    I think Adams should be back by November for sure and maybe October.

    Yeah, agreed. Reminds me of the ole "Morales wasn't good in 2015, no reason to call him up now!"

    A few posters have mentioned here that Alvarado has been good-to-excellent recently in Mexico, and maybe even captaining his side? I don't follow the league at all, but would be interested in hearing more about his performances, and certainly getting him back into camp at some point (if he can surpass Omar).

    He was horrid when Klinsy tried him out (one of his bold moves that failed, though I appreciated the effort), but certainly would like to see him again if he deserves it, especially considering he is only 27.

    Chandler was never going to be good enough to play for Germany and Jonathan Gonzalez switched to play for Mexico and then was left off the World Cup roster.

    It’s sad that I’m scared of losing to Canada, and that I, am looking up these scores. Canada only won 1-0 away today, Canada had a red card a bit into the 2nd half. That, combined with their win at home puts them at a GD of +7.

    With how shit we are, I wouldn’t be surprised if we lose to them in Toronto. I suppose a draw would be nice, and would put us in the drivers seat to win the group.

    My Revised Roster (not what I think 3G will do)

    GK: Zack Steffen, Ethan Horvath, Brady Scott

    RB: Reggie Cannon, Nick Lima

    CB: Miles Robinson, Walker Zimmerman

    CB: Tim Ream, Ventura Alvarado

    LB: Sergino Dest* (Eric Lichaj), (Antonee Robinson)

    M6: Weston McKennie (CPT), Jackson Yuiell

    M8: Paxton Pomykal, Alex Mendez

    10: Sebastian Lletget, Matko Miljevic

    RW: Jordan Morris, Paul Arriola

    FW: Josh Sargent, Jozy Altidore, Sebastian Soto

    LW: Christian Pulisic, Duane Holmes


    Note: instead of bringing in a MLS keeper away from his club, I’d say call in Scott.

    Note: Out due to injury or just returning from injury: Adams, Morales, Yedlin, Brooks, Weah, Miazga

    Note: u23’s I wanted to bring in but can wait on: Richards, Ferreira, Ledezma, Gloster, Llanez, Servania.

    Note: Cut from this group - Aaron Long, Tyler Boyd, Daniel Lovitz, Wil Trapp, Michael Bradley, Gyasi Zardes, Cristian Roldan, Corey Baird. Long, Roldan, and Boyd are still in the picture but it’s time to see from someone else.

    Note: I’m hoping Dest accepts the call up. Regardless, I’d probably call up his replacement, Lichaj, anyways. Note that if Dest does refuse, then call up Antonee.

    Notes: Weston McKennie is going to have to drop back into the 6. I’m adamant about not relying on Bradley/Trapp in these games, and Adams/Morales are injured and I’m not ready to rely on anyone else as a starter.

    Note: Initially, I was going to run out different XI against Cuba and Canada, but given how poorly we played against Mexico/Uruguay.... this team needs reps. Although, I may start Lima against Cuba and Cannon against Canada.

    Note: subs vs Cuba (Soto, Miljevic, Mendez)

    Note: subs vs Canada (Altidore, Holmes, Arriola)

    That and to give them the experience at this level.

    There’s no need to see Zardes, Trapp, and Roldan continue to prove they’re not that next level we want them to be at. (Although, I’m not completely over Roldan yet).

    The strategy for the first 23 is going to be to win the games and continue working on implementing the new system. That means that we should expect to see many of the same guys with a change here or there.

    I think that we'll see both Altidore and Bradley.
