As the Oranj sit idle, the Dynamo Theory Faithful (ROYAL WE) must endure an excruciating lull between games, while teams push past us in the playoff standings. So I sit, twiddling my angry thumbs-with little left to do other than creating an interim poll. Impotence sucks so I must resort to madness.
For years, one of the primary questions for the Dynamo has been- if Ching is injured or is having one of his infamous dry spells, who picks up the scoring slack? Results often depend on whether our midfield scores, though Boz has brought unexpected boosts. Still, his contributions have counterbalanced by backline gaffes.
This week, the question is much simpler. Since we know we're going to play a diamond 4-4-2 (duh), who should start alongside Ching? Who on the front line has the best chance of scoring that elusive away goal?
Who is the Flying Hawaiian's partner up top? (beware, sarcastically biased poll inflection disease)
Costly- this might be his breakout game. It's just a matter of time, he's come awfully close. Again and again. I can already hear the arguments for a wider goal to improve the game- would Mack Truck dimensions suffice? (13 votes)
Bruin- Dancing Yogi scored in Columbus and a brace in his last reserve game. What has he done wrong to sit out so long? (17 votes)
Speedo Carr with his Knute Rockne gridiron helmet- he can stretch a defense when we're not tactically sabotaging ourselves. Maybe we can get a tap in through breathtaking Oduro like breakaways. (5 votes)
Weaver in a wheel chair- he'll dive or die for balls. He may not score but he'll give his all. (3 votes)
Garey- if he's not doing Claude Rains invisible man impersonations. What's that you say? He's played how many minutes this year? Really? Like a conspiracy theory, how can you really be sure? Perhaps he's a reserve league wonder just waiting to bust out? (2 votes)
Homeless guy at stoplight has as much a chance to score up top as anyone. Okay, I know you may be despondent, but is it really that bad? (8 votes)
