Want to laugh? Robbie Findley, Ricardo Clark, and Jonathan Bornstein were in the Starting 11 vs Ghana in 2010. And we should have won... And look at our team above now

Fabian does better for our offense when he's a fullback. He's disappeared for long stretches as LM

And don't forget that we have no competent LB other than fabian. Castillo did well against Bosnia but he has yet to prove that he can consistently perform.

DMB will continue to gain experience the more he plays the position. He may never be a natural fullback but he has good wheels, he does well getting forward and isn't easily beaten. He'll be more than capable of manning the position with Edgar then Fabian as backups.

You honestly feel comfortable with Beasley against top level competition. Yes, he has speed and can recover pretty well against CONCACAF teams. But when we face the better teams in the WC, he'll be exposed. Not to mention that he seems to be made of glass. Just to be clear, I like Beasley and appreciate everything he's done for the USMNT this year.

Agree 100%. And he'll be even slower by next summer, he's getting old.

I think we will find a suitable left back. And Castillo is still an option. I just believe our best MNT performances have been with Fabian Johnson at LM. I think he is a big part of our success. Is he a great left back? Yes, but I don't think he is as helpful to our team there as he is at LM. Just my opinion.

DMB has grown into a leftback, he may not have known it in the past, but I feel comfortable with him.

Beas 'even slower' is still faster than quite a few. If a more suitable left back option emerges I'm all for it but I'm just saying we'll be fine with him as a starter. If he's decent at it now, in a year as he continues learning and adjusting he'll have an even better understanding.

What understanding do you think he'll get? He doesn't play LB for club. We have another 7 or 8 games max till the world cup. The only way I'd be okay with not having fabian at LB is if Dolo can make it back in time for wc and Chandler comes back to form. Have Chandler at LB and Dolo at RB. That's a lot of ifs

That's amazing. Feels like USMNT fans should be raising the bar. I'm just not sure how high.
