This week on The Play, Bobby is joined by Nat Borchers (defender, Portland Timbers) and Cole Grossman (midfielder, Stabaek) to discuss how Marouane Fellaini could possibly be Jose Mourinho's first choice at defensive mid; what it says about about Mourinho; and, more importantly, what is says about the job of a defensive midfielder. Nat and Cole discuss the decisions and skills of a #6, and what they've learned from a couple of the best in MLS: Kyle Beckerman and Diego Chara.
