GameThread 28: D.C. United Vs. New England Revolution

New, 101 comments

We've been pretty fortunate the past few weeks, at least from an entertainment standpoint. With matches against the Chicago Fire, New York Red Bulls, and Real Salt Lake, D.C. United had a nice stretch there of teams that, like us, just go out and say "Yo, let's play some soccer."

Despite some attempts that Jay Heaps may have made to correct this, the New England Revolution are not one of such teams. The Revs and still the Revs. Both teams are desperate for wins, which should lead to a physical match of some sport that resembles soccer but isn't quite soccer. I guess it's okay then that our best soccer player won't be on the field?

Game time: 7:30 PM

Television: With no local broadcast, this match can only be viewed on MLS Live and MLS Direct Kick.

Projected starting lineup: They want a physical match? Let's give them a physical match. Let's put Maicon Santos and Lionard Pajoy together up top, with Perry Kitchen and Marcelo Saragosa in central midfield. Chris Pontius and Nick DeLeon will be on the wings, with a back line of Chris Korb, Dejan Jakovic, Brandon McDonald, and Andy Najar. Bill Hamid will be in goal.

Prediction: Both of the previous matches between these teams were settled by a single goal. I'm predicting another 2-1 United win.

What are you drinking? Drinking a White Merlot which isn't as good as I hoped it would be.
