Corona has seen time in the center at Xolos.
So, (try to) play "beautiful", regardless of opponent, or the players available for selection?
Brilliant tactics, Cruyff.
We are playing at home in front of a raucous crowd. I'd rather not see us come out and bunker and try to counter for goals.
I don't care how we do it, I just want to win.
Regardless of the outcome, the way we play Tuesday will not be an indictment on us because, like hendo said, we are without our best striker, best mid, and best centerback.
Once those guys are back, we will go back to the way we have played during the streak, for now, we just need to win
That being said, our talent/depth is supposed to be deeper than ever right now. Even with the loss of those guys we should still be able to field a team of guys willing/able to attack and create chances, especially at home.
If Argentina lost Messi, Aguero and Maxi Rodriguez, they'd have to drastically change tactics as well.
I want Beckeman sitting in front of our center backs. Jermaine Jones can't be trusted defensively in the absence of Michael Bradley.
Even with two DM, the defense will still be shaky. The bigger worry for me is who is the striker. If we see Dempsey up top again, we are in trouble. Need both Dempsey and Donovan deeper and on the ball more and hopefully running off of GAM/Bacon.
