Sounders v New York Red Bulls - Gamethread

Bring us more joy tonight! - Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Sunday night 6 PM ESPN match will be a contest for first place overall, playoff seeding and another fun night at CenturyLink Field.

Thierry Henry and Jamison Olave may not think this match matters, but it quite clearly does. So when ESPN turns the cameras on CenturyLink Field for the 2nd time in two days they will do so with a possible preview of the MLS Cup Final. Seattle Sounders FC and New York Red Bulls are clearly two of the best of the league.

Sigi Schmid will need his men to focus on the Red Bull left side. They channel their attack through that. Cahill is a pretty unique talent around MLS. Mostly used as a central mid he pops up and scores quite a bit. Having someone on him will be imperative. The crossing prowess of Rosales and Burch should be able to generate extra creativity with Olave out and Eddie Johnson playing.

6:00 PM - you and 40,000 of your friends. As a reminder, this is the wrong match for Red Bull. It doesn't give you wings. If it did Henry would be here.
