MLS: New England Revolution - Seattle Sounders

New England will be looking to bounce back from a 4-2 home loss to FC Dallas and for new and very expensive striker Kei Kamara to start gelling with the talented Revolution midfield. This is a mini transition period for NER as they try to play to get the best out of their new front man who had 31 goals in 46 appearances for Columbus Crew, but now that he has 180 minutes of game time under his belt and Revolution a second free midweek in a row and almost three weeks based in Boston, it looks time to get going. Not least because they have three road games up next and do not play at Foxborough again until July 6th !

Seattle are struggling on the road (0-1-3) , where they have scored just three goals , they made the 3,000 mile cross country trip here on Thursday without Clint Dempsey (US national team), Nelson Valdez (Paraguay) and back up striker Oalex Anderson. That leaves Jody Morris as the only available forward with goals this season and with Lamar Neagle and Obafemi Martins having moved on , this is not the old free scoring Sounders, at least at present.There are creating chances, but all from distance and are simply not getting in the box often enough. I guess Morris will move into the middle, which he will like, but that hardly addresses the supply issue, with no experienced option on the right.

Good chance for Revolution, who won this match up 5-0 the last time these two met on the East Coast ( two years ago).
