It's time for the game! Rumors are swirling about a possible trade with the Philadelphia Union, but we'll have more info once we get a better sense about the veracity of said rumors. In the meantime, the current Chivas USA squad are up at Buck Shaw Stadium and will play the San Jose Earthquakes (4 pm PDT, Galavision). Each club is coming off a loss, but Chivas are near the bottom of the Western Conference, while the Quakes are near the top of the Conference table. Who will emerge with a result? We'll find out soon enough.

If you missed it, take a look at the match preview from yesterday.

I'll be here providing basic commentary and play-by-play details. Please comment on the match with me! A little conversation isn't a bad thing.

Time for the lineups:

Chivas USA starting XI: Dan Kennedy; Ante Jazic, Heath Pearce, John Valencia, James Riley; Peter Vagenas, Nick LaBrocca, Miller Bolanos, Alejandro Moreno, Laurent Courtois, Jose Correa
