The above isn't bad but I think Yeldin and McKennie are still dealing with injuries. So see how it goes with them later,

Depending on who did better Casper or Vines invite them. I think Robinsee is clearly the LB of choice at the moment.

Steffens, Horvath, (Steffens is clearly number 1 so would like to see Horvath get a run-we need to figure out our 2)

Defense: Yedlin, A. Robinson, Fabian or Chandler, Miazga, Brooks, Alvarado, EPB, Gloster

Midfield: Adams, McKennie, Cappis, Holmes, Green,

Attackers: Sargent, Pulisic, Ledezma, Morris, Gooch, Boyd, Reyna, Dest

Would love to see Dest moved up the field. Play yedlin behind him

I hope to see Duane Holmes added. He has been in really good form as the more attacking midfielder for Derby. Would love to see:

--Holmes--Mckennie
----Adams---

-
At 30 yrs Old with 1 senior cap, not sure that Opara would be worth a roster spot. Besides if he was going to get a look it would have been as part of the January Camp with the rest of the MLS types...not during the March friendlies in Europe.
-
With the recent injuries (Green & Maziga) there are some changes that would have to be made from my Original selection, but otherwise :
Keepers: Steffens, Horvath, TBD
Defense: Yedlin, A. Robinson, Dest, Long, Brooks, Alvarado, CCV, EPB, Gloster (flyer)
Midfield: Adams, McKennie, Cappis, Holmes, Morales
Attackers: Sargent, Pulisic, Ledezma, Morris, Arriola, Boyd, Reyna
-
I still believe that Weah is likely to be allowed to play with the Olympic Qualifiers, but if he's not released for that team than bring him into this camp.

Seeing reports that Julian Gressel is working on becoming a US citizen and wants to play for the US, if true would be great to call him into camp, I don't think he will be eligible until 2021 but would good to see how he fits into the guys in camp

Julian Gressel would be an interesting addition to our pool, but I'm not sure where he'd fit into the equation. He's currently 26...2 yrs older than Arriola. They both play roughly the same position. If he was eligible today, I'd take him over Arriola....but he's not.
Arriola is currently a back-up to either Pulisic or Morris, but is on the cusp of being overtaken by even younger options (Reyna & Weah with Llanez & Vassilev hot on their heals). So what would Gressel really add to the player pool?
There is also Boyd to factor in, if he ever regains his form.

At 30 years old Ike Opara is one of the best CB's in MLS. Criminally undervalued. And quite frankly we need more depth. And CB is a position you need experience at.

Opara has been the best defender in MLS for a while now. Even with SKC. Feel like it's a chad Marshall case.

This is one of the most important things for March from my perspective. Call Holmes and give him a good run in both games. His skills, drive and versatility, I definitely see a place for him with the USMNT long term.

I hope GB listens to you, but he also needs to get Adams up to speed with the team and accommodate WM.

Adams would be at home drinking a Red Bull

For me he's ok and McKennie is off the radar for me..

Only MLS guys worthy for call up: Morris, Ferreira, K Parks
