Thinking back to 02 it seems to me that Beasley and Mastroeni were two players that were a bit off the rader that were included in the team and saw minutes for the team. I keep seeing threads about Rolfe and Casey as well as others who seem to be out of the picture, yet posters think they have a shot. Does Arena maybe see youth and inexperience as a plus. Is it better to have a few young players who are too dumb (or unseasoned) to know they should be afraid of the other team in a world cup? Who fits this definition the best Adu? Conrad? Dunivant? Casey? My memory may be a bit off on Mastroeni, but Beasley had only a few caps before he was trotted out in the wc. Will Arena use this tactic in 06? Does he even think this way?
