    ***Official USMNT Thread***

    We're long due for a consolidated thread for the National team.

    If this is true, it'd be a HUGE get: Report: Bild says Julian Green has selected the USMNT over Germany | ProSoccerTalk

    Really excited about the possibility of having Julian Green play for the USMNT for years to come.

    Re: ***Official USMNT Thread***

    Forgive me if I am not overly excited about Green yet. Jermaine Jones bust. Tim Chandler bust to this point. Only Fabian Johnson has been worth a darn recently that chose US over Germany and it really wasn't much of a question with him. Green looks good hopefully not just hype.

    Jermaine Jones is far from a bust.

    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Speaking of Germans, Brooks isn't capped to the USMNT yet correct?

    If this is true Gedion Zelalem is next on the our recruiting list! Hope Klinsmann can add him to the US

    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    a few examples of you are wrong

    Said recently first off. 2nd It makes sense you would say Jones wasn't a bust or a liablity if you think Mastroeni was good. 3rd I love Benny Feilhaber but what has he contributed on the biggest stage for the Mens team. He was great in 2005 for the youth team but you have to admit his Men's career has been unrealized potential. I would love to be wrong about that. 4th Herc solid, dont want to bash on him but nah. 5th Holden is awesome injuries have plagued him.

    Funny you bring up Holden as proof for a quality Jones. You realize if Holden doesn't get that first knee injury Jones never wears the US shirt and Bradley Holden pairing is one of the best CM mid pairings in the world.


    Edit - Benny is Brazilian FYI that was his dual citizenship. Herc Mex, etc. I was talking specifically about the players that chose US RECENTLY over Germany.

    The pro Mexico crowd should be a good challenge before heading to Brazil. That said, we haven't scheduled Mexico down south since 2008: Mexico.

    I am making a case for internstional footballers generally and your " recent" comment is non-sensical. To determine a pool of players useless because a few didnt meet expectations is foolish. Maybe fred should stop recruiting since he recently didnt get Vaughn.

    Recent for me was the last WC cycle leading up to 2010 and this WC cycle to 2014.

    I really do apologize for not being specific. I certainly understand how you would have absolutely no context for what I meant when I said recently. And then I did it again, thanks for pointing it out.

    I certainly accept your apology. For those of us that have a broader perspective of the game it is easy for us to mock the uninformed.
