Last Word SC Radio: MLS Cup Conference Finals Updates And NASL Collapse
First off, Matt and the boys talk about the Seattle Sounders defeating the Colorado Rapids. We talk about what Seattle has going for them going into the final and what the Rapids need to change and keep in 2017. Also, there’s a decision to be made with Jermaine Jones.
Then Matt and Joe ask Blayne about the Montreal Impact‘s second leg match against Toronto FC. We talk about what the two sides did well and what will change in the second leg. They discuss Toronto’s three man back line and the Impact’s counter attack. The boys end by making predictions for the match.
Lastly, we discuss the New York Cosmos and their financial issues. We talk about what this means and if this is the NASL as we know it. We also discuss how this affects the USL, the American Soccer landscape, and MLS Expansion.
Share this pod with your friends north of the border to get them PUMPED for the match at BMO Field.
