Wasn't sure where to put this discussion and we might merge it later, but until then I wanted to start something new. We have had a lot of talk recently about Robbie Russell and Andy Williams, and if they will be here next year. We also have wondering about our depth, be it PJ or Arnoux or Warner. So I figured it would be interesting to talk about it, see where ppl think we are. I personally feel Russell might retire after 2011. When it comes to depth, Tony and Robbie have been sharing that right back spot since 2009. So it seems nature for Tony to lineup with Wingert on the other side after Russell steps out. Blake Wagner did decent. Not sure he is much more than extreme depth at this point. Just seems Robbie is hurt a lot, seems a touch slower every year, maybe its time. Its possible. Apparently he is good enough to start for RSL but not good enough for a expansion team since RSL leaves him out for every single one and everyone from Philly, Portland and Vancouver feel they have better options (I doubt that). The rest of the defense seems solid. Olave (30) and Borchers (30) are stalwarts. Schuler and to a lesser extent McKenzie seem to be heir apparents. But will they last expansion drafts and such? Williams I can see staying for one more year then retiring. He seems to have more in the tank, but he is slowing down a bit too and is pretty gassed when doing a full 90. Can Warner replace him? Grabs? Luis? Gonzo? We do seem to have some depth here, so one of these might/could/maybe replace him. I would love Andy to join the staff in 2013 when CJ Brown leaves to coach Chicago (haha). Speaking of Gonzo, does Nelson's loan get extended? I don't think so. I think 2011 will be the last we see of Gonzo. Sorry. Too many injuries. Maybe I am the only one, thats my feel. I am not sure where we are with Sabo (29) and Espindola (26). They are both seasoned but not exactly old, yet. I think Paulo has solidified the 3rd striker position. I think. But do we protect PJ in the next Expansion draft? If not do we lose him to Montreal? Its possible. Is Arnoux ready for the 3/4 spot? I liked what I saw there at the end against Philly. But we have been fooled by one time brilliance before. I am not really going to talk about Rimando. He is young enough, and solid. He is going no where for 2012 for sure. What do you guys think? Am I way off, spot on, completely missing something? Shoot off!
