A couple of changes to the roster lad us to this 3.0 version of the diamond 4-4-2 depth chart. Eric Hassli, Kenny Cooper, and Ramon Nunez are the big news this week.
Depth chart for a diamond 4-4-2.
Some notes and thoughts:
>>I’m still putting players at one spot and one spot only. In the real season it won’t work that way.<<
Striker just got a lot better. I’ve placed Cooper as starter with Perez for now because Hyndman knows Cooper and he’s a great off striker with Perez as the target. The reality will be 2 of the 3, when we include Hassli, starting based on health and call ups etc.
With Brek Shea gone I put Fabian Castillo back on the left which makes Jackson a starter on the right I suppose. I still think Michel could factor at left mid, although I put him behind Jair Benitez at left back for now. Michel also played center back in the most recent FCD scrimmage.
With the log jam at holding mid I moved Cam Wilder to right mid since it was suddenly vacant and he came in for Jackson in the first scrimmage. The guy has been a central mid, both attacking and holding, but the scouting reports I found say he’s got a great motor and can run all day… sounds like a SH wide mid to me.
London Woodberry played center back in the first FCD scrimmage with Kellyn Acosta at right back, which gives us a least some info about where they each might be playing. Woodberry can play in quite a few spots, he’s like Jackson that way.
Since TJ Nelson subbed in for David Ferreira I put him in that spot, but I really don’t think he will end up there. He’s still a long shot to make this roster.
