I can easily say that Yedlin and Brooks have more respect from peers than Bedoya and have the quality to be on the field.
At wing back, I believe Shaq Moore, Antoine Robinson, and Ashton Gotz have more to offer than Acosta.
At striker, The kid ripping up second tier in Holland, Wright, Gaines, Boyd should get looks,


You could find someone other than Bedoya to be captain who is part of the long term plan, but it isn't Yedlin or Brooks.

I'm saying Adams has that leadership, Miazga has it, and of course Pulisic who isn't in the team this time. Those would be my choices going forward into the next cycle. For this game, maybe Danny Williams or Bedoya.

Horvath in goal???

I don't know if Adams has a higher ceiling that Mckennie, Gonzalez, Stanko.
I also think D Willl will be still be at a high level in 4 yrs.
Bedoya shouldn't be taking minutes away from better player younger players who the program need to develop.

The roster is blahh...too many 2nd -3rd tier fringe guys. If you're going to bring in quality youth, bring in some quality Vets to pair them with...instead of saddling them with mediocre talent... Not an issue in the back line...we have Brooks, but midfield and forward is a problem.

Just seeing the roster, The biggest takeaway for me is the game is just window dressing. The real value will be the competition in training to see if the new starlets can surpass some perennial fringe guys. That would be the best case scenario.... to see guys like Adams, McKennie, Miazga and Sargent...knock a few guys out of future consideration...guys like Bedoya and Ream. I'd take Sargent over any of the the forwards brought in...Dwyer is decent, but Sapong and Swag can't keep their heads in the game.

I would have loved to have seen Wood and Sargent.

My worst fear is we see Bedoya as MB jr...with a dish rag disjointed midfield...and few minutes for guys we really want to see.

I hope Adams, McKennie, Miazga and Sargent blow the doors off these guys in training and wind up as starters.

Has Bedoya already been selected captain?

I would have made Brooks the captain in a heartbeat...

Friendlies are nearly always window dressing.

I doubt Bedoya plays. He is only there due to the Cameron concussion issues and Gonzalez having a game Thursday night. I can see a point where he cones up "limp" Friday morning and Gonzalez shows up to play.

In regards to Adams I think he has as high ceiling as any of the younbmidfielders. His biggest issue will be exactly what position will he play, as he is able to play more positions than the others.

This. I get it's the Dutch second division, but he's doing great there. We know what guys like Agudelo, Dwyer and Sapong bring to the table already, and they can all be called in for a January camp cupcake (which we should have with multiple friendlies) if we really want to do that.

@bjelks- mckennie has a European passport, like Pulisic and stanko. Adams does not. It's the kids mentality I like, he's a tiger out there and hates to lose. Jermaine Jones Jr.

And he's a functional Jermaine Jones too, as in he tries to affect the game the same way Mr. Bender against Portugal tried to do every time out.
