Preseason Look: Orlando City

We have a new team at the bottom of the East. This team is far from complete, let along competing. Giving them an incomplete grade right now. They are missing right and left backs, players on the right and left in the midfield and in desperate need of a goalkeeper.

Even when they find players to fill these roles, they will still be stuck in a 4231 type of formation that just about every MLS team plays. No ability to switch to something more attacking, nor more defending. They are just... there.

There are few players to even highlight. Kljestan is still around. Lamine Sané is one to watchas well. Outside of that, it's a mix of average players coached by someone way over their head.

Don't look for Orlando to create any worst to first type storylines this year.
