  • by adding another defender, i am guessing 4-4-2 formation is more likely now

  • In reply to CountChocula:

    I don't know that acquiring Yamith Cuesta necessarily means a formation change is in the works. But acquiring a 6-3 central defender does give them options although Watson-Siriboe is available and Robinson can also play center back.

    who backs up segares on the left? wether he is playing as a winger or left back? is banner the only option there, assuming pappa stays in the center?

    gibbs can play some left back too, eh? but i dont see him pushing up as a winger like segares does

  • In reply to CountChocula:

    Pretty sure Pantazopoulos played some there in pre season.

  • In reply to cesba:

    why we need another defender and not forward?

  • In reply to Adam25:

    we do need another forward and they've acknowledged that. but we really didn't give up much to gain some more depth, which is never a bad thing...so it sounds like a good move to me as long as this guy is decent.

    according to wikipedia he was on loan to chivas, and chivas released him back in february

    he's played 15 matches in 2 seasons with chivas - not sure if he was injured at all during either of those 2 seasons
