    My ideal formation is a 4-1-3-2 with Bradley as the CDM behind Holden, Torres, and Landycakes. Dempsey and Jozy up top because they work so well together. It won’t happen though. Klinsi’s vision is great but the 4-3-3 is not really strong for us. It leaves us way too thin because we can’t finish and teams rip us on the counter.

    Matt – I like that formation as well when Holden returns, and we have even more options in the center of the field. I think my proposed formation will end up looking like a 4-5-1 when we defend and have numbers behind the ball. It only works if Donovan and Dempsey can work their tails off to get ahead of the play when we have it and behind the ball when we lose it. Otherwise we will see the ugliness of an unsupported Altidore chasing long passes in vain.
