Davis for RZA I'd say as they seem to play more together and better but thats just off the top of my head so clearly written in stone

(although I do have to say Sean seems to be missing a little bit of his game this year)


Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

I concur with the others.  Sub Rzat for Davis and BWP for White and that is pretty much as good as it is going to get.

So is this the gameday 18 if everyone's available and healthy?

Omir for Buck on the bench maybe for even more attacking subs but yeah, not much else out there.

Think Buck is going to be starting over Murillo quite a bit here... Last game made that possibility clear.  Murillo is clearly more talented but he's just been so bad defensively this year.

 

 

THink this is what we'll see ultimately.

 

 

---------White

Royer-Kaku-Sims

---CCJ--Davis

Taxi Long Parker Buck

 

Omir, Muyl, and BWP the notable subs.

 

Perhaps most notable is that unless something significantly changes Connor Lade and BWP's careers on this team are coming to an end after this year.

What happened to Duncan? Is he injured or something?

Think he's fine.  Armas clearly not a fan.  He wasn't great earlier this year either but I really wish they didn't flip him back and forth between the left and right so often.

How so? 

 

--------BWP or White
------Royer--------Sims

--------Kaku Casseres

Taxi Tarek Long Parker Buck

-------------Robles

 

would that be enough cover centrally? unless you put Kaku at LW, have Royer come off the bench?

Imo that team is getting torched...

 

White

Royer--Kaku--Sims

Davis--Casseres-Rza

Taxi--Long--Parker

Robles

 

In fact this team is probably gonna get torched too. I don't even know at this point

RZA and Davis and WIng back, alright.

If they dont trust Murillo def just play the 3331.

BWP
Royer - Kaku - Sims
Taxi - CCJ - Murillo
Tarek - Long - Parker
Robles

That formation hides the weaknesses of each player better and gets Tarek whos been better than Davis on the pitch.

It only has 1 CM but arent we like last at passing % anyways plus weve played this formation before and it looks crazy but it works.

if they go 3-3-3-1 or 5-2-3 or whatever, it is quite possible for him to be the wingback opposite Taxi. just have no idea how they'd configure the rest of the XI.
