With the international break this weekend there are two things of which we can be certain: Ross County will not be playing a match and MLS will continue to ignore international breaks and offer supporters a full slate of matches.
The first of these will give Derek Adams ample time to devise a game plan for the match on March 30 against Kilmarnock and to get the club back to winning ways after the controversial defeat to derby rivals Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
The second means that I will be at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro for the New England Revolution’s home opener. The 1-0-1 Revolution will be taking on Sporting Kansas City and I will be sitting in the away section with KCGunner (and, I believe, his lovely wife!) as I did last season when the two clubs met in Foxboro. Why the away section, you may ask? Let’s just say that there is at least one member of the official SKC supporter’s club whose registered name is “NewEnglandRevolutionFan.” What can I say, a free ticket is a free ticket!
The bonus match of this weekend’s international break is that Scotland will be in action against Wales today. Ostensibly this is a World Cup qualification match, but, if we’re honest, nobody on either side of the ball today will be in Brazil in 2014 unless they are on holiday. Still, there has been plenty of not-so-good-natured back and forth between representatives of both sides so this could be an interesting match on a lot of levels.
Anyway…I may have a chance to comment on the Scotland – Wales match tonight, but the wrap-up of the Revolution – SKC match will have to wait until Sunday afternoon- see you then!
