This is so sorry. I'm disgusted and embarrassed as a US soccer fan. I wouldnt watch any of those guys if you paid me. What is JK doing seriously? Why didnt he just pick the NCAA all-stars or a senior league club team?

He couldve at least picked young players with more potential. He picked players that have already had chances and failed. Gonzo and Aguedelo have potential to be something. Gatt doesnt need to be in US camp, he needs to be at a youth development camp to learn technique. Mix is ok, but he doesnt have the technique or athleticism to even lace up Tab Ramos or John Obrien's boots. Bedoya is so good, he's in the prime of his career and he's out of contract from Sweden. KYLE BECKERMAN. Im speechless.

Zusi is the most overrated mediocre player in the pool. Zusi doesnt even make Mexico's U23s. Feilhaber is cool, but his best days are behind him. Wondoloski still adds nothing to the attack, no pace, no power, no creativity. Thats why he'll never make it as an international.

What I'm saying is: Who wants to buy my tickets for the USA/ Canada game? I have 2 on the sideline. I'll let them go for $90.

Though I agree with a ton of what your saying....who would you personally put on this roster?

So where are the suprise inclusions that we were told. The only suprise I saw was a disappointing roster.

bjelks.....while I agree that there could have been some better choices (Bshredder pretty much has my list when I first saw the roster on Fox Goals show)...nothing to go crazy about. It's a camp for players that he thinks can help for this first few WQCs...a lot of the young players will be on the Gold Cup squad. A few things I disagree on...Gatt doesn't need to be in this camp?? A developmental camp?? This is a great camp to allow JK and co to work with him...no pressure whatsoever. Ole Gunnar seems to like Gatt a good bit...and he knows football a good bit more than anyone on here. Mix is ok but Bedoya is so good??? I like Bedoya but complain about Mix being on the roster is crazy, he is one of the best U23 players in the pool. O'Brien, Deleon, Okugo, and Clark are the big ones I think that deserve to be in camp.

My comment about Bedoya was purely sarcasm. I said that Bedoya is so good he cant stay on contract in Sweden.

I dont have a problem with Gatt. I just font believe in his hype. I dont think he's in the same class as Shea or Gyau.

With this ridiculous roster, he couldve very well picked Lee Nguyen. He's just as good if not better than Feilhaber.

Wood, Gyau, Wooten are with their clubs

Boss just isn't very good. Johannsson is hurt (and still likely to play for Iceland)

Adu? Meh.

The fact that he continues to pick Kyle Beckerman and he will probably start him, makes me really question JK's competency. We would've been just as well off with Bradley and his love affair with Bornstein.

Your saying to score more goals you want beckerman in over Adu? You do realize when we begin to play World Class teams Beckerman will be left in the dust right?

Funny you say Boss isnt very good because NOBODY ON THE ROSTER IS VERY GOOD EITHER.

It's also funny that Adu is the only player in the pool that has proven capable of playing technically with any power team in the world cant even get a shot and Kyle Beckerman royally SUCKS every game and he's 40 and continues to feature.

Yes they want to complain more about his 500k salary then the fact that he has proven to get past Brazil, Spain, Mexico, etc. It's hard to back this team...and yes i know this is just a camp, but its pretty obvious that JK has his favorite players no different then BB did. All I'm the entire USSF needs to replaced with men and women who have an open mind, and understand that TALENT outweighs TEACHERS PETS.

Got to love the debates that are happening now with the regards to roster announcements.

Bjelks...well it's kind of hard to read sarcasm over text. Like Shredder said, a few on your list are still playing for their clubs. Boss doesn't deserve a call-up...let him play through a couple of months once the MLS starts to see otherwise. Honestly don't see how you think Gyau is that much better...both have a ways to go though, but nice to have on the roster for a change of pace depending if you need to change the tempo of a game. I complain about Beckerman but don't compare him with Adu...they play two TOTALLY different positions and roles within his system. Also, over half of these players won't see the field in WCQs much less the WC. JK has done very well so far no need in calling for the tar and feathers yet.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
