has sunil gulati in his sights

One of the interesting challenges for Berhalter is that we have quite a few attackers whose best position isn't clear. Certainly Reyna. Arguably even Weah. And definitely Aaronson:If I was managing this team, I'd think about moving Reyna central so that he could combine better with Pulisic. The current setup makes it hard for the best attacking players to work together. All the best stuff has involved Pulisic and Dest combining on the left. If it was a 4-2-3-1 with Reyna central, then that trio of players could combine.
I'm a little skeptical of building a formation around Reyna as a central attacker. I'm not sure it's his best position, and based on current form he might not even be Best XI when everyone is healthy and available. I fully expect that he will be soon enough, but he's 18 and is going through some growing pains, and we have other players doing well.
