NEW YORK (WFAN) –– In the latest episode of the “Soccer in the City” podcast, hosts Tom Kolker, Roberto Abramowitz and Glenn Crooks (John Rojas was out sick) review the first leg of the MLS conference finals, and they were not exactly impressed. And because of it, the guys offer up a solution on how to make the playoffs more exciting.

They also discuss the uncertain future of the Columbus Crew — is there a chance they could actually stay in Columbus? As far as moving to Austin, Texas, is concerned, would that be a good MLS city? A lot of critics point to the MLS teams in Houston and Dallas, where attendance has lagged, and wonder why Austin would be any different. Yet there has been recent expansion success in other cities, others have argued.
