I'm interested to see how LAFC does, they tore up the regular season last year and then choked.

Jordan I think it will be really interesting to watch LAFC and how they deal with no Vela if he indeed doesn't play.

So many things happening that this tournament is going to have to adapt on the fly. As well as individual teams.

 

Dallas is out so that means Group B is down to 3 teams. An also ran is going to advance unless they change the rules.

 

Nashville has had a handful of positive tests the since the weekend and who knows if they will be able to continue? Although losing them wouldn't really impact the overall tournament. They are one of the weaker teams and in Group A, the six team group. However if they do drop out its hard to imagine that the schedule for Group A wouldn't have to be adjusted due to the imbalance in the number of games played by the remaining teams in that Group.

 

Carlos Vela is staying home so LAFC has a huge hole to fill.

 

Vancouver will be missing five players including their Designated Player, Lucas Cavallini.  But they are also in Group B so the now have an easier road to advance. Still very doubtful in that Seattle should walk through easily and San Jose is better than the Caps. But the fewer games there are in any sport the higher the chance of fluke results.

 

But the best news is that its back. Tonight!

Would think one of the Group A teams would replace Dallas in Group B, right?

Well that seems like the logical move, especially if Nashville has to drop out. Schedule would need to change but dont think that would be a big issue since there is no travel involved.
