If JK sends JAB home in a crucial game where we are without Besler and Cameron then I seriously would question him as a manager.

Brooks will do fine with Gonzo... Im worried about Bradley more.. he is the heart and soul of the midfield... Attackers we have depth there...

An early goal will help us immensely. Mexico is nearing it's breaking point whilst simultaneously needing to get a result.

If we can put their backs to the wall early it's quite likely that they'll crash and burn but if we allow them to stick around their do or die attitude may allow them to get the result that they desperately need.

Howard
F. Johnson--Gonzo---Goodson---Beasley
Jones-----Torres
Zusi----------Dempsey-------Donovan
AJ

I'd rather have guzan in goal but it won't happen.

MOF blows, cameron is suspended, parkhurst doesn't play. Johnson is right footed and plays outside back. And we called in two guys (torres and davis) who can play LM.

I rate Torres higher than diskerud and beckerman at CM.

I feel like E. Johnson will start over AJ but I don't think he should. Eddie is great at headers and that's it. He slows play down every time he gets the ball.

Michael Bradley diagnosed with a grade 2 sprain. Still won't play on Tuesday but still better than expected.

Mex right back sucks and Torrado is old and slow.. I'd like to see this..
Iceman
Castillo Donovan Dempsey
Jones
Beckerman(him and Jones will add the physical battles and Kyle will have to help out cb)
Beasley Goodson OG Bedoya
Guz
Bedoya to counter guardado speed and Dempsey to trouble Chaco then you need fast players for gio.. Castillo to dribble past Meza and Beasley to recover.. gio is a one trick pony so just make him go outside.. right foot weak.. USA!!!!

Just read Torrado out so they'll probably throw salcido to cm and Torres nilo back to left back..

I cant believe we will be starting a guy (Goodson) who wasnt even good enough to be called into camp for a critical qualifier. If we win we're in and Mexico has to fight for 4th. Lose and we are looking at a fight to qualify

i still think torres was called in for left mid cover and now we have fabian, torres, beasley, davis and castillo seems like over kill on the left though.

Been hearing that klinsman has been using jones and beckerman as his first choice central midfielders and gonzo and goodson as first choice centerbacks in traning. If this is the case how the hell will any chances be created. Jones better have the game of his life sick and tired of him being one of the worst players on the field and then constantly put in starting 11. Pretty much I think we will get the victory but only because of the absolute chaos of mexico right now 2-0 is my prediction dempsey and goodson on a set piece. Not sure why goodson wasnt called up in the first place orozco fiscal is not good enough at right back and at centerback he is okay.

Klinsis likely lineup

Howard
Parkhurst-Gonzo-Goodson-fabian
Zusi-Jones Beckerman-Donovan
Dempsey
Ej

..........EJ......
....Torres...Deuce.....LD
.......Jones....Beckerman
FJ.....Goodson...Omar...Parkhurst

We're going to struggle maintaining possession with JJ and Beckerman in the middle, so Torres plays the tucked in LM role to help us keep the ball further up field. A more attacking option would be Johannsson in the tucked in LM role.

To all those wanting Guzan to start, it might be the right call but JK cant do that. Howard has played really poorly all season for Everton but you go to him and let him know that this is his game. If he doesnt perform well Guzan will start in the next WCQs and unless he really messed up slides past Timmy in the depth chart. If Guzan comes in and stinks it up against Mexico, Timmy has very little to worry about going forward.

JJ and Beckerman will provide exactly what Cameron and JJ provided, pretty much nothing. Neither are consistent with their passing or really good at keeping possession. Jones can go from one of the best 3 or 4 on the pitch to the worst in a single half. I was hoping Mix or Torres or someone would unseat Jones or Beckerman but JK may be going for the point which is a mistake at home.

Goodson I dont really worry about he is good enough to start, the only problem is, the combo with Gonzo is really worrying. Mexico will run off their back shoulder all night, so it comes down to the back four being in sync with their movement and cover all night.

Torres outwide is a mistake, but is probably where things are headed. As long as Orozco isnt playing RB I wont complain about who is. I think LD slides in that withdrawn spot and Dempsey sits with Bedoya coming in at RM.
