Moreno Is Back
Coach Tom Soehn said this morning that team captain Jaime Moreno will travel with the club today to Houston for Wednesday's crucial SuperLiga match against the Dynamo.
Will he start? I doubt it.
Will he play? If the circumstances allow it. Soehn was able to get a few minutes for the recovering Kpene and Namoff on Sunday against Club America and I am sure he would like to do the same for Moreno.
What this does mean is that Moreno should be available for significant minutes this weekend at New England and perhaps start against Los Angeles next Thursday.
Also on the injury front, Kpene and Namoff participated in full workouts this morning and will make the trip. My guess is that, considering the quality of United's play Sunday, Soehn will go with the same starting lineup at Houston. There is, however, a question of fatigue considering this will be United's (and Houston's) third game in eight days and United will have to play on the road again this weekend.
