I haven't seen a post about him in awhile or ever, so I wasn't going to search through the archives and since I hate that team from Boregon I wasn't going to put it in their team specific thread.

But I have always had a soft spot in my heart for this kid and still think he has a space in the national team if he can be more consistent and can score. He is only 23. I remember he ripped it up as a youth and was highly touted. He has been compared to Chicharito but I do not think he is even in Chicharito's league at this point in his career but I would like to see him eventually become our new Brian McBride, if he can find that consistency.

In the interview posted below, he said he is not even in his prime which is a great attitude because he is still young and still has a lot to show. He just needs to be put in the right opportunity.

I was excited about him when he was called up for the 2013 pre Gold Cup roster.

While he might not have developed into a MNT player (you're right he's still young), I think he has been good in MLS and I don't understand why he's on his fourth team in six years. That's not a glowing endorsement of a young player. Not sure why he keeps getting the boot.

While McInerney isn't old, but he isn't exactly young either. Not writing the kid off yet as he could be a late bloomer and provide something in the future (Gomez), he is going to have an uphill battle. There is a lot of quality young forwards/attackers working their way up the pecking order (Pulisic, Morris, Rubin, Kiesewetter, Perez, Tall, Wright, Scott, Lennon, etc...). These guys are younger and arguably more talented. Guess only time will tell who ultimately develops into our best options are.

I always thought he sucked. Well it's not that he sucked, but he didn't have an upside. Felt like one of those youth players who was never going to be better than mediocre as a pro.

I think he is a clinical striker that if he can put away his chances when he is given them then he might have a future. I see him as more talented than Wondo and Wondo has certainly got his opportunities with the national team.

If he's anywhere as good as Wondo in the MLS then he'll have a solid USMNT career.

Decent player who was yet again overhyped by the media a few years back. Christ McIntyre and Carlisle were calling him the next Donovan. Jack is nowhere close to Donovan.

Still think his chapter with the national team isn't done. I do agree he has come at a time where we have a plethora of attackers with like or more ability than him. So he really has to find his scoring touch but he is a clinical striker and if he can get service he can score around 10 goals.
