Can we steal 3 points again? Who is going to be in the lineup? Will Petke haunt us?
We won't see Jorge Rojas in the Pink Cows' lineup. The MLS Disciplinary Committee awarded him some bench time for our match.
Another road game the Rapids should be going into expecting to get 3 points.
Yep. I will say its an improvement that we can actually look at a game like this and realistically talk about winning it.
Agree, and we really need these three points with Pablo leaving afterwards. We can't afford to piss away two points again.
As for the lineup I see the same front six and the same back five with possibly Harden or Kimura getting a start instead of Palguta/Ugo, not much difference.
If Petke actually plays, I look for Omar to exploit him.
Our improvement or the RedBulls crash?
Attack and keep attacking. If we can keep them pinned back playing defense, we can win 4-1.
Current odds, New York is favored:
Dallas visiting Chicago:
All that says is that they can get more action from NY peeps. Not so much that one is more likely to win. Degenerates will lay money down on anything, I get the feeling that there are more (based only on population) in NY than in Denver with a home boy bias. Look at how those lines are always skewed for teams closer to Nevada (49ers Raiders Golden State Etc). Besides, shouldn't a home team be favored in most MLS cases? I wouldn't know, since I don't make bets. If I did I'd be a millionare of course. I like how NY is favored by less than Chicago is favored though.
In Polly Anne's world New York fans couldn't skew the odds, because it's against the law to for them to bet online.
I don't bet, but I do find watching the odds intriguing. The bets on the outcome, don't always square with the bets on final score. This information is relatively new for MLS which has been ignored until Toronto joined making MLS betting attractive to fans in Canada who can place a bet.
The home team should always be favored in MLS, unless they're as woeful as Dallas and San Jose. ScaryIce (Climbing the Ladder) did a study of home field dominance in MLS, and there's really not much doubt about it.
1-0 win, goal by Conor Casey. I feel like my Rapids bias is showing on this one, but New York looks pretty bad right now. With the consistent production from Conor Casey I think we can find a way to score, and its about time Pickens puts up a shutout.
Playing the way this team has over the past 3 games or so, we should win 4-0 if we can finish. However, that is what should happen.
Prediction Rapids 1-1 Red Bulls.
Our defense is too disjointed to allow for a shutout.
Could this be the last game Osario coaches for the pink cows?
Hope so. I love Euro-pedigree flops.
They change coaches more frequently than a Hollywood actress changes husbands. Hey, they could always hire a certain Director of Soccer away from the USL.
Ihemelu - Palguta - Gibbs - Harvey
LaBrocca - Ballouchy - Clark
Cummings - Casey
Central defense completely asleep in the opening mminute and the ball skips to a wide open Angel in the box. Pickens with the big save.
Rapids pressing, but then Ihemelu completely over hits a cross, followed by Palguta sending a ball deep that nobody has a chance of catching.
LaBrocca with a good shot from range, Conway had to jump a bit to make the save.
Casey with a header inside the 6, just wide.
Dane Richards == Mr T's love child
Header off a Clark cross for a 1-0 lead.
Medhi attracts 3 and Clark with a decent, floating back post cross for Casey to head in.
Rapids are continuing to push the game after the goal, which is a nice change.
Medhi with a nice ball for Cummings.
Medhi having a good game so far?
