- For those who told me to give up the Eric Lichaj crusade, I say ha! Still, I'm confused as to why the warming Timothy Chandler isn't also on board.
- Despite what he said last week, I am very happy to see no one called from the teams left in the MLS Cup fight. That just would not be cool.
- Chris Wondolowski fans, I think this might be his last chance to seriously bid for Brazil. And I doubt he'll end up with many pitch minutes to do it. Frankly - and this is nothing at all against the guy - but I'm not sure why he's in this very deep group for what at most will be two field spots.
- Obviously, Brad Guzan is carrying some little nag. Landon Donovan and Clarence Goodson also miss out due to injuries.
- My biggest gripe: Where is the ultra-hot Tim Ream? And with two center backs out for this trip, why not also Babajide Ogunbiyi? As it stands, get ready to see a whoooole lot of John Anthony Brooks in these two games.
- I'm also a little disappointed that Joe Corona is not in camp this time, especially with Graham Zusi occupied back home.
