    it looks like we have a bright future w/ our midfielders line up :
    -Lorie Fair
    -Shannon Boxx
    -Niki Serlenga
    -Aly Wagner
    -Devyn Hawkyn
    -Tiffeny Robert
    -Angela Hucles
    -few from U-19

    will there be the next Christine Lilly from this group ?

    Not really. Future is pretty dim. US has creativity problem from midfield. 2 goals in the run of play is pathetic. A tactic fix might work but as far as players are concerned, I see no solution on the horizon.

    it's all up to the coach, but the talents are there to grab. By the way I still believe that Aly Wagner will be a much better player and so is Lorie Fair while Boxx is already there ready to roll any time...

    What the Hell is this with Lorie Fair? She's just not that good. She's smart, good looking, personable and well spoken, all pointing to a successful career. It's time for her to get started.

    Player development is a larger problem. Without a league, the NT staff is going to go the extra mile in spreading training opportunities to avoid a limited player pool.

    2 goals, that was the past you were watching, not the future

    I absolutely do not agree with that assesment.
    In general, the personnel was not the reason for lack of creativity from the midfield. You can put most of the blame on April's style or lack thereof of play.

    May Be, May Be Not: Serlenga, I read she retired from the US National team; might go back if there is no WUSA.

    Yes: Boxx, Wagner, Hucles, Hawkyn, and Bivens for a mid-field role only.

    Definitely NO: Fair and Roberts

    Definitely YES, if her knees stays together, Leslie Gaston.
