And away we go into attack. Lemme tell ya, I spent a lot of time moving about five of the players you will see over these next three Clipboard lists back and forth between these next three Clipboard lists. My shuttle budget is well-busted at this point.
Anyway... so yeah, right wing! Please do remember, my game plan is full-on 4-3-3 (as in, no 4-5-1 with the wingers lower then the #10 on the heat map if we can help it). The wide attackers will have defensive responsibilities, but not quite so many as, say, Beasley circa PSV or Beasley circa most of his USMNT career or my current starter for this list, Bedoya, at last year's World Cup.
Now, don't get me wrong; Bedoya's hustle from end-to-end is one of his most valuable traits and I don't want to lose it. I just want these wingers pinned back less and unleashed more often. Speaking of off the chain, Morris was one of those moved around several times and he appeared on all three forward line lists at some point before the posting. Confining him to one position is almost unfair, but I'm hooked and will testify that the kid is a legit bench threat option for any important game right now.
As for Corona, I understand playing him as a defensive midfield guarding the back line less than I understand playing Diskerud there. His best US outings have come on right wing and I prefer best US outings. Rubin has added a little muscle and only needs time for seasoning. I'll tell why Finlay could make things happen at this level: he does not waste steps on his "shortest point between... " runs/dribbles and his unusual cross delivery is very difficult to read. I'd like to see him in the shirt next time out, pleeeease.
