Squad Selection: FC Dallas vs Toronto FC

Saturday can't come soon enough.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Actually this week's squad selection should be a lot of fun. Dallas is in the middle of a three game winless streak. Scored only one goal in the process. Two game losing streak at home. Sent the fans home chicken-less for consecutive games. It's probably time for a big lineup shift right?

I heard some of you claiming it's time to put in the rookies and young guns as a message to the starters that their recent display isn't good enough. Will you follow through with that? Does Otis Earle and Alex Zendejas get to sport their new hairdos for the Dallas faithful this weekend? What are you going to do? Vote and tell us in the comments!

As of 4/14, the official injury report is as follows:

  • Coy Craft (left shoulder surgery)
  • Stephen Keel (right foot surgery)
  • Dan Kennedy (back spasms)
  • Mauro Diaz (leg/foot injury)

But there have been reports that Mauro Diaz and Dan Kennedy practiced yesterday morning, so take that as you will.

Brainstorms and Opinions

Here are some potential lineups from other voices on BigD:

Here's my idea. We return to the 4-4-2 diamond. It's probably the most offensive of FCD's potential lineups, and offense covers up a lot of warts. If Diaz cannot go, you give Bekker a go in his place. I'm not sold on Bekker at all, but he'd be better than Michel in an advanced position, leaving the aging Brazilian as someone to bring in off the bench late. Alternately, figure out how to merge Diaz and Bekker into one healthy unit via the marvels of modern science. - nathanjhill

I'm still not fully convinced that Diaz is going to be healthy enough to start Saturday, so I'm taking a risk here and putting Ryan as my central midfielder. He isn't the creator and playmaker that Diaz is, but he can distribute the ball with help form Victor, and he plays much better defense than Mauro. Aside from that, have to reunite Hedges and Loyd. - @scotthiney
