The ball is round.

Nearly everything is set for my impending move and I actually have a moment to breathe, so gosh, shall we talk some CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying? I am really hoping to write up some much kinder US player ratings after the St. Louis opener tomorrow night.

Regarding the line-up: I am not going to get what I want, but here that is anyway...

3 cheers for wanting Yedlin to be right back. I continue to be confused at how reluctant Klinsman is to use him there given a pretty solid showing in the WC against very good wingers. I get it, he is young and occasionally makes mistakes. Has he met Mr. Alvarado?

I would switch FabJo and Morris, and start Nagbe over Mix. Otherwise, I love this more than I should as a grown man...

Here is my thinking on these two items:

1 - I considered your wing switch several times, but in the end I wanted a) FabJo on his best crossing foot, b) more time together for FabJo and Yedlin working a side & c) Morris available at the end of many Ream lead passes.

2 - I would likely never start a debutante in a WCQ, let alone at the position. And I think it is long overdue for Mix to see proper time there.

1 - All completely with merit. I seemed to remember FabJo cutting in well and mixing with the forwards in other starts on the left side, so bias of memory. Either way, really...
2 - Obviously valid point. I've always been more of a "throw them in the deep end" kind of person. I feel like Nagbe would handle it well, especially against such a minnow...

Would be very happy to see your lineup start the game.
