I've been posting on the USMNT board about my looking in on the Nats training at Nike in my town but I thought i'd say something more DCU specific here. Also Red & Black will meet me tomorrow at practice and maybe we can post diametrically opposed views of what we think we saw! Anyways, I've been to two practices so far (Wednesday and today (Friday) and I'll say that both of our favorite sons have acquitted themselves very well. Tino has been used strictly as a forward and IMO he's been as dangerous as any of the other forwards (Casey, Wolff, Noonan, sometimes Donovan). Noonan's been possibly slowed by an ankle hurt but otherwise, Tino's versatility has been on full display. He has hit the crossbar on several occasions though. However he's been very mobile, his speed of thought is at least as good as anyone else's... well you know I like him but still... Benny has also played well but it's harder for him to shine as he's playing a central mid role on a team that also has LD, Mastroeni, Armas, JOB, and Dempsey. Serious competition. Still it looks like he fits even though all of them (even Armas) look real good. Benny has played a little right wing too and on this team he's probably #2 on that depth chart behind Ralston. (He or Hedjuk who's #2 also at left and right backs.) Benny hasn't played fullback in case you were wondering. he's scored a couple of nice goals. If there's one word I'd use from his scrimmaging here it's 'solid". No errors.
