Well it seems Perry Kitchen, DeLeon, and Sarkodie have been picking up some steam in the USMNT circles for a January camp call-up, so here is a revised possible 23 man roster. Not including Donovan.

GK: Clark, Sean Johnson, Rimando
Defense: Gonzo, Besler, Berry, Parkhurst, Sarkodie, Morrow, Beitashour
CM's: Kitchen, O'Brien, Diskerud, Beckerman
AM's: Zusi, Pontius, DeLeon, Adu, Gatt
FWDS: EJ, Bruin, Boyd, Agudelo

Depending on what happens with Gonzo, Diskerud, and Parkhursts contracts they may or may not be in camp.

Bedoya is a possibility as well.

I have a feeling Klinsmann will want to assess Adu more because lets face it Adu is a talented player that should be in the picture.

Tally Hall may get the call over Johnson.

Klinsmann has said that there is a strong possibility Boyd will get called in while Austria is on break. the Austrian league takes a long extended break over the winter like Denmark does.

And I like Steve Clark to get called in.

@award - pass the word to the mex trolls on ESPN that i deleted my account so those idiots can stop obsessing over me

Nice roster selection, I would replace:

George John > Berry
CJ Sapong > Bruin

Interesting with this roster, there would be some good competition for a starting XI

What about the Mexican League guys? Corona, Garza, Castillo have to be there. And knowing his love for Torres wouldn't be shocked to see him in there either

I think Hamid gets the call before Johnson and Hall. He was an absolute monster to finish out the year as opposed to the Cookie Monster, who kind of faded out. Other than that I think your roster is spot-on. Props.

Liga MX starts back up in like a month. So all of the yanks in Mexico will be occupied with the Liga MX season.

He signed for Portland at the league min and was released/or not resigned after this year. No MLS team has picked him up either so hopefully he goes to USL/NASL and gets some playing time in one of those leagues.

Injury problems have curtailed his young career, but he is only 18, and still has time to make a name for himself.

My guess though since he was released by Hoffenheim in January of 2012 then released by Portland in october of 2012 does not bode well for his future.

Cookies in England are referred to as "biscuits"

I hope Sean "cookie monster" johnson can make that adjustment

Klinsmann already confirmed that there will be a January Camp held in late January, and they are working on a friendly as well.

Bedoya is making a very good case that he should be brought in to the January camp. Has a goal today for Helsingborg. Only uncertainty is his contract.

Yessir. It'd be fun to see him and Gatt opposite each other on the wings and bring some real speed play. Especially if we have a friendly in January.

Gatt was horrible in yesterdays game. I think he was pulled in the 60th minute. Too many turnovers


Conor O'Brien could finally make his Austrian debut for Wiener Neustadt on Saturday.
