Your Starting XI Half Way Through MLS Season

No Hurtado, No Fucito, No Estrada. We'll say all the minor injuries are normal. We'll also say that Seattle is in their variant of the 4-1-3-2 with stacked forwards. Let's do this in light of Ljungberg moving onwards with no one brought on to the club.

Montero

I have Brad Evans on the bench, because I think that the Sounders really play so well with Nate Jaqua on the pitch, but the team still needs some off ball speed, and only Seamon can do that from a Central Midfield role.

For the Bench I would go: Evans, Marshall, Montano, Wahl, Scott, Levesque and Boss. That covers all roles, and gives speed as an option, as well as late game heroics and solid defensive choices. An option would be to lose one of Wahl/Scott to have Nyassi as well.
