Video's not working but I saw it earlier. Reminiscent of Phil Babb and his encounter with an Anfield post many years ago...

Alan Gordon but no Wondo...

Maybe Wondo requested not to be called up so he can try to break the goal scoring record.

Maybe you're going to send me that scarf... haha

Calling out a player for not performing well thanks to your shitty system is just as inexcusable.

Playing Jozy wide left in Toronto made me lol so hard.

I communicated with Jozy that I was not happy about his performances with us, maybe even over the last 14 months. Jozy can do much, much better. The reason he is not coming in is mainly about performances in Jamaica and at home, and also in training.


yeah cause you're fucking system fucking blows. God damn, I hope we fire fucking Jurgen if we qualify. Oh and the fact he called up for Edu, while using this excuse is a fucking joke.

The US roster isn't that big of a deal. Jozy was way out of line with that tweet (assuming it was directed at Jurgen), and that roster should still dominate Guate'/A&B. Also, EJ and Gordon have been on good form, and EJ is a proven scorer vs CONCACAF. 8 goals in 9 qualifiers. Both should be good fits in Jurgen's 4-3-3.

At least Sacha was called up.

Still think we should field a forward combo of Brian Ching and Connor Casey. With Mastroeini in the middle. And Tony Meola in goal.

Three questions:

1) How does the US team stack up against teams in Europe or SA? Are they better than any of them this time around? Is the 2014 squad going to be better than 2010? I know nothing.

2) How many designated players does each team get in the MLS? New fan...

3) What are the top 10 forwards in the MLS?

US team callups are a bit confusing. Must be more to the stories.

Don't get me wrong, he's doing great. He, to JK, hasn't committed himself to the USMNT system though and is on a different page. He wont be banging out hat tricks with mismatched tactics. Again, I think he's our best striker but I think jk is looking for puzzle pieces that fit not that look the best. Not saying he's right and this is clearly more about Jozy's tweet than anything but trying to understand a bit more of it.

Yeah, I think this is pretty spot on. I'll hold back on calling for Jurgen's head, until the Hex is decided.

3) What are the top 10 forwards in the MLS?

1) US is probably a mid level European or South American team.

2) 3 designated players per team. Some use all 3, and some don't use any.

3) In no particular order:
Henry, Wondolowski, Saborio, Cooper, Donovan, Eddie Johnson, Montero, Pontius, Espindola, Sapong

3) What are the top 10 forwards in the MLS?

1) We're kind of a mess right now as far as a lack of direction. We keep shuffling guys in and out, changing our tactics, etc., but when we find a consistent lineup/formation we will be alright. We're definitely a mid-tier team though, and our long-time stalwarts (Donovan, Bocanegra, Cherundolo, and even Dempsey) will be at the tail-end of their careers, so we need our young guys to step up and prove themselves.

2.) 3

3.) In my opinion, not in order:
Henry, Wondolowski, Keane, Saborio, Montero, Pontius, Sapong, Cooper, Espindola, Eddie Johnson. And if you consider Donovan a forward then he'd be on the list of course.
