2014 NASL: Ottawa Fury Preview, Depth Chart & Key Players

2013: No Record - Expansion Team

Head Coach: Marc Dos Santos

Key Players: Nicki Paterson M (24gp 7g 3a - Charleston), Sinisa Ubiparipovic M (Montreal MLS) Maykon D (AEL Cyprus), Mason Trafford D (Guizhou China), Tony Donatelli M (26gp 3gl 3a - VSI Tampa), Tommy Heinemann F (Vancouver MLS)

Analysis: Ottawa went to great effort to add depth this winter to allow them to be a competitive team in their inaugural NASL season. The club includes two players who played in MLS last season with Heinemann and Ubiparipovic, plus six players from Europe and Canadian Andres Fresenga who played in South America. What should make Ottawa successful is the quality of players they signed from NASL level of play led by the midfield combination of Nicki Paterson and Tony Donatelli. It might take time for them to gel as unit but I feel they will be very strong this season and challenge for a Soccer Bowl place.

2014 Prediction: 3rd Place
