Yes, I am going to get all three forward line positions up tonight.
Bedoya has greatly improved out wide in the last couple years and continues to get better. And when considering the two-way flank game of a wide attacker, he is now the best at this aspect of the position in the US pool. Yeah, even better than FabJo. And I am sure you are thinking, but hey, Rubin has mostly been starting (and excelling) as either a No. 10 or the center forward. That is all true, but actually, three of five Rubin assists this season have come when he raided the right and picked out the scorer with a cross. Furthermore, both his goals have happened with him invading from... waaaait for it... the right side. Zusi stands on very shaky ground, with Shipp coming on, Corona back to training with a ball and Gatt headed back to full fitness (hopefully for much longer this time) in the spring. One could also try the likes of Rowe out here, me thinks.
