We've all pondered what the Philadelphia Union are doing in regard to their defensive positions. Currently the team sports only five natural defenders and have no cover at the two full back positions. Relying on Juan Diego Gonzalez Alzate to be the depth for all four positions, while using out-of-position players like Amobi Okugo to make up for the lack of defenders, has raised a lot of questions as to the approach of the Union to the situation.
