Can't forget about my boy Johannsson, nice goal today but damn he needs to do some leg workouts. He stays getting injured !

I would still like to see Nagbe involved in the USMNT. He is so technical. I would love to see what he can do with a much more technically gifted team surrounding him.

I can count on @Samtom23 to have no idea what he's talking about and go out of his way to hype up mls players over top level players lol.

Listen to someone who knows more about football than you drag Morris for not being good enough for the nats.

Considering all the emerging talent it's difficult predict who's going to be the best option for the starting XI. However, there are two formations & groups I'd like to see tried in the near future during a friendly so we can test a couple extra players.
4-2-3-1
-------Sargent------
-Pulisic----Aaronson---Reyna-
---McKennie----Adams----
-A.Robinson--Brooks--Miazga--Dest-
-------Steffen-------
Bench: Weah, Morris, Holmes, CCV, EPB,
-
3-4-3
--Pulisic----Sargent---Reyna--
A. Robinson--McKennie--Adams--Dest
---CCV---Brooks--Miazga--
-------Horvath------
Bench: Weah, Morris, EPB, Pomykal, Alvarado,
-
I'd like to see Uli, Ferreira, Green, Morales and some of the others called into camps to keep them in the conversation and insure that the best options available for selection.
-
I get that people want to see De La Torre, Richards, and others....but regardless of their making the bench for their super clubs, until they at least start getting on the field in some kind of rotation they don't make the cut for me.


It is a nice approach. I think Sargent needs to work on his off the ball movement and I want to see more of a goal scorer drive out of him. But the next guy I am really keen on is Ledezma. I can see him pushing his way into the conversation this year at PSV. But we have depth, have some more thoughts but little busy at the moment.

I don't think he is a starter just yet. I think he needs to come to camp and see how he actually does. He also needs experience just like Sergino. We all saw how Sergino got skint in the Mexico game. I don't think anyone wants to see that learning process in a World Cup game or Qualifier. Hopefully he makes that jump this year and becomes the starter in 2022.

Kudos of respect to Eric Quill for not holding this kid's future up trying to make a buck for himself.


agreed this is exactly why alot of us have called for these guys to be called into friendlies-to get that exp--its great he got burned he learned and clearly has world class talent and touch--also when I call for fringe or young guys to get called up I am not saying they start but should be given an opp maybe a 45th or 60 min sub appearence and then build from there or move on from them-
but the experience card get played to much so now when we are close to WCQ GB will say well this young guys doesnt have exp-so he will stick to "vets" I want fringe/young guys called asap to see who can hang at this level, who can be a super sub, and who can add depth with yellow cards, injuries etc to have a guy practicing wit h Barca at our state of the Nats he derves a call up, can we at least see if he is as good as corey Baird?

In agreement with most of this. Especially about the dead horses, I hope not to see Ream, Lovitz, Roldan or Bradley. I am thinking about our midfield options to break it down like you did.

1) Veterans-Bradley, Morales, Trapp, Lleget, maybe you consider Nagbe but he isn't part of the equation in my eyes.

2) Young professionals-mainly you got Weston and Adams. If I miss anyone please feel free to add to it.

3) Prospects- Reyna, Ledezema, Aaronson, Pomykal. Some may argue Reyna should be a winger but I disagree but acknowledge the opinion.

I think the prospects are the way to go for us. I love watching Reyna, Ledezma and Aaronson. I think Ledezma is very much a finesse player and was clearly playing above his level last year. I really want to see how he does against older competition.


I think we can clearly say Reyna is not a prospect-he was a key figure and 1st option sub and wld have had starts if not for his injury--I would agree that Aaron and Pom are prospects and Pom should be called in

Well,Bjelks. Here we go again. I don't think you have a creative or critical thought in your head. And certainly are not willing to respect or listen to anyone else's opinion. What I wonder does Brian Kleiban have to wash his arm every time, you speak? I have much respect for Brian's ventriloquist abilities.

I think about that last video by Kleiban about Richards. He opens with stating CB's hit their prime in their late 20's. Then, he proceeds to call for Richards to start. Let's see how he actually does.

