It's a mix. Which players make up that mix is dependent on who you ask... the current US "A" team (IMO) would be Tim Howard GK - Everton (or Keller, but most consider him retired even though he's made no announcement) Steve Cherundolo RB - Hannover 96 Oguchi Onyewu CB - Newcastle Carlos Bocanegra CB/LB - Fulham ?? LB (we really don't have a lock at this position....we have possibilities from both MLS and Europe) Clint Dempsey RM - Fulham Pablo Mastroeni DM - Rapids, MLS ?? DM/CM/AM ( we really have no one to replace Reyna. Ricardo Clark from Houston Dynamo has been paired with Mastro, but he's no lock) Damarcus Beasley LM - Man City (some people might put Convey here) Landon Donovan AM/F - LA Galaxy, MLS ?? F (we have no one to replace McBride....totally open spot, most likely going to MLS) Jimmy Conrad CB - KC, MLS (If Bocanegra is used as a LB, Conrad would start at CB) ?? F (in the event LD is an AM, and we need a second forward instead of another midfielder, same comments as for the first forward) That makes 6 Euro starters, 2 MLS starters, and 3 open spots that can be filled by players from either group (but most likely by MLS players). If any of those 6 Euro players aren't available for a game, the most likely replacement is an MLS player. I'm fully confident that there won't be a huge difference in quality between the team we send to the Gold Cup and the Team we send to the Copa America. The main difference is that the Euros will be at the Gold Cup....mostly because of timing, but also because the GC is more important for the US.
