Went another 90 today in a loss. Earned 5 drawn fouls no shots on goal for Julian. Does the Bundesliga 2 still have the extended break? If so maybe a camp cupcake invite. If I remember right it has happened in the past with at least Morales

Bundesliga 2 does tend to have a longer winter break, but it is very infrequently that B2 players are allowed to participate in our January Camp. B2 & Liga MX players who have participated during the US January Camp tend to be players who are not in their clubs immediate plays...either just coming off injuries who are allowed to regain fitness, or players who the clubs are thinking about selling, and therefore give permission as a showcase without having to worry about impact/points towards their league standings.

The MX league players have been TJ who let a player come up for midweek practice. The only one I know for sure did is Morales

Original post from 2tone

People hate on Altidore because he didn't meet their lofty expectations of him. He is what he is. He has very good performances and he has bad performances. But he is still in the top 2 of current strikers for the USMNT. That may change in the coming years, but other players need to show that they deserve to beat him out as a starter.


I hate on Altidore because of his effort. He is a guy who doesn't give it his all. If you rematch the T&T game-he is walking around the field when we need goals to go the WORLD CUP. who does this.

I don't like his "hold up"style of play either but agree it is certainly needed if we have guys who can not hold the ball or are tactically in the wrong place to relieve pressure for outlets, then Jozys hold up is needed.

HOWEVER, with the new bread of players we do not need hold up, we have young technical player who can hold the ball and understand spacing and have speed, so Jozy will merely slow our game down.

We need wood and then 3 more young players to develop.

Even if we need hold up play, I would rather see Sapong then to ever see Jozy walking again on the field.

Terrance Boyd can hold up the ball and play with good technique and speed and he plays in a much more competitive environment than Jozy

Boyd can't stay healthy. Otherwise he may have already beat out Jozy.

But we can agree from a pure quality stand pt, Boyd is better at least?

I doubt anybody disagrees with that. I still believe the dumbest decision Klinnsman made in 14 besides Davis over Donnovan was Wondo over a healthy Boyd who played a similar game to Jozy with more talent.

Think he is very talented.