Konrad everyone and their mother knew he wasn't going to see the pitch but you call for him to start. Like I said, you cannot score from the bench.

You will saw Morris scored against Cuba but not mention Uruguay.

There is no critical thinking about Sargent's performance. He scored 5 goals last year. I think he needs to have pressure to perform for his spot.

I look at Weston and he might get bumped to a bench option. Which shows how we are progressing. I look at Aaronson and Ledezma and both have better vision and ball skills. It is quite possible that he gets surpassed. Adams is better than McKennie in my opinion but is suffering a crisis of confidence. I think not having Jesse Marsch with him is part of the reason.

You actually could've asked and I would've explained.

But instead you had to try to insult.

So I am left wondering, how much monthly does Brian Kleiban spend on body wash monthly to wash his arm off when he pulls it out your ass during his ventriloquist act?

@samtom - Tyler Adams closed the year strong for Leipzig, I've never seen a more confident player than Adams who ranks with the Dempsey's of the USA as far as just believing in himself. Maybe his skills need polish. I'll guess we will see in the big Champions League game he's involved in.

And Sargent got quite a few starts in the bundesliga for a straight up awful Bremen team. He will be in a much better position for the USA with Pulisic and Reyna and Dest getting him the ball than those blind ball hogs from Bremen.

Can everyone just let Tim Weah get back to full health I'm sure if he's healthy he starts over Morris but he has had a very bad hamstring injury. Baby steps.

I'm sure Gio reyna could do whatever it is that Nagbe does but then also see a dangerous play or pass developing. I'm a no for Nagbe even if he were committed I don't think his field vision is good offensively or defensively, he doesn't see the pass and he doesn't react to danger. Or not good enough anyways.

I can agree with letting Weah get back to health. This time around he had surgery instead of only rehab.

I think Sargent will be part of the 23 man roster come 2022 but he still needs to make some adjustments. There is a decent analysis of him here. No clue who they guy is breaking him down but seems to do an ok job. Based on this past year's performance, I don't think he is the lock starter. Hopefully, he improves this year. And the guy Osaka isn't bad for Bremen.

I can agree with you about Nagbe. If his heart isn't into it then there are options that do want it.

About Adams, he seems more tentative going forward then last year. I like Adams a lot and want him to step into the captain's role but I saw him make a lot of back passes last year. Safe but not offering much on the attack as opposed to the prior year.

He looked good to me, cld be bc he was played at RB a couple games-he will be fine I agree he should be our captain-and I'll argue he maybe our most important player.

No need to ask for an explanation. You have nothing to explain.
You're just going to hype mls players without any thought.
You're comparing guys that don't even play the same position lol like Wes and Tyler.
You think Aaronson has ball skills on par with Ledezma, which is a joke lol.
I disagree with Kleiban on Antonee, but he's on point on most things. You wouldn't understand bc you're too busy trying to defend mls players to objectively evaluate the game.
Morris scored against a disinterested Uruguay in a meaningless game. Good for him, Julian Green scored against Belgium in a WC RO16, but you're never calling his name lol. Your agenda and lack of understanding and knowledge is clear.
Kleiban is big on Richards bc he likes he thinks his IQ and Technique is better than the rest of the CB pool, you could see it too if you didn't have such an agenda to be ignorant and bias.

-
100% agree that Sargent needs to be more clinical in front of goal, but part of his challenges at the club level have been his lack of supporting cast. I'd like to see what he's like with what should be a higher grade of players that he'd have with the USMNT
A-Team. Pulisic, Reyna, & Aaronson/Holmes creating opportunities for him to finish...and McKennie & Adams helping to create turn overs in the opponents half of the field.
-
I'm hopeful that Ledezma will crack PSV's 1st team this season and provide another attacking option for the USMNT. But he needs to show he's capable of being a 2-way player and not just an attacking/creative threat if he's going to be in the starting XI for the USMNT. I think Ledezma is a better creative CM than Aaronson, but I was very impressed with Aaronson's defensive improvements since last season.
