    According to the Herald, Mutts manager Bobo Bradley's planning on parking CLINT Mathis, Amado 'Che' Guevara and Eddie Pope either for injury or his belief that today's match, regardless of the outcome, is relatively meaningless.
    "Is he trying to tell his team it doesn't matter?" Nicol asked the Herald's Agusto 'Gus' Martins in regards to possibility of Bradley's first line guys sitting out, be it due to injury or to save them. "These are not meaningless games. They are there to be won. We are at home and we want to go out and get the win."

    Amen, Stevie Nicks...

    'Nuff said...

    Nil-nil in the 18'.

    Observation: The pitch looks AWFUL. There's virtually no grass in between the NFL hashmarks are. None.

    The grass around it looks like it's been used and abused, and guys are losing their footing left-and-right.

    I'm watching this on Yahoo Platinum on my PC and it has the Mutts feed, and they aren't showing that much or the crowd because their score "bug" across the top of the screen makes the seats invisible.

    However, on the ground level shots, it looks like the Fort has a lot of people in it, the far side looks better than usual and the south end looks at least 1/3 full.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they announce 17-18 thou.

    Oh yeah, Shep Messing is one VERY irritating "analyst". He's mentioned that Bradley is a "genius" about 5 times in the first half hour for resting the "A team"

    These are fun goals. Short, crisp passing all around. Quick tempo. The goals just natural finishing to great setup. Was the second goal also off Ralston's nifty footwork?
    Pitch looks just awful.

    Why is it that some MLS stadia are much better than others in terms of painting over the American football lines and taking care of it for all tenants?

    Kansas City seems pretty good, and Chicago (Soldier Field) was always great in the past and seems even better now, but the Revs NEVER paint over the lines. I know the Pats are home tomorrow, but Gillette looks horrible. Whether Kraft actually cares about the Revs or not, the ways he prepares the pitch for soccer really doesn't look like he does.

    Metro's pull on back, 5-2.

    Shep was right, this one had some more goals in it.

    Guys, I am not watching the game because I don't have WB, but you what these '3-1' reminds me of? The 3-3 tie that we had against Mutts. Hopefully that won't happen this time. Beside, a "tie" is enough for the second place.

    Message to Pat Noonan: go for a hat trick

    This is unreal.

    Heapsie in the box. IKante coming in. Noonan (?!) with a hat-trick, Fabbro scores, Ralston snaps a suckiness streak with a goal.

    Has Duh-Man-Ee gotten a hat trick?

    Noonan for ROTY.

    wow...while i was typing, the score changed form 3-1 to 5-2:

    Go Revs!!!!! 45points


    I just looked at the MLSnet.com's Scoreboard

    Noonan: Hat trick (6pt)
    Ralston: 2 assist, 1 goal (3 pts)
    Brain Kamler: 3 assist (3pt)
    Fobbro: 1 goal, 1 assist (3pt)
    Jose: 1 assist (1 point)

    Damn Revs Rule

    Hey is the score really 5-2, MLSnet says 5-1.

    Shep REFUSES to give up his "Bradley is a genius" mode.

    Couldn't one just as easily make the case that "Bradley is an idiot" by treating this as a "throw away" (Messing) game?

    1) Your record is now 0-1-3 (W-D-L) against the Revs this year. Wouldn't having confidence that you could actually beat the Revs once be helpful?

    2) The first leg playoff game will make a full three weeks between games for people like Pope. What's the difference between "rested" and "rusty"?

    3) Shep, two words: "Mo Mentum"

    4) Having the second game at home IS important because: a) you know what you have to do in the second leg; b) if it's level on aggregate at the end of 90 minutes of the 2nd leg, the OT is in Foxboro; b) if it's still level after OT, the "minigame" is in Foxboro; and c) if it's still level after that, the PKs are in Foxboro.

    Inquiring minds...

    Interesting tidbit: With TnT and Noonan's results this year, it's only the second time that the Revs have had two double-digit goal scorers in a season. The first was in '99, with JMM and Gio Savarese doing the honors.

    Ironically, the tallies were the same too - JMM and TnT with 15 each, Gio and Noonan with 10 each.

    I think The Perfesser got it wrong.

    We play 90 min @ Mutts on 1st leg.
    No OT even if the game is a tie.

    Then we play 2nd leg @ Gillette and if the aggregate is level at the end of 90 min, then we go to 30 min of OT (15 min each)

    I stand corrected. Go figure. Who knew that MLS would have one procedure for the regular season and one (actually two) for the playoffs? :(

    OK, from MLSNET. No 5 + 5 OT after the 1st leg and no 5 + 5 OT after the second leg. Just the 15 + 15 after leg #2 and then PKs if needed.

    I think Clint Mathis asked to sit out this game because he was afraid of Franchino. I don't blame him.

    Too funny.

    Speaking of Franchino. Pitch looked bad, but the broadcast feed was great. I could see every detail. Did Franchino (Shouldn't Dunkin' Donuts have beverage in his honor?) forget to use the hair conditioner? What the hell was up with that hair style?

    The Mutts are Noonan's personal 8itch. He's killed them. There's one writer, who gets mentioned here quite a bit, panned Noonan at the start of season. He said that virtually no one around the league thought he was going to do doodoo squat. Panned him --- hard, too. So much for the pundits.

    One criticism: Nicol should have yanked Cancela --- all the Mutts were doing to him, especially at the end, was to kick him dead in his ankles (much like their last match in New Jersey). Steve: The refs aren't offering him any safe harbor. And, someone on the Mutts is in need of sound ass whooping. Seriously.

    Pat Noonan, the New York Killer.

    7 goals, 1 assist for 15 points.

    15 out of his 27 (56%) points came against the metrostars!

    I think Noonan should get ROTY honors, less minutes but more production. If Ralph stays off the scoring charts tomorrow, Noonan will only be 1 point behind him. I don't think Ralph has it wrapped up as much as he thought.
