Once More Unto The Breach Dear Friends


For some reason the idea of watch another Rapids game this season reminds me of Henry V encouraging his troops into one more attack.  Its a rough job, but they wouldn't call us fans if it was easy. ;)  Tomorrow we get the Whitecaps coming to town, a team that's also looking to turn their season around.  Join C38 for a post-work happy hour starting at 4, with kickoff at 7.  Altitude TV for those who can't make it.

Player Availability:
Injuries:
OUT: D Kortne Ford (L MCL sprain); D Marlon Hairston (right knee surgery)

Discipline:
SUSPENDED AFTER NEXT YELLOW CARD: F Dominque Badji

No changes there, but the real question is will there be changes in the starting XI?  Vancouver is missing Watson to national team duty and has one player out and one questionable.  My guess at the starting XI:


I really hope I'm wrong, but I expect Hudson to make small changes and be stubborn about his system and his guys, namely Boateng and Wynne.  If he does actually make changes, starts Serna and Gashi in the midfield, we might have a chance to end this downwards spiral.

Prediction: 1-1 draw, goal by Badji,  If Hudson makes real changes we can win this game, but like I said, I don't expect him to.  Vancouver is a bad team though, so even our bad team can get a point.  A point isn't enough though, and this result (should it come to pass) essentially ends our season on June 1st.
