Toni Stahl returns from his red card tonight. Don't start him.

Lets take a look again at the starting lineup last week:

Seitz
Orozco Califf Arietta Harvey
Jacobsen Miglioranzi Fred Torres
Moreno LeToux

I felt like the defensive nucleus last week worked well: Califf, Orozco, Arietta and Harvey. Orozco made the one big mistake with a weak pass out from the back but lets be honest: those 2 goals were gifts to DC. The defense played hard and created opportunities.

I assume the rest of the lineup will largely remain the same. Fred improved distribution greatly through the center and offered some creative moves. Torres is always making it happen. Moreno and LeToux work well together up top.

Keep the formation that seemed to gel last week. Unless there are serious matchup issues with Toronto I wouldn't change a thing heading into tonight's game.
