MLS Week 16 is in the books, and we recap all the action right here!
What a weekend for Eastern Conference! Contenders Atlanta visit NYCFC and Columbus hosts NYRB. Both games are potential conference finals match-ups, but we hope to see more goals the next time we see them play. Selfishly, Nick hopes Columbus makes a great playoff fun just to see more soccer in the original MLS team’s home city. The hosts have given up the #SavetheCrew movement and are waiting for the Crew to make their move to Austin. Meanwhile, the middle of the conference keeps getting tighter with a TFC win and Fire/Revs draw.
Dallas jumps ahead in the Western Conference as SKC only takes a point against Portland. Nick gives a complete breakdown of his game of the week: RSL vs. LA Galaxy. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a game to remember both for his scoring and his personality, and Michael Ciani puts Bofo Saucedo in his place. Also, the hosts question whether Montreal need to start shopping Piatti.
Also, Wondo Watch continues, and all-time foul leader Diego Chara gets a mention.
