I think at this point we reached our goal, won the group, advanced to Semis, Mexico lost 7-0 nil and we are playing one of the best teams in the world if not the best, my would have a different approach if we were playing Mexico or Ecuador but we are not- I would rather see us lose 3 or 4 nil while trying to take the game to them, then us lose 2 nil and we are sitting back playing defense.

I agree with alot of the posts on here. I would love to see us pressure the hell out of them for 30 mins try and wear them down and play physical, push for an early goal and lead into half, THEN play defense. But what the heck lets go for a win...

- Zardes -
Dempsey -
Fab - Nagbe - Zusi
- Bradley -
Besler - Brooks - Cam - Yedlin
- Guzan

I love KB but he is going to be a step behind in this game, If we get up bring in Kitchen, and hell maybe Beckerman as well. Stinks woods is out, he would have been a big help.

USA USA USA


I like the line up, but best option would be Fab at LB to contain Messi

---- Zardes ----
Pulisic- Dempsey - Zusi
- Bradley - Dreds
Fab- Brooks - Cam - Yedlin
- Guzan

I'll take it I guess, but everyone was feeling that we're best suited in a 4 4 2, correcT?

No I think we are best suited in a 4-3-3 personally. But a lot of that depends on where Messi lines up and spends most of his time.

a 4-3-3 even if he lines up inside will push him out wider. Which would be good. a 4-4-2 will see him spending time in the middle. I don't like that at all.

I actually don't mind that lineup. Not my first choice as I'd put Bradley at DM and Nagbe at CM and take out Becks. But I don't think Becks will be as out of place in this game as he would against others. Speed kills Becks, Argentina isn't the most athletic team, but very skilled. I also like Bradley at DM this game because of his ability to hit the long passes, will be key for quick attacks. Becks doesn't have that.

That would be terrible, imo.

The best thing we have going has been the chemistry between Cameron, Brooks, and Bradley, why mess that up to get Beckerman on the field?

And I mentioned in the tactics thread but I think we are best suited for a 3-5-2, which would probably play more like a 5-3-2 against Argentina. But at least Fab and Yedlin could get fwd with more coverage.

Extensive lurking saw that this is said to be the starting XI barring any late knocks. Hold on to your seats fellas!

In all honesty I don't mind it. Would rather see Nagbe for Zusi and MB for Becks. But more so Nagbe. Beckerman doesn't worry me quite as much as it does most here.

I honestly thought, in my humble opinion

that we dodged a couple of bullets with Beckermen as a late game sub in the paraguay game (down a man) and in the Ecuador game (down a man again).

beckerman is a specialist in making tackles at dribbles into space, or cutting out passes. Not so good harrying and harrassing in man marking. He's not molasses but he is slower, and his close down time was evident when Montero started occuyping the central space.

I think JK dodged one there. Nagbe would have been the more natural choice, especially since we needed speed and possessoin (becks has it too, don't get me wrong, but nagbe can dribble his way out.)

However in a 11 v 11 game providing we don't get exposed too much. Becks should be a good cover. "should" fingers cross.. once again just my opinion.

So if the purported lineup is true, I don't see it as a 4-3-3 it looks more like a 4-4-2 with Zusi and Zardes out wide.

I quit. I'm done. I can't watch this game. Seeing Wondo in there. It's just a disaster waiting to happen. By all means if he is brilliant, reply to this message and show everyone. I just can't.

I QUIT.
