Social Media Mailbag: Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012
Adam Soucie gets answers to your questionsEvery time I go up to training, I'll open up a thread on Facebook looking for questions you want answered. I'll pick out my favorite and have it answered by the players & coaches. I'll also be answering some of them myself. Here's this week's Social Media Mailbag.
Question of the Week:
Kim Sisneros - How does Adrian feel about the unfortunate missed opportunities the Lions had against the Union?
Adrian Heath - When I look back at the game and consider that they're four or five weeks into preseason and we're four or five days in, I'm really pleased with the way we performed. I don't think anybody who knows anything about football wouldn't justifiably think we deserved at least a draw. I think we should have won the game, actually.
When I look at their goal, that was error for us. Their two opportunities came from mistakes by ourselves. Miguel hadn't have a save to make up until then. They had a few moments when they were dangerous on the counterattack, but all in all, when I look over the 90 minutes I'm more than pleased with our performance. We've played Seattle and we've played Philly, after less than nine days training, and performed admirably. I'm pleased, the players can be pleased. We know we have an awful lot to work on, but in a short period of time I can't be anything other than delighted.
Lukas Desjardins - How much wood can a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?
Is that an African or European woodchuck?
Alexx Klepper - How many licks DOES it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop?
The world may never know.
Tarl Sokolitsky - What EPL team would OCSC like to face this year?
Stoke is the easy answer, as is one of the "Big Four." Outside of the obvious, I'd like a crack at Fulham just for the chance to see Clint Dempsey in Orlando.
Matthew Childress - Who would consider themselves the next best candidate to find love on 'The Bachelor' ?
Most of the guys are taken, so this is a tough one. Luke Boden & Ian Fuller would both be great on the show. What do you think, ladies? Who would you want to see on a 'The Bachelor - Orlando City Edition'?
Michael Rissech - What formation will we be playing this season, And are we only going to have 1 striker up top?
Adrian answered this to some extent in the post-game press conference when he said "We'll play the way we've always played, and teams will have to cope with that." To me, that means we'll generally line up in a 4-4-2. Still, our formation is very fluid over the course of a match, depending on how we're possessing the ball and who is on the field. With only two forwards healthy on Saturday, it didn't make sense to run both of them ragged for 90 minutes with no chance of a sub. That's why we switched to a 4-2-3-1, which occasionaly played as a 4-2-2-1-1 if Rooney pushed up high into the true "#10" role.
The short version is: Not sure yet, probably not.
