I finally got what I wanted, and "Sueño" did not let me down. Ladies and gentleman, we have a left back!
Really just here as emergency insurance: DaMarcus Beasley
Sure, Villafaña needs to do it against better competition, but I'm backing him all the way. All he's ever done since winning that contest is prove he can raise his game to new levels. Bornstein deserves a comeback, officially taking over the "veteran" slot in this chart.
Garza has been away for a while dur to injuries, so I'd like him to get more regular minutes in club life. That should not be a problem in Atlanta. As for Da Bease, nobody respects the guy more than me. However, his last US start came 18 months ago and it did not go well at all. We've moved a long way away from Brazil now, and so should the left back stable.
