  • The Seattle Sounders advanced to MLS Cup and Jordan Morris was the hero: "But ultimately there was no denying Morris. A loose header 11 minutes into the second period from Jared Watts was pounced on by Nelson Valdez, who quickly played a pass from which Morris' deft finish over Zac MacMath found the back of the net. Seattle was now firmly in control, even though its scorer was on the ground for a long time after colliding with the Colorado goalkeeper. The goal is the latest sign of Morris' maturation process. The Sounders indicated that the rookie was suffering from a virus in the lead-up to the match and he certainly looked off his game in terms of touch and passing early on. Earlier this season, Morris tended to drift out of games when things weren't going his way, but, on this occasion, he stuck to his task and bagged the one clear opportunity that came his way. There's no denying the growth in his game this season."

  • The Sounders will play the winner of the Toronto FC-Montreal Impact series, which concludes on Wednesday for some reason. 

  • Jermaine Jones, who doesn't really seem to understand MLS free agency, is a free agent

  • Who would you take to the World Cup in 2018?
