USMNT 2020

Recommended Posts

I have no idea what Berhalter's formation or philosophy might be, but what I like from the above is having Adams and McKennie behind Weah and CP.  That would allow Weah and CP the freedom to operate offensively with a tad less defensive responsibility.  It would also help down the flank because both could cover when/if Dest and Robinson make runs.  On paper that looks like a pretty fluid lineup.  I would have never thought that we'd have a player (Reyna) that would push CP outside - especially so soon.  Three years ago, I assumed CP would be right smack dab in the middle of a 4-3-3.

For the last year+, Sergiño was playing on the LEFT side and Reggie Cannon has been the RB. I don't know if adding Antonee Robinson to the mix and moving Sergiño to the right is an upgrade. 

Also, John Brooks will be 30 when this lineup comes to fruition, 2023. Berhalter needs more slow old people in the lineup even if they are playing in the MLS.

Like there is any chance Zardes isn’t starting up top under Gregggggg, outside of the 1/100000 chance Jozy is healthy.

Transfermarkt has him valued at $16.5 million at 17 having scored 1 League and 1 CL goal. He, Sancho, and Haaland are perfect for each other.

Weston started and played all 90 for the Juve opener.

"McKennie is better than others physically because he came from Germany [having been training]," Pirlo said. "Today he did well. He could have done better, because he did something wrong in the building phase. But it was the first game, we can forgive him."

Is Gio Reyna going to be a bigger success than Pulisic in 10 years? 17 year old scoring goals for fun at Dortmund. 

Lol no. Pulisic was doing the exact same thing.

These updates and highlights have me salivating at the prospect of watching our young talent take the pitch for the USMNT ... but then I remember who is managing them.

Beerholder is a karmic gravity well.

I don't see a real difference between the two come 2022, but I do think US will have the advantage back in 2026. Raul Jimenez is still one of the more underrated strikers in the world, and a likeable player to build around (odd being from Mexico 😉).

😱

Sadly they don’t use “Meteoplex” nearly as much as they used to. 

It has been replaced with the much more civilized, yet geographically ignorant “North Texas”.

“Meteoplex” should have been typed as "Metroplex".


I'm now kind of wishing that I had accidentally typed "METEORPLEX".

One of these things is not like the others. 

Man City has to tell you that it is a city?

Any word on the next game?  I believe Mexico has a game against The Netherlands next month.

First window is cancelled.  Nobody wants to come to the US to play.  Think we will have some games in Europe in November

I’m loving eliminating the MLS players. Hopefully Bradley & Altidore don’t get a pass from being excluded because they are in Canada and a short flight to the UK. 🤮

Sebastian Lletget and maybe a Central Defender are the only two MLS players who should be included at the moment anyway. You could also argue Jordan Morris, but keep Roldan STATESIDE!!

The USA is currently a clusterfuck of historic preparations, no country would want to send their team here, nor let a team of domestic players go to their country.

Steffen getting the start today for City in the
Carrabo Cup or whatever it’s called.

Is he going to stay on the team for the season or go out on loan in the coming weeks?

He’s frequently injured, so maybe sticking around and reducing his work load by only put played against the shit teams wouldn’t be the worst thing.
