At the time of this writing I am not sure of the outcome of Saturday MLS results but one thing for sure is that this one between the Dynamo and Red Bulls is can’t miss and of huge importance.
This is a new “Red Bulls” that has a fighting spirit while the Dynamo always are the “masters” of getting results at this time of the year.
Five things to look for:
1.) STRIKERS MUST PRODUCE
Clearly the Dynamo midfield has been solidified and is key in the five game unbeaten streak.
Pressure on both Will Bruin and Giles Barnes to score goals from the strike position
when they are presented.
Teams tighten things up at this time of the year and to find goals is more difficult. If you get chances like you did against Sporting KC, you have got to deliver the goods. All eyes on Bruin and Barnes if they get chances !!!
Strikers can be the difference at this time of the year.
2.) DYNAMO MIDFIELD SOLID
Solidarity in midfield for the Dynamo has been the big key in the turn-around.
Go right to Rico Clark and now the string of consistency of four games with Warren Creavalle and you have solidarity. With Brad Davis and Boniek Garcia manning the flanks this midfield is as good as it gets in my opinion when on.
Athletic, creative, full of ideas.
Still respect New York in midfield with Cahill and McCarty in the midfield vs Clark and Creavalle.
Johnny Steel, Eric Alexander, Lloyd Sam make up a great midfield battle! This will be a turf war.
3.) GOALKEEPING could be the difference!
With Tally Hall and Luis Robles you have two of the tops in the league.
Either can produce a performance that wins a game.
4.) WIDE GAME MUST RULE
Simply Davis and Ashe likely vs. Kimura and Sam.
Boniek Garcia and Sarkodie vs. Steel and Carney.
What is interesting here is that most all of this so called wide men in midfield like to come inside.
5.) BUTTS in SEATS
IT is a sell out but it does not matter if you don’t show to support ! If you aren’t going make sure you pass your tickets on to someone else. I for one am tired of looking at empty orange seats!!! Go time!
