    Re: ***Official USMNT Thread***

    If anyone's been following the story about the US women's team and their open coaching job. It's been filled by the internim coach Jill Ellis. I think they have two friendlies coming in June against France.

    Anyone catch the first part of the show on ESPN? Really cool, a lot of history I either never knew or forgot about, some good stuff about Julian Green and how he came to choose the US. Looking forward to the rest of it.

    Erik Palmer-Brown is going to make his SKC debut today because he's the only CB available.

    Rough day for him and SKC as a whole. You had to just know with so many missing parts it was going to be difficult. The pk was just him freaking out after an unlucky bounce and his second yellow was because his challenge was just barely too slow. He didn't play bad, maybe a little nervous-looking, but not bad. And he definitely has the size and strength for a CB at 17 so that's exciting. Not sure what they will do next week now, Collin and Opara really need to get healthy fast.

What would your preferred back line look like for the WC?

    I'm with you on this one

    LB: Fabian Johnson
    LCB: Matt Besler
    RCB: Geoff Cameron
    RB: Timmy Chandler

    Besler is the only lock IMO though. He's a solid center back. Fabian will be in the first XI somewhere, hopefully it's left back because that's naturally his best position. Timmy Chandler would bring some serious pace, so I hope Jurgen gives him a chance. Then I'm just praying to god that Omar Gonzalez isn't the first choice next too Besler. He makes so many terrible errors, I just couldn't trust him trying to stick with guys like Ronaldo, Gyan, all the germans, etc. for 90 minutes.

    I'm terrified we'll end up seeing a Beasley-Besler-Gonzalez-Evans back four though. That would be a nightmare.


    ALL IN

    Re: ***Official USMNT Thread***

    This isn't USMNT related, but I don't care. We'll just say that he plays on the same club as 3 guys in the 30-man camp. But you must see this goal by Obafemi Martins if you haven't yet....

    So, US Soccer has hired Lupe Fiasco as their Music Director for the World Cup.

    I have no idea what that entails.

    Re: ***Official USMNT Thread***

    I'm going to try to move this thing past the raging wildfire of Landon's exclusion. First, I really am digging the fact that JK named the final roster so early. I'd much rather go into the 3 friendlies with the focus being on the guys who are going to Brazil instead of taking time away to allow more competition among the 30-man preliminary roster.

    Two, Klinsmann confirms that Cameron is a center back, a decision that I want to take out for dinner and make sweet love to.

    D, the door has not necessarily closed completely on Landon to Brazil.

    Just another tidbit, I love that they included Cody Cropper in camp even if he wasn't officially on the 30-man prelim roster.
