Quakes recap and a question for the future.


Last night was a generally a good game, except for the absurd decision to start Brovsky at left back.  His inability to mark players in the box directly contributed to SJ's second goal.  I really feel sorry for Knight.  He may not really be MLS caliber, but he is better back than Brovsky any day of the week.  With that in mind, hats off to Koffie and Vaganes who were usually able to slow attacks down to the point were our makeshift back could almost deal with them. Our two CMs seem to be developing some chemistry and  Koffie just keeps getting better.  That brings me to my question.  Now that we have Jarju how should we use him without bumping another of our forwards?

We now have three forwards (Hassli Jarju, and Camilo) and one playmaker (Chiumeinto), not a bad thing, but two of them, Hassli and Camilo have scored almost ALL our goals. How do we actually get them on the field in a reasonable manner without being completely usless defensively?  Even with our starting back line I think we need two central mids. Wither its Koffie and Vanages or Koffie and new DP (please please!) we need those guys in the mid or we lose any control over the game and would be even more open to counterattacks then we already are.  If we are going to play a 4-4-2 I foresee a lot less playing time for Chuimenito. Sohen likes Salanis and Camilo as wingers and I don't think we can give up defensive mid as neither Salanis nor Camilo (or really any of our wingers) can play defense.  I wonder, is Chuimenito now surplus to our requirements? I'd love to see him behind Hassli and Jarju, but I just know that's going to happen, particularly if we bring in another CM.

What do you think?
