Jozy was good at times in the last game. He still needs to improve, but he's young. ----------------Timmy----------------- --Spector---Mo Edu--Goodsen---Lichaj-- -----------Holden-----Bradley--------- --Bedoya--------Dempsey---------Shea-- ------------------EJ------------------
Lichaj---Onyewu--Bocanegra---Dolo Gooch needs minutes, and Lichaj needs time with our best to offer.
-------------Guzan------------- -Dolo---Gooch----Boca---Lichaj- ---------Jones---Bradley------- --Holden-----------------Shea-- ----------Dempsey-------------- -----------------EJ------------
Shea, R. Smith, Garza, Opara, Ream, Mix, Salgado, Franklin, Beckerman, Bunbury..
I thought Holden was one of the best players in the game. He did look fatigued with 15 minutes left, though. Hit one of the post. Also, stole possession with a nasty tackle that nearly resulted in a goal.

If Szetela decides he wants to work hard, it could be a positive move.
I think the 2nd line-up is spot on.
There is so much unwarranted Findley hate from this game. He didn't receive any viable service. The midfield was completely out of sync.
Michael completely shut down Lampard.. he was a ghost. The only omission that stood out to me was Podolski. Also, I think DeMerrit had a bit better game than Gooch. He covered Rooney like a glove, and it took 15 minutes for Gooch to settle in.
I agree completely with this line-up. Torres or Stu need to start in the middle.
The US will show they're last 8 material this game! -----------Timmy----------- -Dolo--Gooch-DeMerrit-Boca- -------Clark---Bradley----- -Donovan-----------Dempsey- ------Findley-Jozy--------- Subs: Torres, Herculez, Holden.
I'd take healthy and in-form Herculez/Buddle over unfit Charlie, at this point.
Someone that hasn't overreacted to one game?! Shocking. That said, I hope Jozy continues the good form.
I want to see the Sasa Curcic interview haha..
My starting XI prediction: -------------Timmy-------------- -Spector--Gooch-Boca--Bornstein- ----------------Edu------------- -Holden----Bradley-----Beasley-- -----------Dempsey-------------- --------------Donovan----------- Subs: Davies, Bedoya, Clark.

Overall, solid list Ives. I agree on your Bedoya comments. My list: GK: Timmy, Guzan, Maurcus. CB/FB: Gooch, Boca, Spector, Dolo, Bornstein, DeMerrit, Goodsen, Castillo. Mid: Dempsey, Donovan, Bradley, Clark, Holden, Feilhaber, Edu, Bedoya, Torres. FWD: Davies, Findley, Jozy.

This is spot on. He hasn't done much in Mexico, although he has played consistently.

He's being cheeky. Bilbao only uses Basque players.

If Deuce is out, it will most likely be Jozy and Findley/Landon up top. Maybe Michael Bradley should get a look at CF, since we're deeper in midfield.

If the rest of the league let da Luz slip to RSL, they could end up regretting it.

Think you've seen enough to list a top 5ish prospects? (no keepers, obviously) I need/want Da Luz and McInerney to show well. They both seem like players RSL would snag.
I want Da Luz at RSL.
Why would you include Edu, a CDM, in this post?

The fact that Freddy has Hull as an option, is incredible to me. Hull is going down this year.
