I don't like to judge based on highlights cuz yuh doh see all the hard work but in the previous game I saw him make a mistake that allowed a striker to get through on goal. In defense he has been kinda shaky at times.

Good for him to come on and help rescue a point. The pass was brilliant to be honest. He ketch everybody trying to block nearer the goal.

Even when he playing left back he occupies that attacking space on the left so might as well play him in midfield.

I still find him a bit docile when playing for the Sounders, we only get glimpses of what we know he can do much more regularly.

Schmid encouraged him to be more attacking and played him in more advanced positions at times so i don't think its a matter of the team tactics forcing him to be more defensive.

If you're referring to the bad pass straight to the opposing player, yeah, I saw that. Apart from that though he didn't have a bad game. Just didn't have much impact on the offensive end. I seem to remember one decent run forward and a couple of nice passes out of the defense, up to the forwards. However, I did notice several occasions when he was free in space on the left and they chose to play the ball out to the right.

Agreed, apparently even the new team tactics encourages both fullbacks to make outside runs to help on the offensive end. I also remember a review of one of his first games with the team which mentioned his ability to control the entire left side of the field.

My suspicion is that he hasn't quite worked out or perfected how to balance his defensive responsibilities with his offensive responsibilities hence his tendency to disappear during games.

Glad you noticed it as well but last time I mentioned his lapses in concentration I got berated for it. Good technical player but that's his only fault.

The best outcome would be for someone to plug him away from Seattle but he would need more international exposure for that to happen.

Unfortunately, didn't do much before that. But then the same could be said about the whole Sounders team. They got away with one last night. And on top of that the goal was actually offside. Say what, that's the way it goes some times.  :beermug:
