The Blue Links: November 9th, 2015

Dom trolls everyone in KC, MLS playoffs have been as insane as expected, and NYCFC has found their new head coach in a French legend.

Season is over for SKC, but we're here all year long baby.

In a offseason lull, Dom decided to troll everyone on Saturday with this tweet.

This was indeed a PEACE OUT to KC... but he'll be coming back. They're just finally getting a honeymoon.

I love this human! Honeymoon time ❤️❤️❤️

The conference semi-finals wrapped up on Sunday and did not disappoint! Bradley Wright-Phillips finished off DC United and sent the New York Red Bulls through to the next round with a late goal. They will be taking on the Columbus Crew after a crazy match that went into extra time.

Montreal came in with a lead on aggregate, but superstar Didier Drogba simply disappeared and the Impact's season was ended. Our old friend Kei Kamara missed a penalty kick but scored two goals including the winner in the 111' minute.

The Whitecaps and the Timbers drew 0-0 in the first leg but the Timbers went into Vancouver and got two goals to advance. It would take penalties to decide their opponent for next round.

FC Dallas eliminated the Seattle Sounders winning in PK's 4-2. There were three goals scored after the 84' minute and it was insane.. just watch.

You can find the schedule for the rest of the playoffs right here. MLS Cup is set for December 6th.

After recently firing head coach Jason Kreis, NYCFC have filled the vacancy. The legend Patrick Viera, after a brief stint as a player with Manchester City to end his career, has been coaching in their Elite Development Squad. But he will now take on the task of a first team coach in a league he knows absolutely nothing about. This will be interesting. The team itself isn't very good and now they are taking on a risk with a first time coach who is unfamiliar with all the complexities of this weird league.

After being left off the latest roster, Clint Dempsey says he isn't done with the national team.

But World Cup Qualifying is already here! USA takes on St. Vincent and the Grenadines on Friday in St. Louis. Jurgen can't possibly mess things up in this match can he?
