The Slow Buildup
It is still three days until Saturday’s game and it seems like a long time since the tie in Kansas City. There were a few notes trickling out during the soccer lull, including the announcement that the Conference Final will be played next Thursday, November 13th at 7:30 PM, if the Crew get that far.
The MLS Defender of the Year will also be announced tomorrow. William Hesmer missed out on winning Goalkeeper of the year on Monday to former Crew player Jon Busch, but I expect Chad Marshall to win this award.
