    Mourinho was sacked. Manchester United will hire Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if Molde lets him go. http://www.espn.com/soccer/mancheste...-sack-mourinho says next season they want Mauricio Pochettino to come from Tottenham.

    No more two-legged aggregates!

    What's your take on this EvanJ aka NYYFans' association football/soccer pundit and New York Red Bulls fan?
    I don't know of another soccer league with as many playoff clubs as MLS. I understand people not liking how long the playoffs take, and some people on BigSoccer complained the the better seed should get a bigger advantage than hosting the second leg. A fan said the actual attendance in the Red Bulls' second leg hosting Atlanta was much smaller than what was announced. If it was one game, the Red Bulls wouldn't have had fans stay away after losing the first leg 3-0. A fan complained that the 4 vs. 5 winner will play at the 1 seed in the Conference Semifinals, but the 6 or 7 seed could host that round. The playoffs won't be reseeded, but it's not clear from the bracket whether the game would be hosted by the better seed or who the better seed could have been. The 7 seed can host the 6 only if the 2 vs. 7 winner gets home field over the 3 vs. 6 winner.

    Re: Soccer Clubs Thread

    You don't see this often in UEFA Competitions.

    Both the UEFA Champions League and Europa Leagues will have four clubs from one country in both Finals for the first time and it's all-England.

    In the 2019 UEFA Europa League Final on May 29 in Baku Azerbaijan's Olympic Stadium, Chelsea will take on Arsenal.

    And in the 2019 UEFA Champions League Final in Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano, both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur will face off after two dramatic aggregate comebacks against Barcelona and Ajax Amsterdam in the semifinals.
