Looks like the Chicago Fire are about to sign a deal to get out of their stadium lease in Bridgeview. Reportedly going to be paying the Village $65M, and Soldier Field seems to be the most likely landing spot for the team in 2020.
Colorado's next two games are against the Galaxy and the Crew, both are in a slump. Hopefully bith can get a win against the Rapids since they only have 2 pts on the year.
It's quite possible that next Sundays Galaxy-Colorado match will be without Zlatan. I would not be surprised if he is fined, or suspended, or both, after his actions in the NYCFC goal in the 86th minute of yesterdays match.
Montreal 0, New England 0 Real Salt Lake 3, Toronto 0 San Jose 4, Chicago 1 Philadelphia 0, Seattle 0 Minnesota 1, Columbus 0 Sporting KC 1, Vancouver 1 Houston 2, DC United 1 Orlando 5, FC Cincinnati 1 NY Red Bulls 1, Atlanta United 0 FC Dallas 1, LAFC 1
And playing without Zlatan who is suspended for two games, the LA Galaxy slump to our fourth straight loss, 1-0 to last place Colorado.

2019 Supporters Shield winners: LAFC - their first major trophy, in only their 2nd season 2019 US Open Cup winners: Atlanta United - their 2nd major trophy, in only their 2rd season
Here is the bracket for the 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs. This is the first year of the new 14 team setup, which is a single elimination bracket with byes to the 1 seeds. Minnesota United is making their first playoff appearance (in their 3rd season) and get to host Kieth's Galaxy in St. Paul.
I don’t understand why they want so many clubs. 20 should of been the max. Unless they decide to use promotion-relegation route with the USL, which I doubt they do.
The current TV deals run through the 2022 season, and it looks like they want to have 30 teams in place when they begin negotiations for the new contracts.
Charlotte is expected to be announced as the 30th franchise tomorrow, and it's possible they will come in with Austin in 2021 and actually be the 28th team to start play. That would make the most sense as far as keeping the expansion entries at an even number per year.
Also, it has been announced that Nashville will start in the Western Conference, as opposed to moving Chicago to the West. Though that'll most likely only be a temporary thing, with Nashville going to the East once Sacramento and St. Louis begin play in 2022. Next year will also be the first time in MLS history without having all the teams playing each other, as the 34 game schedule will consist of 24 games against your conference (double round robin) and then playing 10 of the 13 in the other conference.
