I don't think Alfredo Morales is a proper CDM. In the US MNT games with us he's lined up as a box to box, or regrettably a wing.

Danny Williams plays in the Championship, Geoff in the Premier, and has had good to very good performances at Stoke.

I agree Williams probably offers more physically than Geoff.

So def not Morales, I would def agree to Kitchen. But even those two aren't like Cameron.

I don't believe Williams is better on the ball than Cameron. That doesn't mean your wrong.


IMO which players are of higher value/quality depends on the formation we're playing in. Our best pure CDM's would be Cameron, Morales/Kitchen, with possibly Acosta climbing quickly.
Personally I like Bradley as a Box-to-Box midfielder more than a CDM. He's not particularly good at 1 v 1 defending, but he does cover a lot of ground and can connect passes well if not being asked to create. Williams is a Box-to-Box type as well, but he does defend better than Bradley.
In a 4-2-3-1 I'd use a CDM & Bradley (Williams as a back-up). In a 4-1-3-2 or a 4-4-2 diamond I'd consider Bradley as the Back-up to the CDM role.
In a 4-3-3 I'd put Bradley as a pinched in RM where Yedlin could overlap to provide the width. Williams could play on the left side pinched in....and we'd have Pulisic & another creative type in front of them.

HOW DO WE NOT CONSIDER DANNY WILLIAMS AND ALFREDO MORALES, WHO ARE BETTER ATHLETES AND BETTER TECHNICALLY THAN BRADLEY, CAM, AND DAX?

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.
