If two center defenders are out, Miller would be moved to central defense to pair with the healthy and Borrajo would play on the flank. At least that's my understanding of how this would work.

We only have 20 or 21 players signed. It's clear we are going to sign a half dozen more players by the start of the sign. Definitely going to be a couple forward (Arteaga / Chirgadze / Angulo?) and a midfielder (Barklage), but that still means someone we don't know will be signed. Maybe two guys.

I also think Agudelo could see some time on the wing. Cooper potentially as well... though I think it's possible we see a Cooper / Henry up top to start the season. Cooper and Richards seem to have some good chemistry going this preseason. And Henry is a guaranteed starter.

Back to the original discussion, I think Meara gets the start opening day. Just a general sense I get from the different quotes and stories surrounding this team. And if he is a Pickens level talent, that would be a nice find at 30 or so in the draft. Fringe national team player. Top 6 goalkeeper in MLS and has been near the top of the GAA charts the last few seasons.

Let's assume a worst case scenario, all the guys who are injury prone are out. Who's left?

---Cooper-------------------Agudelo---
-Lindpere-Marquez-Palsson-Richards-
-Miller----Keel----Holgersson----Solli-
--------------Meara/Vuolo--------------

Huh?

"In between soccer games this weekend, I played 36 holes of golf with my dad. Playing golf, I realized, is a bit like watching the Red Bulls play. Both can have the tendency to feel like self-inflicted torture. You wonder why you do it at all. But when it’s over, you can’t wait to do it again. To New England we go, then." - Andrew Keh

Maybe I didn't consider him as injury prone as Henry, Rodgers, and Tainio.

"It's still three or four weeks to the first league game," assistant coach Jan Halvor Halvorsen said at Montclair State University on Friday. "It is not settled yet with the goalie situation. The young ones, both have done quite well in the camp, the first camp. The first goalkeeping situation is not yet 100 percent settled yet. We'll see what will happen."

:huh: Aren't we required to have three keepers on the roster so isn't it mandatory that we pick someone else up? (old European or not)

I find it hard to believe, with all management has riding on this season, that they'd start the year without a veteran goalkeeper, at least in a backup role. It's too important a position.

Then again, maybe Soler doesn't feel he's under any pressure to win this year.

Gotta love the "can't-win" attitude on these boards. Half the people bashing them for not getting a proven keeper, the other half accusing them of blocking young Americand from getting a chance....

The presence of the two young trialist GKs in Arizona (Burse and Tuttle) pretty much clinches that we're going into the season without the veteran GK. Gotta figure that they're trying to fill the 3rd GK slot.

Personally I'm OK with that, as long as they choose one of Vuolo and Meara and play him long enough to have a chance to build some confidence (8-10 games without benching even if the chosen #1 makes a few mistakes). If he still sucks go to the other guy, and if that one sucks you're most of the way to June and you grab someone off another league's chopping block. NOT a DP though.

Maybe Meara and Vuolo are going to surprise everybody. All the great goalkeepers have to start somewhere as a rookie at some time.

By half, obviously I meant one guy, and maybe the 4 others who voted "no, its terrible." Don't get all math nit-picky on me.
