Seattle and Toronto won the past two MLS Cups -- why are they at the bottom of the league?

Alejandro Moreno and Herculez Gomez break down everything that went wrong for Toronto against Chivas in the 1st leg of the CCL final.

For the past two years, both Toronto FC and the Seattle Sounders have stood atop the MLS mountaintop. Seven weeks into the 2018 season, however, the 2016 and 2017 finalists have been anything but dominant in league play.

It's still very early; look no further than Seattle's 2016 season to show that a team can overcome poor form as late as July to make a run to the playoffs and win MLS Cup. All the same, should fans of the two sides be feeling a little worried?

For Toronto FC, despite a 1-3-0...

As Sounders age, Schmetzer will need to get out of his tactical comfort zone

Kasey Keller and Alejandro Moreno examine how Seattle's looming CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal against Chivas impacted their loss to LAFC.

Although the deck was stacked against him in lots of ways, Seattle Sounders coach Brian Schmetzer did have a few advantages when he took over from Sigi Schmid in the summer of 2016.

As Schmid's longtime top assistant, and having previously been the head coach of the Sounders in the USL, Schmetzer knew the roster intimately. For more than seven years, he had imagined himself in Schmid's shoes, paying close attention to what he'd copy as well as what he'd do differently.
