The win last night was heady stuff indeed - I'm still buzzing, even from my exile post here in Minneapolis.
But what would soccer be without idle speculation and faux crises?
Here's mine for today: Were does our new DP signing fit in? The obvious move would be to slot him in central midfield next to Jack Jewsbury, with Chara pushing forward and Jewsbury in more of a holding role, and Marcelin heading to the bench. But what I saw last night gave me pause. Marcelin was a very disruptive force for most of the match. His size and tenacity broke up countless Fire attacks, and he came away with the ball a fair number of times as well.
So will Spencer make the simple move, or is there a chance we'll see a Chara / Marcelin midfield?
