A blog that I read, Philly Soccer Page, alleged in a August 26, 2010 post that Nowak is letting the fan base down by staying with veteran players at this point in the season. The playoffs are out of reach, and the older players aren’t playing well enough to justify keeping the young guys on the bench. I alluded to that in my post about why I want them to play a 4-2-3-1 formation. But here’s another point that supports PSP’s opinion: Peter Nowak has stuck with Chris Seitz all season long (save for those disastrous minutes in Dallas). Nowak wants Seitz forged in the fire of league play, even if there were better alternatives available, so this is why playing all of their young players makes sense. They should all be getting minutes so they can make their mistakes and learn from them this season and can make progress with a clean slate next season. Get it done, Petey!
