    As far as we've been told, TNT and Chris Brown are out, and JMM and Heaps are questionable. Based on this, what would be your starting lineup on Saturday, who would you use for subs, etc.





    Key subs:

    Bagley (for Fabbro, early if Fabbro isn't producing.)

    On a slightly unrelated topic, I bet Matt Reis would be a great striker. Have you seen him warming up on the field? His shots on net are rockets!

    IF Franchino is ready, I'd put Leonard at right back. It's likely not his best position, but it's still football, right? Of course, if we're playing for "experience", toss Downing a start.

    As for Fabbro/Bagley, Fabbro has done some really nice things on the field. It's clear he's not really a goal scorer, but he's been a very good target for others to play off. After all the people who have been tried and failed at being a holding-forward (Twellman, Fuller, Okoh, Harris, Chacon, Hurtado, ...) Fabbro is actually catching the ball and holding it until options arrive.

    Bagley made a key play in drawing the PK against DC, but other than that I haven't seen anything from him.

    I agree Fabbro's been coming through for us the last couple of games, and definately deserves to start. I want to belive he can turn it on for us and create. Some games earlier, he was just invisible, though...

    I like Leonard in the back, too. He's a guy you could put anywhere.

    Personally, I would give Kam a rest. It's been a long season for him and he's starting to fade late in games. I'd play Franchino or Marshall to left-mid and the other at left back.

    I agree with brianzappa. Leonard has really stepped up his game. I also think Jason Moore could handle the left side.
