The 11 which took to the field for the Colorado Rapids' most recent home game, a 0-0 draw against Chicago Fire, raised a few eyebrows. Eight changes were made to the side which had 73 hours earlier overwhelmed Houston Dynamo 3-0 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.

Rapids legend and VP of Soccer Operations, Paul Bravo, explains the reasons behind the wholesale changes in an extended interview, recorded exclusively for the Rapids Podcast. In it he shares the fans' frustrations, but also opens up about how the club is being led by data collated through sports science. A complete version of the interview can be heard by clicking here.
