I watched the NER/NYRB match Sunday and I tried my best to follow Nguyen. This guy looked legit out there. Obviously it would have to continue throughout the season, but could he be deserving of a January USNT call-up?. He reminded me a lot of Wesley Schneider. I'm a NYRB supporter and I dont get to watch him every week, so could NER fans give me some insight on him?

I can see him getting a January callup.

The guys in MLS who should be there in January are: Pontius, DeLeon, Gonzalez, Meara (Ireland not withstanding), Nguyen, Shea, Bruin, Sapong,

I hope Nguyen continues to play like he did Sunday. He had a nice little swagger out there. And a beautiful goal to boot.

In the handful of Revs games I've caught, Lee's impressed me each time. He certainly has a swagger but it's not arrogant or selfish. His nice first touch and quick burst of speed have caused havoc on opposing defenses. I've noticed he finds himself in good spots which only increases his success rate. I didn't realize he reads the game as well as he does. Lee allows the game to come to him and doesn't force anything. I hope it continues . He received any aweful lot of flack due to his career choices and he's showing be did grow and learn a thing or two.

I'd like to see what he can bring. He's a winger right? Refresh my memory...

Yeah he fits best on the wing. Good pace, nice improvisational skills, which I've always found to be semi-lacking among US wing options not named Dempsey.

I think a lot of people thought Vietnam was a waste...maybe it was (doesn't seem like it)...but you can tell he has talent. To come back from Vietnam, bounce clubs, and get a starting spot is a good showing. Especially to do it in less than a year.

I think that hits it right on the head. Exactly what I thought. Although you guys say he's a winger, I thought he played more of a central role. He just always seemed to be around the ball kind of like how Ozil played for Germany. He lined up centrally but covered touchline to touchline.

I think sene moving outside from the striker spot had a lot to do with that. The middle is pretty clogged for NE with Joseph, Benny and Rowe. Throw Nguyen into that mix and thats a formidable group. Now if only Bengston could find some goals.

Nguyen has been a monster this year. The guy has always had potential, hence going to PSV. Didn't exactly live up to expectations but he has found himself with the Revs. Would love to see JK call him up. You cannot have too much depth. I know he will be in the January camp.

I haven't seen Nguyen play since the USMNT (what 8 years ago??). He looked good to me. Was always surprised that he went to Vietnam. Crazy fucking world. Good to hear that he's back and playing well.

Love lee. Don't think he makes quick enough decisions to play top caliber international teams.

Nguyen isn't a winger, he works best as a CM/CAM within a formation that has 3 central midfielders.

That was in 2012, when MLS low balled him when he came back. He makes close to 200K this year, a nice raise but still underpaid for his contributions
