GameThread: San Jose Earthquakes At D.C. United

New, 11 comments

Tonight, D.C. United will try to do what they haven't done since June 2009 - win consecutive league matches. For the second week in a row, they face a team that appears bound for the playoffs in the San Jose Earthquakes.

Game time: 7:30 PM

Television: CSN+ (Channel 1 on FIOS)

Projected Starting Lineup: As Jaime Moreno gets set to return to the starting lineup in pursuit of recapturing his all-time goals scoring record from Jeff Cunningham, it is the defense that will be a bigger concern for United. The central defensive pairing of Clyde Simms and Jed Zayner may be the worst we've had since the days of Greg Janicki. And yet a similar backline (with Dejan Jakovic in place of Simms) shut out the Colorado Rapids just a week ago. Carlos Varela is likely to get his first start in the midfield with Andy Najar out due to yellow card accumulation.

There's no reason to think that United should win this match. So why do I have this feeling that we're poised for another upset........?
