This is the fifth installment in the ‘Who Dat’ series. The beginning of the 2010 season is fastly approaching and to be sure each team gets its ‘Who Dat’ treatment there will be two series posted at a time. The Philadelphia Independence are this post’s team to go through the ‘Who Dat’ treatment.

The Front Line: The front line for the Philadelphia Independence is an unproven group in the WPS. Amy Rodriguez (number one overall pick of the 2009 WPS general draft) didn’t have as a successful first WPS season as she would have liked with the Boston Breakers. And the internationals in this group; Holmfridur Magnusdottir, Karina Maruyama, and Lianne Sanderson have had success in their other league play but have yet played a game in the talented heavy WPS.

The Midfield: This group for the Independence will give the offense a spark and boost. Lori Lindsey will provide the main spark to this group creating the offensive boost. International stand out Caroline Seger will be the second catalyst in this group to give the offense some kick. Around them will be Joanna Lohman and Jennifer Buczowski who will fill in the rest of the midfield for the Independence.

The Defense and Goal Tending: The defense and goal tending for the Independence is the most proven group on the team. Sol transplants Allison Falk and Karina LeBlanc will be part of a back line which will be tough to break. They will be joined by US Women’s National Team standout Heather Mitts who will be slotted in her natural right back position. The rest of the Independence back line will be filled in by Nikki Krzysik and Sara Larsson.

The Philadelphia Independence will keep games close and exciting to watch. They will gather some wins as they make their way through their inaugural season.

The next team to be put on the table for the ‘Who Dat’ treatment will be the Saint Louis Athletica, so stay tuned.
