Rapids Win with Complete Performance

Rapids Win with Complete Performance By BrianJennings True to his hints last week, Colorado Head Coach Pablo Mastroeni went with a couple of changes for Saturday’s match with San Jose and it paid off handsomely in the convincing 3-0 win. By bringing Dominique Badji and Alan Gordon forward together, along with starting normal-winger Marlon Hairston…

Pre-Game: San Jose

by Brendan Wyatt While other leagues around the world are winding down, MLS is just getting started.  The MLS transfer window closed on Monday and it’s no surprise the Rapids made little to no ripples in the ocean that is the transfer market.   This is not new news; excluding Tim Howard, have the Rapids ever…

Serna Ready to Turn the Tide

Serna Ready to Turn the Tide By Brian Jennings Oh, what a difference a year makes for the Rapids?  A complete 180 in fortunes has befallen Colorado in a season that has seen the squad ride the fine line they rode last year only to fall on the downside of many results that were successes…

Post Game: Vancouver

By Brian Jennings Colorado suffered another late-game nail-biter loss Friday night even as the offensive output started showing itself in the form of Shkelzen Gashi, Kevin Doyle, Alan Gordon, and Mohammed Saeid.  However, an unlikely counter-attack springing substitute Break Shea one-on-one with Tim Howard saw his shot get through Howard’s touch and legs for the…

Pregame – Vancouver Whitecaps

by Brendan Wyatt Game on!  It’s as if the Rapids have been distracted by the metaphorical cars that are injuries, suspensions and illnesses.  At least that is what Garth would have told Wayne after a few got past him.  Have no fear, it’s game day once again and time to focus on the Vancouver Whitecaps….

Azira Steady in Revolving Colorado Defensive Midfield.

By Brian Jennings Six games into the 2017 MLS season and neither the Colorado Rapids nor their fans are where they want to be in the standings.  It seems as though everything that could go wrong has so far.  Throw in the departure of 2016 stalwarts Marc Burch and Sam Cronin and it’s honestly no…

Pre-Game: @ MNUFC

by Brendan Wyatt Some of us would call today’s match between the Colorado Rapids and Minnesota United FC a revenge match.  Many of us believe the 2-2 tie should not have happened and when you look at MNUFC’s results since then it leads us to believe there is something missing with our team. To make…

Miller’s Homecoming Also Important to Rapids

By Brian Jennings Colorado defender Eric Miller had to think about it for a second when asked when was the last time he played soccer in Minnesota.  “I haven’t played a game in Minnesota that’s competitive since maybe High School soccer?” Eric told The Voice of C38. Hopefully for Colorado, a large contingent of Rapids…

Powers, Gatt Talk About Moving on After RSL Collapse

By Brian Jennings  In a heartbreaking loss to Rocky Mountain Cup rivals Real Salt Lake Saturday night at home, Colorado was both stunned and gutted at the result.  However, as professionals in a long MLS season, players like Joshua Gatt know they don’t have a lot of time to stew over the mistakes and rue…

Somber Rapids Offer Thoughts on RSL Loss

By Brian Jennings It was an improbable ending to a solid effort for Colorado at home Saturday night against hated rivals Real Salt Lake.  What looked like a circa-2016 Rapids gut check win was swiped late by a stray forearm and a shot out of nowhere sealing the home loss. One bright spot was the…
