    In Yestedays game Ted Chronopoulous gave away the ball so many times that it appeared that he was playing for DC. Nelson Akwari was much more composed on the ball and played several nice passes upfield. If we could unload the likes of Ramos(retirement) Balboa & Ted Chronopolous we could be well under the salary cap for next season. Akwari,Davis, Moore are all quality young players. In a perfect world I would like to see Andy Williams and Rodrigo Faria get green cards, this way we could bring in a foreign defender(Costacurta?) and a midfielder able to hold the ball (Effenberg?)

    I second the motion.

    Jolley - Akwari - Petke - Ziadie/Addo

    people have been complaining about Ziadie but Chronosjfkjsdfsdjflous has been a bigger problem.

    Liked what I saw of Akwari also. In his prior experience was he usually a left or right defender?

    Ted Chronopolous had a bad game. He is also seems to have a speed problem as in he is not fast defending against faster.

    Anyway you can get Akwari in the lineup makes our team better. I'd suggest Chronopoulous put on the bench because Ziade is younger and has more potential.

    Akwari should become a staple in the Metros D for years to come. He needs the experience in big games now to be ready for bigger games down the road.

    Is that what they call the far end of the bench now?

    I lost all faith in Chrono several games ago. He needs serious bench time and I can't really see him returning next season if we get a good coach who can evaluate talent.

    Let Akwari start, he looks to be an improvement.

    Start Akwari and go with a three man defense of Akwari, Jolly, Petke with Paulle and Moore in front of them

    Chrono was caught up top a couple of times yesterday, one time leaving Faria to guard Olsen on a counterattack. But I'm not sure if that's not really OZ's fault for telling him to get into the attack.

    "Chrono was caught up top a couple of times yesterday,"

    Someone has to take his place in the back when he goes up. If you don't get the ball a back can't just wait up top he has to come back.

    The worst doing that in this game was Jolley. No immediate touch he waits up there that is not good.

    Metros web site has Chronopoulos as questionable with a groin problem for the road match in Los Angeles. So if Teddy boy can't go on Saturday I say look for either Addo or Akwari to get the chance to fill in his spot.
