OTFATT 2006: Update #5
4/11 (85 players remaining)
4/24 (66 players remaining)
5/7 (46 players remaining)
5/26 (28 players remaining)
Jonathan Bornstein was subbed off in the last minute in the Chivas victory yesterday, making the Goats the third team to be completely eliminated. Since the last update, 10 more players have missed time, leaving us with only 18 guys who have played every minute of every MLS game so far.
Bornstein's teammate Sacha Kljestan dropped out as well which means that there are no more rookies. Also, suprisingly there are only 4 goalkeepers left. There's also more midfielders than defenders, which leads me to believe that it won't be long till more of these guys drop off. Taylor Twellman is the last forward. I'm sure New England's injury problems have something to do with 4 of the 18 being Revs players.
Kyle Beckerman and Ugo Ihemelu are one yellow away from a suspension.
