What would I do?

Again, I am not in training to watch (or allowed to request any specific reps, if you can believe that... hrmph!), so grab the salt shaker. The truth is I'm not totally sure what Klinsi should do. I feel strong on knowing what he shouldn't do, but let's not go there, lest I be ruled a duplicitous traitor. In that light, I'm gonna just stick with the alignment from Friday night and hope it spaces as well without snowshoes.





Da Bease stays in, moving up to where he belongs. Edu fronts Goodson to provide added quickness at his gate. Mikey has more freedom to go forward from the right, to reach the channel where he does much of his offensive construction for the USMNT. Orozco Fiscal? Yeah, him, because he is more familiar with the movement and moves of Mexican players. Cameron can get DMB's great tract-back help on the left.

Hmm. Actually, that wasn't so hard to put together. I think a point could be there for the taking, but it will probably require goals. Maybe I should buy a red rotary phone...

At first I was concerned that Orozco-Fiscal wouldn't be as ready for the altitude as the others, and not be ready to start.

But actually Puebla too is at 7000ft. He's probably better acclimated than the rest of the roster!

I like this. Bringing in Orozco-Fiscal makes a ton of sense here.

I could live with this. Which means there is no chance in hell Klinsi will go for it.

I'd put Altidore in DMB's spot, DMB in Cameron's spot, and Cameron at RB.

Boyd steps up as target forward.

Greg Seltzer said...

Why on Earth would you move Altidore?

Eddie Johnson off the bench

I think Jozy is best playing off somebody. He's coming into his own as hold up man for us, but I don't think that is his best position necessarily.

I'd play him in a similar role that Gomez plays now with Boyd being the bruiser.

Greg Seltzer said...

Truly baffling stuff, buddy. First off, when did you get this notion Altidore is best when playing off someone? And isn't that what Dempsey does? And how is Boyd more of a bruiser?

I'm not sure what else the guy could do to show he is the most prototypical #9 we've ever produced.

dikranovich said...

greg, you do realize that jozy altidore has one hattrick with the us mens team, and that was when he played off of ching against t and t back in 09.

Greg Seltzer said...

Is that it?

dikranovich said...

Gomez and Altidore just swapped positions...lets see if it works.
