Well the Howard news certainly puts a damper on this game. Its pretty much a must win game for the hopes of this season though. A flat game like we saw in KC and you have to start questioning what our chances really are this season. At home against our rival I expect to see fire and better play.

When Tim Howard was named to the U.S. Men's National Team roster for the impending World Cup qualifiers, he placed a phone call to the man who convinced Howard at the age of 11 that he had extraordinary potential as a goalkeeper Tim Mulqueen.

While Howard may have surprised some observers, including USMNT head coach Bruce Arena, Mulqueen never doubted that his 38-year-old pupil would be physically fortified following a long term injury.

Update On Camp Trialists

View From The Couch at related • 0 views
Daniel Boniface came through with the info on the 4 trialists in camp. I was wrong in my earlier post tonight, Epstein is not one of the Academy goalkeepers. In short (see Boniface's article for the full details):

GK Cody Mizell (Charlotte, played with Atlanta and Tampa in NASL)
GK Connor Gavigan (Creighton, played in the Rapids Academy)
GK Kai Likewise (Rapids U-18 Academy team)
M Jun Marques Davidson (Charlotte, spent time in MLS with Vancouver)

The fact that we have 3 extra keepers in camp makes me wonder if there's a possible GK deal int he works for Berner or (more likely) MacMath.

Given the Union's defensive struggles down the stretch, a veteran presence should be welcomed.

After a catastrophic collapse from first place in the Eastern Conference all the way to sixth and barely squeezing into the playoffs, the Union conceded goals at an alarming rate. As a matter of fact, they conceded 55 goals in 2016 with MLS Goalkeeper of the Year Andre Blake behind them.
