I mean people on here argue all of the time that the US program should produce their own talent. Well with Yedlin and others in MLS teams it looks like they are producing talent at RB.

The US had no part in developing Henley.

So which is it: develop are own players and give them opportunities to play and shine, or continue going after dual nationals?

Now if Henley is adament about repping the US then so be it, but does the US program really need to go after him?

I have no problems with the US bringing in Henley if that is what "he" really wants.

I have no problems with bringing in any dual nationals if that is that dual nationals preference.

As long as no promises are made, or cap tying games are played I don't think it ever hurts. If jk or Ramos think Henley would help their team then bring him in. Just like with brooks. If jk s thinks he is a top 3 option at cb then bring him in. I just don't think we want to start doing 90' sub appearances to cap tie a young prospect. That would turn off future dual nationals. But if we are upfront and don't screw these guys over I'm all for anyone.

Well, Henley would be cap tied just by filing a switch, not even by playing. He would need to file a switch just to play in an official youth competition or usmnt friendly.

But you're right, no promises to duals who switch. All they get is a fair shot. Sometimes it works (Fabian Johnson, Jermaime Jones, Edgar Castillo) or sometimes it doesn't (Teal Bunbury or Aaron Maund). All filed for the switch which tied them.

I'd love to have Henley but if Yedlin beats him out, then he doesn't play.

Looks like Payne is going to get his second straight start for Groningen tomorrow. He is lining up to start at LB.

Yeah I hope to see Ramos get this guy into the U-20 fold. Moore and Requejo were quite good in the CONCACAF tournament, but having a player like Payne already getting first team minutes for his club will bolster an already very good U-20 defense.

Payne is back healthy. He went the final 26 minutes for Groningen today in a 2-0 win over PEC Zwolle.

Didn't see the game just saw that he was subbed on when I was looking at scores.

Looks like he came on to help his team sure up the win as they were already up 2-0 by the time he came on. Loved him at the U-20 WC. Hopefully he can be our answer at LB going forward in the future, literally and figuratively.

He is much better at RB. But he can play LB. I think LB will get more competitive in the coming months and years. Shea, Pelosi, Dia, Payne possibly.

Payne starts at LB today as the Eredivisie starts back up again. Good to see more outside back options starting to emerge. Remember he can play both RB and LB.

Awesome sign. We still don't have a lb yet. I'm not sold on ream or Shea. Yedlin looks to have rb covered for the next few months. Maybe chandler re emerges but if not its wide open.

Groningen lost 4-1 today to Utrecht, Payne was taken off in the 56th. I cannot imagine he played too well but could have been just a tactical switch. They were down 2-1 at the time of his subbing off.

How long is Rubin out for?

Man, if Payne can be get major minutes and be successful with his club at LB that would be huge

I hate to be the harbinger of bad news, ladies and gentlemen, but Michael Orozco will start for the US men's national team in Jacksonville.
