Started last night with a very physical game in New England that ended 0-0

For those that don't know, the first round is a home and away series, the second game is for the Conference Championship (a one off game), and then the finals that are being played in LA.

Houston Dynamo - New York
Chivas - RSL

Chicago - New England
Columbus - KC

last night's game was all you could hope for if you're a KC or Columbus fan. The game was very rough and obviously taxing on the players. You can bet the second leg will be more of the same, so either team that makes it will probably have their share of knocks going into the ECS game. Ended 0-0 snoozer because there was no established rhythm.

Yea, that's a real shame

Columbus won the Supporter's Shield this year (most points in the regular season), so you've always got that!

Man, the second legs are going to be intense - only 1 team pulled off a win, and that was by 1 goal.

Congrats to the Crew.

Blanco's movement fascinates me...all hunched over and stalking like a murderer out of an old silent film.

How RSL did not score I'll never know.

Got my tickets sorted out. I'm flying out Saturday morning. Never been to the HDC before; I'm looking forward to it

Congrats invalid, you guys totally deserved it.

I've got to say the tv coverage was abysmal. Those announcers should be shot they were so bad.

They did show plenty of shots of the nordecke crew though, and plenty of shots of an excited Sigi with his signature scarf. Hard not to like that guy.

Thanks man. I just got back in really early this morning. I'll write a little more about the shenanigans that went on in LA when I'm a bit less hungover ;)

I think Sigi is as good as gone, which we all pretty much expected. He was brought in as a rebuilding coach and made no bones about it. I can live with that. It sucks, but I understand him wanting to move on and go close to home in this case.

GBS is much more likely to be around for one more year.Sucks having this conversation 3 days after winning our first MLS Cup though :(


Edit - GBS is staying in Columbus
