    So I'm assuming Charlie Davies won't be able to play?

    Heard whispers he might but any update?

    His progress thus far has been incredible. I see I completely left him off my list. I would add him to "on the bubble."

    He's currently back w/ his club in France training.

    I know Guchi mayne has been working out with the nats since a week and a half ago.

    I want klejstan NO where near the World Cup roster.

    B.Feilhaber might miss the summer because he is back in brazil with an ankle injury.

    IF everyone is healthy this is my starting 11.

    -------------Charlie------Jozy-------

    Landon----J.Jones----M.Bradley-----Clint

    Bocanegra-Gooch----Demerit------Spector


    I would like to see Spector as LB and Dolo as RB, but I dont see how the captain is not starting.

    Um, Jones is most likely NOT making the roster and I'd be surprised if we played with 2 forwards. A 4-5-1 seems our likely formation. The real question is do we keep both Landon and Dempsey on the wings or have one float behind Jozy?

    I'm sorry but Sacha punched his ticket vs. El Salvador.

    J. Jones isn't healthy, hasn't even trained w/ the team, yet you have him starting? He'll be watching the WC this year just like you and I....on TV.

    Float Demps behind is what I would do personally. He ends up drifting up as the game progresses anyway. That's similar to the role he plays with Fuhlam and he can put the ball in the back of the net, something we have trouble doing.

    Ricardo has been injured...he plays in the Bundesliga

    Mo Edu just scored the game winner vs. Celtic. Probably the biggest goal in his life.

    thats why I said IF everyone is healthy.

    klejstan didnt do a damn thing except for the last second goal which was given to him.

    I see Bob sticking with the 4-4-2-, judging by our past experiences with trying a new formation.

    Yup gotta float Demps. He's got a way of continuing to make goals when others have difficulty. Also, imma assume Clark and Beasley make the squad.

    Donovan, Dempsey, Bradley, Edu, Holden, Beasley, Clark, Torres, Feilhaber

    with those players playing mf, I dont see how klejstan makes it..also if Beasley starts getting some games, he goes in before klejstans.

    Ricardo Clark had been injured and made the game day squad this past weekend but did not play.

    Edu should start wednesday.

    Is Benny gonna be healthy?

    Sacha made a great claim that last match. Yes his score was a gift, but to say he didn't play well the entire match is false. He held down our midfield.

    Robbie Rogers? out?
    Freddy Adu? out too?

    How does Mo Edu start w/ Michael Bradley? Do they not play the same position? If they do I guess we're playing bob's fielding 2 defensive mids [​IMG]

    This will be less of a disappointment than US Hockey since US Hockey at least had a legit short at winning the tourney[​IMG]

    Anybody going to SA? What about an NT SA summit... we can get cheaper tickets/hotels if we bundle [​IMG]

    Even though I support Spain unconditionally, and Mexico(birth place) casually, I have recently began to become more passionate for the USNMT... Ive lived 95% of my life in this country and I just feel right when I cheer for the USNMT. GO USA!!!
