GameThread: AC Milan at DC United

New, 5 comments

The Italian giants AC Milan visit RFK Stadium tonight for a much hyped international friendly against our beloved DC United. DC has a history of not getting embarassed in these sorts of matches. Let's see if they can continue that tradition tonight and gain some momentum to use in league play.

Game time: 8:00pm EST

Television: Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic, ATDHE.net

Projected Starting Lineup:

    Hamid    
Graye Talley   Pena Wallace
  Simms   King  
Najar       Pontius
  Emilio   Quaranta  

 

Last minute thoughts:  Well that wasn't the starting lineup for United that any of us would have expected.  It's great to see names like Chris Pontius and Santino Quaranta back in the starting lineup, but each is playing in a different position from where he started the season. Stephen King will feel the pressure of getting his first start with United in such a huge setting. We will also get to see Luciano Emilio in the first 11 for the first time since 2009, and the two Academy products Bill Hamid and Andy Najar will surely gain some great experience tonight.

This is your place for pre-game, in-game, and post-game thoughts.
