That feeling when you realize a season of anything is almost over... Sounders FC welcome New York Red Bulls Sunday afternoon at 3pm. 

Seattle currently sits in third place in the west going into the weekend but there's almost zero wiggle room for the race to the finish line/playoffs.

  • 4 points separate 2-8th.
  • Only the top 7 advance to the playoffs
  • Sounders FC have never missed the playoffs
  • Highest Seattle can finish is 2nd
  • LAFC clinched the top spot and could have best season in MLS history

Listen to the latest episode of 'Full 90 - Extra Time' to prep for Sunday!

Any western conference playoff contender losing would be great this weekend, but Minnesota hosting Real Salt Lake to a draw helps Seattle out tremendously.

Seattle's recent performances suggest there are goals to be had, but worryingly the defense is handing em out at home like Ichiro bobbleheads to Mariners fans: show up early and score.

Thanks a ton for listening to the podcast and even though we tease, we love the comments and reviews. If you're at the match on Sunday, I'm section 120!
