Last Saturday, Columbus Crew SC fans got a first look at the Black & Gold lineup for 2017.
As Gregg Berhalter mentioned following 2016, Columbus had four new staters in goalkeeper Zack Steffen, defenders Jonathan Mensah and Jukka Raitala and midfielder Mohammed Abu. Another midfielder, the Brazilian Artur, also made his Major League Soccer debut.
Along with these five, Crew SC fans saw familiar faces. Nicolai Næss and Harrison Afful were on the back line, Ethan Finlay and Justin Meram were wingers, paired with Wil Trapp in the midfield and Federico Higuain played in behind Ola Kamara.
As Columbus heads on the road for the first time in 2017, the lineup could shift, or it could stay the same. But that doesn’t matter for our purposes.
This is about YOU and who YOU want to see on the field.
Not a fan of Steffen in goal? Change it. Want to see more from Artur? Make him the guy. Think Tony Tchani should be back in the lineup? Put him there.
If you got to pick the formation and the players, what and who would you go with? Let us know in the comment section below.
