Can they extend their season by finishing high up and playing those national finals like in the other sports? 

All those are Eastern teams?

Beginning in the 2019 season, the top seven teams in each conference will qualify for the playoffs, playing in separate brackets. The top seed in each conference is given a bye to the Conference Semifinals, while the remaining six teams compete in the first round of the playoffs. All rounds are single-match eliminations hosted by the higher seed and there is no re-seeding in subsequent rounds, with the winner of the 4th and 5th place match advancing to face the conference leader and the 2nd–7th and 3rd–6th winners in the other semifinal match. The winners of the conference semifinals advance to the conference finals.

Can't wait for the inevitable 90th minute double ACL injury in the Cincinnati game

I said to my missus that it's made for him to pick up a horrible injury. 

Watch it happen in a collision with Johnny Russell

If that's all the regular season remaining games then he won't be facing Johnny Russell again.

Sporting Kansas City have been gash this season. - way off the play offs

I watch the DC United highlights each week. There's often a weekly YouTube video posted of just Rooney highlights

Seems like large parts of USA don't play? 

I had it in my head that there's 3 conferences. I thought there'd be a central one. Tight league

Just looking at the Western Conference and seeing LA Galaxy aren't very good. Thought they were supposed to be really good. Looking at their players... they should be! 

I don't understand how some ordinary players shine and the world class talent doesn't so much. 

Carlos Vela statistically is better than Rooney. That just wouldn't happen if they shared an English league!

Carlos Vela is a better player than Rooney. Was probably the best player on the pitch for the Mexico/Germany match last World Cup and IMO the best player on the Mexico side the entire tournament, including the two Premier players in Chicharito (West Ham) and Jimenez (Wolverhampton).

I am very interested to see what Rooney has left in the tank, especially after playing a full MLS and then finishing off the Championship. I haven’t been overly impressed with him during his stint here in the States.

Here is the map. States like Idaho, Montana, North and South Dakota, Wyoming, and Nebraska do not have large cities and the population to support teams. Many other states have USL teams, the “equivalent” of Championship here in the States.

And I thought Plymouth and Carlisle had a trek on away days...

That's why they're split into conferences of East and West. Imagine Sky Sports would move New York v LA from a Saturday to a Tuesday night. 

Internal flights are cheap but what happens when you get rowdy lads on a plane trying to hang scarves out the windows

Are the airport bars open 24hrs in the US like they are in the UK? Could be messy?

I wish that was the case here. It was cheaper for me to fly to London, get a flat, and buy a Club Wembley ticket than it would have been for me to fly to Florida to watch the Rams train last month.

Do you remember dot to dot books?

Well if you draw a line from Washington to Portland and then to Salt Lake City and on to Colorado and Kansas City and then up to the Canadian border and back across to the West coast you will have ensnared the following.

9 people

3 dogs

A cat called Cyril

14,219 bankrupt farms that used to sell soy to the Chinese.

And a 912,031 MAGA hats drifting gently in the breeze in a tumbleweed styleee.
