Games at Wales and against Australia in London rumored.

Haven't been finalized but they're the most likely opponents with a solely Euro based roster

I only hope Berhalter will realize that a Mc Kennie/Adams midfield combo will be worse than the Jones/Bradley combo

What?? Too much of one color or something...just fueling the fire lol.

They should be okay, Mckennie just needs to realize he's a box to box in the system not an AM..

Yea they'd make history with being the first time we've ever had 2 CMs with KO round Champs League experience, that would make them the most accomplished CM tandem we've ever had

True and they are so young! Crazy. Given the past five years have been the worst for the USMNT we are getting to experience a soccer/football revolution, as Belgium did in recent times. Belgium were non-existent in the early late 90s early 2000s with Euro soccer at it's height. But then came a crop of stars in the late 2000s until now, Kompany, Hazard, De Bruyne, Courtois, Mertens, and plenty more coming. We may have a golden age on our hands.

Regarding Champions League experience, the Champions League was created in 1955 with only 16 teams. It changed I believe in 1992 with upwards of 70 teams having access without a domestic league, we (Americans) had little representation in the Champions League prior to creation of MLS. Now MLS was created about 26 years ago and roughly one generation after its we are seeing more and more US representation. All players have MLS links with the exception of Pulisic, Konrad and Dest.

Mckennie-Dallas
Richards-Dallas/Houston
Adams-NYRB
Reyna-NY

Who am I missing? But I notice, the three I first thought of-are minorities.

And we have another potential player in Joe Scally who signed with Monglebach recently. At this rate Europe won't have the roster spots for the young American talent, which means a stronger domestic league (assuming they stay in USA) and a stronger national team.

Lol are you really gonna give mls credit for players that have never played an mls game???

Cmon dude, we get it, but just give the kids credit, Gatdamn man.

Fuck we can't talk about the Champs League without you coming up with some round about theory how mls is such a hot bed bc some player that played in the 6 yr old academy is now with Barca

I'll give you Adams & McKennie both were developed through MLS, as they both spent a number of years in their clubs youth system prior to transferring to Europe when they turned 18.
Richards, was with Dallas for a year before being loaned/sold to Bayern. I can't really give them much development credit for him, but it is nice that they got $$ for him, Unlike McKennie.
While Reyna did spend ~4 yrs in NYCFC's youth teams, I doubt they developed his game as much as his Father & Mother did. Benefit of having parents who were both International Caliber players.

Who's Missing....Steffens with MC has obvious ties to MLS but Horvath doesn't have any ties to MLS.

You are right about Reyna, I think he would've been discovered even without MLS. And you are also partly correct about Chris Richards but Eric Quill has a large part of identifying him. For reference-

I also like this video with Taylor Twellman and a few players that went through MLS academies.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gP9RiJKXVWc&v...

Two points from this
1.) MLS is already doing a part for our national team in identifying talent. Some others Uly, Gloster, Ledezma, KHF, Cannon, Booth, Scally, EPB without MLS these guys are probably playing on a university team. There's more players in the pipeline too.

2) Second-it seems to be doing so inclusive of race. That Eric Quill story does showcase that pretty well. @Bjelks, I can lead a horse to water but can't make him drink.

@Dave-Don't you realize, you are dealing with lawyers? 1/2 of 1/2 is 1/4!

IMO, I think they're similar players. Mc Kinnie goes forward more but him paired with Adams will just be a shit ton of back passing.

This is a wildly rational take.
