What's the prognosis on Namoff? I thought I read that his operation was for a double hernia, but he was expected back in four weeks. Can this be? In my mind he is our best defender, and one of our most versatile players. Presuming that our new Argie will start somewhere on the back line (he's not just a center back) and the left back position is Wilson's to lose, it looks as if Bryan would have to beat out Prideaux, Stokes, and possibly Boswell for right back. In top form, I think he could do that, but since the defense hasn't been as big a problem as our lack of offensive punch I wouldn't mind seeing him revert to the midfield, because he combines a real flair for going forward into the offensive third along with his impressive defensive skills. In the last month or two of the season I sure want him on the field, along with Quaranta, Guppy, Simms, Moreno, and perhaps Olsen, to make sure we make the playoffs.
