Sorry I have fallen behind on Clipboard, it has been hella-busy around here this week. I will get the #10 slot up later today, but for now let us dive into the waters of, sheesh, we have a metric ton of capable #8 candidates. There are others left off the list from the glut. Bradley is the "Duh!" pick to start, with Jones also an obvious player of impact. After that, it gets crowded.
Morales has not dazzled, but some of that may have to do with odd assignments. He will have the chance to grow exponentially in the Bundesliga this season. The ever-capable Kljestan is heating up in New York. Meanwhile, we are all trying to figure out a way to get Trapp n the mix. I believe he is the eventual successor to Bradley as two-way traffic director. When Jones slows with age, there is going to be a battle royale for the spot behind Mikey, and McCarty has only been one of the most overlooked USMNT pool players for years now.
Coming back into frame: Sacha Kljestan
Need calls: Dax McCarty, Wil Trapp
