  • Big win last night to secure their ninth straight playoff appearance. A win next Sunday and they lock up the #2 seed in the West.

  • Seattle beats Colorado to get the #2 seed and avoid the knockout round of the playoffs. Of course, the win came with Dempsey earning a stupid red card for throwing an elbow so he'll miss at least the first playoff game and maybe more if he gets a multi-match suspension after running his mouth at the ref afterward.

  • Nice win to end the regular season for the Sounders. Now they get a bit of break and watch the knockout rounds. Unfortunately they lost Dempsey for their first playoff match.

    Some of our best matches have been without Dempsey. It gives Lodeiro the freedom to do what he does best, move all over the place, help maintain possession, make runs and distribute. Much harder for him to do when Dempsey's also in the middle needing his touches.

    You mean western conference regular season champions? The winner of the play off semi final is technically the western conference champion.

    Not too bummed about Dempsey getting hurt, I expect Lodeiro to ball. He looks really good the last game.

  • I think Seattle's going to go with a defensive line-up to counter Vancouver's strength, which is the counterattack, and look for a draw.

    Nice call.

    But that was a terribly played match, and not what the MLS is looking for in a playoff format. Maybe some critics are right, EVERY playoff match should be a one game knockout match, and not home and away where both teams play scared for 90 minutes. Cause that's what I saw last night.

  • I saw a stat in yesterday's game that there was one shot on goal total the entire game between the two teams. Sgt was right when he predicted the Sounders would be playing for a draw. This is why hate the playoff format for soccer. It encourages teams to play safe. Knockout round throughout the playoffs would be a good direction to go for solving this.

  • Half of the Timbers roster has gotten hurt either tonight, or in between the last game and this one. Nagbe, Guzman, Chara, Blanco and Mabiala all down.

    Incredibly boring game. Teams dont even appear to be trying to score.

    idk, Morris sounded pretty dejected before the match, like he wasn't even close.

    Ozzie had a setback, but sounds like it's something that might be better by next week, or the 2nd match of the Conference Finals.

    As far as the match goes, I'd be pissed if I was a Whitecaps fan. Carl Robinson's gameplan for the entire series was defensive, defeatist and passive. They didn't even try and push the match until Dempsey scored his first goal.

  • Sucks about Morris, he's been out a while as well.

    I feel like under Schmetzer we seem more built for the play offs over 2 leg games. In the regular season we got quite a lot of draws that work well over 2 legs. Bunker down away from home and try nick an away goal then use home field advantage to see it through.

    If and it's a big if we get through the next round I can see it being Toronto we play again, a Toronto team who are going to want revenge and throw the kitchen sink at us. Would be hilarious if we beat them again, given how dominant they've been in the regular season and how whiny their fans were after the final last year.

    I think the way we play without Morris is also conducive to this strategy. We play far more narrow and clogged without Morris on the right to get some width on the other side from Jones, makes it much harder for clubs to break us down through the middle.

    Literally the only offense Vancouver had last night was low percentage long balls and Montero diving for possible penalty set pieces. I don't remember him being such a flopper.

  • I do, I also remember Montero disappearing in the play offs as well and extremely streaky. I didn't realize he was only on loan at Vancouver.

    We are going to miss Jones when he leaves. Hope someone as fast can replace him. I imagine Evans is probably gone too, think he needs a change of scene and will sync up with Sigi again in LA.

    I liked Lodeiro being further forward last night, played some really great balls and created a lot. Hope that continues.

    Lodeiro had a great match, but I was irritated with how many easy giveaways he had...........a more dangerous club would have made us pay. He's gotta be more careful with the ball, especially on our half of the pitch.

    Also agree on Jones, I wish we could figure out a way to pay him to stay. But he's already said he's done here. He's so damn dangerous on the ball, it's fun to watch.

    Kinda hard to be Western Conference Champions when you don't even make it to the Western Conference Finals.

