And here we go.......

Dillon Serna is the one that really confounds me.

I expect Serna and Trapp to go, Yedlin is quite possible too. The one name that's not on the Top Drawer list I like to see around next season is Gallego. Losing Meves and Barson and possibly a Gallego would really hurt the back core. I'd like to see Gallego stick around to try and hold down the back line and keep its composure one more season.

Think the one we are resigned to losing is Trapp. I'd say it's more likely then not then the rest will not go pro. Whether they are at Akron next year is another story. Koroma especially I think will have a break out season next year, but I feel like after this fall, it's not a given it will happen here.

Hey! Thanks for the inside info girl8! As far as the back line goes, I think if we keep Gallego, and with Souders getting a chance to show the prowess that made him a USA captain we will be fine. I wonder whether Gallego will stay at left or become the "attacking defender" right back (also, who else will start at CB?). I'm more concerned over scoring -- Brenes can probably get drafted first round after this season. I don't think Koroma can do it alone.

Wow! I hope Koroma overcomes this condition; it is nothing to trifle with.

We catch a break that Brenes has not been able to keep healthy, and also that he is an excellent student. I think he stays. Gallego lacks the speed for flank play, but he will do nicely where he is. Afsarifard is next up at CB; I think he is underrated.


Stevenson..........Brenes...................Koroma

Portillos................Foldesy.......................Quinn

Derschang...Gallego...Souders.....Abdul-Salaam

...........................Pina....................................
