Welcome back to the debate of the week. Last week generated some decent poll numbers, and I am looking to continue that trend. One of the comments last week asked of we could debate one last week's example topics, so that's what we will do.

Debate of the week: In the event of a Jimmy Nielsen retirement, do we promote Eric Kronberg to starter, or do we go and find someone else?

Facing the facts, Jimmy Nielsen is 34 years old, and rumors of his retirement have been swirling around for some time. I wouldn't be surprised if he retired after Sporting wins the MLS cup in 2012 (It will happen, there's no disputing).

So the question is, can Kronberg be our starter of the future? The floor is yours.
