FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Here's the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony song that I couldn't stop thinking about in relation to this match.
Minnesota United FC lost 5-2 to the New England Revolution on Saturday at Gilette Stadium. Kind of a regression from a 2-2 draw last weekend at the Colorado Rapids.
“It’s difficult. It might seem like one step forward and two steps back, but I would think that it’s more important to think of what we’re doing overall and trying to keep the momentum rolling forward," midfielder Collen Warner said. "So yeah, this is defintly a hit. And it's definitely going to take us bouncing back and addressing some of these issues."
The best case scenario is United just coudn't overcome missing 10 players, six of them former starters, because of injuries, national team call-ups and a suspension. The worst case is Colorado was an anomaly, and United really is going to be the worst MLS team of all time.
Let's see what happens against Real Salt Lake at home next weekend, shall we?
