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?
