    How many goals does she need give up before staff realizes this?

    If Boston coach cannot see this on film than he should be fired.

    This is about as dumb as putting Stephanie Ochs at center back.

    She played center back alongside Cat Whitehill in the WPSL Elite, hence putting her there now.
    It was two games with her at center back, that's not an eternity.
    Tom Durkin, in interviews last night after the game, said that they would be changing up the back line.
    Who would you suggest putting next to Whitehill as the other CB? With this roster, it's not an easy question. Courtney Jones was absolutely the right pick to start with.

    I believe that college players who did not enter the draft can't be signed. Otherwise I would recommend Boston take a hard look at Olivia Zitoli, a center back from Walpole, MA, who was the NSCAA Division III National Player of the Year in 2013.

    She led William Smith to the 2013 NCAA Championship with 6 shutouts in 6 NCAA tournament games. I watched her play four years for William Smith - she's the real deal in any Division.

    Yeah, not until a year after the draft.

    I think they need to create a special position for Courtney Jones at this point.
    She's not a center back.

    Move her to rover back.
    She can then use her shoulders to her advantage, and her dad's gene pool will come in handy more.
    I honestly think she could cut it in LFL.
