Brazil with a WC worthy starting xi
The old guard will be brought back so that MLS can protect their equities. Just like they are ramming awful Will Trapp down our throats.I only caught the first half but during the broadcast they discussed why the team was younger and the old guard weren't called in. Said that the coach thought the kids needed to find their own way, identity, etc...then they went on to discuss how Bradley and company would likely be called in for the October friendlies.
would they bother??? They are not the future and need to be thanked for their time and move forward. We need the youth to get the experience, not to watch old players play out matches.
That comment made me laugh and I hope it doesn't come true.
If they aren’t playing in a back 3 in their clubs then that could be a liability.If we aren't playing 3 centerbacks as long as Miazga, Brooks, and CCV are in form then we aren't maximizing our talent pool. This next cycle has to be built on defense and counter-attacking. We just don't have the goal scorers to play any other way.

USMNT management needs to have the mentality that the best players play, regardless if the player plays club in MLS, Mexico, the Premiership, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, Eredivisie, Chinese Super League , etc. The MLS versus everyone foreign leagues that has gone back and forth over the last few years only hurts the USMNT.The old guard will be brought back so that MLS can protect their equities.

We did what we could, US Soccer only granted 1 section and the ticket prices (stadium wide) were a joke once again.The Outlaws had a decent showing and were intot the game.

We have 3 allocated sections for Peru at The Rent and tix are significantly less ($31), so that's positive, at least.
Robinson was our best player in the second half today. I’m sold.Danny Williams has been hurt for a while. I think you may see him in the Trapp position if he returns to health and form. Having said that, the only starter who looked lost after the first 20 minutes, during which everyone looked lost, was Robinson. He may be our best option 4 years from now, but at this moment Villafana or Lichaj are both better options. (As is Fabian if he isn't retired from international play). Others -- Wood, Green and Ariola -- just aren't at the level that they can compete against Brazil. But again, after the first 20 minutes they were solid, generated decent chances of corners and set pieces and defended well. (The penalty was a total phantom call).
Robinson was, obviously, much better last night. Green played really well, but I don't necessarily see him as Pulisic's back up but a starter. I think if Sarachan had a real match tomorrow, my 11 would look like a 4-1-4-1, with Robinson, Miazga, Brooks and Yedlin in the back, McKennie sitting in front of them, Adams and Pulisic in the middle of midfield, Green and Weah out wide and Altidore (Wood if you prefer) up top.Robinson was our best player in the second half today. I’m sold.
Green should have started and he was the offensive spark we needed. He should be Pulisic’s back up. I thought Shaq Moore was really good as well. He just needs regular playing time in Spain.
