USOC: Olsen, DC set for "guessing game" vs. Revs

DC set for guessing game

WASHINGTON – D.C. United are unsure of what type of opponent they'll face in Tuesday night’s US Open Cup play-in clash with the New England Revolution.
Scouting for such games is always tricky.

Different coaches prepare for play-in matches in different ways, so it’s hard to know whether the Revolution will send out a team of reserves or starters — or a mixture of the two.

“It’s a little different [than regular season games] in the sense that you can’t prepare too much,” head coach Ben Olsen said. “You can’t really cut up film because it’s a guessing game.”

The Power Rankings committee faced some real issues this week, but not quite as big as the ones facing the Seattle Sounders and FC Dallas. The question for both these teams becomes how they'll do without their injured stars, and the PR committee, for one, will give them the benefit of the doubt until they prove otherwise. Got an issue?

Schedule woes for DC

WASHINGTON – After a slow and steady start to the 2011 season, it’s all hands on deck for D.C. United over the next two weeks.

Starting Tuesday with a US Open Cup play-in game against New England, DC have four games in 13 days, and will look to manage minutes to keep players healthy and get the maximum results possible.

Head Coach Ben Olsen stressed that closely managing time isn’t just being done because of the busy two-week schedule.
