    Here is my selection of the all-time best Charge XI. I only selected players who have been here for more than one season (that's why Zhao Lihong is not on this list):

    GK: Melissa Moore

    D: Jenny Benson - Erica Iverson - Jennifer Tietjen-Prozzo - Heather Mitts

    DM: Stacy Tullock

    M: Liu Ailing, Lorrie Fair

    AM: Kelly Smith

    F: Marinette Pichon - Mandy Clemens

    Let's stay healthy and have a great 2004 (please!).

    Tough to pick a top 11 with players here more than 1 year in a three year league...... Here is mine based on talent only


    Mitts Fitchen Teitjen Benson

    Lihong Tullock Ailing Smith

    Pichon Scasna

    Bench: Fair, Iverson, Clemens, Solo

    Pavlina Scasna is exceptionally gifted, but I don't know if she's played enough yet to make a top 11...

    she's got the spin move which is almost as quirky as Blanco's ball hop move...

    she did it once against Atlanta, then twice against Dc...

    it seems she always does it when two defenders are on her, and she has no place to go

    I am amazed at how she can handle the ball. Ive watched her warmup/goof off at the half the past 3-4 games, and some of the stuff she does with the ball is amazing. At one point during the game yesterday she looked like she overran the ball, but then she hit it with her heel and it flipped over her foot in stride to continue her run down the field.

    I hope we get to see a full season of her talents next year with Smith and Pichon up top!!!

    if you watch scasna juggle, she's probably the best control I've seen a woman have ....

    it's that in tight control, which most american players don't have...

    and that where the USA differs from many other places....

    looking forward, as my gut says the Charge will be here in 2004:

    1) does Zhao return...Hoffmann had a one year contract, which probably means Zhao is option A...

    2) cat reddick talent available in the draft, and if she's drafted, charge could go 3-5-2...

    3) getting healthy up top....scasna and pichon and smith and arrington....basically we had one and everyone of them were hurt for at least 2 matches...that's where the charge suffered most...any team lose their scorers, it's tough to win...
