Last minute thoughts:  We talked earlier this morning about how the team needs to make a change in terms of players and style.  The result of this match will depend on whether that actually happens, or if it was just meant to be more rhetoric from the front office.  Bill Hamid is likely to get his first MLS start tonight and will probably be well tested thanks to the combined 70-year old center backs likely to play in front of him.  But if players like Andy Najar, Christian Castillo, and Adam Cristman can continue to build off their performances from last week, this match could be the start of United's return to the middle of the table.

This is your place for pre-game, in-game, and post-game thoughts.  Let's just hope our boys don't embarass us on national TV again.
