we need to play with three CB's. our outside backs are all shit. Nver had a good LB, and hate to break it to ya Robinson ain't the answer. Took Yedlin all of 2 mins to lose his marker once coming in. And for some reason julian green was out on the sideline marking the crosser on that goal. Three CB's and two CDM's that can defend, and outside mids who are free from alot of defensive duties. fuck all our outside backs.

Liked some things from Amon, but he was also really naive, which I think comes from being 19 and playing in low level league. I'm sure some of the things he tried would work in the Danish league, but not against reasonable international comp.

And our wingers have to learn it's a two way position.

I do think Robinson is the answer. Having a bad game happens with young defenders. He has had two really good games against France and Mexico. Two not so good games. But he played Brazil much better in the second half. And quite frankly Saief didn't do anything to help him against Colombia. I am very positive about Robinson. Yedlin hasn't been good lately, but he will bounce back. I liked what I saw from Cannon defensively. But don't be surprised to see Sergino Dest in this team in the next couple of years.

I think Yedlin is serviceable. Moore and Cannon are promising. Moore is more experience and playing at a higher level and Bello and Dest are waiting in the wings as well.

Watching Trapp, Sweat, Long, and Delgado is living proof that anybody off the street can play in MLS and on US the national team.


Your hatred of MLS rears it's head again. MLS were just as shitty as the non-MLS guys. Not sure why you hate your countries domestic league but you hate it with a passion the completely blinds you.

Cannon actually has more first team experience than Moore, who is in and out of the starting XI for a 16th place team in the middling Segunda Liga.

•Wasn't impressed with Amon, he does that weird thing where he lifts his arms above his head to shake a defender, doesn't do anything, slows down and makes a slow decision.

•Trapp was on the starting XI, didn't even know he played. Guy is worthless

•Delgado sucks (insert Roldan on his jersey and it's the same person)

•Acosta is average, ball bounces too much off the surface on his first touch...no thanks

• Thst left back Sweat or whatever his name is sucked the most, backwards passing dude.

• Yedlin has fallen off! My boy Sergino Dest now on the second team.

• Bradley, later bro

•Worst of all the coach sucks and wasted all these friendlies.

1) Unfortunately we found out that Amon is just ok.
2) Ben Sweat is awful. Give me Lichaj at LB, Beasley, Garza, Villafana, anyone but Sweat again.
3) The distance between our A team and B team is gigantic.
4) Weah does NOT work on the wing.
5) Berhalter will be coach and we have a permenant Trapp captain in the #6 role. With Adams and McKennie in front.

Did anyone watch the Mexico-Chile match? I saw most of the second half. The standard was so much better than how the US has been playing it's not even funny. I don't care if we beat them in a friendly a few weeks ago, Mexico is a lot better than us right now. How many of our players would actually make the Mexico squad? Pulisic, Yedlin (not like he played the last two games, but normally), and maybe Brooks or Miazga. Wood if he regained his form. I guess McKennie too. But the other 18 would not even be close. Bradley, Trapp, Robinson, Delgado, etc. would not get a game in on any Liga MX team.

And this whole search for a manager has been a complete joke. The whole past year has been a waste. Will watching these games on film.be really that helpful for Berhalter in evaluating the players? He's going to go off how they play for their club teams and how they look in NT training sessions. Nothing has been gained by Sarachan's year in charge, and Berhalter could have had a whole.year already building the team (or we could have moved on to someone else and given him plenty of time for next WC and Berhalter done poorly.

And hearing that Tata is going to the Mexican NT just adds insult to injury. Or Hiddink going to coach China. Or Bielsa at Leeds. And why not Moyes or Osorio or van Marwijk? All of those guys are just so much more qualified than any American coach at this point that it's not even funny. Berhalter is the best American manager right now and could probably make it at, say, a 2.Bundesliga team or even a bottom-feeder Bundesliga team but we can do better (hire him after he does that). We need new ideas because the program is stale and needs to be totally revamped after the debacle. We need to not play like an MLS team, this is the big leagues so let's get a manager who actually has experience at that level. Unbelievable.

I don't know why you or anyone goes out of their way to defend a league and federation that intentionally puts a bad product on the field game after game because of politics. If you can't see the difference in the old mls vets and the euro guys or younger mls guys, you're blind. We keep trying the same crap over and over getting the same shitty results and homers like you apologize or make excuses for it.

And if these games have shown us anything, it's that game experience doesn't matter if you're playing in shitty competition and the talent isn't there.

Those guys I mentioned can't play in any league but mls and we have them in nt games

One thing is certain...if we play like that November 15th we may lose by double digits!

Based on what I saw, if I were in charge my verdict on who deserves another chance would be as follows:

Steffen - yes
Guzan - yes
Yedlin - yes
Cannon - yes
Miazga - yes
Brooks - yes
CCV- yes
Long - no
Sweat - no
Trapp - no
Bradley - no
Saief - no
Acosta - yes
Delgado - no (he does hustle though)
Amon - yes
Robinson - yes
Weah - yes
Green - yes
Sargent - yes

I am probably being overly critical of Bradley, but at this juncture there are better options and I do not think he is suited to coming off the bench.

Saief just doesn't fit with the team imo and Trapp is just too slow with the ball.

And all this talk of "wingers" doesn't make sense, especially since we are playing with one striker who always appears to be too isolated to do any good. Weah and Pulisic are our best options but they need to play a little more inside and have a little more freedom to be creative and dangerous. I still think Robinson and Yedlin (or Cannon or even Dest) as wingbacks in a back three gives us more balance.

Looking ahead, I would like to see Morales, Adams, and McKennie in place of Delgado, Bradley, and Trapp and Scott in place of Saief.

I'm about done with Green. Dude is slow both physically and mentally. Never plays the ball quickly enough.

Biggest thing missing is a no. 10. Neither Pulisic or McKennie are best in that role.

Aaron Long was good defensively, not so much with the ball at his foot.

Where's my guy who says Sargent isn't the best #9??? That's without all our best midfielders on the field as well. He needs guys who can read the plays he makes. Acosta blew an assist for Sargent with a heavy touch and didn't shoot the ball rolled out of bounds... and also Amon blew that play off of Sargents thru pass back heel (if Amon doesn't work on his left foot he isn't a LW, that play was tailor made to slide it with his left foot to Weah, not over cook and outside of the foot pass with the right! Come on Amon...). Josh Sargent is our top forward option right now, and just imagine how good he will be when he gets regular run for Bremen ( Sargent has two senior goals without ever playing a full professional game for a first team at club level).
