July 31st, Metro vs. Crew, 7:30 PM at GS. Last game before the all-star break. Chance to go into the break in first place and with a winning record. Chicago hosts DC United- the worst team in the league- so they can pretty much count on 3 points there (DC is 0-8-1 on the road, or something like that, I can't find the current stat). We need to win this game. Key players out: Columbus: M John Wilmar Perez (sprained MCL-L) MetroStars: D Marcelo Balboa (knee bone bruise-R), M Brad Davis (partial tear, plantar fascia-L), M/F Clint Mathis (torn meniscus & sprained MCL-R), M Tab Ramos (torn hamstring-L) Tomorrow's forecast is 94 and mostly sunny, so plan on it being something like 88 or so at kickoff. discuss.
