Full Time Move to the 4-4-2?

Interesting article on the Rapids website today, indicating that coach Gary Smith might be switching full time to the 4-4-2 formation that netted the goal - and should have netted two - in the second half of the Kansas City game. 4-5-1 is probably my favorite formation but it obviously hasn't been working for the Rapids, good to hear Smith keeping the changes going to get some offense into the lifeless attack.

Nobody is quite sure who will be the starting four in midfield now, but ColoradoRapidsfan.com has a poll up seeing what we all think.

I'm personally hoping for the "Diamond" formation of 4-1-2-1-2 with our all star midfielder Larentowicz as the Defensive mid, Jamie Smith and captain Pablo Mastroeni on the flanks, and Mehdi Ballouchy as the top attacking midfielder, who can be subbed for Claudio Lopez. Either way, let's see some offense against the Sounders!
