So THIS or THIS?

Yep, that's the question.

 

I think your 4-2-2-2 formation is exactly how it would go. 

 

If we go with that 3-3-3-1 formation, could go a few different ways.  I'm not crazy about Rivas on the wing though.  I think he's a forward through and through.  

 

I'll go with this as far as the 3-3-3-1:

 

--------------BWP-------

-----Royer--Kaku--Adams

Taxi---------Felipe-------Murillo

-----Long---Collin---Redding

 

 

And if we venture back to the 4-2-3-1 then this:

 

------------BWP----------

Royer----Kaku----Adams

--------Felipe-Rapinoe

Taxi--Long--Collin--Murillo

All indications are that Rivas is better central, and Kaku almost always has played out wide on the left, which is good, because I think ROyer is OK with that cut in from the right and shoot with his left move.

personally i hate Tyler as an advanced winger.  I would rather have him in the middle as a 6,8,or 10, or put him in wingback ahead of winger.  The skillset of taking on a defender 1 v 1 versus carrying the boy past a center midfielder are two difference skills.  Tyler I think it a lot better at the latter.  

Some will argue Davis did that to some success last year, but whole point of signing guys like Kaku is so we can add that new element into our attack.  If we were playing a slower possession system like last year then Tyler can play winger all he wants.

Disagree given our system. The front 4 has to cover a lot of ground and press like crazy. That's why I like Tyler farther up.  Don't mind him in that wingback position either because it requires a lot of running, but farther up is a good thing with him.  They did it for a bit last year and he looked good.   

 

He's our best player. I want him in positions where he can affect the game the most. He's good at everything. I hope people weren't influenced too much by the USMNT game because they had trash around him and it's a completely different system.  Doesn't apply at all.

Having not watched Rapinoe or Kaku, I cant really guess what sort of lineup well have. But, it looks like there will be a lot of competition for spots, which is great for the team.

Keita is probably the best player Leipzig and he plays as one of the deeper mids. You play Tyler in an advanced role as of necessity, I dont think that exists now with these two new signings, specifically Kaku.

Tyler is a beast yes, but from my understanding of counterpressing in a 4-2-2-2 the box-to-box guy in the middle is as important if not more important than the wingers for a couple reasons.

1) against 3 man midfields, those guys in the middle have to be mobile enough to not get run off the park and have additional responsibility to win the 50/50 ball that comes from the misplaced pass the pressed defender plays

2) when press is broken the CM that joins the initial swarm (which is the box--to-box/Tyler) has to recover quickly so the team can get into shape and minimize how long back four is exposed and outnumbered

3) when winning the ball deep in your half that player is responsible for either playing long range pass to front 4 to start attack or penetrate initial line of defense to start a counter

 

Tyler is better at these three things than he is at dribbling and more importantly we don't have many guys that can do this job as well as Tyler.

5 man midfield with Felipe sitting super deep central partnered up with Adams in the box to box role centrally.

The rest of the line up will work itself out

Are we done with the splashes doe?

Who is Rapinoe, did I miss that splash?

Yes, should have been more clear.  I'm fine with Tyler playing back as one of the 6's in the 4-2-2-2.  Me putting Adams higher up was in the 4-2-3-1 and mainly the 3-3-3-1.  

 

Personally excited.  Kaku is probably in the air now coming here and that Rzatkowksi is better than I think a lot of people are expecting.  He's got skill.  I think we're going to create goals, especially because we can run more now, bigger question will be defensively.  

 

I haven't liked that 4-2-2-2 every time I've seen it form us, but curious what it looks like with our new, much younger group.

Depth charts are fun... roughly:

 

FWD: BWP, Rivas, Keita, Etienne, Moreno, Bonomo, Muyl

 

AM: Royer, Kaku, Rza, Keita, Adams, Davis, Etienne, Mines, Muyl, Bez, Valot

 

CM: Felipe, Adams, Rza, Davis, Casseres

 

FB / WB: Taxi, Murillo, Lade, Muyl

 

CB: Long, Collin, Esco, Redding, Murillo, Lade, Ndam, Politz

 

GK: Robles, Meara, Louro

 

For comparison, this was the Metro team when i started getting into futsoc. Slight improvement.

Already feeling kind of bad for Muyl and Etienne.  Those dudes are going to have a hell of a time getting any minutes.  They aren't even backups.  They are like 3rd options at this point.
