    I can definitely agree with those players but the exception has to be Earnie Stewart. I know that he's getting up there in age but there isn't one guy on that team who doesn't respect him. I think that he'll be essential throughout qualifying. I never want to see Danny Calif again though.

    Why Mulrooney?
    Although maybe not the "answer" in any position, has ever really played poorly?, or even below standard?
    I think he adds good depth, and has good versatility, and is still relatively young

    MMMM.....

    Well Earnie is getting caught by age but I have a lot of respect for him but I think is time for Memo Gonzalez to step up and cover for Earnie

    1-FCOL he's not THAT bad

    2-agoos has retired so calm down

    3-what?!? he's played quite well in his caps - what's your problem with him?

    4-poor danny - certainly he's had his misery caps, but i say the guy manages to get a little better each time out

    5-i disagree... BUT i think he's down to strictly sub status

    6- :rolleyes:

    Berhalter. He played well during the World Cup, but has cost us a match or two since. Hell, I would take Califf over Berhalter right now.

    That's at least 3-4 years away. Memo just isn't ready for the senior level by any stretch.

    start with the defenders.
    Regis, Berhalter, Vanney. All old and too slow. Regis was never good, Berhalter is consistently beaten and Vanney is just not good enough. I'd rather play without a left back than play with one that is a liability.
    Midfielders. Armas, I would think that we can find a defensive midfielder now that also has offensive capabilities.

    Forwards. Kirovski. He's been on the senior team for over a decade and has only had 2 outstanding games in that time. He can't be any higher than 9 or 8 on the depth chart.

    Come on.

    Jeff Agoos trained many months, helped out his country, and probably played his arse off. Just because he messed up and doesn't deserve to play doesn't mean he should be stoned.

    Precisely.
    Gee, what a lovely thread. :rolleyes:

    The players listed in this thread have put in countless hours of hard work and practice, including countless hours dreaming of wearing a kit with the US badge; when they wear it, they talk about what an honor it is to represent the US. Then we have fans who are skidmarks in the underwear of life taking these reverent players to task because they're not quite at the level required by said skidmarks.

    BigSoccer is about opinions, but not every opinion has to be posted. Then again, decency may not exist anymore.

    Have a wonderful day, ingrates.

    At over 15 posts per day if a BS veteran doesn't know you very well you must be lonely indeed. You can't be putting time into much else, like say relationships with living breathing people who are not on your computer, TV or radio.

    It's great to have opinions, but not so great to have so many shallow rude opinions. Maybe you should try turning off the computer and going to a game, maybe meeting a player or two.

    Sorry about the soapbox...

    Oh, and guys I don't want back... That would be anyone who is actually an American. Regis comes to mind, but I wasn't expecting him back.

    Maybe a better thread would be "Who has retired and won't be back for the Nats."
    Apparently Agoos and Regis.
    I think I also heard Llamosa has called it quits.
    Has Sanneh spoken up since his latest injury?
    Isn't Reyna sitting out a couple years?
    Not retired but I bet Howard makes ManU the priority for the next few seasons.

    Uhh, Cherundolo looks like our answer at RB currently, so I don't think that will happen. Other then that, fine, but I agree with the Armas/Mulrooney sentiment. Both are very solid club players who perform crucial roles for their team but I think Mastro gives us more flair there right now then someone who just clogs it up (which is what Armas and Mulrooney commonly look like on the international stage) and that a Ricardo Clark could even add to this dimension. For WC Qualifying I can deal with it, but I'd like to see a more creative option at DM if we are going to stick with the 4-4-2.

    Uh, you didn't see the Gold Cup game v Brazil I guess. He comes in and his mark was the guy who started the move that lead to their tying goal. He is a solid club guy but is lost out there against international competition.

    Armas should not be starting, ever, over Pablo anymore. He could be a solid bench guy but that is it.
