Last Word SC Radio: MLS Cup Conference Finals Leg One Recaps And Leg Two Previews

The Matt’s, Dan, and Robert are back! In segment one, we talk about the Eastern Conference Final. We discuss how Columbus Crew SC didn’t take advantage of their chances. The guys go back and forth on Michael Bradley becoming a villain and Toronto FC being set up to win at home next week. We also talk about how the match helped the momentum of the #SaveTheCrew movement.

In segment two, Dan, Robert, and McCarthy take on breaking down the Western Conference Final. The guys talk about how underwhelming the match was and how Seattle Sounders FC are rounding into form just in time for MLS Cup. We talk about Houston Dynamo’s chances to make a comeback and how it has to happen.

In the Round Table, we’ve got a bunch of rapid fire topics. We finish off by replacing our “Last Word” segment with talking about what we are thankful for.
