After MLS Cup meltdown, Philly rallies around man who eats entire rotisserie chicken for 40 straight days

When Jack Elliott's 120+4' effort on the rebound put the Philadelphia Union up 3-2 on LAFC in Saturday's MLS Cup, it seemed like a fittingly batshit crazy ending to a remarkable match. Philly, after coming back from one-goal deficits twice during regular time, could breath easy and the city's special unit for greasing the poles could begin its work.

De Justin Bieber a levantar el trofeo: El día en que Carlos Vela se convirtió en campeón de la MLS

Cinemático, hollywoodense, extático y una dosis de mexicanidad. LAFC se coronó campeón de la MLS por primera vez en su historia al vencer a Philadelphia Union en una de las finales más emocionantes de la liga estadounidenses. Y Carlos Vela puso más que un granito de arena en la consecución del título.  

Además de los 12 goles y 13 asistencias que produjo durante la temporada 2022, el capitán de los angelinos influyó en dos de los tres goles que llevaron el partido a una emocionante definición a penales. 

LAFC wins MLS Cup after Gareth Bale scores 128th minute equalizer in greatest MLS game ever

The greatest game in Major League Soccer history was played on Saturday as LAFC defeated the Philadelphia Union to win MLS Cup 3-0 on penalty kicks after tying 3-3. There aren’t adjectives adequate to describe the excitement, heartbreak and drama this game had.

With the Philadelphia Union leading 3-2 in the final minutes of extra time, Gareth Bale was the hero of Los Angeles when he scored the latest goal in MLS Playoff history. A powerful header in the 128th minute saved his team which was on the brink of defeat.

LAFC’s Kellyn Acosta was perplexed after reporter asks him if Philadelphia was excited for MLS Cup

Video from a Kellyn Acosta press conference ahead of the MLS Cup clash between LAFC and the Philadelphia Union has been spreading on social media after a reporter asked a bizarre question. 

Acosta has plenty on his mind. The 27-year-old midfielder is in his 11th season playing in Major League Soccer and has the chance to win his first MLS Cup on Saturday. Acosta is a lock for the United States’ World Cup roster and could make his World Cup debut 16 days after playing in MLS Cup.

College football game takes parking and tailgating away from MLS Cup fans

There's no one really to blame here. LAFC didn't know it'd be hosting MLS Cup this Saturday until defeating Austin in the Western Conference finals last Sunday, and I will entertain no talk of the game being shifted back to a predetermined neutral location — I'm old enough to remember the Colorado Rapids taking on FC Dallas in Canada. 

But Saturday's MLS Cup final at Banc of California Stadium in the Exposition Park neighborhood of Los Angeles — kick off at 1:05 p.m. on the West Coast — has run directly into a scheduling conflict with the behemoth USC Trojans football program.

MLS Cup predictions for Saturday's clash of the titans

For the first time in far too long, MLS Cup is a meeting between the premier teams in the Western and Eastern Conferences. If it feels like we've been waiting a while for this sort of heavyweight clash, the anticipation is only heightened by two sides that make creating a 2022 MLS Cup prediction feel like a fool's errand.

Both teams and their respective squads have been steadily building towards this moment for years, and the pain of falling agonizingly short time after time has been eased with a first-ever MLS Cup appearance for both clubs.

Philadelphia is MLS Cup bound after thrilling comeback to eliminate NYCFC

The Philadelphia Union are playing in their first MLS Cup after taking out defending champions NYCFC 3-1 at Subaru Park on Sunday night. 

NYCFC — previously unbeaten in six straight postseason matches — sucked the life out of the ground in the 57th minute when Maxi Moralez orchestrated a quick break and finished it himself with a driven finish from 22 yards out. 

It seemed like Philly was forever destined to choke and the 35-year-old Moralez forever destined to dance all over them.

Philadelphia Union bests FC Cincinnati and advances to second Eastern Conference final in-a-row
