That's So MLS is the Major League Soccer podcast for the long-suffering fan. Hosted by journalist Andrew Bates and defender Nick Thornton, TSMLS looks at club soccer from a Canadian perspective, with coverage of games and news from around North America.
Playoff Preview and Predictions
As North America spirals into Covid chaos, we pick the teams we think will make it through, if anyone makes it through. Only 20% a bummer. Stay safe
Decision Day AKA The Snows of Hurtado island
As the playoffs loom, we go over all the Decision Day results and talk about who is in and who is out and why. We offer some helpful advice to the teams that didn't quite make it and dissect the season's first snow game.
I Got Them PPG Blues
This week we look at the important races to playoff spots ahead of Decision Day, with some in depth looks at the dark horse teams, as well some teams we're still quite surprised by, and of course, whether or not the MLS Playoffs will even happen amidst soaring Covid 19 numbers. We also turn some attention to the Colorado Rapids who have quietly emerged as a force to be reckoned with.
To Shield or Not to Shield
This week we dive into the debacle of whether the 2020 Supporter's Shield will be awarded, look at how the playoffs are shaping up, and look at a few familiar names getting on the scoresheet.
Speaking of Things That Are Weird and Bad
This week we look at the two dominant teams emerging in MLS (bet you can't guess who), talk about the sea change at DC, and a really unfortunate incident in USL involving San Diego Loyal and Phoenix Rising.
Rudy CAN Fail
In another busy stretch of games we take a closer look at Montreal's discipline issues, some wild Whitecaps results, the struggles of LAFC, and Seattle's annoyingly good form.
