With most of the soccer world’s attention rightfully directed at the World Cup, MLS fans prepare for their given team’s return to action this week.

The Revolution will meet the arch rival Chicago Fire at Gillette Stadium Sunday night in its first match back from the World Cup break. In MLS play, the Revs pulled into the break 40% of the way through the season with an ugly 3-7-2 (11 points) record and were completely dreadful in an ugly 3-0 loss to the Seattle Sounders back on June 5. Since, the Revs also lost 3-0 in exhibition against Cruzeiro.

Last words (thankfully) from the New England-Seattle laugher.

  • Joseph Niouky was shown his fifth caution of the season in the second half last night and will be suspended for a match.

Tonight marks — aside from Cinco de Mayo — the finale of the Revolution’s three game homestand and the club’s second of eight matches in the month of May.  The Revolution will again be without captain Shalrie Joseph, and will be missing some of the depth that could conceivably be helping in his void as well.  Some thoughts with the match set to start at 7:30 at Gillette Stadium:

-With Joseph Niouky suspended due to the red card he drew on Saturday night against FC Dallas, Mike Videira would have been a solid guy to play in his spot (some observers would argue that he’d be a better fit regardless, but I digress).  Videira, though, will not participate in tonight’s match either; he is listed as out with an ankle injury.  I’m expecting that we’ll see Marko Perovic slide over to that spot instead, and that Chris Tierney will take back the left wing spot he filled earlier in the season.  Then again, with Kevin Alston questionable due to an illness, we may see coach Steve Nicol go with something in the 3-5-2 vein.  “We have no choice,” Nicol told MLSsoccer.com‘s Kyle McCarthy. “We’ve got to be creative. We’ll just sort ourselves out.”
