So our favorite time of year is fast approaching: that time where we try to predict which players will be called into Camp Cupcake and be groomed for future positions of valor. Usually only 1-2 inspirations emerge from this Camp each year, while the rest fall away. Who will be the diamond in the rough this year? Will the new coach even have one? (I say yes.) As always, this camp assumes only players from MLS and the Scandinavian countries will be available. Though occasionally Klinsmann did invite some Mexican and other Euro-based players. G: Steffen, Hamid, Guzan, Alex Bono. CB: Besler, Zimmerman, Hedges, Long, Opara RB: Reggie Cannon, ? LB: Ben Sweat, ? CM: Adams, Acosta, Trapp, Delgado, Canouse, Nguyen (!), Feilhaber (?) W: Arriola, Lletget, Amon, Sabbi, Romain Gall, Picault. F: Altidore, Zardes, Dwyer, Bunbury I know Nguyen and Feilhaber are on the older side, but they have flair and experience, and are still playing well, unlike Michael Bradley. Also Lee and Benny are not tainted by the WC failure. Besler is old but still playing well for a CB, and we need his calming presence. Vets we can leave behind: Bedoya, Kljestan, Parkhurst, Spector. Also consider: Nagbe, Roldan, Agudelo, Rowe, Ibarra, Zusi.
