About this formation
Personally, I believe this is the best starting XI. Kelley has established her position as a LB and I truly believe she is the best person for the job. Chalups is good, but for someone whos been thrown into defense so quickly, I don't think she has the most time to learn a new position. Either Jill puts her in midfield or not on the roster at all.
Becky and Rampone are undoubtedly the best CBs on the team, Engen and Bue are good too, but the experience and hard work that comes from the former is unbelievable. Say no more about Kriegs. Just no dispute. Best RB in the world, male or female hands down.
Moving up to midfield, JJ is a defender, but she could be a really good holding defensive midfielder which would alleviate the stress from our higher up midfield.
Tobin is a great LM/LW, she has great pace, creativity and pair that with Alex at the top and you'll have a winning left side.
Lauren will occupy the CM/Number 10 play maker position. Great crosses, great through balls (as seen in her 2013/14 FCKC season with ARod up top.)
HAO is also a great RM/RW, same as Tobin. Great pace, can create separation between her marker, has a killer right foot (Will never forget her shot at the 2012 Olympics.)
Our forwards are definitely Alex and Amy.
Alex has the best pace on the team (alongside Leroux). Again pair her with Tobin behind her and we're set.
ARod is obviously my other forward with Cheney behind her. ARod has the determination to make it to the goal and crazy pace.
- Tobin for Pinoe.
- ARod for Syd/Abby even Press. Most likely Syd though.
- Lauren for Carli, but only if Abby is up top. If not, then Lauren stays.
