No wins in New England in a decade.

It's about fucking time to get a win in New England. Even if it is turf, Henry should play. He played on turf last year against Portland. In the other turf games he was either injured or suspended. We are shorthanded and he should play.

Backe said on the post game that Rafa should play which surprised me. Definitely don't expect henry.

Conde and Rafa in the back. Just comes down to whether we can score because Lindpere and Richards have to play better.

At least those three games will all be at home...10 H versus 7 A in the 2nd half of the season...nice.

Caught a little of the Seattle Revs game last night. Those Krafts are some cheap fuckers. The Revs turf has bubbles, divots & seam separations all over the place. How they get away with using it as a professional field makes me think Don "the Don" Garber is in league with Chuck Blazer & Jack Warner ("Just leave the paper bag filled with hundreds on the empty chair next to me. Don't look at me. Don't talk to me. Put the bag on the chair and walk away. Everything will be taken care of").....

Boycott the field & take the points deduction. :ph34r:

Its not worth the injury risk to play Henry on that miserable turf. Sit him; we'll make do without him. Hopefully, Rafa will be back to help with distribution and Ballouchy with possession and creativity in the midfield to get Coop and the wings involved. (I can't believe I just wrote that sentence, but it's true)

Go Metro.

Edit: I'd like to see Rafa with Conde at CB, see how they do together, since Pearce is certainly not going to play. It may be an interesting dilemma when Pearce is healthy:

Pearce at LB
Conde and Rafa CB (with Hulk spelling Conde for a break now and then)
Miller / Lade combo as LMid options
Proud supporter and STH of RBNY - In it through thick and thin.

Forza Metro! We love ya. Oh, and Fuck DC scum.

I'd love to see Henry in the same role he had during the D.C. game -- on the bench, available as a spark if we're looking lethargic late.

But if I have to choose between 20/30 (even 90) minutes of Henry on Sunday or a healthy Henry for the remainder of our run, I choose healthy Henry every time. Marquez on the other hand...

Well, we better come out different than Toronto or it's going to be one of those "Same Old Metro" moments. Don't really know what to think what works well anymore.

Again... I don't think Solli will be benched after goals in 2 straight games... when he has never sat out a game healthy for this team.

If someone sits it will be Joel, Richards or Ballouchy, or Rafa at RCB with Conde

Ok, Rafa moves to the defense, sending Keel to the bench. Lindpere slides into CM with Solli at LM.
