Gall is meh. Washed out of MLS and isn't getting much run in Sweden.

It's stupid that Holmes isn't on the squad.

Sonora should get a look. Alvarado should get another chance.

There are a bunch of dudes that just played with the U23 team that should have been out there tonight.


Worth a shot to see if Gall is better than Arriola, Morris, for sure Baird

Can combine in tight spaces, make clever runs, shoot from distance.
At least give him the chance you gave Baird

Don't fall into the bjelks trap of throwing out random names without context though. Make a specific case for somebody to replace somebody who isn't cutting it. Like if you want Holmes's energy and creativity to replace whatever it is Roldan is supposed to be bringing.


Here you go lying again.
Tell me who I threw out with context

We don't have a central midfielder when Adams is out. We need to develop one, club situation be damned.

Try out Kyle Scott, Parks, Zelalem, Ledezema, Aaronson and Pomykal.

Just try something.


Kyle Scott is not match ready nor anywhere near the first team. I like his game, but in the current climate with the current roster he would not be a good fit. He can fit a pass, but he would get easily frustrated having nobody to link up with in this current team.

I would be happy with a mobile midfield that can hunt the ball and get it quickly to counter with CP, Sargent, and Weah.

The word is without, without context. You want all of the examples or just a few? Williams when he was coming back from long-term injury problems and struggling to find a club, you were calling for him because he had been our man of the match in a game where Brazil kicked our butt 5 years ago. Johnson you keep bringing up when he's made statements that he's done, Berhalter's talked to him, and he's remained done. Sonora you keep crying about without mentioning he got injured before this break. Shall I continue?

At least you didn't call me a bigot this time without understanding what the word means.

It was a fucking typo you little cunt. Do you know what typo means?

Danny Williams on his worst day still is and has been better than every 6 we've played in the last yr not named Alfredo Morales. If you can call Morris after a long lay-off, you can call DWill
Also he was left out in 2017 when he was a regular starter in the EPL

I asked you to show me the statement from Fab, idgaf about the gossip

Sonora should've been called in a yr ago. Go ahead and give up, you're full of shit.

You're intolerant of anyone that thinks the roster should be majority turned over. You come up with bullshit excuses to validate Gregg intentionally selecting lesser players to promote a trash ass league and fatten the pockets of his bosses.
This is why I call you a fucking bigot.

We need to treat all players equally when it comes to injury recovery, we need to treat all players equally when we consider past performance (this means not just Jozy and Bradley), we need to prioritize guys that play regularly in top leagues, Euro and South American competitions, we need to consider top young talents at major clubs, and finally we need to consider if the player playing games is a actually better than the person who plays less at playing soccer

@bjelks, you are absolutely hopeless. If this site had an actual mod you would have been banned long ago. I'm done acknowledging your posts and your complete lack of logic or consistency, and I would advise others to do the same.

Leaving out specific injuries to various players, I don't see how anyone can argue that it's not time to take some risks. If Richards, Ledezma, Mendez or whoever can come in and show that they are better than the guys currently getting minutes, then play them. I don't care if they are playing on a reserve side in the Regionalliga or 2nd division in the Netherlands. We can't keep using the same ineffective players.

I totally agree with you on this. I do want us to be calling up a player based on something tangible though, like how Cappis, Toye or Ebobisse are performing for their first teams, or with a guy like Williams, see if he can stay healthy for more than a month of a regular season first.

But why? What do we have to lose trying some kids that aren't getting first team minutes?

Could hurt the kid's development, for one, treating a kid as if he has made it when he hasn't actually done so yet, he gets a big head, doesn't work as hard to improve (depends on the kid if that will happen obviously). That's why it is generally best to let the kid's club decide if he is ready for first team play or not (either with that team or in a loan where the idea is to get him first team play). I want us to try as much as possible to raise the standards, while realizing our choices are far fewer than we would like them to be. But we have enough first team pros out there to at least turn over most of the roster.

@db707 And you would've been banned for attempted character defamation.
You're full of shit and lie on my name because I have a different opinion that you.
That makes you a bigot.
I consistently ask that we identify the best players everyday regardless of age, dual national status, club situation, race, relationship with ussf.
I presented logical criteria for evaluating players.
Wtf are you talking bout?

I could careless if you respond to me, all you're going to do is echo whatever Gregg and USSF say. You behave like a tool and we need new ideas, because what we're doing isn't working.

And what kind of man or whatever you are asks other men to not talk to another?
You're the type of cat to ask for smoke and run. Coward!
