EoS Staff Predictions: MLS Knockout Round (and MLS Cup winners!)

MLS Logo

The Major League Soccer postseason is upon us and it is anyone’s guess who will take the Cup this season.

Will it be the New York Red Bulls and their high press attack? Maybe the LA Galaxy and their universe of stars? Perhaps the upstart FC Dallas under the guidance of Oscar Pareja? Or can one of the Pacific Northwest clubs take home the big prize?

Before any of those answers can be resolved, we have to get through the knockout rounds. We asked our staff who they see winning the wildcard segment of the postseason — and their predictions for MLS Cup.

Here is what we see happening …

    Say it ain’t so Dave. Man I love you but c’mon….have some faith. Don’t be afraid to believe! THIS IS THE YEAR! BOOK IT!

    • Ha … So one of my main misgivings was the Revolution beating DC. I think NE plays well vs. RBNY. Now … different story. Then again … my picks are in! Just being honest. RB still have the most fun team and system to watch in MLS. Bar none.

    MLS has a serous problem with the season schedule if they don’t switch in 5 years or less to the August to May.
    Right now, everybody watches NCAA football from Thursday to Saturday and it’s all day Saturday.
    The NFL has Thursday and Sunday and the NBA has begun and is on mostly every night and MLB has their playoffs going on as well and espn or fox won’t give MLS prime time spots.
    Then if you add the NHL, it only gets worse for MLS
    MLS needs to do something fast and if MLS expands into warmer cities then it should help MLS change their season schedule sooner than later.
    Start in august, break from December and come back after the Super Bowl or during Super Bowl week with one game the Saturday before super Sunday.
    During the winter break, have a tournament in Hawaii and scrimmages versus ligaMX teams and NASL.
    I also read that NCAA plans to move march madness into April or May.
    Hopefully MLS expands into warmer markets after 24 like Sacramento, San Antonio, Charlotte, Vegas, besides st.louis and Indy.

      Sounds like you’ve never been to the northern part of the US in January/February. No one is going to games in that weather. Simply not feasible.

      Why doesn’t NASL move to Aug to May schedule then?
