I don’t exactly know the time I will have to update today but I thought I better get this preview out of the way encase. By the way, anyone see Beckham score his first goal last night? Wow, very nice goal, typical Beckham. Only bad part is that it adds another game to the Galaxy schedule that is already packed beyond belief.

Anyways, time to get down to business with New England traveling to Colorado.

On paper you have to take New England here. Colorado will be missing a couple key players up top and in the back due to recent red cards (Gomez and Ihemelu). That hurts the Rapids chances of slowing down the New England attack and midfield. I think this could be a night that Taylor Twellman has a big time game.

New England however hasn’t won in their last five trips to the Rocky Mountain State. I think its time for that to change a bit and put a bit of a fuel on the FireFernandoClavijo.com…fire.

Colorado has to be able to score and not have the other club score for them if they want to win. I know that sounds very stupid and even though it is the truth, I just feel Colorado has no shot at doing this tonight. I cannot see New England going into Colorado with the same type of play that Houston did last week. I would expect more fire into the game out of the Revs, who really are in control of what they do at the moment in the league. A win puts them on top of the table for a couple days and could help them slowly eliminate some bottom clubs from the playoff picture.

The short history aside, I think New England will win this game.

WVH Prediction: New England 2, Colorado 0

    Wow, Colorado put 3 goals past NE w/o reply! Certainly a freak result, isn't it? But the fact is NE has now twice lost 0-3 in the last 3 games.<br />

    Dallas now looks well poised to make a run for the Supporters' Shield with one third of the season to go…

    Who saw this coming? FCD looks like the team playing the best soccer right now and that's w/o several key starters. If Goodson stays healthy the defense should stand up but he gets injued……
