Good points all, I'm glad we're past it, beyond the Beau Dure's, LA Times guys, Marko's etc who disagree and think more should happen, but I do find your breakdown here interesting and kinda funny. It is one of the weirdest things ever. I wonder what French message boards, and French reddit was like in 2010? Regardless, it's all a mystery and you brought up a good point I forgot about the fitness check he refused, is that in itself a kind of tantrum (of the, "don't blame my argument on PMS, Its not PMS, I'm right! kind of sexist styled angle"), or just trying to avoid it? I don't know, but it's particularly rich in craziness, and I forgot about the fitness angle to the insiders comment to Doyle. I don't really believe it though, I will say that, in the sense that I think the fitness had nothing to do with it, and that Berhalter just didn't want the will he or wont he problem bedevilling his Xi's and his scenarios of subbing. He probably just wanted Reyna in that consensus position which would have been Morris vs Wales, Reyna vs England and Nada vs Iran. I think he trusted Aaronson as first off the bench attacker, particularly on the left, and Reyna was probably planned initially to be Weah's first sub until he had the melt down. I think the only relevance to the tightness was that it further insured he wouldn't be doing anything like Davies suggested (Reyna or Weah as False 9/RWF).
