26. PATRICK SWANDELL
After scoring on his debut in 2016, Pat soon played his way into a regular starting spot up front for Shane. His arrival both coincided with and helped the team develop a different style as Pat’s strength, touch and brilliant hold up play allow attacking midfielders and wingers to push beyond him.
Though the role he plays as a deep lying forward means he may not find himself in front of goal too often, his role in the team is undeniably important as he allows other attacking players to find space. The 2017 season is shaping up to be a good one for Pat as he’s already put in stellar performances in the first couple of games.
