I think it is WCQ appearances and goals

Danny Williams, Greg Garza, Eric Lichaj, Matt Miazga continue to get overlooked.

Continue to waste roster spots on over the hill or inadequate players that add no value.

I think Danny Williams time has come and gone.

Garza I am a little surprised by, but he is one deminsional. As a back up option awfully nice to have a guy who can play multiple positions of the bench.

Lichaj best player on a team that barely survived relegation in the championship. Plus his time has passed as well.

Miazga good case to make that he got overlooked. But with Arena you know he is going to be partial to Gonzo. I do not have a problem with that as he has more experience in Azteca.

No problem with the elders being called in on a 27 man roster. I think Rimando, Beasley, Besler or Ream, and Wood do not stay on the roster. He was only playing to help Hamburg avoid relegation otherwise he probably would have missed time due to his knee. Bet he was called in so USMNT doctors can look at him.

I agree with you on pretty much all of this. Miazga will be important down the road not sure he is one of best four CB's at the moment. Lichaj is the only real slight as Chandler has not been able to show much at international level. Garza and Williams are decent squad options and not that big of misses. I think Klijestan and Lichaj were the biggest slights on the roster.

This may not be the reason, but Williams may have been omitted because he is still playing club games as of today. The battle of American player vs American coach in the Prem is 0-0 in the 31st.

Do we realize that Bedoya and McCarty are older and play in a lower league and less competitive team than Danny Williams?

What good is Gonzo's experience if he's too slow or clumsy to defend at a high level?

How come no one holds Bradley accountable for being useless, but we all go after J. Jones?

What purpose do Beasley, Ream, Zusi, Besler serve?

Yes.
I don't know.
I do.
Those are four separate cases, but I'd hope it's DMB and Zusi: short-term emergencies only; and Ream and Besler: CB depth

Williams may be looking for a new club now that Reading is going to be back in the Championship. He's in his prime, he should be playing in a top league. Miazga too needs to sort out his club future, that should be his first priority. We'll see both again if they remain healthy and continue their current form. Garza and Lichaj are decent, but we're really talking backup or even third string spots here. First Klinsmann and now Arena are obviously seeing value that DMB brings to the squad, even as just a presence in camp and the locker room, that warrant him being included in a backup role.

I doubt they replace him. Already have 6 other fullbacks in yedlin, villafana, Zusi, ream, Garda DMB. Throw in Cameron and you're good. Probably won't call in anyone unless another one or two get hurt.

Who else hopes we don't see Bedoya unless we have a lead and he's subbed in for relief?
