Lleget and Rowe are still young enough to play in the next World Cup. And they can play on the USMNT either centrally, left or right. Rowe did well on the USMNT on the left, and Lleget did well on the USMNT on the right.

Your rank of Horvath is way off base. What is your reasoning? He has played at a higher level than Steffen,Bono and Hamid. He has won a Norwegian league title, a Norwegian Cup title and just played a major role with Club Brugge in winning the Belgian title.

Like many assessments on here he had one bad game that I recall in a US jersey.

I have commented several times on here already that Parks should be a regular starter from 20 minutes against Bolivia. Not saying he will not be great but a lot of people need to tap the breaks a little and not judge based on 1 game.

Now after 3-5 games I say you probably start to get a decent understanding (not a final decision and depending on opponents.)

Someone that fits this category for me is Hamid. There are several games now where he just doesn't appear to have it. Not saying he never will but right now the minutes need to go to someone else.

Bono is about to be on his way to Club Brugge to displace Horvath. I like Horvath but Bono is better right now.

That is just speculation as of now. Horvath has played in 5 Champions League qualifiers, 4 Europa League qualifiers, 6 Europa League group games (winning the group), 2 Europa League Rnd of 32 and the coach is still thinking they need an older keeper with more experience. Bono does not fit that description.

Horvath is a good keeper. I hope he gets back to his best. But right now Bono is better.

Of the guys you listed Gyau (if he can stay healthy) and Akale (vision and skill on the ball) really catch my interest. I'd also list in a year or two the U-20 George Acosta as a #10 type player. He's in Argentina developing but has quite an eye for the pass. And of course Andrew Carleton, depending.

Watched the Steffen one and the Weah one later too. All the ones I've seen are very well done.

Don't you think those videos were a bit too much? I mean, we should be making videos for players who have actually accomplished something for the USMNT. Like qualifying for a World Cup perhaps. Not before.... There shouldn't be any "rising" videos at all.

I think these videos are a great platform to show that the US Men's program is moving in the right direction. This is a great time US men's soccer. We are experiencing a culture shift where young players are understanding what it takes to become top players. We have young players that are more talented and ambitious than ever. These videos are also great because they show how young players are scouted and developed into world class players. US men's program has always struggled with effectively scouting and developing young players and these videos are laying out blueprints for how this country can develop top players.

These kids don't seem content with being MLS all stars, qualifying for WCs, and desperately defending until being knocked out in round of 16. These kids aspire to play courageously with quality, be regular Champs League players and to compete to win WC trophies. We are embarking on our golden generation up to this pt and their journeys should be celebrated.

Disclaimer: Roldan has no business in this group lol.

The concept of the videos I thought was good but the Pulisic video at least I felt was missing something. It felt very "corporate," which I suppose is because USSF produced it but still, would like to see a more organic vibe about it.

But we're not moving in the right direction, at least in the sense of just how good our starting 11 is. Our current best starting 11 is the worst in the entire 2009-2018 period...
