Discussion in 'USA Men: News & Analysis' started by Real Corona, Jan 6, 2013.
To be announced in less than two hours on Fox Soccer Channel.
The name of this thread fooled me
There are so many snubs and ridiculously bad selections for this camp ahead of the Canada friendly, I don't know where to begin my analysis in the form of complaints.
(note to self, post this in about 45 minutes.)
I would guess not everyone will make this week's camp, there will be stragglers later in the week or early next week.
The title trolled me, thanks Real Corona
"very intriguing news about Landon Donovan" so teases Fox Goals on Sunday
Is there an infomercial for some prostate med called prosvent on fsc right now?
EDIT: Judging from above comment, I guess not...
U.S. ROSTER BY POSITION – Detailed Roster
GOALKEEPERS (3): Tally Hall (Houston Dynamo), Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire)
DEFENDERS (9): Steven Beitashour (San Jose Earthquakes), Tony Beltran (Real Salt Lake), Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City), A.J. DeLaGarza (LA Galaxy), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), Connor Lade (New York Red Bulls), Alfredo Morales (Hertha Berlin), Justin Morrow (San Jose Earthquakes), Jeff Parke (Philadelphia Union)
MIDFIELDERS (8): Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Alejandro Bedoya (out of contract), Brad Davis (Houston Dynamo), Mix Diskerud (Rosenborg), Brad Evans (Seattle Sounders), Benny Feilhaber (Sporting Kansas City), Joshua Gatt (Molde), Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City)
FORWARDS (5): Juan Agudelo (Chivas USA), Will Bruin (Houston Dynamo), Edson Buddle (Colorado Rapids), Eddie Johnson (Seattle Sounders), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes)
Is this the actual roster or just a prediction?
It's the actual roster
Too dumb to do the math on any snubs but at first blush like this
No Pontius/DeLeon will probably be considered the biggest snubs.
Buddle over Cooper/Gordon/Lenhart/Sapong is interesting.
KC's outside backs are snubbed but connor lade, AJ Delagarza and Tony Beltran? DeLaGarza showed in Omar's abscense nothing that made you think nmational teamer. Also Id take Gaddis or Williams in camp over those three.
Actually, mls watchers are probably going to roast klinsman over this once its fully digested.
Alfredo Morales is not a great fullback. Oh well.
No love for CJ Sapong?
Guys I'm really glad to see:
Morrow, Besler, Omar, Lade, Beitashour, Beltran, Bruin, Gatt, Mix and Wondo
Oh shit no Dax. That sucks, Pontius and Deleon too. That's disappointing.
Think Dax is presently a better player than beckerman
What has Benny done to deserve a recall? Is he just there to make up the numbers?
They said Pontius was nursing a groin injury
Nick Rimando would have been called in but still nursing a shoulder injury.
Jermaine Jones and Maurice Edu may called in later.
No Brek Shea due to a toe injury.
Alan Gordon and Chris Pontius with groin injuries.
Didn't you hear? hes to busy with his transfer to to Arsenal
That's a crazy lineup. He's definitely catering to Houston fans for the game at BBVA.
Pontius, Rimando, Shea, Gordon are injured. . Edu and Jones may join later. And of course Fox was BS about "intriguing news" - Landon not being in camp isn't news its the status quo.
Would've liked to see Conor O'Brien. I like Lade but for the national team that's a real reach.
A.J. DeLaGarza (LA Galaxy)?
Take that, Guam.
His houston selections are very defensible. Some of his others, not so much.
