Matchday 16: DCU at RBNY
[FOR THE RECORD, THIS THREAD WAS CREATED AT THE TIME LISTED AND UPDATED WITH LINEUPS AND TEAM INFO AT APPROXIMATELY 4:05 P.M.)
Things that make the car ride from D.C. to the Meadowlands tolerable:
*Prius's 52 mpg
*XM Radio's The Loft
*Smart Tag/EZ Pass
*James Fenimore Cooper's rest area
So United embarks on the second half of its league schedule today against a New York club that has slipped since its impressive start. No Moreno, Olsen or Angel, but lots of artificial turf.
With SuperLiga starting this week, it should be noted that United has entered into talks with FedEx Field to host a semifinal Aug. 14 or 15 against L.A., Dallas, Chivas or Pachuca. The first hurdle is United advancing out of group play. The second hurdle is United being awarded hosting rights for that match. Baltimore's Oriole Park at Camden Yards has also expressed interest. RFK is not available because of a Nationals home series.
It's going to be a 4-5-1 of sorts......

United brought only 17 players instead of the usual 18 for a road match. North was scratched from the trip because of a hamstring injury and Arguez was left at home. No official explanation, other than coach's decision.
