I am projecting Brad Guzan to not be on the Gold Cup team.

With that being stated, here is my GK corps:

1. Rimando- He will be # 3 on the depth chart for the June qualifiers which means he will be left with RSL unless either Guzan or Howard get injured during the June qualifying process. He is the #1 Gk for the Gold Cup.

2. Sean John- I think right now Sean is clearly ahead of Bill Hamid in JK's pecking order.

3. Bill Hamid- Not much to say he will probably be the third keeper for the Gold Cup team.

Players that will be in the hunt:

Tally Hall
Steve Clark

JK might take Guzan, but I don't think Aston Villa will be to happy with Guzan being gone most of their pre-season. Thats why I don't believe Guzan wil be chosen. JK will probably make a compromise with Villa by not taking him for the Gold Cup.

I fell Guzan will be there, Howard will be fit and likely take his starting spot back for WCQ's.. So Guzan will be te starter for gold cup squad..if not, like you said 2tone preseason thing..

Guzan
Johnson
Rimando/hamid

If Steve Clark has another stand out season theres no denying him, switch rimando out for Clark..

Clark is a good Gk, but he doesn't beat out Rimando. Rimando has been a part of JK's teams since the beginning, Clark hasn't been called in once. JK is not going to drop Rimando for Clark. Not much differnce between Clark and Rimando either. Both are smaller GK's, both are really good shot stoppers, and both are good with their feet. But Rimando gets the call becasue JK A. likes him, and B. Rimando is a USMNT stalwart under JK right now.
