Week 11 - The Saints Come Marching In

Original BSL Member Gateway United Presents Big Test for Alamo City

It's a Founder's Cup clash that has always produced fireworks.  For whatever reason, when Gateway is on the field with Alamo City the scoreboard is in trouble.  With the way the schedule has fallen for their first match up of the 2013 season, things could really get out of hand.  Everything is set up for an offense display that very well could see team and league records fall.  What's important though, is that the Battle continue to take home the points.  "We rebounded nicely last week from our first loss," stated Thierry Henry.  "However, we're still facing a couple of issues with a few of the guys.  So far the management has made moves to keep us on top of things.  We'll need that to continue this week.  Gateway United is a strong club and they always play us well.  We need to go out and take the match to them."

Without coming out and saying what the issues were, Henry alluded to a few of the guys having lingering issues.  Specifically he's talking about Oba, Kleberson, and himself.  Despite the schedule looking very favorable to Alamo City this week, two of the biggest weapons might not get to take advantage.  Oba is looking doubtful for the first of Seattle's two matches this week, and Henry hasn't ever played when NYRB visits NE.  Kleberson is still wallowing in no-man's land since arriving as a DP in Philadelphia even though the very spot he fills has underperformed all season.  The club though, is used to adversity and has always attempted to meet it head on. This week will be no different.
