We know now who will be in the playoffs. We do not know how the fixtures will go per the wildcard teams. I kind of hope Philadelphia can be nosed out of the seeded positions. Using this as a worksheet, here are the clubs in post season play.

Western Conference:

  • LA Galaxy (67 points) Play Houston
  • Seattle Supersounders (60 points) Play Chivas
  • Real Salt Lake (52 points) Play Portland Timbers
Eastern Conference:

  • Sporting KC (48 points) Play DC Utd.
  • Phila. Union (48 points) No more games
  • Columbus Crew (47 points) Play Chicago Fire
Wildcards as of now:

  • FC Dallas (52 points) Play San Jose Earthquakes
  • Colo. Rapids (46 points) Play the Vanc. Whitecaps
  • NY RedBulls (46 points) No more games
  • Houston Dynamo (46 points) Sunday vs. LA Galaxy
Maybe we will see some juggling in the standings yet. Philadelphia can be placed in a wild card position but that would seem to depend on Houston defeating LA Galaxy. At home, I guess it is a possibility. Would the Gals rest their stars? They just played that Champions League game in Honduras, that's a lot of travel and play.
