Starting XI in a 4-4-2

The first three preseason games from California are in the books with three solid results and some good performances from certain individuals if we can judge by the write-ups.

So as I love doing every couple of weeks or so during the preseason...I find myself writing down my starting XI and my bench VII. I thought I would post mine here and see what thoughts everyone else had.

Thoughts:

1. A couple weeks ago I thought I wanted to see Nagbe in the MF and Perlaza up top. Not anymore. I still like Perlaza but I want to see Songo'o and Alexander on the wings and Nagbe up top.

2. I cringe at this thought but I almost want Wallace over Chabala...especially because I think Alexander can provide defensive cover at about 500% the level that Kalif did last year.

3. I would also be very content to see Futty start in place of Mosquera and move him to the bench.

4. I could not think of any other option at RB to displace Palmer. Any ideas there?

Starting XI:

Perkins

Palmer Mosquera Brunner Chabala

Songo'o Jewsbury Chara Alexander

Boyd Nagbe

Bench VII:

Gleeson, Wallace, Futty, Marcelin, Alhassan, Dike, Perlaza

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
