Who makes the playoffs? The top 8 teams, out of 15. (Next year team #16 Philly joins, and in 2011, teams #17 Portland, and #18 Vancouver will join the League).
The format? 1st round, home and away series. Away goals don't count for more, just final aggregate score.
So, who is your pick?
RSL vs Columbus
New England vs Chicago
Seattle vs Houston
Chivas vs LA
Last night we watched RSL upset #1 ranked Columbus 3-2. After having beaten the Crew at home 1-0, RSL showed that they are more than just an eigth place team, stomping the Supporter Shield (the team that finishes on top of the table) Champion 4-2 Aggregate.
By Sunday, we'll know who'll join RSL in advancing to the Semi's.
Those of you "Eurosnob" Americans that don't know, don't care, or don't want to let "unpure" soccer into your lives....this thing isn't going away, and eventually, you'll have to accept it. Or will you fight it forever?
