    I'm going with this too, Chandler solely based on fitness/form.

    Early guess at the 7 cuts: Yedlin, Brooks, Parkhurst, Corona, Davis, Wondolowski, and Edu.

    Parkhurst v. Evans is a coin-flip, not on ability at outside back, but in trying to read Klinsmann's mind. Haunted by Klinsmann's "Brad Evans has right back locked down."

    It's so hard for me to make a good guess. So many of these guys are competing for one spot. I would probably leave:

    Corona - Meh. Never looked like anything special.
    Davis - Not good enough for this level. Donovan and Zusi are better at his job.
    Evans - Not good enough. Parkhurst is better and can play CB.
    Yedlin - Could be a fixture in 2018. Will battle Chandler for a spot this year.
    Beckerman - Coin flip between him and Edu. I almost can't call it.
    Wondo - I'd like to see him there for sentimental reasons, but I feel like he's just a lesser Johannsson. Boyd offers more variety to our group.
    Goodson - In a battle with Brooks/Gonzo for the 3rd CB spot. He is steady and reliable. Brooks has more upside and more risk. I'm not sure which Jurgen will favor, but I lean towards the potential of Brooks.

    Yedlin, Brooks, Evans, Corona, Davis, Green, Wondo.

    Thought Wondo was in but if Jurgen considers Donovan a forward...well, we ain't taking 6 forwards.

    Only guy I think has no shot whatsoever is Corona. Which is what I said about Findley last time so...

    Ok presuming JK brought 30 players to see some players battle for spots, this is what I see

    Yedlin vs Evans vs Chandler: 1 or 2 will get cut imo

    Parkhurst vs Beasley for the LB back up spot

    Edu vs Beckerman: for the backup holding role

    Green vs Davis: for the specialty sub role (assuming Green is not already on the squad via a pre deal)

    Goodson vs Brooks: for the last CB spot (assuming Omar recovers)

    Corona vs Mix: For the back up CM/AM role

    Wondo vs Boyd: For late sub goal poacher role

    Corona, Evans, Yedlin, Edu, Davis, Wondo (hoping...or maybe Boyd).
    I don't know about the 7th. Green or Chandler/Brooks (depends where JK sees Cameron playing).

    Going a little unconventional.....

    Evans - Good defender but offers nothing going forward. Chandler & Yedlin will be on the 23 if they clean up the small defensive errors. Also goes against tactics(Bunker/w ALL OUT COUNTER). Cameron is the #1 RB

    Davis - Great left foot but cannot hold possession against international competition and is a defensive liability.

    Green - Great talent and skill but his his tactical maturity of the game isn't there yet. He's only 19, so that's understandable.

    Altidore - His form is more than an aberration of his season at Sunderland. He checked out but he also made movements that took him out of play, struggled with his touch and didn't take his chances he did have when they came. Should have had 4 goals(not including the disallowed goal). He's in real danger of being left off. How many more chances will he get after a 2010 WC where he had 0 shots. Needs an impressive camp.

    Johannsson - Due to injury... I'm not sure he's recovered and it's clearly affecting his form. Needs an impressive camp.

    Brooks - Same as Green. Great 2018 prospect.

    Beasley/Parkhurst - There's actually a chance that both could be left off depending on the performance of the CB's and Chandler. Fabian is the #1 LB and Chandler can play LB so if the CB's have a good camp, the extra depth may not be needed by bring both players. For the sake of this post, at least one will be left off. Best pure defender will make the roster as the backup LB.

    I agree but for Boyd/ Wondo, they are just completely different players and Boyd only natural target forward back-up. Seems like a Wondo/ AJ/ Lando

    edit: guess Chandler is also a surprise for me, given lack of call-ups and recent injury/ card suspension meaning he has played just a couple of games in 2014.

    I just can't see Jozy or Aron missing out. I'd put the odds for Jozy at 0% and Aron would be a huge stunner.

    The best performing strikers from the camp and send-off games.... if the best consist of Dempsey, Wondo, Boyd and Donovan then so be it...

    LULZ....

    My Predictions for the Sad 7:
    Yedlin- Def not ready.
    Edu
    Davis
    Wondo
    Parkhurst
    Corona
    Goodson

    Players who maybe you can debate their appearance in the WC squad but have a good chance of making the team:
    Jozy- Outside that Hat trick vs Bosnia, he scored I believe a grand total of 2 goals for his club since then pretty dismal If you ask me. Just saying he hasn't been in exactly fine form lately.

    Chandler- The whole Nats thing over the last couple years has just been tiring. He's interested one day and not the next guess it's that time now to be interested. He shows flashes but I don't think he is as good as some make him to be.

    Green-A talent to look out for but is it really the time now? Klinsy most likely will seem to think so

    I don't think JK is dragging Chandler and Green to camp just to leave them both behind. One of them's going to go.

    Corona, Evans, Edu, Davis, Yedlin, Beasley and Boyd probably are the ones that will get cut.
