Charlie with two goals in the past two weeks. He is sending a message to Klinsmann.

Both Charlie and Agudelo on two goals, same as Altidore. Revolution looking like the best team in the league right now.

Altidore has a lot of pressure on him.

Where do you think Davies would be right now if he didn't get into that car accident? / Where do you think the USMNT would be?

Oh god, end this thread. Davies isn't back from anything.

He's a real life version of the movie vanilla sky.

RSL were missing like 5 players

He looks good. Why are you hating?

Davies would be the USMNT main strker threat if he never got in that wreck.

He could still be a viable option off the bench. Besides Dempsey I still think striker is open.

Yeah, the Revs look dangerous 2tone, and Davies is a big part of that. If I had to pick playoffs right now, I'd say they edge out NYRB and then beat Seattle, Vancouver or Dallas in the cup.

What ever happened with his lawsuit against the bar with him blaming the bartenders for giving her drinks rather than accepting blame since he both allowed her to drive and knowingly got in the car with her drunk?

Honest question.

Just looked it up, filed a 20mil lawsuit and settles for an undisclosed amount.

After their slow start the revs are clearly asserting themselves as the class of mls (at least the east).

Regarding Davies I don't think he still has it. Most of his goals are the poaching type now. Usually Nguyen, Bunbury, Agudelo, Rowe, jones do the work and put it on a silver platter for him. To me he's a better version of wondo at this point in his career. Better speed. Better finishing. Needs others to put him in a place to succeed.

I really want CD9 to be fully back but he is not quite there yet. I think a lot of what you say here is pretty accurate. I have notice that CD9 is still very creative and has done quite a bit of setting up himself. I had written CD9 off but if he continues to score goals and be creative then I see no reason we couldn't give him another look with the nats.

Another goal for Davies. Will Klinsmann call him up?

I think JK Missed the boat with his January camp. There are a lot of fringe players that would have been interesting to take a look at but as Juergen preferred calling up known commodities like Jozy and Bradley when is Juergen going to call up fringe players?

Netherlands, Germany and Guatemala are all Gold Cup warmups so that should be close to our best side. Any Friendly in October will be a WCQ warmup so that should also be our full squad. Juergen may sneak in one or two players that go on a hot streak this year but January is really the next chance for guys on the bubble.

Let's hope he uses camp cupcake for the cupcakes.

This past January Camp JK did call in a number of fringe players for both the USMNT and the U-23 Squad. Against Chile 2 players received their First Caps (Zardes, Birnbaum, Trapp)...2 more received their first caps against Panama (Kitchen, Hedges). In total 11 players participated in their first USMNT Camp for 5 others it was their 2nd.

Calling in known quantities like Bradley & Jozy is the only way to really gauge how these new players stack/rank against the current player pool. Are there players who could have been called who didn't....YES. Were some players called in who shouldn't have been....YES (Wondo). Overall JK and his staff have done a good job of giving new players a chance to impress....in camps if not necessarily in games.

Hopefully he realizes Ibarra is dead weight and can take someone like Bunbury or Neagle.
