Many of us fans love discussing the starting XI. It is one of the most fun things to do. For the Timbers, when healthy, the back seven including Ricketts is basically set for now, even though many of us really want Powell to show more.
The top four is where the action is. We know Nagbe, Valeri and La Gata all start. The question is do we have Urruti up top, Zakuani/Wallace out left with La Gata up top or maybe even KAH on one wing with Nagbe on the other with La Gata up top.
I think Zak is weeks away from being ready to start and I really want to see Urruti make the most of this opportunity to try to keep his starting spot. We might see Zak or RW on the left after they are healthy as that just is a better formation for us but I want to see Urruti make that decision very hard for Porter.
Max needs to finish, needs to bag a goal or be involved in a couple of goals. His future could be very bright and I for one would really like to see him grab this chance by the horns and stay in the starting XI all year.
I wonder for others on this site do you want to continue to see Urruti up top or Zak/RW out wide with La Gata up top? Or need more info still?
