The table is set for a rematch between last year’s MLS Cup Finalists, Toronto and Seattle, but these are very different teams from last year. Clint Dempsey while not at full strength is very active in the Sounder’s attack and TFC added depth and creativity, most notably in the addition of Victor Vazquez to the already potent offense.
Mike and Jon take their usual places behind the mic for this episode and Nick Chavez joins the guys for a preview of the MLS Cup Final. The guys also tackle the breaking news about Sunil Gulati and his announcement that he will not seek re-election for US Soccer President in February.
Lastly, the guys tackle the NYCFC news on player options as the club releases some key players from the 2017 campaign.
