The chase for the Shield
October 23, 2018

Oh, Toronto, Toronto, Toronto! For so long the clown franchise of MLS, turned around by two ex-Metros, only to fall flat on its face. We had a run in the Champions League, Toronto, and we just followed that with one of the best regular seasons in MLS history. Some excuse you've got!

Alas, Atlanta's regular season has been one point better (so far), despite Metro's two convincing wins over the United. (Who exactly "united" to make that club? Wasn't the Scum "united" enough? This means that for Metro to win the Shield, they need either:

  • A win AND a Atlanta loss or tie
  • A tie AND an Atlanta loss by more than two goals

    The two goal margin is necessary so that Metro goes ahead on the goal difference tiebraker. Yeah, we don't see that case happening. Still... come on Toronto!

    And, oh, yeah, let's take care of this on our end.
