seems like it should be a no-brainer.
Should be. Which means they'll fuck it up by doing something inexplicably dumb like trying to go head to head with the Euros
Nah it’ll be like how it was in 2016. Euros during the day and this tournament at night.
Goddam at how profitable the Centenario was in 2016
I’d like to see how that stands up to a typical Copa’s revenue for a SA host country.
It would be nice if this results in SA players becoming interested in playing in MLS as a result of their experience in the tournament. It’s still a largely untapped source of talent imo.
Please dear god no.
Money always triumphs.
The 2024 version will be in the U.S. for sure.
The Fuck the Euros Cup.
Goal for JAB, Sarge is riding the pine
Gloster and Soto being moved up to Hannover’s 1st team. They’ll be relegated this season, so I guess getting them ready for the BL2.
I don't understand this recent narrative by a big portion of the MNT fanbase where they want to put Adams in the RB/WB hybrid role.
We could do that, or we could play him in his normal roles as a 6/8. You know. Where he's currently killing it at in the Bundesliga.
I feel like a lot of MNT fans just want to get the best 11 names out there and not worry all that much about position.
I mean, does this even do that, though? Who are we replacing Adams with at one of the 3 midfield spots where the lineup looks better?
It’s because in the system that GGG rolled out and close to the system he’s always used that RB will spend 90% of the match as a midfielder. Not saying that’s what he should do but he wouldn’t be playing as a traditional RB.
This is Lima's touch map against Panama. It's a pretty RB-y/WB-y role tbh. They kind of just play through it more than a traditional RB.
But what I worry about more is the ability to utilize Adams' best attribute, which is the relentless high press on defense.
People wanting Adams there isn’t a new thing.
I know, people have been wanting to pigeon hole him there since he was coming up with the red bulls, partially because many though he would never be able to hack it in the midfield, which obviously didn't turn out to be accurate. Part of what makes it frustrating for me.
He’s far too good to put on just one side of the field, no matter what Lima’s touch map looks like.
I don't think the USMNT has ever had such a disruptive player, it would be a shame to put him at RB.
Roster fan poll. Thoughts?
-Not sure Jozy is match fit yet or if we even need a 3rd striker with Weah
-I could take or leave Bradley. (He hadn't looked good in a MNT shirt for a while, but was much better in the last couple)
-Would like to see a little more from Morris before calling him in. Think I'd rather see Holmes or Gooch get a shot first.
-Maybe Zim over CCV, but either is fine.
Otherwise pretty good
i stopped reading at bradley and trapp
why do people still like those guys? especially bradley?
adams and mckennie have the 6 and 8 spots locked down end of discussion
I'm kind of resigned to the fact that both of them are going to be called in. I wish we could see Canouse get a shot, but Bradley is probably one of the few "experience" guys Gregg will call in, and Trapp is kind of his guy, so
I've kind of noticed that the reddit contingent of USMNT fans seem to cling to the old guard worse than most. Don't know why.
you still need backups.
Well when a group of players have accomplished as much as those guys it's hard to let go
i may have misread it, but i read the poll as the preferred roster and starting lineup
thus they still want bradley starting at dm
sorry that site is blocked at work for some reason. I didn't think it was limited to just a starting lineup I thought it was for the whole squad.
it had the whole squad, but it was positionally setup, so it looked like a preferred 11 to go along with the roster.
i’ll reread it though. i’m sure mb and trapp will still be used for depth, but i just can’t for the life of me think of why anybody would want them in a preferred 11 as well with adams and wes being far superior at dm
they listed wes and adams as starting at rm and lm along with bradley at dm just to clarify
wes starting, sargent not in the 18
McKennie with the assist on the first goal.
McKennie is so good in the air it's crazy. He wins these battles so easily that he can play perfectly accurate passes off them.
Pulisic with an assist and goal in 15ish minutes of work
Seriously? They look like training tops.
look at it as punishment for missing Russia
I think they look cool.
Bring back the where's waldos
Omar Gonzalez? Still?
Thought he’d been sent to the glue factory at this point
those forwards are a bummer.
No Sargent or Weah is some bullshit
