Wooden Spoon Battle

Choose Your Weapon

If you thought last week's game was unbearable this week's game might be worse.  We've go the Rapids, last place int he Wast, versus the Fire, last place in the East.  Ugly, ugly soccer ahead.  Kickoff tomorrow is at 6:30pm with a watch party at the Southside Bar & Kitchen.

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

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

Chicago has one player out and two more questionable.  Pablo is running out of defensive midfielders so we're going to have to see something different this week.  My guess: 

6 defenders is aon the low side for Pablo recently but its just a guess..

Strategic Consideration: Score a goal, win a game.

Prediction: 0-0 draw.  These teams are bad and this will be bad pointless soccer.
