I still think there are some questions about the USMNT going forward, and I think Klinsmann will want to see players compete against eachother before finalising the Honduras roster, so with that said this is my projected January camp roster.

GK: Tally Hall, Johnson, Rimando, Hamid
Defense: Sarkodie, Beitashour, Morrow, Corb, Gonzo, Goodson, Besler, Okugo
Cm's: O'Brien, Diskerud, Beckerman, Kitchen
Am's: Gatt, Donovan, DeLeon, Pontius, Zusi
FWDS: Agudelo, Bruin, Sapong, EJ, Gordon

Obviously the roster will get trimmed down the closer they get to the Honduras game when the European players will be added. I expect about 10 players from this list to make the Qualifying roster against Honduras: Donovan, Zusi, EJ, Agudelo, Gonzo, Besler, Pontius, Diskerud, Gatt, and Rimando. Those are the players I suspect we will see.

I say start the Camp in middle January so these guys will all be in shape and on the same page come February.

I'd like to see Steve Clark called in too.

I think Bedoya and Parkhurt are likely to be called in also.

I am seriously blanking right now, but who is Corb?

3 defensive minded midfielders and the lack of calling in Seb Hines (or John Brooks) is what killed this game for us. Also playing Gomez and Altidore at the same time is useless.

For some reason I always forget about Parkhusrt. With that being said take out Korb and replace him with Parkhurst.

Korb plays LB for DC United. Spelled his name wrong it starts with a K.

I also wouldn't count Brad Evans out either.

Aren't Mix and Bedoya out of contact in January or at least one of them? That might change things if they go to a different league. Evans was on a preliminary roster not too long ago, so he is definitely in the mix

Agudelo is going to be training with Celtic for the MLS offseason. I am not sure if that will prevent him from participating in this camp though.

I think it will, but I don't if it will be like it use to be.

Yes, JK has said that he will have the camp.....just expect it to be shorter and with less players....only calling in ppl that realistically will help in the Hex.

I think you are right about Bedoya. I am not sure about Mix though.

BTW... Conor O'Brien, Mix Diskerud, Alejandro Bedoya, and Michael Parkhurst all have their contracts expiring at the end of December. Each of these players has a strong possibility to be onto a bigger league in January.

Steve Clark has 1 year left of his contract but he could likely be on the move as well (Since he's the best keeper in Norway)

It seems kind of crazy to be altering the January camp now. Last year's camp was one of the most successful ever. Geoff Cameron and Graham Zusi are player who can start big games for the US national tema right now and they started their rise in the last January camp. If you can get two starters out of one camp, that's HUGE.

Not to mention Parkhurst's standing with Klinsmann improved greatly at the January camp.

Last year's camp was great. Why change?

Hiring Jurgen was a mistake. Just continues to show again and again. For the life of me I don't understand why Jurgen continues to play 3 defensive minded midfielders. It DOESNT WORK for us. Stubborn, self-assured coach.
