Drop Martino and replace him with Harkes


Like Steve Sampson in '98, I made a conscious albeit controversial decision to drop Harkes from my squad.

dont make the same mistake twice @skangles. To this day he's one of the best, if not best central midfielders we've ever had. Martino can't even lace his boots.

Cut Cobi and permanently take away his broadcasting license....


Haha, yes. Having heard him in broadcasts for decades, I can safely say that Cobi's not the most.... um.... intelligent person.

Also, fuck John Harkes, that piece of shit.

take feilhaber out for fabian and i think altidore starts over wood because altidore off the bench is not a threat but i think wood coming off the bench for dempsey or altidore is a lot better to have as an option

Agree inserting Fabian (when healthy) is a no brainer. However, I could see Dempsey being the guy coming off the bench in the very near future.

When everyone is healthy/available there are going to be some interesting/difficult player selections for Arena to make.

Jozy, Wood, Demspey, Nagbe, Pulisic, Fabian, Bradley, Lichaj, Brooks, Cameron, Yedlin, howard, Lletget, Zardes, Morris, Arriola, Gooch, Green, Acosta, Villafana, Birnbaum, Miazga, CCV, Gonzalez, Zimmerman, Chandler, Guzan, Horvath, Bingham,

Yeah I'm ready to put Pulisic in our all time best 11 + 3 subs.

Jozy, Cobi?? You're on crack.

Jones is the all time appearance leader and Altidore may soon follow that. One of my all time favorite players is McBride but the form Altidore is coming into these days is better than McBride at his best. Who would you put, Wynalda? That's crack my friend.

Just because the all time squad is filled with average players doesn't mean they aren't there. Earnie Stewart got left out, Joe-Max Moore as well; John harkes, brad friedel. All those guys can play too. But it was my call and yea the all time Cap leader is gonna play.

Wynalda? He blew ass. God that guy was awful. Joe-Max? Sweet Jesus, what's wrong with you?

No way on Bradley either.

I'd find room for Jermaine Jones and Harkes in our top 15. But I'd accept push-back with those two since Jones missed 2010 and cock-boy missed 98.

And I think reasonable people could disagree on Friedel/Howard.

What you're really saying is we barely have any acceptable players at all in USA soccer history. I mean you may not like these guys but they are the best we've had. I agree, it would be nice to have a striker who can get in behind and hold the ball up and make plays 1v1, if we've had that guy let me know. Dynamic monster in midfield? All our historic players have holes in their games it's just the way it's been. Hopefully in 20 years none of these guys is even close to the best ever XI.
