Best case scenario for him is to come back January or February and not miss a beat. Then he goes to Brazil as a back up.
Most likely won't happen though. I guess he could be on the 2018 team? 32 isn't too old. Problem is that he'll have too much younger talent to compete with. Holden's career has been tragic. Great to see him being positive though.

There is a video of Stu jumping up a down when they lifted the cup. Cant jump that many times and that well with a torn acl


Its being reported that he tore his right ACL. I guess you can jump like that with only one ACL

I have a feeling holdens career is over.. I doubt he will ever play for usa again, wouldnt be suprised if he retires... that knee is done, even if he plays he will never be the same..

It's not the same knee. I think he will continue to play club once healthy. He might take a break for international for a couple of years, focus on getting a year or so of healthy club play. Though he might just retire from international play.

Stu is a guy who loves to play for his country, so I dont think he would ever just retire unless he could no longer play period. Adrian Peterson was a rare case for a recovery but with Stus work ethic and desire he could be back by March meaning he could get a decent run up to try to be on the world cup team. He is a guy whos good to have around so I could see him being on the team in 2018, if not as a contributing player then as a leader motivator from the bench in some capacity.

You can jog, run, and even sprint with a torn ACL.. as long as it's straight fwd and don't shift or cut.. you can even play simple ball.. Ive had a torn ACL since 2011 and even all that is possible, not recommended cause your knee can give out. Hopefully he gets to recover and finish off in the MLS.. go Stu!

This....this makes me want to cry grown man tears.....Stu is tough and has such a good spirit. He'll be back. I'm not sure in what capacity, but we will see him again. He's done it before. Screw all you jack legs saying has done! Have some faith. Be positive boys.

I would love to see him back with Houston. None of this MLS lottery for US MNT players nonsense either, it would be great to see Stu come back to the Dynamo (and I'm not even a Dynamo fan) but if he wants to continue to test Europe when he's recovered that's understandable.

Additionally, they need to find a role to get him to Brazil. From all of the interviews its clear that the team really likes and respects him and he's one of these glue guys who brings all the personalities together. Give him an honorary assistant job or something that allows him to sit on the bench with the team.

I wouldn't be completely opposed to such a move...probably would be best on a loan basis though, don't want to shut the door on his Bolton career too early.

This man is not done. I wish he had more time on field because this man dies by playing hard in the field. He deserves to be in a WC for how much he plays when he wears the red white and blue

I have no doubt Stu will make it back prior to the WC, but not in time to contribute significant minutes. I wouldn't bet against him.
