, or something. This time it is goalkeeper Spencer Richey making the move.

FC Cincinnati is still looking for money to fund a stadium. It sounds like funding just hit another snag.

At the end of the year, CONCACAF will announce their Female Player of the Year. You can have a hand in deciding who that player may be. You have until Dec 13 to vote.

It’s also the same for CONCACAF’s Male Player of the Year.
