No More YMCA?

What happened to the Village People?

The Crew make their first trip to the Dick in with their new logo tomorrow night.  They're in almost as bad a shape as this one so it may e competitive but bad soccer we see.  Kickoff tomorrow is at 7pm so tailgating, featuring meatball subs, is at 4pm.  'Celo and Fleming have the call on Altitude.

Injury Report:
OUT: D James Riley (concussion); M Lucas Pittinari (hamstring); F Luis Solignac (hamstring)
QUESTIONABLE: D Joseph Greenspan (back)

ONE YELLOW FROM SUSPENSION: M Sam Cronin; M Lucas Pittinari (3 games left for good behavior reduction)
TWO YELLOWS FROM SUSPENSION: D Bobby Burling; D Drew Moor; D James Riley; D Axel Sjoberg; D Jared Watts

D Maynor Figueroa (waiting on paperwork)

Columbus lists Kamara as questionable and has two players suspended due to yellow card accumulation.  I really have no idea what to expect for a starting XI tomorrow but here's my guess:

But really I have no idea.  One new defender in, one defender out due to injury, that's enough of an excuse for Pablo to really do anything.

Strategic Consideration: Get an early lead so the Crew has to chase the game.  Coming from behind hasn't really been our thing.

Prediction: 1-1 draw, goal by Doyle.  Hard to predict a win given how we played last week but the Crew aren't a good team, we should at least be able to get a draw.
