How to Sounders Good

by Gregr

It's pretty stupidly simple: if the Sounders FC win tomorrow at home, they're in the playoffs. If they win tomorrow, they'll take the pitch for a knockout playoff match in Seattle. Just win, gentlemen.

Listen to the Full 90 Extra Time podcast with Ross Fletcher and Gregr.

Four teams have a shot at making the final 3 slots of the western conference playoffs, and two of them square off at CenturyLink Field. Seattle hosts Real Salt Lake, a team most easily recognized by the head tentacles of Kyle Beckerman's squid-like dreadlocks. I hear if he scores a goal, he inks everyone around him...

Both Portland Timbers and Sporking Kansas City (Wizards) also have matches on this nutty final day of the regular season (everyone does). It's #decisionday around the MLS, and both teams need wins to even have a shot to move in the post-season h]\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ <- peanut my cat just wrote that.

Sounders win = 4th cede
Sounders draw + Timbers and Sporking win = no playoffs
Sounders draw + either other team loses or draws = Sounders 5th or 6th cede
Sounders lose = either Timbers or Sporking must lose (there a million nuances to this scenario)

HOW DRAMATIC.

Listen to the match tomorrow on 1077 The End! The pregame show kicks off at 12:45p and that first sweet whistle blows at 1:20p.

Now, enjoy the sweet sounds of one idiot talking a million miles per hour about Japan and then pretending it's a podcast about soccer!
