Marvel Wynn has been moved back to his more natural RB spot, and he has looked really good.

I remember when he was supposed to be the future at RB, but was way to raw for those expectations at the time. IMO he has become a much much better defender. He picks his times to go forward much better, and his crossing has developed pretty well.

I think it's time to give him another run out at RB for the USMNT. The guy is probably the fastest player in the USMNT player pool, and with him maturing considerably in the past few years as a defender he has become an overall better RB.

I am not going to lie; I would like to see Wynn back with the USMNT.

Look at the options:

Dolo: Breaking down physically, and is probably on his last legs as a pro.

Chandler: has bad lapses in defending just like Wynn use to when he was young, and he seems a bit injury prone.

Parkhurst: while solid defensively, he doesn't bring enough dynamic attacking wing play to the position.

Beltran: same as Parkhurst

Lichaj: Klinsmann hasn't called him in yet, so who knows what happens with him going forward.

Yedlin: Probably a bit to young and raw right now.

Evans: is not a RB.

Spector: Rarely plays RB for his club, and injuries have slowed him down considerably.

Orozco Fiscal: IS a much better central defender than RB.

There you have it. I think Wynn deserves another shot with the USMNT. Maybe a November friendly and a january camp call-up should be in the cards for him.

I wouldn't hate the idea given our current situation at RB. I'd prefer to see what the team would look like with F.Johnson at RB and Beasley at LB or the other way around.

Lichaj certainly deserves a look, I thought he looked pretty solid in the 2011 Gold Cup and have no idea why Klinsmann doesn't even give him a look given our lack of quality there and his combination of age and athleticism. I figured Klinsmann wansn't giving him a look due to his lack of minutes which he always said was a major factor but that has clearly gone out of the window with guys like Guchi being called in.

I don't have a problem with Wynn but I feel like Chance Myers as well as Yedlin and Andrew Farrell deserve a shot in January given how good all three of them have been this year. Farrell has been a lot better than I expected at RB, granted I think his best position in the long term is CB, but we'll see how he develops.

An intresting idea but I think wynne is way to far down the depth chart to get call ups. I rate chance myers and Kofi Sarkodie higher then Wynne at this point however if Wynne can really break through at right back and really put in some really good performances over the next couple months then why not. However I think he has to compete with Beltran, Meyers, and sarkodie plus yedlin since klinsmann thinks very highly of yedlin. For him to make it back he has to play above all of these players the next couple months.

Plus dont forget if bethasiour can get back to his old form we could see him in the picture again. I like wynne but I think he has to pretty much own the right back spot in mls next couple of months to get a call up for the january camp. Novemeber callup is zero chance its pretty much cherendulo and chandler/parkhurst who will be called up for that game. Very good idea and I like where you are coming from but he is to far down the depth chart.

Id prefer guys like Farrell or Yedlin get a look before him. Farrell has spearheaded one of the best defenses in MLS and he looks like he has some very special skills getting forward

Spearheaded is a bit of a stretch. He is still very raw at RB. Makes a lot of mistakes at the position.

I understand he started last night, but not sure how you come up with a possible national team callup in the future.

Every player has a few bad games. With the lack of RB options I still think he deserves a look. And he looked pretty good last night. Shuffling between two positions all of the time can have a negative effect on a player. Hopefully Pareja will keep him at RB.

Hell if Parkhurst is getting called in even though he sat the bench for Augsburg the final 2 months of the season then a player like Wynn should get a look.

I get your Parkhurst point, but I dont think Parkhurst should of been called in, so that wont make me believe Wynne deserves a look. Neither have what it takes to play internationally.


A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
