    Wow that is a really underwhelming list. At best is looks like tryouts for a group to commute to Rochester. But who knows there may but be a player we can use in the batch. I wonder if there will be another bunch of trialists coming in later.

    FWIW, reviewing my twitter timeline I think that I saw that Donnie Smith played as a right back today.

    Well, those highlights were a good woodstove season snack, and a win is a win. Great hustle by Davies, who got that goal all on his own. Looked like our 2014 lineup to start, with Daigo replacing Lee, Dorman replacing Jones, and Hall/Smith slotting in the backline. So far, all the articles say Agudelo up top with Davies taking Rowe's place on the left wing. Can he track back and defend well enough? Bunbury does that on the other side, but I don't know about Charlie. Would love to haver all of them on the pitch at once. Maybe we could play the old 3-5-2, and put Goncalves in Parky's spot!

    Looked like the goal given up was due to a soft backpass from Woodbury that Knighton made a mess of (knocking it back off Woodbury and back into the middle).

    Nice assist by Mulgrew on Okoli's goal. Nice strength and physicality from Davies on his solo effort.

    I thought Hall was already gone at that point, but I'll take your word for it.

    Could Jeremy Hall be our new RB? Is anyone ok with that?

    Interested to see how "prolific" Okoli can be for the rest of the off season.

    Where's Diego?

    When might we hear word on Soare's return (or not return)?

    Hall is speedy and seems to have good tactical awareness, but AFAIK he has only played as a midfielder for the majority of his pro career. Pretty sure that he's comparable to Alston at RB, but Alston has a ton more experience so maybe he's our 5th defender (in off the bench).

    Okoli might be a beast. He has the right skills to succeed in the league (powerful, fast, big) and the Seattle bunch was pretty bummed to lose him from what I've heard.

    Diego is with Uruguay at the U20 Olympic qualifiers. Won't be back till they cut him loose, but he's getting play time so he isn't going to come back rusty.

    It would be great to have Soares come back, defense and attacking finishing were our weak links last year and making sure we have depth and experience is going to be key. Plus, every successful defense in MLS and around the world is made up of three or four guys who have played together for a while and know what to communicate to the rest of the line. I think last year's back four with Bobby in goal (and a full year of starting under his belt) will do enough to keep whatever lead our attacking game can give us.

    Revs allowed 38 goals in 2013 and 49 goals in 2014. The two differences defensively were McCarthy and Reis. As long as they allow fewer than (let's say) 45 goals or so, I think our attack will be able to put enough in at the other end to achieve a 18-20 win season.

    Maybe I'm just really, really optimistic.

    Not quite "our" defense - at least not yet. The goals against were against the 2nd half trialists, for the most part.
