San Jose Earthquakes 2016 Season Preview
Posted By: Chris Ransom on 2/7/2016
Forward Chris Wondolowski who has the versatility to play left wing or right wing at midfield, secondary striker or primary striker. Wondolowski is no longer the only good player on the Earthquakes. San Jose added forward Chad Barrett as a secondary striker from the Seattle Sounders.
Fatai Alashe did a good job as a rookie at midfielder on the wing. Patrick Hodan a 2016 second round pick from Notre Dame may make this roster as a defensive midfielder and could start right away at defensive midfielder. Simon Dawkins signed with the Earthquakes as an attacking midfielder.
San Jose needed help everywhere on defense as well as forward. The Earthquakes added Andres Imperiale from Argentina at center back, but they still need another center back as well as help at both left back and right back.
David Bingham emerged as a great goaltender in 2015 who really carried this team outside of Chris Wondolowski with no defense up front. San Jose also drafted Andrew Tarbell out of Clemson who may start at some point between 2017-2020. There are 4 goalies on this roster, and Andrew Tarbell is competing with 2 other goalies for the right to be David Bingham's backup.
San Jose is thin at defense so Bingham could get injured. If that happened San Jose would have to start Andrew Tarbell.
Prediction: San Jose added Chad Barrett plus their midfielders and goaltending is much stronger with both Bingham and Tarbell on the roster. The Earthquakes are still thin at defense outside of Imperiale which is why they will miss the 2016 MLS Playoffs.
