Listen up, DCU. Here's what we want:
Just score some goals. Give us something to cheer, other than a successfully completed pass at midfield.
So, it's time to get crazy. Not just with lineups, but with formations.
No more one lonely guy up top. It's time for 4-2-4.
That's right. Brazilian-style, Pele-era, super-aggressive attack. Hell, I'd go to 5-1-4, since Kitchen is the only midfielder actually playing out there right now. But let's not get too crazy.
Here's my line-up.
FOUR FORWARDS: DeRo - Townsend - Gladiador - Ruiz. Put the vets on the wings. They can control the ball and make smart plays. Put the youth in the center, with enough energy and hunger to race to the box and take the shots.
TWO MIDFIELDERS: Kitchen - His Bio-Engineered Twin, Jerry Bathroom.
Just kidding. Kitchen - Porter.
Porter's youth serves him well. He's all over the place. How many times does he touch a ball in a game? He seems to have the right spirit.
FOUR DEFENSIVE BACKS: Korb - Jakovic - McDonald - White.
I really don't know who else to stick back there. Jakovic and McDonald are having massive slumps. I guess Jakovic is now hurt, too. Korb is still a workhorse, though he's showing signs of having caught the same slump at times. Maybe it's contagious? Sigh. This part doesn't really matter. Four forwards is the point. Attack. The other team is going to score on us. So - ATTACK.
We want goals. Score some goals, maybe we'll win. Throw caution to the wind.
