re: Aron Johannsson chooses USMNT over Iceland


Could we see the return of the 4-4-2 if this guy works out?

I think it pushes us closer to the German 4-2-3-1 with AJ on one of the wings.

re: Aron Johannsson chooses USMNT over Iceland
In my view, you should have two players who do different things. In England you have the classic tall man/target man-small man/poacher combo, but the variations are endless. But the target man/poacher combo is timeless, as is pairing a deep lying forward with a poacher, or a deep lying forward with a targetman. The problems arise when the players do the same thing, except if you have two targetmen, but only the most brutish of teams and styles employ this variation.

I really loved the Jozy/Davies combo too, as they seemed to have a decent understanding, and it allowed Jozy to be more aggressive, since he knew he had immediate support. Oh what could have been.


I think Johannson is more of a poacher, although he has proven that he can create as well. He seems like a rich man's Wondolowski, to be honest.

This would be perfect for Jozy. He's pretty much settled as a target striker even though when he first started out he played wide. I'll watch Johannson soon, but if he's a poacher, then he can slot in nicely. It would be amazing if he could play across the front 3 or behind the striker, as that would give us variation.

Heads up: You can watch AJ in action Sunday morning at 730 CST on ESPN Deportes as AZ takes on Ajax.

If it's on Deportes, it may be on ESPN3 (the Ocho) in English, as well.

A Spanish channel playing Dutch soccer, makes sense.
