McKennie is our 6 (he doesn't do enough for us as an 8)

A lineup I'd love to see in September:

----Sietbachu
Amon--Pulisic-Parks-Lleget
----McKennie
Robinson-Miazga-Brooks-Moore/Yed
----Steffan

Still can't project Siebatcheu.

What I hope to see

---Sargent---
Amon---Pulisic--Gyau
---Adams--Mckennie-
Robinson-Brooks-Miazga--Yedlin
----Steffen---

Amon May be with the u20's.

By September we'll have a new coach (hopefully not named Sarachan). The new coach is going to want to re-evaluate their player pool based on the style of play & formation that they desire to run.
It's going to be very difficult to determine what the call-ups are going to be, let alone what the starting XI may look like.
We all should expect a number of the 2018 cycle veterans to be called back into camp for the new coaching staff to see first hand; we shouldn't expect to see any New faces called up. I expect there to be roughly 30 players called for the Sept. Friendlies.

Who I expect (not who I want) to see called up:
Keepers: (4) Guzan, Steffen, Hamid, Gonzalez/Horvath
Defense: (10) Yedlin, Brooks, Cameron, Villafana, Miazga, Moore, Robinson, Lichaj, CCV/EPB/Parker/Ream
Midfield: (11) Bradley, McKennie, Adams, Lletget, Parks, Pulisic, Saief, Arriola, Weah, Green, Nagbe
Strikers: (5) Jozy, Sargent, Dwyer, Zardes, Novakovich

The new manager is going to want to know what players can contribute right now, and which are more of a project.

There is nothing wrong with that list. I mean that's pretty much the player pool right now. I would add Gyau and Wood.

I think we can do without Villafana on def.

In midfield, we can let Bradley, Arriola, Lttetget, and Nagbe go.
DWil, Morales, Gyau, Amon, Gall, Hyndman, and Scott should be available.

At striker Jozy, Dwyer, and Zardes, thank you for your service.
Insert Wood, T Boyd, and reach out to Siebatchu.

I forgot Wood, and could easily see him being called up. However, considering his poor club performance last season, he may be trying to break into a new club.
I'd love for Gyau to make it back into consideration, but I don't see it happening by the September break.

You still need a backup @ Left Back. Neither D. Acosta or Farfan are ready yet for the Sr. National Team. That leaves Villafana or Lichaj. I went with the younger of the 2.
While I'd love to move on from Bradley & Nagbe, I don't see it happening until after the 2019 Gold Cup.
Even though I'm a DC United fan, I'm not a fan of Arriola at the NT level. IMO he's too 1 Dimensional, and has been overtaken by others.
I still believe that Lletget will contend through the 2022 cycle for a place in the 23. I don't think he'll make the final roster, but he's likely to be in the preliminary 30.
I like D. Williams, and think he'll be back in the picture for a little while, but not by Sept. He's coming back from a season ending injury and isn't likely to be back to match speed yet.
IMO Morales is done with the NT. I was a fan of his, but I think the new manager will side with either Bradley/Williams for their Experience, or McKennie/Adams for their youth/energy.
Amon, Gall, Hyndman & Scott will all be in the picture, but I can't see a new manager jumping that deep into the pool for their first Camp.
I admit I forgot about Wood. See my comments above.
Boyd is another player I think is done with the NT. I may be wrong, but he's going to have a hard road.
Siebatchu should be in the picture, but again I don't see a new manager going this deep for their first camp.


The final stretch of the English league season is upon us, with several Americans on the verge of relegation with their teams.
