He is so smooth with both feet. Dribbling, passing, and just combing the ball. He is really good on both wings and I would really like to see him in his natural position.

It's time to see him with the USMNT. Hopefully by WCQ in September and October he will get a chance.

On another note: Zardes is really maturing as a player this season. Looking forward to seeing this more mature and dangerous player for the USMNT.

Wow! What three goals in this game. Agudelo has it. He is so acrobatic. But his attitude is not there. What a finish.

I feel bad for Legit. He's easily one of the 40 best American players, but for some reason just doesn't fit in the system that Klinsy wants. Meanwhile, his brick-footed teammate plays every single game for USMNT. Weird.

I guess alll I can hope for is f#cknuts finally figures out he's passable in the high up forward position (not a winger for F#ckssake.

Actually I think Lleget would fit in really well with most of the systems/formations that the US currently use. He's a player that can play anywhere in the attack for a 4-3-3, 4-2-3-1, or 4-3-2-1. Once JK realizes that the "Old Guard" (Orozco, Evans, Wondo, Beckerman, Jones & Dempsey) can't cut it anymore and we finally start using our younger talent I think he'll get his chances. He may not be a starter, but his versatility and skill (technical & tactical) could make him an Ideal option to come off the bench.
The biggest hurdles he's got to overcome are consistent playing time with his club (he's got a lot of competition there) and the reluctance of JK to move on from the "Old Guard". I am really looking forward to the days ahead when our 23 player squad is something like:

Unfortunately I think we're still a couple/three years away from seeing this as the core of the team. I think JK will continue to lean heavily on the OLD guys until the wheels fall off.

I kind of see him some way as Dempsey. When he was used on the left at Fulham. Then right. Then also with USA. Until his older days he was moved centrally and more of an attacking role. But alnost same qualities with less of a nack for goal and not that much of a fighter, or we havent seen yet.

I don't know why people label JK as someone who's unwilling to give youngsters or new people a chance.

Pulisic is not old.

Green wasn't old.

Zelalem wasn't called to camps.

Hyndman was called up and played a game for Nats.

He WANTS to call up these guys because he thinks they're skilled and trustworthy and the nguyens failhabers, SK's etc those are NOT.

Could it because he sees them in the MLS? I don't know.

Legit hasn't had any trouble w/ PT w/ the Galaxy and won't for the foreseeable future.

Legit like a Dempsey? Legit anywhere in the attack in a Klinsy formation? You guys are high. Legit is midfielder and that's his best position. He ain't no forward. Not to be gay or anything (not there's anything wrong with that), but he's ripped like a MoFo. There ain't nothing soft about him.

I meant it by his ability to play on both wings, and at a good level. And his natural center position. Fancy dribbles here and there. Good with both feet. Dempsey was used on both wings. Then later centrally. Or not? Also had some dribble to his game.
