IF LD is back I'm all with you rain.. There's no reason to have EJ he was in form 6 months ago... not anymore.. Boyd hasssssss to get minutes. Or at least become #2.. I personally think he's our second best pure ST


What would give you the indication that Boyd is the second best pure striker? Boyd has yet to score a goal for the US.

EJ is still ahead of Boyd.

I like Boyd and I think he has a bright future, but really he hasn't proven he is better than EJ or Herc Gomez.

He has been put out there, and as of yet has not scored a goal. I am sure he will eventually score a goal, but Boyd still has some maturing and developing as a player still.

Your boy Chris Pontius aka party boy just got pushed down the USMNT list further.

Boyd shouldve scored 2 vs brazil

Start him up top with altidore and put in a creative midfielder. The goals will come.

Boyd is not #2. Herc is better. He scores routinely, is more experienced, more versatile... Yea. Then I'd say Boyd because EJ is out of form right now.

So with Pontius' constant groin problem, I will take a look at some other wingers/attacking middies that could be in line for the May/June camp.

1. Bedoya- Probably in the driver seat to be called in as long as he stays injury free.
2. Davis- To be honest I don't think he has enough speed to compete as an international winger. Smart player that I wish had more speed.
3. Wooten- I like him, but has he done enough to be called up this summer? I don't know.
4. Gatt- Probably a Gold cup call-up, but Klinsmann may just spring a surprise and call him in for the May camp.
5. Shea- Still not 100 percent from his foot surgery; probably a Gold Cup call-up, but I could see Klinsmann still call him up for the May camp
6. Gyau- Long shot for the May camp, and probably on the fringe of the Gold Cup team.
7. Luis Silva- I really like Silva. I think his best position is underneath a striker as a CAM/CF, but he does have the ability to play out wide. He reminds me a lot of Dempsey. Fringe Gold Cup call-up right now.

Wild Card: Freddy Adu- I would like to see him on the Gold Cup team, but it's up to him now to start producing for Bahia. He has been used two times for Bahia as a sub in the last 10 minutes of games so far. Hopefully he can make a mark in the next few months.

Other player(s) that can play as a RAM/winger: Holden who I think will be called up to the Gold Cup at the very least; it's just a question of where Klinsmann would like to put him at in the starting 11.

Joe Corona- Not very quick, but is smart with the ball in the attacking third.

I will say there is a worrying trend of a lack of American wingers/RAM/LAM's in MLS right now. Something that needs to be rectified in the coming years.

Anyone know a good streaming site for the MLS game Portland vs KC tonight? Personal message me, doubt YanksAbroad would allow a public post stating a site like that.

Have to say I think we will see Demarcus Beasley. I think he replaces Corona. I meant to put him in with the attackers.

@Rain: yeah I think you're right. Boca will probably get the nod over Goodson.

Completely agree. From what I saw of the game, Demarcus Beasley looked dangerous today. I liked seeing that side of him again.
