Football Manager 15 projects Sounders as MLS Cup champs

Experts are split on the MLS Cup favorites as the playoffs kick off this week. Sports Illustrated is torn between the Sounders and Galaxy in the West, while two out of the three ESPNFC writers have tabbed Seattle has the team to beat.

Football Manager 15, “the most realistic, in-depth and immersive soccer management game,” according to its own release — and the basis for the greatest soccer video game fan fiction of all-time —  agrees with the latter.

A simulation run ahead of the game’s release on Nov. 7 ended with the Sounders as MLS Cup champs, 2-0 winners over D.C. United in the final.

Other (projected) notables: Seattle beat Dallas 3-0 on aggregate in the Western Conference semifinals and the Galaxy 4-3 in the finals, while Obafemi Martins led the team with two playoff goals.

Prepare your celebrations accordingly.
