Sigi Schmid has been forced into less than ideal circumstances due to one player quitting, and 4 other players on the spine being injured.
Sigi Schmid has been forced into less than ideal circumstances due to one player quitting, and 4 other players on the spine being injured.

Blaise Nkufo is gone. And again, like in 2010, the spine is broken. All four players out due to health are in the spine, and specifically the attacking side of it. Yet, Seattle is one of the leaders in shots on goal. Coach Sigi Schmid has used different shapes, and very different starting lineups as he has tried to compensate for the minor injury to Steve Zakuani.

At the least we know that right here in this moment, right in this instant the depth is gone. O'Brian White, who was supposed to learn from a DP and Nate Jaqua while getting reserve time, is a starter. Lamar Neagle, who was supposed to continue to develop as a non-league player, is now a regular sub.

When Sigi decided to go with a second defensive midfielder, he did not go to Patrick Ianni, but to rookie Servando Carrasco. There may be an opportunity for Ianni to become a starter, but at this point it seems his best chance will be when Leo Gonzalez or Jhon Kennedy Hurtado sit from accumalation.

It is spinal.
