    They have turned as cold as ice, yet it seems their line-up hasn't changed much.

    Has Preki gotten tired?

    Is it the defenders?

    D-mids? Maybe the non-performance of Gomez?


    Wolff? Seems like he's been gone all year.


    Meola? Seems like he's not as athletic as in past years, yet hollers just as more.

    The numbers are pretty telling. The Wizards have scored 40 goals which is second highest in the league while allowing 40 which is 9th worst out of ten teams. Meola continues to give up soft goals and the quality of chances the defenders allow is also making it too easy at this level for the opponents. If the best backline and goalie are already on the field then I would think an upgrade is in order to start putting away some of these games when the attack is obviously doing the job. A question for Gansler might be why he plays three in the back when they struggle on defense so much, I assume it's to play 5 in MF and win balls before they get to the danger area. In any case it's not working.

    Any word on Josh Wolff? When will he play again? Any chance he'll be back this weekend?
