I like what Greg B is putting down so far, I cant complain much. Hes a man with a plan it looks like so far. That said, if i could nitpick about anything, its about leaving about a half dozen guys who could offer something that is currently not available, and I view that as an unnecessary handicap. It gets harder to leave "no stone unturned" when the talent pool is expanding at the rate it is, but despite the adequate start we are experiencing, i see more than a few omissions that could visually help us down the line. There are a couple of "old guys" who fell through the cracks who could help us a-la Lletget. At central D? I guess the surprise names not called into camp were Parker and Opara for me. I get why lots of people are high on Long, but is he really better than Parker or Opara? that Im not too sure. Of Long and Parker, IMO i think Parker is the better of the two defenders, but at the same time when Long has been called on by the nats, he has responded big; so thats a wash. I do sincerely think "old man Opara" is visually better than both of them though. Perhaps a half-season as the anchor of the loons re-enforces that. Midfield? Im still stuck on Rowe as someone who could give us something. We need someone who can give us that Feilhaber flare in the middle of the park, and any time Rowe has been brought in, He has responded at the USMNT level, that cant be debated. When he puts on the jersey, he brings it up a notch. To me, its similar to Lletget, and it cannot/should not be denied. You gotta have wild card on the bench, and while Benny is past it, Rowe certainly is not. Forward, I dont got much, Im happy Ramirez finally got a look. He is no worse than a Brian Ching, someone who offers us something useful off the bench we might currently lack. Hopefully he continues to be brought in. I COMPLETELY understand if it didnt happen, but I would like to see Mr. Agudelo get a last chance dance with the nats to himself. I wouldnt lose any sleep over if he didnt get called in, but I think he could be a #4 forward option possibly. It might be viewed as nothing more than "18-23" stuff, but I literally dont know how many times we can go over the importance of guy #18-23, especially with how much it has bitten us in the rear end, especially under the Klinsmann regime (and lesser under the Arena regime). Its to justifiably PTSD point at the nats level who are our last 5-6 guys on the roster for very, very obvious reason......its not a nervous twitch for us any longer, its more than that. Frankly, I cant think of many teams that have been snakebitten on guys 18-23 as we have; that have just flat out not responded when their numbers have been called; look no further than Brad Davis, Robbie Finlay, Mix Disk, Kevin Bacon.....and who was not there at their expense for whatever stupid reason. It matters who is on our bench, and just because folks are chronologically advanced, doesnt mean they cant offer us something.
