For the first time this year the week has started on a Saturday! At least on purpose that is, last week the Friday game was postponed due to snow! Yea, snow! The weather in the USA is crazy, but who cares, we still have soccer! I'll show you my final team and then we can get into talking about next week!

Final Team (Vamos DC United):
Bench: Diskerud/Hines/Hollingshead/Rowe

Week 5 Fixtures:

Orlando City vs. D.C. United
Seattle Sounders vs. Houston Dynamo
Chicago Fire vs. Toronto FC
Colorado Rapids vs. New England Revolution
Vancouver Whitecaps vs. LA Galaxy
Portland Timbers vs. FC Dallas
San Jose Earthquakes vs. Real Salt Lake
Sporting Kansas City vs. Philadelphia Union

The only teams not playing are Montreal Impact and New York Red Bulls.

Some good matchups to look at are:

New England vs. Colorado. Two struggling teams that need to get some goals and a win if they want to keep up with the playoff push early. Colorado (if they don't score this week) are at 510 minutes of game time without a goal going back to last season. New England still haven't scored this year (before week 4 has started) and were one of the favorites to win the cup this year, so if they want to keep up with expectations, they need to get a win.

Sporting KC vs. Philadelphia. Another bottom battle. Sporting KC changed conferences this year from the east to west, and seem to be struggling so far. Dom Dwyer, 2nd in the golden boot last year, hasn't scored a goal yet and seems to be off the mark. If Sporting KC want's to get going, win they must, and win they will.

The other matchups seem like they could really go any way they want, and could be very interesting, but it's all up in the air. Show me your teams this week, I'd love to see them! Good luck all!
