    Metros havent beaten San Jose in the last 10+ games. thats an incredible stat they have a paternity over Metros, lets see what our dearly beloved metros can do to change that.

    I remember their last game at Giants Stadium. Just when I thought the Metros had them beat, Landon put on a little show and tied it up. Confidence ain't too high going into Spartan Stadium on Sunday, and I'd be happy to get a point. Pessimistic? Yeah, but the MetroStars haven't inspired much confidence in me lately.

    Sorry if you already have this somewhere.
    But with all the hype from the Semis game we forget that we still have a couple of games left in MLS (and we haven't qualified yet). We can do it this weekend. By looking at the standings, am I wrong to say that by beating the Quakes we only need DC to beat the Crew and we qualify, we do qualify but not DC even with that win. Hey, it would be a MIRACLE if we get these guys at their home on Sunday but what are all of our games about?

    GO METROS!!!

    Here's to the Komeback Kings. May they jump out in front for a change, become Miracle Workers, and not have to come back at all! Just come home with a result.

    Keeping the double Ds under wraps will take a miracle -- but we need the 3 points more than they do. Seems only fair to me. :)

    The last time they played it was a 4-4 game. This time we don't have Clint (who scored 2 that night) and Williams. But we didn't have Pope and Jolley in the last game due to injury. This game looks could be billed as the Best Offense in MLS vs. the Best Defense in MLS.

    Gotta love this picture from that game:

    I really think we can clip them this game. The team is riding on a high, after the key tie against DC, and the victory in the Semis of the USOC.

    Our defense has to be strong this game. Pope will obviously mark Landon. Their defense is probably their weakest link, and can be broken if we hold the midfield. This is Gueverra's game. We die on how he plays, and the Quakes are going to be out to get him (especially after what happened at that game). Hopefully he'll be ready for the challenge. Gaven is also crucial in this game, as he is very good at slowing the game down, and holding onto the ball. The less Landon sees the ball, the better.

    Ironic. By putting an [R] on the subject header of your thread, people will avoid reading your post until after the game. Yet, the information contained in this thread could be useful for those who are unaware that the game is on TV, but won't see it until the game is over.


    Yes, I understand you are putting an [R] for future game spoiler posts. I just thought it was amusing.

    No Mathis this game, obviously due to the red last game, but the posotive is that Williams is also out, because of exceeding caution points.

    Hopefully Bradley will play this:

    Both teams are on a high at the moment, and Quakes are sitting on a bit of a streak, having clobbered KC & Dallas after losing to the scum.

    It will come down to how well we can contain an offense that has exploded lately, and we not only have to worry about Donovan but DeRosario is showing good form after sitting out much of the season with an injury. If the defense can keep them under wraps, and Woly, Amado, Magee etc. can create some chances on the other end, this will be a close, exciting game Sunday.

    Just wondering, are any other West Coast Metro fans gonna be there?

    Please coach Bob, isn't it obvious enough now that Junko can't move or play soccer anymore.

    Start Magee.

    I know this sounds crazy, but I think Metros get their first blowout with a 3-0 win.

    This game has upset written all over it. SJ has almost clinched first place so the Metros have more to gain with a win.

    By the way, the Quakes are giving away 10,000 free Landon Donovan T-Shirts with the help of a sponsor. Any reason Metros can't do things like this to attract fans? Last week, they gave away a small cardboard MetroStar fan that was stapled to a an ice-cream stick. Yep, that will have the fans packing the place. :rolleyes:

    That thing only made it as far as the garbage can at the foot of the escalator.

    What was that supposed to be? A fan? Something alternatively annoying as those plastic horns?

    My guess is that our formation would look something like this:

    I think that's a super lineup. I wouldn't be surprised if Bradley lets Edgar run wild on the left side, making it more of a 3-5-2, instead of a 4-4-2. We can't just sit back and let these guys move that ball around. We really need to take it to them. We need to keep the ball away from Ekelund. I really believe our midfield can outclass their midfield this game. If that happens, the game will depend on how well both teams can finsih. There will be chances, but who can finish the ball. This is a crucial game, because we have faint hopes of catching up to Chicago. Who knows, maybe they lose this weekend, and all of a sudden instead of 5 points, they are only 2 ahead of us. A lot more interesting in my book.

    Did Jusko play badly against DC at the USOC Semis?????

    Yup, u can say that, its like he wasn't even out there for the most part. Made a few decent passes but would give one up or a bad 1st touch right after.
