So exciting seeing pullisic, Arriola, wood, stanko, fab on the field.
Could you imagine if instead of 5, we had 11 world class players and they played on the field at the same time?

Can you imagine if instead of 5 world class players, we had one? Because that's where we're at. Some of these guys might very well turn into world class players, but we have no world class players on this team. Just a good number of really good players.

Think I saw adms in the stands with his Mexico jersey and USA hat but then I realized he's too old.

He is definitely upset that Canada is winning at halftime.

That was great fun to watch with the pressure off. I thought Jozy Altidore really enjoyed playing today is starting to look healthy and explosive again. I can't wait to see him and Bob Wood bully the Mexicans on a cold November day in Columbus. What soccer dreams are made of.

Missed the game. But looks like Pulisic and Kljestan were dynamic yet again. Jozy looking rejuvenated with all of the young talent around him.

Overall can't complain to much. I thought that the tempo & energy was off in the first half, but considering there were a lot of players who haven't played all that often together it could explain they the chemistry of off a bit.
Jozy & Wood did well together. Both played physically and combined well with each other and their teammates. When Morris came in the team didn't miss a beat. Great that we're seeing depth at the attack w/out having to change how we play.
Pulisic played well on both sides of the ball. Still gets pushed around too often, but he should be alright as he matures over the next couple of years. Was a bit unlucky not to have scored again tonight.
The quality & depth of our CBs paired with the versatility of Cameron & Fabian is a huge advantage for this team heading into the Hex. We still need to work on the depth of the outside backs, but we at least some coverage.
Only thing I would have liked to have seen would have been Nagbe getting minutes but I can accept getting Stanko a run out instead.

I was a little concerned with the Jones, Dempsey, & Zardes injuries effecting team chemistry heading into the Hex, but I'm much more confident about the team after today's performance. I also like to think that we've seen the end of Wondo and potentially the end of Orozco & Beckerman.

Thats right on the money biggest thing for me is starting to see the 23 become a little more clearer I liked what our depth players brought to the table. Yeah its hard to tell with klinsmann sometimes. I think at the very least wondo has been passed no sub appereances in either game. Beckerman did start the SVG game so he might have a backup CDM role in the 23 for the future. Orozco is hard to tell every time I rule him out he makes it back to the 23.

We need a leftback. Lichaj hasn't ever got in good with Klinsmann. I have zero idea what's up with Jorge Villafana. If we find a solid leftback option, the attacking options are ridiculous. Fabian on one wing, Pulisic on the other.

Gonzalez and Birnbaum further proved why Brooks and Geoff Cameron are the no 1 center back pairing. They can actually pass out the back.

Pulisic is ready. I hope Tuchel doesn't bury him. This kid is lightning.

Kljestan's performance is exactly what we all wanted. He's finally influential. Klinsmann praised the hell out of him. Rain is shedding tears of joy.

Arriola is a gamer. He's gonna be around the team for a long time.

I caught the second half...great to see a mellow stroll like that...guys playing free and easy. Pulisic adds so much to the mix...super smart, always making the right run or breaking a guy down to get a cross in...just a fantastic player...energizes everybody around him and elevates their play.

Nice to see Jozy pick his game up...beautiful touch on his first goal. He has real competition now...hopefully he can stay healthy for an extended period of time. He's active and engaged...great to see.

I like how quickly Stache moves the ball...compliments Puli's game so well.

I liked seeing Stanko...plays quick, good on the ball.

Can't wait to drop Pulisic on Mexico...the new Mexicutioner...

Pulisic is a beast he should definitely go the full 90 vs Mexico. I see Klejestan getting the start also in that game. A great question would also be who will start at goalie vs Mexico ?? Or will JK switch again 1 goalie one game and another the other game.

I still like Howard as first choice...Guzan sits deep...I think Howard has a better command of his box.
