Yes I'm speaking to Morris being someone that has shown he doesn't have the mental toughness to push himself at a higher level and step outside of his comfort zone.

Tactically, you are entitled to your opinion and I will respect it.
I personally don't think his movement and combo play is that sophisticated.

I've actually watched Bofo in full games and technical ability and tactical awareness are superior to Morris. He's got some work rate, bite on the tackle, and I'm not sure he's much slower than Morris.

I agree as soon as Ully gets to the 1st team, Sabbi tears up Hobro, and Konrad gets a loan, he won't have a part in the 23.

These young guys are simply clearly better players

Hahaha oh really?? You're critiquing and calling for Saucedo now?

Then how come its only now that you're calling for him to get brought into the national team? Because he has started getting games outside of MLS... completely ignoring the fact that his production in MLS is a joke compared to what Morris has done in the same league against the same competition at the same age?

Thanks for providing my daily laugh... again, you're full of jokes.

It's funny that you're never this passionate when the USMNT passes up clearly better dual and foreign based players to give him chances.
Your prejudice against minorities and fanboyship of sum is repulsive.

I don't wish injury on anyone, but if he needs to be hurt to clean up the corruption in the federation then so be it.
He knows it's part of the game and he'll be fine.
And the nats will be better off.
Hahahaha and this... dude.. where did he even bring any of this stuff up?

Multiple jokes made from you today. You are on a roll sir. Keep up the good work.

Who knows why Bofo hasn't had the same production in a lesser league? Coaching, teammates, club situation?
Wondo scored lots of mls goals, but was terrible at the intl level and couldn't play outside of mls.
It's a joke that you put that much value and priority in mls
But he's younger and clearly more technical.
The least he can do is be as bad as Morris.

Never cool to wish injury on someone, especially a US player. I do not want Paul A anywhere near the team but wish him luck in recovery, if I had an MLS team I was certainly want him on my team, I just do not want him anywhere no near the Nat.s

As for any fringe or euro potential player-we should evaluate all options. not to many more opps to see guys before we need to settle on a core group.

I didn't know where to post this one so i figured I would write it here. Anyone else see Jermaine Jones Interview? He went off on Arena and mls.

I wonder if the "half" players as he called it, just didn't respect our coaches and mls players. From thier perspective it was MLS guys vs Euro guys--clearly the Euro guys don't rate MLS.

It's not that the euro guys don't rate mls, it's just that they suck

Jermaine Jones speaks for Jermaine Jones. He does not speak for anyone else, and he has been known to have a large ego and big mouth.

Not saying that what he said isn't entirely without merit. Some of his points I tend to agree with. But just because he has some strong opinions doesn't mean that all of the other dual nationals feel the same way...

It would be interesting to see former Nats players speak about Arena. But yeah, he blasted Arena in the interview. On the flip side, Jurgen did himself no favours at his exit of Hertha Berlin. So maybe there hasn't been the leader needed as of yet
