arriola.............Morris............Yedlin

..........Mckennie...........pulisic

..........................bradley

..............................................Adams

Luvil............Brooks........miazga

............................Horvath

adams will prolly be the rb/cm for this team. it looks like if yedlin cant play winger....hell be benched if adams does well at RB/CM.

Mckennie is the #8 while pulisic is the #10....Morris could be a good player for us with that speed n skills(some). These 2 games will be big for him. Building around adams, pulisic, brooks, steffen, mckennie and morris is good sign for the program. We will add more pieces down the road...like sargent, weah, dest, mendez, sands,konrad...ect. Im excited, berhalter knows his Xs and Os.


:D

not a bad showing at all...we dominated possession. trapp was good. Morris isnt a winger. he wasnt a factor!

Brooks can pass. good passing overall



mckennie got hurt. i hope its not bad:(

Boring match with a fluke goal and an Ecuador side which for some reason came to park the bus

Adams is a good player but against stronger teams he will get exposed playing RB, Pulisic was poor but he is low on confidence while Zardes and Morris aren’t starting caliber

Positives were the two CBs and Adams despite playing out of position

adams is off to germany. Right now , him n brooks are our best players...pulisic needs to have good yr next season. he is capable of it...Im surpised long has jumped ahead of miazga and he was quite good yesterday. Mckennie got better. trapp was wonderful. he is a good passer but he is too small to play that DM spot but he was good yesterday.






Llanez is so underrated. He is a damn good winger

So berhatler benched yedlin, bradley and miazga :eek: good!

adams, trapp and long did well. its not a good sign for dem 3 players!



adams is a very important player for us. Dude is becoming a star. He has made leizpig into a better team. :eek: Top amaerican player. Mckennie has been a stud for schalke...he will become a beast for us. Brooks is one of da best centerbaclks in the bundelsiga...his passing skills are top notch:eek: pulisic needs to be more consistent.

add more players from this good U20 USA team....we will be rocking in a few yrs :strong:

?????.................novakovich............Pulisic


...............mckennie........adams

..........................trapp


???????.........Brooks....vickers......Dest

..........................Steffen

novakovich could be going to feyenoord this summer. He may be our starting striker soon. Zardez and jozy wont cut it. I would keep jozy as backup tho like the way bradley is playin for this team. Arriola is a back up. Morris is a striker but give him more chances out wide n see

adams is our kante. he is so important to us cuz he breaks up plays, is tidy on the ball and promotes attacks.

By the end of the match, Adams was the best player on the pitch. Rarely beaten when defending, something that his young career is known for, and extremely calm and composed in possession, aiding the U.S. to completely control the game, he was an all-encompassing full-back-turned-central-midfielder. This was a plan that worked rather wonderfully.


I think dest is gonna get promoted to the mens team soon enough.He is wayyy better than yedlin. Trapp has actually been doing well for us. He has had 3 straight good games . He can pass and maintain possession somewhat.... Vickers is getting better. I like his game. We will see.

mckennie could miss the gold cup....whos gonna re place him? pax pomyal?


McKennie was forced off in the 68th minute, not long after he went up for an aerial challenge and landed on the outside of his left foot, causing to the ankle to violently roll over.

From Schalke’s official statement:

“The U.S. (men’s) national team confirmed to Schalke that he hasn’t broken anything, but it looks like he has bruised the bone and damaged a ligament. He will soon see a foot specialist in the U.S. to determine the exact nature of the injury.”

While Schalke didn’t provide an estimated timeframe for McKennie’s return, Tottenham Hotspur and England forward Harry Kane has suffered a series of ankle injuries quite similar to that of McKennie over the past two or three seasons. Kane has generally been out of action for 6-10 weeks, with an additional 2-4 weeks of live action typically required to regain his full form and fitness. For USMNT purposes, the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup kicks off on June 15, 12 weeks from today.

Schalke currently sit 15th in the Bundesliga, three points and one spot clear of the relegation playoff spot, with eight games left to play.

good read

yep...john brooks is a great passer. basically without adams, brooks, pulisic and mckennie we r shit..prolly so :D Build the team around them and hopefully some of the players from the u20 are good to go!

PASSING OUT OF THE BACK WAS A WEAKNESS

One of the disappointments from the game was how the U.S. team struggled for long stretches to play the ball out of the back. Tim Ream and Omar Gonzalez weren’t mobile enough and DeAndre Yedlin wasn’t able to get forward effectively. Matt Miazga wasn’t great in the first half but had a significantly improved second half.


Against a better opponent, the absence of McKennie and Adams was sorely missed. It probably makes it impractical to play difficult opponents in a 4-1-4-1 formation without the two Bundesliga youngsters.


Berhalter clearly wants his team to pass well out of the backline to move the entire team further up the field. In the months ahead, that will probably be his biggest focus.

USA drew Canada and Cuba in the CONCACAF Nations League. I guess it will be cool to play Canada in meaningful games but in reality these are hardly strong tests. It looks like they will play Jamaica and Venezuela before the Gold Cup
