Game 4: Union at Red Bull New York

The Red Bulls lead Major League Soccer with an average of 15.5 fouls committed per game. Just a little something to think about.

Game 4: Union at Red Bull New York


Time: 4:00 p.m. EDT
Where: Red Bull Arena
TV: WPVI-6.2 (J.P. Dellacamera and Kyle Martino) and Telefutura (Jorge Perez Navarro, Diego Balado and Iván Kasanzew)

As I mentioned earlier in the week, I'm at the Penn Relays for most of today. Usain Bolt runs in the USA vs. the World 4x100-meter relay at 2:50 p.m. After that race, I'll be on the first train to Newark that I can get on. I hope to be at Red Bull Arena at around 4:30. As soon as I get to press row, I'll launch the chat. So stay tuned.

If you're looking for the TV broadcast, here's how to find it. On Comcast, WPVI 6.2 in high definition is channel 245. The standard definition feed is channel 246. On Verizon FiOS, the high definition feed is channel 466 and the standard definition feed is channel 465. The channel is not available at all on satellite distribution.

Telefutura (standard definition only) is available on satellite distribution: DirecTV channel 28 and Dish Network channel 271. On Comcast, it's channel 251. On FiOS, it's channel 26. Over the air it's channel 65.2.

There's only one name on the Union's injury report: Stefani Miglioranzi has an "upper leg strain."

Here's New York's injury report:


D Chris Albright (knee surgery recovery)
D Kevin Goldthwaite (adductor surgery recovery)
M Giorgi Chirgadze (hip surgery)


D Jeremy Hall (left ankle sprain)
M Carl Robinson (right knee sprain)

Albright, as many of you know, is a Philadelphia native and Penn Charter alum.

The Union's probable starters are listed in a 4-2-3-1 formation:

Goalkeeper: Chris Seitz
Defenders: Jordan Harvey, Michael Orozco, Shavar Thomas, Cristian Arrieta
Midfielders: Roger Torres, Stefani Miglioranzi; Danny Mwanga, Fred, Sebastien Le Toux
Forward: Alejandro Moreno

New York's probable starters are listed in a 4-4-2 formation:

Goalkeeper: Bouna Coundoul
Defenders: Roy Miller, Tim Ream Mike Petke, Jeremy Hall
Midfielders: Sinisa Ubiparipovic, Joel Lindpere, Seth Stammler, Dane Richards
Forwards: Juan Pablo Angel, Salou Ibrahim

The referee will be Kevin Stott, the linesmen will be Kermit Quisenberry and Peter Balciunas, and the fourth official will be Mark Geiger.

Of note, the Red Bulls lead Major League Soccer in fouls committed with a total of 62 over four games. That's an average of 15.50 per game. The Union have committed 29 over three games, an average of 9.67 per game.

Just a little something to think about.

I'll talk to you all later this afternoon.
