We have drawn the winner of the Jersey Express and NYRB II. I am rooting for the Jersey Express because I don't think true II/B teams should be allowed in the US Open Cup. I believe it would be better to see more PDL/NPSL from distinct areas in there... clubs like the New Orleans Jesters, Rhode Island Reds, FC Buffalo, San Francisco Stompers, Cincinnati Saints, Lehigh Valley United and Baltimore Bohemians bring more to the table and it offers those clubs the opportunity to grow and perhaps attract investors. But enough on that, let's focus on the Cosmos. I think if we match up against Jersey as I hope, we can let our depth players have a great run out. I could see a lineup like this: Holt Mulligan - Gorskie - Caceras - Diosa Moffat - Szetela Guenzatti ———————— Chirishian Flores Mads Bench: Broome, Wright, Raul, Senna, Restrepo, Mendes, Ayoze If the game goes well, then Wright gets a nice run out for a half hour. If it doesn't then Raul, Senna and one of the others comes in to try to rescue us. If we are playing NYRB II, we probably need to mix in a few more starters: Maurer Gorskie - Mendes - Caceras - Ayoze Moffat - Szetela Restrepo ———————— Guenzatti Flores Lucky Bench: Holt, Wright, Raul, Senna, Fernandes, Freeman, Roversio Same idea there, if we are winning at 60 minutes by 2 or more goals, then Wright gets a 30 minute run out. If we need rescuing, Raul and Senna come in. Should be fun either way. We can't take this match for granted. I am hoping that we not only win it, but then are drawn against NYC FC in Yankee Stadium. I would love to go into their house and beat them.
