If history has proven anything, it's that Bradley works better on his own up there.
Anyway, we have to freaking score goals. It hasn't been good enough. Either people are blowing passes, or guys aren't finishing chances.
Stay with the 4-2-3-1 because the team is just better in it. Have said the same damn thing forever now and Marsch wasted the start of this year and the start of last year on the 4-2-2-2. We start slow in that formation because it just sucks with this group of guys(or even perhaps this league) and then confidence becomes an issue where we have to build that up again.
And a problem is that I think Gulbrandsen is one of our more dangerous players, but I think he's a 9, just like BWP. Not the best passer to make it work on the wings. Jesse just messed up committing so much towards the 4-2-2-2.
Anyway, I roll out the same group but hopefully with Lade back.

Etienne should be the first sub off the bench. His speed is his biggest (only?) asset and that will stand out even more against defenders who have already been on the pitch for an hour. Start Muyl or Gulbrandsen on the wing.
