Navi.....I definitely don't see Jurgen as a mistake, we have tied the best winning % this year....means he is doing something right. I'm not sure what people expected of him, did you think he was going to come in and magically we were going to have CAMs and strikers popping up everywhere. As far as 3 defensive minded CM.....really he only plays one in Williams.....I would never categorize Bradley as defensive-minded, as he gets into the attack and scores goals (world class goals at that). Jones also REALLY likes to get forward so much that usually it leaves a gap defensively, just athletic enough to make up for it getting back. Sure neither are super creative or have flair but they both get forward......can you list a CAM that is ready to play out this level???? Mix is the closest thing we have right now that can actually make an impact and he is a box to box mid with some qualities that would enable him to play in the hole.

I agree 100 percent with this statement. Very well thought out argument.

Klinsmann announced that he will be doing a January camp. Here is my Roster with strictly MLS and Scandinavian players, and with out Donovan.

Gk: Clark, Hall, Rimando
Defense: Gonzo, Besler, Goodson, Parkhurst, Morrow, Beitashour, Sarkodie
Cm's: Diskerud, O'Brien, Beckerman
Am's: Zusi, Pontius, Adu, Gatt, DeLeon
FWDS: Bruin, Agudelo, Sapong, Wondo, Eddie Johnson

Now of course there are some players that have there contracts expiring so it may effect who I have listed for my roster.

I agree with you that I wouldn't call Jurgen a mistake however I really really question the whole idea that he is doing something right because we tied the best winning % this year. All of these results were in friendlies and, while fun to watch, they are meaningless.
I think some fans are bummed on Jurgen because they thought we would play more exciting and attacking soccer under him which is exactly the opposite of what has happened. We'll see what he is worth when he is put to the test next year. Hopefully he'll do great and I know that I won't complain if we bang out 1-0 results while continuing to cede most possession and generating fewer chances.

Your missing a lot of the Mexican players from this list. I'd expect Corona, Garza, Castillo to all be part of the camp. Possibly Torres too
