Make me come alive, come on turn me on.
Touch me, save my life, come on and turn me on.
I'm too young to die, come on and turn me on.
Turn me on, turn me on, turn me on, turn me on...

- "Turn Me On", David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj

Well, once again, we're at the start of something...whatever it is, will depend on what happens at BMO Field today. WIll Wednesday's road point in Houston be the touch to salvage some sort of pride for TFC's supporters, or will the season skip on its merry way to dying young again? It's a question that only the players themselves can answer -- and with Matt Reis and the New England Revolution in this way, that spark may be elusive.

The Revs are coming off a scoreless draw with the Columbus Crew earlier in the week, but are having struggles on the road. They're currently sitting seventh in the East, and at last report will be doing without Shalrie Joseph -- which may make gaining their first-ever win at BMO all that much harder, but with weapons like Benny Feilhaber and Lee Nguyen available, it may not be out of the realm of possibility. Dicoy WIlliams may be available, which to the TFC backline, is like a heaven sent message.

For your pre-match reading pleasure, we have James' Know Your Enemy breakdown (so good, that Paul Mariner probably reads it) in parts one and two. There's Duncan's chat with Steve Stoehr with our sister blog The Bent Musket, as well as a late preview of the game just snuck in under the wire. And as always -- you can fancy yourself as a prognosticator in the latest round of our infamous Are You Smarter? game.

So join us here for pre-game chatter and team news once it hits twitter and France/Spain is done, and then follow along for further updates of whatever TFC craziness we get today.

Come On You Reds.
