    So... at least until Lima starts playing in the midfield again, it should start like this.

    Steffen; Lima, Zimmerman, Long (c), Lovitz; Trapp, Roldan; Baird, Mihailovic, Arriola; Zardes

    Bradley and Ebobisse are dropped for Trapp and Arriola.

    Good: No Ebobisse
    Bad: Zardes and Roldan start instead of Ramirez and Lletget

    GGG is clearly the type of manager who has no problem playing favorites. Trapp, Steffen and Zardes? C’mon, Gregg.

    Trapp is an improvement over Bradley. Arriola is a Berhlater guy because he plays wide. But does he do it effectively at a high level? eh.

    But that phase of USMNT is down the road.

    Hmm. Interesting. Looking forward to it.

    Edit to add: I think I rate Arriola higher than most of BS. Haven't any idea if I'll look foolish or not for that after a Jan Camp game....

    Edited again to say: I agree w/CU soccer about Lletget & Ramirez (but not as concerned about Ggg "playing favorites")

    Well, this will be a good Mikey v Trapp evaluation tool. Though CR is a tougher test.

    Delgado, Rosenberry, and Canouse do not make the squad today.

    Edit: Delgado, not McKenzie

    I truly need US Soccer to start releasing their lineups like this. Their graphics are stupid.

    Where's Canouse?

    He's only the best DM in camp.

    Positive:
    - Roldan and Mihailovic pairing gets another look against a tougher side.
    - Baird switched to the left where he belongs as a striker by trade.
    - Trapp switched out for Bradley as a like-for-like experiment. (may have gone Canouse, but not the ball circulator which may be vital to Gregg).

    Negative:
    - Zardes gets another shot over Ramirez after a bright cameo for the latter.
    - Lovitz stays in the lineup over Cannon simply because the former is left-footed.

    I always wondered how he'd respond to being a reserve. It's been about 13 years and there's no shortage of delusion in his mind.

    Sorry Jond you must not have got the Memo... Greg needs to see more of Trapp and Bradley before he can make up his mind that they are in fact better than any other midfield option he has available to him.

    Disappointed is seeing Zardes start but maybe if he has another stinker, GB will start to see the light? There is no way he's on the team when the Euro people arrive... no matter how much GB pushes him to the front. He's just not International Quality
