Can former USMNT boss Bob Bradley help resurrect Freddy Adu's career? Well it seems he is training/trialing with Bob's current team Stabaek IF .

If Mikey Stephens can play well in Norway then Freddy Adu surely can.

Good to hear. Hope he gets a contract.

He brought him to the Gold Cup when no one thought he should be there and look what happened. Hoping the best for Adu and Bob Bradley...

If FA works hard and manages his ego, he should do well.

He has two years to turn it around. Im not sure anybody will have any interest in a 27 year old Adu.

Come backs and second chances are what Americans do. I would not be surprised if Adu is back on the USMNT next summer for the Gold Cup. Bradley is clearly not a CAM.

It would be a nice story if it happened, but realistically there are a few players ahead of him right now, namely Mix and Gil.

Things change in a year in Football. I am still not sold on Gil.

Dillion Powers, Zusi, Gil, Feilhaber, and Nyugen would all be potential options at cam. I think Adu has to play really well at CAM in Norway plus he like ronaldo has issues with tracking back on defense. Ronaldo can get away it because the plus minus is so high I dont think adu will be called up by klinsmann until he works on tracking back. Also dont forget Darlington Nagbe will be elgible in 2015 for the USMNT. Although those guys might not be used at cam but I believe all of those players will still be ahead of adu.

If he starts getting matches in the Championship for Fulham Emerson Hyndman could also join that mix.

I agree their are a lot of possibilities for the USMNT in the next cycle. Don't forget that Arriola, Holmes, Junior Flores, Rubio Rubin, and Sonora will be in the mix at attacking midfield positions. The USMNT will have an embarrassment of attacking riches in the next WC cycle
