Not sure how to read that lineup. Looks close to what could be first choice with a few exceptions, maybe more of a diamond with Valot and CCJ as the 8s and Davis as the 6 (not a fan)

Edwards having visa issues is going to be a problem. Duncan doesnt provide the width and crossing ability that Struber usually requires from his outside backs.

Fábio is going to have ~2 weeks of training before the first match.


But we have great depth and that was the highlight of the off season...right?

"Great depth" is an MLS synonym for "a bunch of dudes who suck equally."

Tampa beat Inter Miami 1-0 yesterday so our next friendlies wont be easy either. 

 

That said i'm not going to read much into results for a game where i dont even know who played where and for how long.  But hopefully we get to watch more of the game next week so we can see for ourselves.

I'm not reading too far into the final scoreline of a 60 min scrimmage with 6 subs and no video. Goals are nice, but the real objective is to get players to play the system ... a 5-0 win is meaningless if the players didn't learn or utilize the patterns.

Luckily they still had another match scheduled for the 3rd vs. TB Rowdies. If they play that one and the one on April 10th vs. DC at RBA theyll have 3 matches under their belts before 4/17. Not great

A better question is: are they playing any preseason games at all? Like, will the game against Tampa Bay today take place?
