    Finished the season #1 in the west, and will play the winner of rapids/sounders. First leg will be away. Rapids aren't as dangerous as Seattle, but they are playing better going into the playoffs(seattle is in a shit storm). Who would you guys rather play?

    I think the Sounders will beat Colorado. I would rather play the Rapids as I think it would be an easier matchup. You never know what will happen in a Cascadia rivalry game. It should be exciting though!

    gotta agree on Colorado I think, Eddie Johnson is back for the Timbers and he just torches us. But to get to the top you are going to have to go through some tough matchups.

    I wish Gspurning wouldn't have got the red. He looked horrible!

    2-1 FT. Both goals (Johnson and Nagbe) were fantastic finishes..Can't believe they gave up a goal in the 90th min. I mean Seattle had so many chances all game, but to finally crack with 4 min to go hurt. But have the 2-1 goal advantage going into Thursday.

    Thought Rodney Wallace really put in some effort tonight. Wasn't the best but really left it all on the field.

    How does the MLS not have the away goal rule?!!?!
