D.C. United clinches spot in MLS playoffs, Messi gets hurt & more: Freedom Kicks for 10/22/18

A lot of good is in these here links.

Well that was fun, albeit a bit breezy.

Recaps of D.C. United’s playoff-clinching win over New York City FC by us (with more from us here), WaPo and MLS. Hudson River Blue has the Pigeons’ side of things.

Ranking the top 10 personnel moves of the 2018 MLS season (MLS): See how high Joseph Mora’s acquisition ran-hahahahaha it’s totally Wayne Rooney.

Arriola returns to D.C. United grieving his father (WaPo): Paul Arriola (and Ulises Segura) ran their guts out yesterday and the former had a heavy heart.

Rooney talks to Men in Blazers about DC heat, adjusting to life in MLS (MLS): Wazza continues talking to U.S. press just as one of the Blazermen shares his narrative take on this rebirth, just as former England boss Roy Hodgson says Rooney would be welcome to return to the Premier League (under his charge of course) at Crystal Palace.

Hey, here’s a profile on Ben Olsen from his hometown news station:

Dembélé Disappoints as Messi is Injured (Barca Blaugranes): Sevilla broke Lionel Messi’s arm, the monsters! I mean not literally, but still, he’ll miss his first Clasico (for Barcelona against Real Madrid) in more than a decade next week, being out for 3 weeks.

Lawsuit claims Dynamo’s Quioto shared revenge porn (Houston Chronicle): I don’t know what’s going on with the Houston Dynamo between Tyler Deric and Romell Quioto, but this is concerning.

Anyway, have fun today, start looking at playoff ramifications and kill your work week in earnest.
