I'm not sure I'll even be able to figure it all out next Monday, let alone today.

Disregarding the convoluted tie-breaker scenario, my gut is telling me Chicago, Dallas and TFC.

Sorry, I can't vote since I can't see the poll! Does anyone else have problems even viewing any of the polls done through twiigs.com?

Of course, I can guess at the options pretty easily, but I have no clue what to think about who is going to win. In MLS, on any given day, the outcome often appears close to random. While I hope United makes it, I wish I was more confident. This team continues to be one in which hopes for the future hinge on USL-1 players.

TFC, Chicago, and DC just make the most fiscal/entertainment/sports/MLS-culture sense.


its still gonna be Houston-Columbus in the final. as it should have been last year :D

if DC United makes the playoff(really really hope they do) It gonna be DC vs LA final!

IMO-The most likely scenario is Chicago, Toronto, and United. I don't see Colorado winning at Rio Tinto, New England winning at Columbus or FC Dallas winning at Seattle.

so correct me if im wrong, if DC Toronto And Colorado win does that mean tha chicago is out? and we have to match up against toronto???

I voted, but have no idea if the teams I selected even all can get in depending on tiebreakers and stuff.

Fulham-Hull, shocking to nobody, has been a fairly boring game. Fulham now up 2-0 in the 64th.

Don't forget to set your Argy Bargy fantasy lineups, for those doing the CL fantasy.

Jozy on.

Let's see if Jozy's introduction adds any forward movement and excitement to the game.

RSL FTW!

This game has been sooo boring.
What channels are DCU's match on tomorrow night?

Posted by: DadRyan | October 19, 2009 4:51 PM | Report abuse

RK beat me to it.

I hate to admit it, but I almost hope DC doesn't make it so the management gets shaken up. DC should have qualified weeks ago.

Anyway, Chicago and Toronto are almost guarenteed to make it. The last slot is up for grabs, but I doubt DC will be up for it. They seem to do just enough to not achieve anything this year.

Chicago only needs 1 point to advance, so it makes sense that they're leading the pack. Although even a tie against Chivas will not be easy.

After the Fire though, I think Colorado has the best chance of winning. They're playing really well right now, and RSL has been overachieving all year.

As for the last playoff spot, it's pretty much a toss up between DC, Toronto, and NE. The Red Bulls have been playing better lately, so hopefully they'll put up a fight against TFC. But United really SHOULD win on Saturday. The Wizards defense looked awful last week against Seattle. Hopefully they'll give us the same level as effort as they gave against the Sounders.
