Who would I call? Funny you should ask.

This is more fun than guessing who Klinsi will take, I think. The squad announcement for Wednesday's friendly with Russia will be in a few hours and then we can see if mad minds also think alike. Heh, probably not.

As I like to do, the "Forward" line becomes the "Attack" line, thus including wingers. UPDATE: Those we or someone else have confirmed as receiving the call are listed in boldface.


G - Howard, Guzan, Clark

D - Bocanegra
Chandler, Cherundolo, Goodson, John, Lichaj, Parkhurst

D/M -
Cameron

M - Bradley, Dempsey, Diskerud, Jones, Kljestan, Williams

A - Altidore, Boyd, Gatt, F. Johnson, Wondolowski, Zusi









- Greg Seltzer

Why George John out of curiosity?

Greg Seltzer said...

Because Gonzo is still busy and I think John might have a higher international ceiling than Besler - though I surely would not gripe if both were called.

Looks like Mix is in the, well, mix. http://fotball.adressa.no/eliteserien/article257249.ece

Isnt Lichaj hurt?

Greg Seltzer said...

Not that I'm aware of, he was suspended this weekend.

Cathal said...

Greg, a lot of talk bubbling up about Dempsey and his play thus far for Spurs. Thoughts?

Mike said...

definitely thought we would see Zusi and Besler but it is nice to see him call in young players

@ Cathal: I think the complainers are overdoing it, to be sure. He hasn't been in top form yet, but there's guys that have been there a lot longer playing a lot worse. To me, their main issues so far are the midfield injuries and a lack of a big striker that can still play.

The announced roster looks fun, frankly. Nice to see Gyau get a call-up, though it's probably still premature. Agudelo is surprising, but not worth complaining about. About the only complaint I can have is Lichaj still being left off.
