Welcome back, soccer fans, to the Sons of a Pitch: An American Soccer Podcast. The MLS has its newest champion in the Seattle Sounders, after their 3-1 victory over Toronto FC. While TFC may have looked the better side, Seattle got the better of the goal-scoring opportunities to earn their second MLS Cup in team history. Our condolences to our host Mike, a Toronto superfan, but at least he got his pick right.
In the second half of the show, our hosts review the latest headlines from around Major League Soccer, including:
- Chicago Fire clean house – head coach Paunovic and entire staff let go. Is GM Rodriguez next?
- Nagbe returns to Columbus for a hefty sum – Did the Crew overpay?
- Inter Miami acquire TFC midfielder Jay Chapman – experience key for the expansion squad
- Houston increase its attacking potential by trading for Darwin Quintero – doubtful that Adrian Heath is upset
