The only unit that comes into this match entirely healthy is the midfield, but what a midfield it is: Andreas Ivanschitz, Osvaldo Alonso and Erik Friberg are three names that can make some beautiful music together.

Trying to figure out the perfect starting lineup for the rest of the season ignores that it will change every game.

The concept of the Ideal XI is platonic. It's like a perfect triangle. It only exists in our thoughts, our minds. As we so carefully craft strawmen as simulacrums of real conversation, we continue to ignore that the Seattle Sounders have more playoff-quality starters than they do positions on the field.
