    It would be interesting to see some predictions of starting line-ups for the coming season.





    (Mods, I hope this is in the right section etc)

    Rapids is a pure guess right now, but I'll throw one out there, based on our current roster:

    Castrillon - Buddle - Harris​
    Thomas - Rivero - Cascio​
    Calderon - Moor - Wynne - Mullan​
    Pickens​

    Now there are ruors that we've traded Avila's rights for LaBrocca's rights, and I can see LaBrocca taking Cascio's position between Thomas and Rivero. Castrillon is on the trading block, so Cascio could move up there.

    I thought Cascio was always a winger? Not a CM?

    In the scenario where he starts he'd be a winger with Thomas and Rivero handling the middle duties. Like I said, its just a guess based on who Pareja seems to like.

    With no Beckham replacement yet, the Galaxy could start the season:

    -----------Keane----Donovan
    Magee------------------------------Clark
    ----------Juninho------Sarvas
    Dunivant--AJDLG--Gonzalez--Franklin
    ----------------Cudicini

    If healthy, all of those are a lock except Clark. Zardes or Villareal could force their way into that lineup and squeeze Clark off the field...

    Of course, a Lampard or Kaka would also slide him to the bench...

    Yeah that seems about right, but I kind of feel that Zardes or Villareal have a better shot at starting. And I base that on absolutely nothing :D

    I expect San Jose will look much the same to start 2013 as they did in 2012...

    -----------Gordon ----- Wondolowski

    Salinas ------ Cronin ------ Baca ------ Chavez

    Morrow - Bernardez - Hernandez - Beitashour

    --------------------Busch

    Does Casey really have the speed/guile to play out wide though?

    Dynamo guess
    Same as MLS Final except Omar for Carr
    IF 4-3-3.. Bump OBG to FW

    Cummings - Bruin
    Davis - Moffat - Clark - OBG
    Ashe - Taylor - Boswell - Sarkodie
    Hall




    That's if Cummings is ready to start

    Where does that leave McInerney? Out wide? Bench?

    Hackworth seems set on having a 4-3-3, so likely out wide.

    Sporting Kansas City, when everyone is healthy and no one is away on national team duty:

    Convey - Bieler - Kamara​
    Feilhaber - Nagamura - Zusi​
    Sinovic - Besler - Collin - Myers​
    Nielsen​
    Bench: Sapong, Peterson, Joseph, Rosell, Gardner, Opara, Kronberg​
    U24 squad, even if none of the supplemental draft picks sign:​
    Saad - Bunbury - Dwyer​
    Lopez - Rosell - Joseph​
    Miller - Opara - Songo'o - Ellis​
    Kempin​

    Opara and Miller are the only ones who have already turned 23; Bunbury will do so next month, and Opara will turn 24. Sapong turned 24 at the end of December.

    I don't see it. With us keeping Giles around, I think Dom gives him a chance to start the season:

    Traditional Dynamo 4-4-2

    Cummings--Bruin
    ---Barnes
    Davis----OBG
    --Clark
    Ashe--Taylor--Boswell--Sarkodie
    Hall

    4-3-3

    Cummings--Bruin--OBG
    Davis--Barnes
    --Clark
    Ashe--Taylor--Boswell--Sarkodie
    Hall

    I'm with Naranja on this one...or maybe that's just what I WANT to see, and we'll actually see what is expected (Levy2k6's post).

    I hardly rate Moffat but Dom seems to love the guy.

    Salt Lake is a little crazy. Right now, if everyone's healthy, it'd be something like

    ----------Saborio----??????-----------
    ---------------Morales-----------------
    ------Grabavoy----Viana/Velasquez/Martinez
    -------------Beckerman----------------
    Wingert--Borchers--Schuler--Beltran
    --------------Rimand0-----------------

    Findley likely isn't a starter, so we're still waiting to see who the #2 striker will be.

    The middle of the diamond is up in the air. Grabavoy probably starts, and then there are a bunch of options for who lines up on the other side.

    Borchers is out for 3 months, and Kwame Watson-Siriboe will replace him. Wingert is hurt, too; Mansally is his likely replacement.

    I might have people on the wrong side of the field. I can't remember who's left/right footed for some reason.

    Dunno.. I like the idea floated by Ajas of:

    -----------EJ-------------------------
    ----------------------Rosales---------
    Zakuani----------------------Martinez
    -------------Alonso/Tiffert-------------
    Gonzalez--Hurtado/Ianni--Johansson
    ---------------Gspurning---------------

    As was the case throughout most of 2012, Steven Lenhart will likely start rather than Alan Gordon.

    Smith/Mapp -------- Felipe -------- Pisanu

    -------------------Bernier - Warner

    Iapichino/Brovsky - Nesta - Ferrari - Camara

    ---------------------------Perkins

    Wonder what happens if Rivas is healthy. That whole left side is unclear.

    You actually expect Sigi Schmid to having a starting lineup that doesn't include Brad Evans?

    Yeah, probably. Wishful thinking I guess, because I think Gordon is a better target for the team to play off of. His age and injury issues probably keep him from being a consistent starter though.

    Dawkins still isn't back with the team. If he was, then yeah, he'd probably start at LM.
