HUGE game for DC United tonight at Portland. Anything less than a draw or win hurts. The playoff race is so tight.
After tonight DC has 3 games remaining. At Toronto, home vs Columbus and at Chicago to end it.

Here's to you clinching a playoff slot tonight bsf.
You guys are just hitting form again at the right time.
*Edit* Scrap that. For some reason known only to a lack of sleep, I was thinking top 10 made the playoff's. not top 8.

Watching Being Liverpool on Fox Soccer, and they are putting up subtitles when Steven Gerrard speaks.
ha ha. I was recently watching some news clip from Britain and they spoke over the interviewee in "American" (as a means of translation). I thought that was really funny.
If I had a dollar for every time an American has said 'Sir, can you please slow down and start again.' And that's AFTER I've dumbed down.
If you got me back home among my own, I'd make the above mentioned Gerrard sound like Hugh Grant.
some more confirmation that the premiership may be bent
Accrington Stanley vs. Rochdale is where Chris Foy will be on Saturday at 3pm BST. I wonder why@City_Watch
Chris Foy demoted to League 2 after United's loss to Spurs. And people wonder why referees are afraid to give decisions against them.
Everton keeps on rolling, they are so fun to watch this year. Even more so than the end of last year.
The Premier League has denied that Chris Foy's officiating of a League Two game this weekend is as a result of a demotion, following recent criticism aimed at the referee from Sir Alex Ferguson.
Foy was on the wrong end of a furious Ferguson on Saturday, with the Manchester United manager blaming him for his side's 3-2 defeat to Tottenham.
The referee was accused of turning down two clear penalties as well as only playing four minutes of injury time.
The Merseyside official has been given the League Two clash between Accrington Stanley and Rochdale this Saturday in the wake of Ferguson's rant.
However, Premier League bosses insist Foy has not been demoted and have backed his Old Trafford performance.
"There is absolutely no truth in suggestions Chris has been demoted or punished in some way," spokesman Phil Dorward said. "The fact is it is his turn to officiate at a League game this weekend.
"Chris has refereed more Premier League games than most this season and there is a rota system in place.
"We have been delighted with the standard of Chris's performances. He's having a good season."
Foy was embroiled in controversy last season after coming under fire for his performance in Tottenham's 2-1 defeat to Stoke, leading Spurs fans to take to Twitter to abuse the official, only to mistake him for Olympic cyclist Chris Hoy.

So, Kean gone and Rovers have had two draws since then. Eric Black as the interim manager and from the sounds of it he's already been better than Kean because he's been trying to shore up the defense. Played a 3-5-2, I believe (or a 5-3-2) against Nottingham Forrest for a 0-0 draw, neither side really having any bite for various reasons. Still, I find it encouraging because Black is trying new things to help the squad shore up the defense and also that the squad has earned two draws under an interim manager.

Some may say its just a game. But it's about heroes and tribes, loyalty and devotion. It's our commitment and our passion, our battle and our belief.
