Green and Pulisic should pull the strings, maybe that's what you were referring to.

In which I'm sorry I agree whole heartedly.

I'm sorry, I meant I think Green would be a better option at attacking mid than Nagbe and he should get a look there.
I do believe that Pullisic is our most important and best player and he is more effective on the wing.

I think we should look at calling in Amobi Okugo for the friendlies.

After not being able to consistently make it in MLS, he has gone on trial with 3 Bundesliga team SC Preußen Münster.

Since apparently 3 Bundesliga > MLS, I'm pretty sure this means that if he lands a contract, he's by default better than any option we have in MLS. Any thoughts???

So Dave sarachan has been using a 4-3-3 and I don't see him changing that now. The front three for the Bolivia friendly should be Pulisic - Sargent - Amon? Or does that change again in two weeks? Bottom line is our two stud players will be playing together for the first time in that game if I'm not mistaken. Throw your third attacker in at your discretion.

There is a rumor that Keaton Parks is going to be called up.

The squad above is JUST for the 1st game. For the 2nd and 3rd game Sarachan said he is going to drop several of the above and add in several new players who weren't called up (probably Jon Amon, and others-- Joe Gyau?! Probably not).

Best fucking roster I've ever seen. Would've done:

Tillman for Corona
Johannsson for Rubin

Saief injured ?

What I hope the replacements will be (not what I think Sarachan will do):
Gyau, Amon, Siabetchu, Shaq Moore, Zack Steffen, AlfredoMorales (deserves another look), and Yedlin.

The lineup I'd love to see:

--Sargent
Gooch-McKennie-Pulisic(freerole)-Rubin
--KeatonParks--
Robinson-Miazga-CCV-Lichaj
--Bono---

Weah and Julian Green can get 2nd half replacing Gooch + Rubin. Novakovich replaces Sargent in 2nd half. Olusunde replaces Lichaj in 2nd half (give people a chance). EPB replaces CCV in 2nd half.

Anyone like Coach Navi8132's selections?

Though I'd love to see Lleget, Rowe, Manneh, and BLennon get chances again (unless they're injured)

Johannsson's hurt (again). A bit surprised at Gooch, Olosunde and Green being there. Gooch needs a new club, Olosunde needs a loan and Green seems to have plateaued.

Best roster selection in a while. I would rather not see:

1. Villafana-we don't need to see him give Robinson a chance at 90-

2. Corona-has skill but man he has never shown well for the Nats not sure what new he is going to show us

3. Lichaj--for me he should have been included with the last cycle for depth-at this point though I would rather see Shaq M

Not many complaints...of course I would like to have seen Kyle Scott on the logic that you can include Olasunde without any first team experience.

Still, I think it is an interesting take...just hope he doesn't go out to try and win the game instead of evaluating.

Navi's team selection looks likely but as for me, let's have some fun!!!

Bono
EPB, CCV, Miazga
Adams, Parks, McKennie, Robinson
Pulisic, Novo, Weah

Playing Adams as a wingback allows him to get forward. Parks can hold down the center allowing McKennie to be more box to box. With wingbacks Pulisic and Weah can move inside with more freedom.

Adams just got injured, knee injury. I wonder if Lleget or Rowe can take his place?
