Yedlin could flop over to LB and be our best option there by far. Especially if you have have a player like Adams, who might be a better overall option at RB. He doesn't have Yedlin's high end speed but the rest of his game is further along than Yedlin's at a comparable age. It makes sense if he has a higher ceiling than Yedlin at RB.

Why stack guys up at RB when a couple of these players are versatile enough to play the other side.

Adams is way more athletic than Acosta. And his passing range is also better. I like Acosta, but he definitely disappeared for the USMNT and Dallas. I wouldn't be opposed to seeing him at LB.


Yea exactly, Adams gives you what Acosta gives and THEN some. Acosta also having the benefit of being younger.

Shaq Moore also gaining momentum. Could see Adams move to an #8 for the USMnT

I would rather Pulisic not be called in, if we are bringing in young guys, Portugal can literally t off on Pulisic.

Better to see new faces and who can hang at this level,. Let CP continue with his club

Since we're building a team, we need to see how these players interact with Pulisic on the field. If Pulisic isn't there, then we won't get enough information.

I agree with both sides here. Pulisic has played a ton over the last year, may not be the worst thing for both him and team for a break. But against Portugual he will not get Concacaf treatment, plus if he wants a big payday this is a team you want to play for promoting yourself.

Heard he did very well. Good to see quality depth starting to emerge at both RB and LB.

Really happy for him, he gambled on himself and was willing to start out in a lower league in a foreign country, work hard to move up the ladder and earn his minutes. It looks like it may pay dividends. When was the last time an American started/played in La Liga before him?

Nah Oguchi Onyewu with Malaga a few years ago was the last American to start in La Liga.

Small write up from NBC Sports. Good to see him get the start and now lets see what he can do over the whole season.
