Jimmy and the All Stars

Tonight Jimmy Conrad and the rest of the MLS all stars take on West Ham United in this years All Star game. Conrad is the Wizards lone representative on Steve Nicol's team. Being one of only 5 defenders, and with Michael Parkhurst likely not playing due to his Olympic commitments, chances seem high that Conrad will not only play, but likely play the full 90 against the Hammers tonight at BMO Field.

So far the all stars are undefeated in these games against foreign opposition in the all star game. Will that continue this year? One would hope so, but we will have to wait and see.

Not going to do a full line up for the all star game tonight, but I'd guess we'll see Nicol's traditional 3-5-2 with Conrad anchoring the middle of it.

PREDICTION - West Ham is not the team to lose your all star game streak too.

MLS - 1 (Conrad)
WHU - 0
