  • 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.

  • In reply to CountChocula:

    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
