MLS Regular Season
Welcome Rapids Fans:
This evening we play our third match in the space of a week, and I know that the players are determined to build on last Saturday's battling 1-0 home win over Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
Clint Irwin wasn't pleased after the Rapids fell to Seattle. However, Irwin knows that the Rapids are ready to bounce back as he and the rest of the squad are out to get a victory.
It has been a busy week of differing emotions for Colorado Rapids. Victory over Vancouver last weekend ended a long run without a home win. Relief was palpable. In midweek, a moment of brilliance saw Seattle squeeze out victory on their tricky turf. Frustration was obvious.
In what has been a busy week for the Colorado Rapids, the team returns home this Saturday to take on Portland Timbers, kickoff 7:00 p.m (TICKETS).
Colorado Rapids Forward, Kevin Doyle (#9)
On his debut start...
It was nice obviously to start but you want to win or draw the game or get something from it and we didn’t so you don’t enjoy it when that's the case.
On the difference playing in Seattle compared to Colorado altitude and then artificial turf:
Colorado Rapids finally lost their unbeaten record on the road when they went down 1-0 at Seattle on Wednesday.
Before kickoff, Pablo Mastroeni’s side were the only MLS side yet to taste defeat away from home, having got at least a point at Philadelphia, Houston, Dallas, New York and LA Galaxy so far this term.
Kevin Doyle found his onto the pitch on Saturday against Vancouver, will he start in Seattle?
The Irish superstar talked about how pleased he was to find the pitch against the Whitecaps and is adjusting well to the Altitude. Altitude won't be an issue when the team travels to Seattle to take on the Sounders. With the additions of Doyle and Luis Solignac, the Rapids have stated numerous times that they now have all of the pieces to compete with anyone in the league. They will look to prove that in the Emerald City on Wednesday night.
James Riley talks about how everything in life just seems to feel better after Saturday's win, but he knows the Rapids have a tall task ahead of them in the Seattle Sounders.

On his debut with the Rapids…
I feel great. I think the team had a really good effort. We deserved the three points, so I am really happy.
