That would allow us to use our three best defenders, to solidify the midfield and to give Di Vaio a striker to pair with. I read that he was better as a complimentary striker than as a lone striker. Plus, it would help us get Wenger on the field.
I also thought we could use Brovski as a winger if needed. That would permit us to switch to a 5-3-2 without any substitution if we are leading. You can always sub Camara or Brovsky for Arnaud if you want a more defensive alignment. And we can bring Mapp or Nyassi for Valentin if we need attack. What do you guys think?

Oh me neither man. I dont have that on my iPod. I just thought it suited the theme of the video which is basically just the beginning
If it was up to me I'd play Nyassi as a starter instead of Ubi or Neagle.
So a 5-4-1 ? I agree it's a depressing lineup..

TBH, I don't really like the 3 at the back lineup... I mean our problem isn't scoring goals, it is conceding them. I agree that Nesta is in a whole different category, but asides Arnaud, Zarek & Brovsky, I can't think of one winger we have on our squad that has a high defensive & offensive workrate.
With what is available for Jesse, 5(or 3, however you want to call it) at the back does not suite us. Here is why: Most of our players are wide man. Nyassi, Ubi, Neagle, Mapp, Arnaud etc, are all players that play on the flanks. Our 3 Central players are Bernier, Warner & Felipe. With 5(or 3) at the back, wide players aren't as necessry since you basically just need two wing backs (In our case Zarek & Arnaud), Jeb being the replacement if one is injured/tired. They will cover almost the whole sidelines. So that means most of our subs would first of all, not fit the tactical scheme, and therefore will be useless. Unless Marsch wants to change formations after only one sub to suite everyone, but that means one of Zarek,Matteo, Nelson or Alessandro would have to get subbed out during the game to move to a more traditional 4 back opening up room for wide players.
Really an interesting problem. Will be nice to see what Marsch does.

Doesnt look like its going to be a sellout tonight... What if it never happen this season Joey will flip out... Mmm no he alrady is flippin at this point we need a major marketing move... But injuries dont help and the refering in last game sure doesnt help the perception of MLS being a poor league... Im inviting tonight some friends and hopefully they enjoy the experience and they repeat with other people... I want this team to impose itself and doing sellouts will surely help the intimidation factor... (The players were ok outside injuries) the crowd (attendance)as been worse than a regular habs pratice lol... So pathetic.

I expect somewhere around 14 000 tonight. I added about 1500 for all the special offers of the last few days.
The stadium is not that far from downtown. Some people are really lazy.
