is rudy gestede (cardiff city) even eligible for the us nats? he came out saying he would be open to representing the US, but i can't see how he qualifies for citizenship, unless he already has it?

Oh, man. So many questions. How involved was Porter with the previous camp in Europe? Is he looking to get his own eyeballs on some players rather than scouts' and assistants' eyes? How many more camps before qualifiers? What players were wanted but couldn't show due to club obligations / whining? Given the New Way Of Doing Things (eeeesh) how long until the roster is basically finalized and the team given some time to gel? Are there players that would get called in only AFTER the US qualifies (Altidore, Agudelo, Gatt, etc)?

Aaaand none of those have answers. Patience is a bitch.
