There was a wild night of playoff soccer last night, there is more playoff soccer tonight, and then we go into a weekend full of, you guessed it, more playoff soccer! It still stings that D.C.

Sounders vs. Real Salt Lake, recap: Back to the Western Conference championship - Sounder At Heart: The Sounders get a solid win over RSL, and have won 11 straight home playoff games. That leaves them one behind the all-time home playoff win record, held by the 1996-1999 D.C. United teams.

Last night was also the last game for Nick Rimando, who I wish a great retirement after a great career!

Bob Bradley wins 2019 Sigi Schmid Coach of the Year after LAFC’s dominant season | MLSsoccer.com: I mean, obviously. Bradley is one of the US’s great coaching success and the team he has put together is probably going to win MLS Cup.

Las Vegas seeks 30th MLS franchise, but key questions remain | Las Vegas Review-Journal: Las Vegas, in August? No thanks.

That’s all I have, what’s up?
