ThE Us better be ready to win both games in October. I have a feeling the personnel will be slightly different. Yedlin should be back, could Other teenagers get a call up i.e. Adams or Mckennie? Maybe Wright?

Concacaf ref again fucking garbage.The boys had to tell him about that 2nd yellow its pathetic! Tie is the bare minimum result but my GAWD we are garbage. We LUCKED OUT in that match so i cant defend anyone in this team apart from wood and arriola who understand whats it like to play in CONCACAF.

I dont care who we bring next cycle but this teams needs to get younger.Bring in our U17/U20/U23. If youre good enough fuck age.
Build a playstyle we look so lost out there. Arent our youth teams playing a 4-3-3? So start with that and the youth and build from there. UNACCEPTABLE

Anyone who thinks we'll be calling in guys without any senior level caps are off their rocker. Bruce is gonna pick the same guys as always, because he thinks experience is more important than talent in these last two games.
COYB!!

I think there's a chance that Nagbe was hurt by about the 35', and Arena kept him on until 73'. So in a 4-2-3-1, Arena left a hurt winger on. Brilliant.
BUT
Our NT is so hard to like. We have quite a few guys who seem to be saving energy, and Nagbe could very well be one of those people.

On the upside, Ali Krieger is looking good for a female athlete in her 30's

Arriola got 30 minutes in these two games. But he's more of a "gamer" than most people we have.

If game 9 and 10 were tomorrow and I had to use these 26 players, I'd make my XI out of the people who bring it every game, even if I'd have to play Puli a little bit out of position to a degree, and I'm forced to play Lichaj and McCarty:

...........Morris....Wood
................Pulisic
Lichaj Acosta McCarty Arriola
........Ream Besler Cameron
.................Guzan

Bench magic if we're losing: Dempsey

Never said they would be brought in. But I agree I doubt we see any new blood.

This was an ugly, ugly game. Regardless of our injuries (Yedlin, Brooks, etc...) our player pool is better than the performances given these past 2 games. I wasn't a fan of bringing Bruce back as a coach due to his tendency to over value Experienced Players (30+) and under valuing player form. That being said it's past time that Arena shake up the player pool/formation....

Strikers: There is Absolutely no reason to ever see Wondo called into a camp again.
Midfield: McCarty is the same as Wondo. It's time to bring D. Williams back into the fold. We need some wide options....Gooch, Saief, Wright, Manneh.
Defense: It's time to move Fabian back to LB. Beasley, Villafana & Ream are not the solution. Chandler needs to be brought back into the fold....he's still a better option than Zusi.

Unfortunately we're going to see basically the exact same squad in October as was called up for the Sept. Qualifiers. At this point if we don't win the next 2 games we're in a lot of trouble and the entire USSF leadership needs to be fired. But that's not going to ever happen.

I've been saying this same shit for the last 2 years!

Bring in the youngsters: Timothy Tillman, Wright, Sargent, Weah, Mckennie, Robinson, Toljan, Saief, Andrew Carleton

Also want to see Johannsson and D Williams

And for the love of god find out if Robert Kennedy Nunes was born in Maimi....

Have you played CB? That is a VERY tough decision on whether to squeeze but stay standing, or to leave your feet and try to stuff the shot. Besler chose not to leave his feet. Besler is not a bum, man. He has never shown laziness before.

I don't think our player pool is. There is a psychological problem going on here with about half the squad. Their psychological ability counts as part of their overall quality, and we have some C, D, F scores happening.

USSF has been a dumpster fire for a while now. It needed to be torn down and built back up again years ago. It should not be possible for Gulati to reign without facing a vote of no-confidence.
SUM (soccer united marketing) is a massive leach that needs to be killed with fire.
Youth clubs need to be incentivized to feed to MLS/academies.

I seriously do not know if I can watch in October. I'm going to take a couple of weeks off. I hate half of our players, our coach, our federation and our league.
I'm melting down here.

If you watch the replay of this match, track Nagbe from about 35' to 73'. Either he gets hurt or quits, but he should not have been on the field.

Peacing out for a few weeks, at least. Take care guys...

all that matters is qualifying win our last 2 and were in even with 4 points most likely a playoff spot. I think we're trying to find out identity were just a few players from filling in the puzzle and lets not forget Arena hasn't had the full squad healthy yet once he does it will be easier to figure out which lineup will be the most effective. Like I said our last 2 games are the easiest of the Hex Panama at home will be a must win and I think we will get a result and away at T&T should be a rough one but I think we will pull of the 3/pts. I knew this game would be tough today away and playing in the daytime heat!!!
