Road to March 2: Catch up with your team's moves ahead of the 2019 season

 

Atlanta United

Projected starting XI (4-3-3, right to left): GK Brad Guzan – Franco Escobar, Michael Parkhurst, Leandro Gonzalez Pirez, George Bello – Eric Remedi, Julian Gressel, Darlington Nagbe – Tito Villalba, Josef Martinez, Ezequiel Barco

 

FC Cincinnati

Projected starting XI (4-4-2, right to left): GK Przemyslaw Tyton – Alvas Powell, Mathieu Deplagne, Kendall Waston, Greg Garza – Emmanuel Ledesma, Victor Ulloa, Leonardo Bertone, Roland Lamah – Darren Mattocks, Fanendo Adi

 

Columbus Crew

Biggest move so far: It's not been confirmed or announced yet, but all signs point toward Caleb Porter taking over as head coach

Projected starting XI (4-2-3-1, right to left): GK Zack Steffen – Harrison Afful, Jonathan Mensah, Lalas Abubakar, Milton Valenzuela – Wil Trapp, Artur – Pedro Santos, Federico Higuain, Justin Meram – Gyasi Zardes

 

Montreal Impact

Projected starting XI (4-3-3 defensive, right to left): GK Evan Bush – Bacary Sagna, Victor Cabrera, Rudy Camacho, Daniel Lovitz – Samuel Piette, Micheal Azira, Saphir Taider – Alejandro Silva, Maxi Urruti, Nacho Piatti

 

New England Revolution

Projected starting XI (4-2-3-1 right to left): GK Matt Turner – Andrew Farrell, Jalil Anibaba, Michael Mancienne, Edgar Castillo – Luis Caicedo, Scott Caldwell – Juan Agudelo, Diego Fagundez, Cristian Penilla – Juan Fernando Caicedo

 

Orlando City SC

Biggest move so far: There have been too many moves amid the Lions’ overhaul to name just one. Danilo Acosta and Joao Moutinho with fresh starts are intriguing and Mendez has big shoes to fill in the midfield.

 

Portland Timbers

Projected starting XI (4-2-3-1 right to left): GK Jeff Attinella – Zarek Valentin, Larrys Mabiala, Liam Ridgewell, Jorge Villafana – Diego Chara, David Guzman – Andy Polo, Diego Valeri, Sebastian Blanco – Jeremy Ebobisse

interview with J-Lew

 

 

10:17: Jonathan Lewis -  "Especially shoutout to the 2 Akron guys who are gonna be in the draft... "  Once a Zip, Always a Zip!!! 

 

13:12: Glenn Crooks - "By the way, Ben Lundt and Abdi Mohamed are the Akron players who got the shout out from Jonathan..." 

 

13:27: Glenn Crooks - "in the 2017 SuperDraft, New York City FC gave the Chicago Fire $250,000 in general allocation money to move up to the #3 spot of the 1st round  with the intent to secure the MVP of the MLS Combine, a Generation Adidias player who had excelled in his single season at the University of Akron...that was Jonathan Lewis. ..."

I would like Wil to get to play in Europe...

but I also want him to play for Caleb next year

https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/teams/celtic/celtic-linked-with-mls-star-wil-trapp-as-brendan-rodgers-eyes-reinforcements-1-4853090

 

This brings up a good point TZ...I agree with you on this....I admit to being biased towards top-division Euro leagues and enjoy watching those matches much more than MLS ones,, and so I believe our USMNT players would benefit more from some time over there, including Wil et al.  Your (and others) thoughts on the level of MLS vs. EPL, Ligue 1, La Liga etc?

Thanks. I also didn't recognize the acronym.

 

English Football League Championship   https://www.efl.com/clubs-and-competitions/sky-bet-championship/

ESPN refers to it as ELC ... http://www.espn.com/soccer/standings/_/league/eng.2

My interest is how does Scottish Premiership compare to MLS? Would Wil Trapp really progress more with Celtic than with the Columbus Crew? My opinion is no. I don't think that Perry Kitchen gained anything by going to the Scottish Premiership. I'd hate for Wil to have a similar experience.
