It’s here, it’s finally here! The 2017 MLS season is upon us fam! Matt Pollard, Joe Hojnacki, and John Bava are here to break it all down this week on Last Word SC Radio!

Last Word SC Radio: Full MLS 2017 Season Preview With Ridiculous Hot Takes

In the first segment, the guys do a full playoff prediction. We pick who we think is going to make the playoffs and who won’t. We talk about why our non-playoff teams will miss out. The guys also give their playoff seeding predictions. Spoiler alert, FC Dallas and Toronto FC might roll.

In the second segment, the guys talk trophies and individual awards. We talk about the current CONCACAF Champions League taking place. We then pick our Supporter’s Shield, U.S. Open Cup, and MLS Cup champions. Then the guys roll through individual awards.

In the Round Table, we make absolute fools of ourselves. We pick serious upsets for the U.S. Open Cup. Matt has Cozmo driving a taco truck around the StubHub Center. Joe has Wayne Rooney coming to MLS in the summer and killing it. And John’s got a bold personnel prediction.

Share this pod with your office friends to get them excited for the first Super Soccer Sunday of the MLS season!
