We move on to left back...
Also in the frame: *Gregory Garza, Chris Tierney
I've made my feelings quite clear about Villafana. Simply put, he is easily the top choice based on club form. And the longer we refuse to play a natural left back, the longer we will hear complaints that we have no natural left backs - it's a self-circling problem. Castillo is not quite the chump many make him out to be, and to me, he's improved some in a US shirt.
Garza is listed with an asterisk because he's only recently back from a long injury lay-off, but truth be told, if fit he'd be ranked second and battling for first. Tierney's crossing/set piece game is too ridiculously good to roundly ignore.
UPDATE: In a rush, I typed this without referring to my master pool list and completely flaked on Ream. My bad. He resides in the second slot, not Castillo.
