Which is, of course, my name for the left center back who can sneak up and snatch the ball, then play it forward with impact.
John Anthony Brooks
This was a tough call, as well. And putting Brooks to the top does not necessarily mean I think he has passed Besler, who did have some struggles in KC after World Cup. The fact of the matter is he is the one I want getting more reps, now that we have started a new cycle. Past them, I am not entirely sure what do with part-time left back Ream, but I definitely want to see what he can do in a US shirt. I can say for sure that it would be nice if Whitbread could stay healthy, even if he does not exactly fit the title specs. For now, I will continue to resist putting Jones here. I will remain open to being convinced by any live demonstrations to come.