    Gratz on finishing the regular season in 1st place though. I'm sure that'll be some sort of consolation to the Timbers as they watch the rest of the playoffs from their couches. :P

  • Joevin Jones has his moments but is still a terrible defender. I think the Sounders can easily replace him with Victor Rodriguez, maybe even Nouhou (definitely has the pace), etc. Jones clearly doesn't want to play in Seattle. Don't need a player with an attitude like that no matter how talented he may be.

    It's a moot point. Jones is going to Germany after this season anyway.

    I like what I've seen from Nouhou and I think he'll be a fine replacement for Jones.

    International break? Guessing they assumed the US would have a world cup play off qualifier game. Svensson played for Sweden today against Italy and Torres may have played a friendly.

    It'll be interesting to see how Schmetzer uses Dempsey going forward.

    My hope is Dempsey's a 75 minute then sub him out type of player. If we do that, he could last another 2-3 years. But if Dempsey is adamant that he's still a 90 minute player and Schmetzer allows him to dictate his playing time, then we could have some serious issues.

  • Great win and play by the Sounders. They almost had 3 goals a few times. Depth of the Sounders is unreal. Unfortunately, they lost Torres for the next game due to YC accumulation. In my opinion, a stupid rule to have in the playoffs. But it is what it is.

    I know it hurt us, but as we saw last night playoff soccer is already chippy enough. So I'm fine with the YC accumulation carry over, it has to help minimize matches getting out of control and even worse with the nonsense.

    Lodeiro and Jones were absolute studs last night. Our experience and depth really showed. I'm sure Schmetzer will make sure there's no letdown at home.

  • Man, the Sounders are just built for the play offs. The format really helps this current team.

    A bit bummed we didn't get 3 or 4, we really should have. Would have helped me relax a bit but we got 2 away goals.

    Houston have to go all out attack next week, bunker down and try snatch an early goal.

    Really hope Columbus win next week, would make for a nice story.

  • Do yellow card accumulations count for the final as well or does it get cleared? Pretty sure we have Lodeiro and a few others walking that tight rope. If so, maybe limit their minutes next week.

    Gotta make it to the finals, then we're good. So yeah guys that are on the edge need to be extra careful on the 2nd leg match.

  • That yellow on Torres was ridiculous. He didn't even touch the guy. Hopefully it gets looked at.

    Not a soccer fan, but always a Seattle/Washington fan. So I have to do it:

  • Western Conference Champions :mrgreen:

    Gonna be tough next week but proud of the team no matter what. I said at the start of the season we just seem built for the play offs, just had to get there first. Really like this teams depth this year. Svensson, Bruin, Leerdham and Rodriguez have been excellent additions to the squad. Shipp has been okay. Credit to Lagerway who was getting it tight off of fans last season.

    You look at our options on the bench- Alonso, Morris etc as well and it's much better than last years options.

    I'd keep mostly the same lineup as tonight for the final. Bring on Morris later in the game. Only decision is who partners Roldan- Ozzy, Svensson or Rodriguez. I'd play Svensson so as not to disrupt the chemistry built.

    Toronto will be all guns blazing next week, determined on revenge. I'd say we are the hotter team but they have some great quality up front.

    I doubt we park the bus this time with Dempsey and Bruin there.

    Maybe we can use this to our advantage, TFC's the one with all the pressure on them to rectify last year's Cup loss and finish off this record setting season.

    I LOVE where we're at, and I LOVE the mental toughness and workmanlike mindset that Schmetzer's ingrained into this club. Last night was a perfect example, a Sigi club would have let up and allowed a wounded Houston club to get back into it and maybe even choked away the two goal advantage.

    Not Schmetzer, that match was never in doubt. That's what great clubs do, so I'm very optimistic about our chances in Toronto next weekend. We've got the grit, experience, form and depth to finish this thing off.

    I think she was just clarifying the difference between the two, since a red applies directly to the player's next game. Even though Houston's season is done, Martinez will still have to sit out the first game of the 2018 season whereas we won't have to worry about Nouhou's or Jones' yellows from last night carrying into the final.
