10 things we learned from gameweek 22 of the MLS season

Here are the ten things we learned from week 22 of the MLS season.

1. Trouble In Seattle

The Sounders were demolished 3-0 by the Vancouver Whitecaps at home on Saturday night. The loss, Seattle's seventh in their last eight games, hurt for a number of reasons. It happened with Brad Evans, Stefan Frei, and Clint Dempsey all back in the lineup, pushed the team's scoreless streak towards 400 minutes, and came against the one team in MLS that Seattle has always historically dominated.

Here are the 10 things we learned from the 21stweek of the MLS season.

1. Pirlo!

Andrea Pirlo is royalty. There is no other way to explain why opposing players refuse to tackle him, refuse to harass him, refuse, really, to even look threateningly at him.

Pirlo played just a shade over 30 minutes in his NYCFC debut on Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, and he was absolutely magnificent.

Here are the 10 things we learned from week 20 of the MLS season.

1. The Galaxy Raise The Stakes

A fair number in MLS would tell you that the 2014 LA Galaxy was the league's best attacking team ever. The front six – Juninho, Marcelo Sarvas, Stefan Ishizaki, Landon Donovan, Gyasi Zardes, and Robbie Keane – combined for 68 goals in the regular season, and added nine more in the postseason en route to the team's fifth MLS Cup.

The third position in the semifinal home field lottery was good enough. Both the Philadelphia Union and Sporting Kansas City won their semifinal matches on Wednesday night, and by virtue of the Union ranking one spot ahead of Sporting Kansas City in the lottery, they will host the final at PPL Park.
