It rotates amongst EPL, La Liga, Bundesliga, and Serie A. Right now, EPL has so much money that top to bottom, they are able to build solid squads.

5 years ago it was La Liga. It's swinging to EPL now.

The EPL has been widely regarded as the best league from top to bottom for quite a while now.

It really depends on how you define "best". Does best mean the league with the very best teams at the top? Because just a few years ago the answer is probably La Liga, if you're using that definition.

But if you're talking about the best league top to bottom, taking the mid and lower tier teams into account, I think most people would agree that it's the EPL.

Spain and Italy both have more finalists and winners in the Europa which extends past the Top 4 within each league, and EPL teams are notoriously bad when they play abroad. La Liga has been DOMINANT in European tournaments with something like 20 titles to 8 since 2000. However I agree with gg13 that the EPL is more competitive top to bottom.

Liverpool up 1-0 while Man City is knotted at zeroes in the 20th minute. If Man City is going to score, which it feels like they will, I hope they wait as long as possible for drama purposes.

2-0-3 (yes we can use hockey style records on here) ain't bad in the first five at the new stadium.

Same number of points as 3-2-0 but unbeaten is much more interesting.

Spurs certainly had their chances near the box, but their final touches weren't as strong and Liverpool had the better keeper for this match.

That pass was ridiculous from Opara and that finish isn't nearly as easy as the announcer implied either.

I don't know, I don't think I mind how Gasper played it.

He brought it down pretty well, it just fell kindly to the attacker. In his position, I think that was the better play than just letting it go.

Looks like he was gracious enough to take a picture or two with him, which must have been awesome for the kid

Do I have this right? Is MN United 11-1-5 at Allianz with a +23 GD?
Yeah, only 1 home loss. It's a fortress! Basically a must win tomorrow.

Good that my one game this year looks like a big one.

Looks like it. Checking off Allianz and US Bank before this year is over (vs. Packers). Hoping to get to my annual average of one Twins game some time next week.

Shuttle is free I guess.

If I want to get to the stadium at 4:00, when should I be at the Como lot?

I believe it's $15 to park. Im not sure about cash and/or card. Ive prepaid for the season. Shuttle is free though. If you're there by 3:30, you will make it to the stadium by 4.

Big, big 3 points last night to put us 5 points ahead of the playoff line with 3 to play.

If we can go get a point in Portland next week I'll be thrilled. A point there, and a win against SKC at home would likely be enough, where we don't have to be in a must win on Decision Day. It would be nice if that final game is only for seeding. Even if LAFC will likely be resting their big guys.

First game was a good experience. Weather was perfect. Concourses were impossible to move almost for a big chunk of halftime. Lots of beer options is always a plus.

Obviously the level of play in MLS leaves a lot to be desired, but 3-1 was a justified result.

Another team in town clinched a playoff spot Wednesday.

A 90th minute winner at home to clinch. 13-1-5 at Allianz my lord. Two points or any dropped point from RSL clinches home field for the first round of playoffs from what I can tell.

It was LOUD in there when Dotson scored. Right on par with the roar for the first goal in the stadium.

They showed a lot of grit coming back to win that game, gotta know how to win ugly. Adrian said it better than I could:



Now go out and secure a home playoff game!

The last game of the season is at Seattle. A win or a draw will (99.9%, Zlatan could score ten goals) clinch second in the conference, with big home field advantage implications.

Also of note, MN is the only team to win at the number one seed, LAFC, this season.

A draw would leave us in 3rd if LA Galaxy win. LA has more wins.

The more I look at it the last game is absolutely massive and certainly the biggest in franchise history.

They could slide from second to out of home field extremely easily.
-Zlatan is Zlatan and they will win, move to second
-RSL plays a horrible team, moving to third with a win
-That means MN needs a draw at Seattle to hang on to that last home field spot.

A draw will leave us no worse than third, depending on what LA does. If they win, we would drop to third. Any other result from them and we finish second.
