    World Soccer Daily just made mention that Arena will be naming his 35 players for contention on ESPN. Does anyone know any more details about this? Is it Sportscenter or ESPNews?

    Or did I hear incorrectly and it is that he will name his final roster on ESPN?

    I think they said last night the final roster was to be announced live on ESPN May 2.

    The final 35, not final 23. It's today.

    WSW made it seem like he would be announcing his 35 live today...but based on the other thread I find my answer(probably should have looked there first anyway):

    Will not announce even the 35 today.

    Mods, apologies, please lock and close this thread.

    I don't know that we need to...but I'm not a mod.

    Your update brings us to an interesting thought. Why did he change his mind? Was the field muddled by last night's lackluster performance? Did some players drop down, or did he feel like a few stepped up.

    I think what could be holding this up is the 3rd and 4th striker debate. The only one to show any goal scoring form in Internationals recently is Twellman, whereas Ching has been on fire in MLS.

    I also think guys like Albright and Olsen are suddenly in the mix due to their uptick in form/recovery from injury, and a long history with Arena.

    It will be interesting to see if these next 3 MLS games do somehow cause some changes in Bruce's decision.
