This brewing rivarly continues with an early one today as the Philadelphia Union visit RFK Stadium and DC United for the first time in their short history. The Union defeated United 3-2 in their home match earlier in the year. With the two worst defenses in the league in terms of goals allowed, we might expect another high scoring match today.
Game Time: 2:00 PM Eastern
Television: Comcast SportsNet
Projected Starting Lineup: Cross your fingers that Dejan Jakovic is healthy enough to start today next to Julius James at center back. Another Carey Talley appearance could mean another hat trick for Sebastien Le Toux. As for the front six, the chances are probably pretty good that we won't see any changes to the lineup that has scored only one goal in the previous three matches, although the coaching staff could choose to send a message to Santino Quaranta after he got into a fight with goalkeeper coach Mark Simpson in practice this week. Chris Pontius, who began last week's match on the bench, could be asked to start in his place.
If you're going to the stadium, sing loud and have fun. If not, this is your place for pre-game, in-game, and post-game comments.
