Sounders FC v. Columbus Crew, pregame notes & lineups

Checking in from Crew Stadium on a clear and sunny evening in Ohio. Normally I have a picture up here, but the glare has prevented all my shots from being viewable up in the pressbox.

Should be an interesting game with a “Silence the Sounders” theme tonight. Seattle has only won once in its last four MLS games and is winless in its last three games in all competitions. With RSL beating Chicago this afternoon, Columbus will surely want to follow suit to stay in the race for the Supporters’ Shield.

I’ve posted the lineups below. What are you looking forward to in this one?

Sounders FC starting lineup: GK Kasey Keller, D Zach Scott, D Jeff Parke, D Patrick Ianni, D Leo Gonzalez, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Nathan Sturgis, M Steve Zakuani, M Sanna Nyassi, F Fredy Montero, F Blaise Nkufo

Sounders FC reserves: GK Terry Boss, D Tyson Wahl, D Tyrone Marshall, M Mike Seamon, M Alvaro Fernandez, M/F Roger Levesque, F Nate Jaqua

Columbus Crew starting lineup: GK William Hesmer, D Frankie Hejduk, D Chad Marshall, D Andy Iro, D Danny O’Rourke, M Emmanuel Ekpo, M Kevin Burns, M Brian Carroll, M Eddie Gaven, F Guillermo Barros Schelotto, F Steven Lenhart

Columbus Crew reserves: GK Andy Gruenebaum, D Eric Brunner, D Shaun Francis, M Adam Moffat, F Jason Garey, F Andres Mendoza, F Emilio Renteria
