The final MLS Cup final preview is here. With Andrew on the ground in Columbus, Ohio, David, Matt, and Ben "The Researcher" Baer ensure every angle of this championship matchup is exposed. Portland brings an incredible away record into MAPFRE Stadium against the high-flying and suddenly stout Crew SC. Who will be the X factor? Which coach holds a stronger hand, and who best plays his cards? Is Portland’s 2-1 September victory in Columbus even relevant? And so much more.
In the second segment, Timbers defender and England international Liam Ridgewell makes his first ETR appearance. Liam discusses what it was like sitting out for the 2nd leg of the Western Conference Championship and then receiving a raucous airport greeting from Timbers Army, makes a guarantee involving the "Ridgy-roll," and casts his star for the Liam Ridgewell movie we’re clearly going to green-light.
In the mailbag: expansion talk in the "State of the league," Matt Doyle’s magic numbers, and renaming Kei Kamara’s “man-bun."
