He's been really good against Augsburg and he's been a big threat since moving up to the right wing. I don't think he's on Berhalters radar anymore but he should be. Any one else down considering our wing options are kinda limited right now?

As I type he's scored again.

Yes. Why would he not consider him. Let bygones by bygones. We need our best players!

I would rather have Tim Chandler vs Tim Ream. But prefer other options overall.

He has become a RW dynamo! And yes he should be on Berhalters radar for RW.

Gotta agree with that for sure

I'd like to see him and de la Fuente then at RW

The question is are we on his radar?

Chandler had said multiple times in the press between 2018 and 2020 that he's wants to play for us

The problem is that most of that time 2018-2020 Chandler was sidelined with Injuries. Now that he's back playing regularly I'm all for him getting called up for a camp to see if he can finally transfer his club for to the USMNT.
That said, his opportunities to represent the US are going to dwindle quickly if he can't duplicate his club form. I don't care if you see him as an outside back or as a wide midfielder. The younger generation of USMNT players are closing the gap quickly on guys like Chandler. They have the raw talent, just lack the experience. But now that more & more are getting consistent 1st team minutes the gap is narrowing.
RB - Yedlin, Dest, Cannon
LB - Dest, A. Robinson, Gloster
RW - Reyna, Weah, Vassilev, Llanez

I'd like to know what the original crap attitude was all about and if he has sincerely changed his tune. He's talented and bottomline, you don't get the cold shoulder if you are that talented....unless there is a problem in the locker room...toxic impact to team chemistry

He needs to be ALL IN and he clearly wasn't before...maybe he finally got a clue...maybe he hasn't...let's see if he gets a second chance.

Dest is better right now.
Cannon is far away.
Yedlin will never reach his quality.
I like A. Robinson as the starting left back in March.
Gloster needs to get the 1st team.
I like all the young wings and they should be in the discussion.
What I do have a problem with is Lovitz, Morris, Arriola, Lima types making it over him

Chandler really only had a couple of good games for the Nats. I would like to see how he does with a different head coach. Maybe it was Klinsmann or how he was expected to play that held him back. I am all for giving him another go.

Look, let's call it for what it is... the USMNT was never Timmy's first choice. He always wanted to play for Germany, and declined multiple call ups early on because at one point it seemed like he may have had a shot at being good enough to at least be a squad player for Germany, so he didn't want to blow his eligibility. But as time wore on... it became clear that wasn't going to happen.

This... this is why he never played well. Not Klinsmann, not the system... it's because he never cared. Sure, maybe he had a hard time adjusting to the time and climate changes in concacaf, but we were always second best. Remember... he went to the 2014 world cup with us... but he never played a single game. He was always a good enough player, but never put in the effort. In a one off game, I would rather take a slightly less skilled player who gives it their all than a slightly more skilled player who doesn't give a crap. And by this, I am referring specifically to Yedlin/Johnson and Chandler.

Its fantastic that hes doing well right now at RW. But let's hold off for a little bit more time and a couple more games before jumping on the bandwagon. A blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while. A 2 to 3 game hot streak isn't enough to completely ignore Chandler's entire body of work... which, up to this point, has been underwhelming and reaked of an attitude that he's too good for us. Terrence Boyd, Jones, FabJo, Brooks... they all committed fully to the cause... Chandler never did.

I'm not opposed to calling him in again if he continues his form. It would be foolish of us not to. But at this point, its premature to start calling for him to get back into the picture. As much as Lalas can be a clown at times, his most recent statements aren't entirely without merit

These friendlies are perfect imo in Europe so he doesn't have to travel far

I'm not advocating for automatic starts let see what is up cuz

Weah still hurt
Reyna young and unproven however he needs to be looked at immediately
Everyone on here has a different opinion on Arriola
Morris probably won't be called
Pulisic might have to stay in London

Pulisic May still be injured. And even if he does come back before the international break it may be to soon for him to have that many games right after an injury.

Chandler should definitely get a look.
