    At least I can look forward to another MLS IF. I would assume Morris is a lock. I bet they put him as a LW, altho a central card would suit me better

    It will be a winger... unfortunate, but at least he'll be fast. 2* weak foot is the real shame - scores so many left footer irl but ea don't actually watch football lol.

    He's more of a right cam/2nd striker that cuts in. Right forward? Who knows, most Seattle forwards free roam anyways.

    Morris has never had a good weak foot and that was only his second this season scored with his left foot

    You sure about that? I know his weak foot can be a disadvantage, but I'm sure he's scored more than the two in this last game.

    To be fair, Morris has never been clinical. He's as scrappy as they come. His strength and pace are certainly his best features - although, his crossing game has really improved. As far as dribbling? Not good lol.

    Morris needs to watch more tape of vardy - I think they could be similar types of players.

    It may have been two of his goals today were with his left, but Taylor Twellman said after his first left foot goal that it was is second with his left this season.

    Agreed. No park the bus, just full out attack. Wish every game in the season had the intensity of these playoff games.

    Read my mind haha. But seriously, the games are so much better overall this year. Much more attacking end to end soccer. And it makes the regular season more important, which was a criticism of the old format. This is what the fans want to see.

    Some real monster performances in every game these playoffs.

    Hold onto your hats! Extra time in almost every game with only 4 days between.

    Safe to say the new playoff format is doing what it was intended. Fun games. No one parking it away from home.

    Minnesota can't finish their chances and LA steal it late. El Traffico on Thursday

    Only one for me was portland... was savoring a por vs sea game. La vs la never dissapoints though. Zlatan was hardly in this game, I'm sure he'll show up vs lafc!

    Sea vs rsl looks good on paper.... they beat us good earlier though 😓

    Don't think Giancarlo Gonzalez or Polenta have ever played outside back before and of the two of them, only Gonzalez had the passing ability to do much of anything besides defend

    Polenta at least attempts to get forward, Gonzalez looked very uncomfortable.

    This la Galaxy looks exactly like a Houston team from 2014 - make up for skill by being physical and hacking down dribbles....

    Albeit, zlatan, pavon, and dos Santos are very good players. The rest of the team is ****.

    Jonathan does Santos would be a perfect choice for a league ABC if we still had them. Easily link zlatan and Vela in any mls squad or hybrid... sadly... he is the one player I hope turns up the most for el traffico...

    Romney played LB and Polenta (who has played LB before and has the best ball skills and passing of any of our defenders) played LCB. But yeah, our fullbacks suck :/.

    A few weeks ago I felt we wouldn’t make it far. But Drini looked good yesterday so now I believe we’re capable of winning it all by barely scoring more than we concede :D.

    Romain did look good. If he starts, garaunteed ibra scores twice. In thinking he subs at 60 again though. As a seattle fan, I'm nore inclined to favor a galaxy match up over lafc... Although, in years past, galaxy have sent us home.... But those were the Robbie kean days.

    I hated him and not even trying to be a downer. Loved his flashback last year but absolutely hated him for the 10 games I had him this year.

    I'm sitting on 650k... coins are so hard to come by this year that I really don't wanna lose too much on ibra - he will be in my team till his EOAE comes out (scream will tank). Assuming he retires... I think he will after the playoffs. I'll be keeping a close eye on mlssoccer.com after galaxy are sent home (can't see them winning the cup).

    An EOAE card will be my wet dream.

    No, resale in the second bowl was only 55$ plus ticketmaster fees. Ticketmaster is a scam and really wish MLS would end their partnership. Prefer second bowl at MBS anyway too, better lines of sight for soccer games.
