    Re: USMNT - Gold Cup

    I completely agree with article. I don't see him as any more than a sub for the full Sr Nat'l Team. He showed last Friday he can't play wing for us. He doesn't provide width. He always wants to tuck inside and get the ball and we become too narrow. With that said he still starts with this Gold Cup "B/C Team"

    Re: USMNT - Gold Cup

    A little off topic but looks like there will another US national in the BPL this year. Altidore will play for Sunderland this year. Hopefully it will be more successful than his last BPL stint.

    Re: USMNT - Gold Cup

    #USMNT starting lineup: Rimando; Parkhurst, Orozco-Fiscal, Goodson, Beasley ©; Beckerman; Corona, Diskerud, Torres; Donovan, Wondolowski

    Looks like I was partially wrong. We are actually going with the 4-1-3-2 with Beckerman at CDM and Donovan and Wondo up top. I don't hate it. I assume Klinsy doesn't want to give Stu a full 90 yet. I'm hoping Torres can finally have a solid game in this one. Alexi Lalas just predicted a 6-0 win on Best Soccer Show. I'd be okay with that...

    Tournament to determine the champion of the national teams from North America, Central America and the Caribbean. 12 teams, group play followed by knockout rounds. If you win the Gold Cup you'll have a chance to play in the Confederations Cup which is kind of like a mini World Cup.

    Hope Brek Shea gets some playing time. Love watching that kid play. He flies around the pitch.

    Re: USMNT - Gold Cup

    A little slow thus far. Not really much creativity in the attack and Donovan has been invisible. I'd like to see him track back from his forward spot to get on the ball.

    Everyone looks head and shoulders better than any of the Belize players except Beckerman and Goodson. Man, I hate the fact that Beckerman is an option for any tournament.

    Really? I'm not a Beckerman lover but I don't think he's been bad so far. A couple give aways but also some good recoveries. I think his passing has been above average considering how deep Belize is playing though...

    EDIT: and that was a damn good assist from him...

    I think it might just be how awful his bad plays are when they happen that makes me despise him so much. And yes, there was his usual one excellent contribution to each game that keeps him on the radar.

    Has there been any incisive passes from Beckerman like Geoff Cameron has made recently?

    OH and PS the confusion by beckerman and parkhurst on the far post led to the goal

    Re: USMNT - Gold Cup

    Kyle Beckerman has never made and will never be able to make this pass MNT vs. Panama: Eddie Johnson Goal - June 11, 2013 - YouTube

    and Geoff Cameron is a def mid and should start over Jermaine Jones. Any questions

    I'm not saying he is the greatest ever or anything but I see why Klinsmann plays him. He can tackle in the open field better than almost anyone on our roster and plays very smart, tactically. And his passing this half has been decent. The chipped ball to donovan on the wing, assist, and through ball to torres that all created chances come to mind. I don't want him starting in an important game but I don't mind having on the bench is all I'm saying.
