MLS: Portland Timbers at Sporting Kansas City Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

On this week’s show, Jamie, of the Goldberg variety, and Richard, of the Farley vintage, discuss the Portland Timbers’ comeback victory over Sporting Kansas City in the Western Conference Championship series, look ahead to the 2018 MLS Cup, talk about what has made Atlanta United FC so good this season and evaluate whether it’s fair to call the Timbers underdogs heading into the 2018 MLS Cup.

Jamie and Richard also talk to former Timber and current broadcaster Nat Borchers about the club’s playoff run and the similarities between this year and 2015.

And, for those starved for Thorns talk, Jamie and Richard talk the 2018 NWSL format, U.S. Soccer’s Player of the Year nominees, and walk through how Portland’s players are doing in the W-League.
