Both Miguel ibarra and Christian Ramirez should get a serious look for the Gold Cup team this summer.


I'm all for giving new/young players a shot during the Gold Cup. And there are any number of players who deserve a shot/extensive minutes this summer....Miazga, Zimmerman, Villafana, Garza, Nagbe, Hyndmann, Roldan, Delgado, Acosta, Kitchen, Arriola, Gooch, Manneh, Agudelo, Morris, etc....

I haven't seen many Loon games so far, so don't know where Ibarra & Ramirez fit into the picture, but we need to find new blood and get them integrated into the team. Since the U-20 players aren't going to be included and many of the usual guys shouldn't be included....now is a good time to test out fringe players.

No thanks on Ibarra. He's a middling talent. We should be able to do better. I'd rather send one of the young guys who doesnt get called to U20 World CUp (you know at least one of Wright/McKinnie/Perez/Gaines wont be going). We should have Arjo, Boyd, Agudelo, Morris to take care of forwards during the Gold Cup

If you send one of those kids to the gold cup that means they Re ready right now to compete for a senior team spot. I am not sure any of them are ready. Perez had maybe two appearances and the other three were all u19 players. Klinnsman would take that risk but not Arena.

I'm sorry none of those guys should be on the gold cup team.

From what I have seen tonight, Horvath's time may be quickly approaching and it may soon be time for the next generation of keepers. I have never been fully convinced of Guzan as the starter and his play in todays match is not helping my opinion of him.

I would like to see Dom Dwyer get a chance.

I wouldnt be opposed to Horvath being the starter for the Gold Cup. He's likely going to be Brugge's goalie next year (he was brought in to take over from Butelle). If he can lead US to a gold cup title AND become Club Brugge's number one in the fall it would go along way towards him becoming an actual option

Jones out for 3-4 weeks with an MCL sprain.

Doubt we see Jones with national team again. He will not have the stamina to play in Denver and a couple of days later in Mexico City.

Surely Nagbe is seen as an 8 and not a 10

As a Galaxy fan that's good news on Jones. Those MCLs are pretty harmless. But it probably does help put a final nail in the coffin for USMNT.

As long as he's seen, I always see it as Nagbe's concertation on attacking puts Pulisic in the obligatory role of creating goals. Through finishing or in the box assists. And if people thought just giving him game time was too much at his age. Basically saying "hey, don't just run our offense, GIVE us our offense" is just a little more demanding.

Good article on Yedlin by Brian Straus. What Yedlin talks about regarding that leap in mindset he has to make is very telling. IMO, this is what will make the difference for a lot of our youngsters going forward.

For the Gold Cup part of this conversation, I would like a mix of everything. Young promising guys, experienced guys, MLS guys, overseas guys, all of the above. I'd go with:

GK: Howard, Guzan, Horvath
DF: Fabian, Brooks, CCV, Yedlin, Miazga, Besler, Cameron, Walker Zimmerman, maybe Palmer-Brown replacing someone
MF: Bradley, Pulisic, Nagbe, Kljestan, Acosta, Feilhaber, Julian Green, Gooch, and Hyndman or a U-20 WC Midfielder (Zelalem, Tyler Adams, de la Torre, Derrick Jones) or maybe the guys left off U-20 WC (Josh Perez and Weston McKennie)
FW: Dempsey, Jozy, Wood/Jordan Morris/Brooks Lennon

I think that would be an enjoyable squad for Gold Cup with some sure things and some high potential prospects.
