Sigi Schmid talked today about perhaps using Freddie Ljungberg and Fredy Montero in the same starting lineup for the first time Saturday when Kansas City visit.
"It's exciting for us because it gives us a lot of option, a lot of opportunities," Schmid said. "They're different, but they're similar in that they're both dangerous players, they're both players that help us keep possession of the ball, which is always a good thing. Right now, having them both on the field at the same time means that we have to change in little subtle ways just to cover and balance and make sure that we're in good position when we loose the ball as well. That's going to take a little bit of time, but I think we have enough intelligent players on the field that we can do that."
However, that also would mandate sending some other starter to the bench. I asked if he knows who that will be.
"I do," he replied, "but you don't."
