With our two most critical qualifiers coming up, we are facing a serious centerback emergency. Basically our top 10 options for centerback are either riding the bench, out of season, or playing a different position for their club team. This is very, very troubling. A breakdown: 1. Bocanegra - Hasn't played last 3 games for Santander. Last start: Feb 2. 2. Goodson - Been out of season for last two months, and recently gave up captainship of Brondby after being demoted to the bench. 3. Gooch - Hasn't really played at all for Malaga since last fall. 4. Cameron - Has been on the bench last few games for Stoke - and hasn't played CB for them at all this season. Last start: Feb 23 (pulled after 51 minutes). 5. Ream - Nowhere to be seen at Bolton. Last start: Feb 2. 6. Whitbread - Still coming back from injury. Last start: Dec. 26. (Has never played for USMNT.) 7. Omar Gonzalez - Still in preseason, made plenty of mistakes last qualifier. 8. Besler - Still in preseason, had never started a WC qualifier. 9. Maurice Edu - been playing well at CM in Turkey - last time he played CB was probably last summer at Azteca friendly. 10. Michael Orozco - been playing mostly right-back for Puebla, but at least he's getting minutes. Who's left? If we don't have enough confidence in two of any of the above players, I figure our only option is to bring back Jay Demerit.
