The Smooth Criminal

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
Matt Besler
Tim Ream

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.
