Can the Crew Buck History?

ekpocrew Can the Crew Buck History?

If Columbus wins tonight, we’ll have our first ever MLS Cup Final that does include DC United, the LA Galaxy, Houston/San Jose or Chicago.  MLS can rightly claim it is more competitive than I ridiculed it for not being just a few short months ago.

The keys tonight:

  • The Crew backline led by Chad Marshall have to stand strong and not be caught out of position.
  • Chicago needs to clog the midfield and prevent Rogers and Gaven from finding space.
  • The Crew need to follow Guille Schelotto’s veteran leadership and not find themselves falling for the provocation and mind games of the unsporting Cuauhtemoc Blanco.
  • Chris Rolfe needs to be looking for opportunities to go forward linking up with Blanco.

I will not be able to provide commentary tonight for this huge game, probably the most exciting matchup we have had in MLS all year. I will be attending the ACC game on ESPN going on at the same time as the Eastern Conference Final is being played on ESPN 2. I will not see the game until tomorrow on my DVR. Feel free to leave in game commentary here.
