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. Niouky’s already missed one game after having been shown a red against FC Dallas earlier this season. The first-year midfielder will not dress at home against the Chicago Fire on June 27. With his five yellow cards, Niouky is tied with Toronto FC’s Martin Saric for the most in the league (though Niouky’s done it in one less contest). (more…)

Sainey and Sanna Nyassi would love to see the field against one another.

They grew up under the same roof in Gambia and shared the field as teammates playing for Gambia’s Port Authority and their home nation’s youth and senior national clubs. But for the first time Saturday, the Nyassi twins – Sainey and Sanna – may see the field together on opposite ends.

In 2009, Sanna’s first season playing in MLS, Sainey claimed bragging rights as the Revolution went 2-0 against his brother’s Seattle Sounders FC. However, the twins did not set foot on the field at the same time during either match. In New England’s trip to Seattle, Sainey came off the field two minutes before Sanna’s 69th minute substitution. When Seattle came to New England, Sanna did not travel with his club.

The Revolution will head into the World Cup break following this Saturday night’s match against Seattle Sounders FC. The 2009 expansion club has had trouble scoring this season, but they’ve remained somewhat competitive  in front of keeper and captain Kasey Keller. Seattle enters the match at 3-5-3, good for 12 points, only four of which have come in the last six matches. That places them at sixth in the Western Conference. New England by comparison sits at 3-6-2 (11 points), good for fourth in the east.

That the Revs, with a worse record, sit far more comfortably in their division than does Seattle in its own is reflected in the results of each club. There’s little question which conference is stronger this season, and both Seattle and New England are winless in 2010 against the West, having collected all of their victories against Eastern Conference foes.
