    Re: Wizards Blog Updates


    I am a little concerned about starting a rookie (Marquess) at wing back although I fully understand we need to develop our young talent. Every time we start one of the rookies (Leathers, Myers) at wing back we seem to get scored on from that side as someone finds a weakness or there is a communication issue between them and the center backs. That's why Jack moved back to the backline isn't it?

    Speaking of Myers and Leathers, has Marquess passed up both of these guys in practice to earn a starting spot?

    Perhaps we are just showcasing him as trade bait for a forward ;)

    Other than that our lineup looks intriguing.

    I think it's more that both Leathers and Myers are more fit for the right side of defense.

    Coach talked a bit about that in the press conference. He said that Matt was a true left foot player. Myers and Leathers could play there but at the moment, Marquess was the better choice there.

    Some stats from today's game

    There are some pretty good milestones from the match this week, Zavagnin playing his 300th competitive game with an MLS team, Conrad topping 15,000 minutes for the Wizards in competitive matches, etc.

    Re: Wizards Blog Updates

    Wolff - Thompson
    Lopez - Jewsbury - Arnaud - Gomez
    Harrington - Wahl - Conrad - Leathers
    Hartman

    vs.

    Pore - Trujillo
    Espinoza - Morsink - Zavagnin - Marinelli
    Watson - Souter - McKenzie - Myers
    Kronberg

    Gomez wide and Arnaud in the middle? That's different. I mean, we do need a better midfield but not sure if that should be Davy and Jack together. I don't know.

    Re: Wizards Blog Updates

    I would be shocked if Lopez is not starting, especially in a big "event" like this one with the original DP himself out there. We are playing against Hartman's former back-up's back-up this weekend.....we need all our offensive weapons out there to pelt him and their weak D non stop.

    My blog isn't "Wizards related," but they do show up in there from time to time. I'm certain that I will post after the "Beckham affair," so if anyone wants to read some mindless chatter, my blog is here.
