I think Borini will play CF. He's not a natural winger and struggled in that position with liverpool last season

I guess he could play underneath Jozy. But competition is never a bad thing.

I know there were reports of Michael Bradley maybe transferring to Sunderland. Didn't happen, probably for the better. But I can't help thinking that with all the talk about Manchester United needing a workmanlike midfielder from box to box, they couldn't at least give him a look at....

Didn't really struggle, he played well. He started off fairly well, it's just that most everything went through Suarez, then he got injured, then Liverpool signed Coutinho and Sturridge and his chances dropped, then a month later got hurt again till the end of the season. He can play wide, he has a good enough engine to play both ways, he hustles.....he's not going to create chances like a traditional winger, he will want to cut in and play 1-2s off Jozy. He is a poacher, and makes very good runs in and behind the backline so he will pull defenders off Jozy. He can also play underneath Jozy as well, and is pretty good on set pieces. Not where I wanted him to wind up as I think they still lack enough quality in the center of the pitch though Ki will go a long way in shoring that up, he's got good vision and passing range, very technical player.

Parkhurst's goose is cooked. He didn't even dress in tonight's DFB Pokal match against the mighty 3.Bundesliga squad Muenster. Augsburg went on to win 3-0. If he cannot get off the bench in these easy games I see no hope for him. It's a terrible situation for club and player. They are wasting $150k on a 29 year old they have absolutely no plans for and Parkhurst is in the hunt for one of the 23 World Cup roster spots knowing that barring a major change he won't see the pitch until January at the earliest.

In other news, Bobby Wood dressed but did not feature in tonight's 2-0 loss to Dortmund. Fabian Johnson started at LB for 1899 Hoffenheim.
