Duane has had equal starts at attacking and center mid.

Also, can we not agree that we need a backup at every position?

Should player personal preference have some objective basis in who is actually the better player?

It's frustrating to see guys at equal or higher levels get completely dismissed because domestic league fans prefer to lose with their favorite domestic players.

This is the same reason we didn't qualify last cycle.


It is more about getting all players into a camp and seeing who is better in person. It would be nice to see an expanded roster due to the lost time due to Covid. Most of the players mentioned, I wouldn't mind seeing in a competitive setting.

My starting XI would be an all action one in the midfield. The idea being get the ball back and have space to play it into guys like Pulisic, Sargent, Morris, Reyna, Weah etc.
I'd love to see Brooks/EPB that's a lot of ground they can cover and good passing. Sean Johnson for me until Steffen is actually healthy.

---- Sargent ----
- Pulisic ---- Morris -
-- Holmes - McKennie --
Robinson -- Adams -- Dest
-- Brooks -- EPB --
--- Sean Johnson ---

Subs: Reyna, Weah, Jozy.

And I only put Adams on there because I don't need to hear the same shit. I'd stick Holmes back there because he could handle it. Put Ledzema next to Gio. In order to be a great team your defensive mid still needs to create opportunities and Adams is just too scared to go forward... damn I miss Jermaine Jones. Still my favorite USMNT player.

Whoscored rated Wes as their top CM in their U21 team of the month for June.
All these guys on the team are top of the top level players, but he's not good enough to start for a team that failed to qualify in concacaf. What a joke.

I would prefer instead of MLS vs Euro-have two captains pick teams like in the school yard. I think I would have Pulisic and Brooks as my captains and let them pick their squad.

I'm a big fan of Pomykal. I like Holmes too. I hope to see both get their chances with the USMNT.

Whoscored TOTM for Antonee Robinson

https://twitter.com/danielsmith1022/status/12...

A 20mil LB that can't even make the GC team. Of course Gregg has no idea what he's doing.

20mil? What are you referencing?

Last I checked, Antonee Robinson was not valued at $20m.

I agree that no MLS guy should be called over Robinson

"Rumors" were AC Milan was offering 10M. But with Wigan's financial state I don't see them getting more than 3-5M.

That is him referencing himself, which doesn't count as a source unfortunately.

The way bidding wars work is that they drive up the prices for players.

With Robinson's run of form and his clear separation as the best left back in the Championship at this point, doubling Milan's agreed upon fee doesn't seem far fetched.

The funny thing is I mentioned Gregg rated Ream, Vines, Gasper and Lovitz above Antonee and all Mike heard was 20mm lol.

Why not be outraged at how bad Gregg's player evaluations are, so bad that he can't tell the difference between a 1 million dollar player and a 10 - 20?
