The combination of DeRo and Donovan is proving to be the most potent in Major League Soccer, as the two have just been electric together up front for the Quakes. Those two at full health could bring another MLS Cup to Yallop and San Jose. The sad part - is anyone watching? Martino and Buddle both collected points off of a corner kick, but Columbus' defense lets them down against New England. I wasn't particularly impressed with Ricardo Clark this week, especially in his defensive responsibilities. Magee, OTOH, put away a clutch goal for the Metros to secure a point in OT. From the numbers, it looks like DMB lit up LA in Open Cup action, and fouled Bo right out of the game in probably the most meaningful game of the week, as Chicago is now in the USOC final. It is good to see Convey once again getting big time minutes in DC. He had a lot of shots, but didn't convert any. I hope Convey improves his finishing, as I think it is the one aspect of his game that prevents him from being a superstar. Also, Doug Warren will be a player to keep an eye on. Rimando's injury is serious, and if Countess cannot get off Colin Clarke's bench, Warren will seriously compete for the GK job. Good to see a couple of U-17s getting minutes in the form of Gaven and Memo, but unless they see some serious time over the next year with the Metros and Galaxy, it would be a real shock to see them on next year's Olympic Squad. Still, a very good week for the U23's in MLS. Gooch also appears to be getting good minutes in Belgium, although he's lining up as a central defender. I still think his role with the Olympic team is as a right back. Here's my updated U23-11: Buddle-Donovan Beasley-Beckerman-Martino-Johnson Convey-Gray-Borchers-Onyewu Countess The only significant change is putting Donovan back up top and moving Johnson to right mid. Eddie has played well there for Dallas, and right midfield is a serious weakness for the U23's. If Eddie continues to play big minutes there for the Burn, he may have found a spot for himself in the Olympics. This has the look of a serously dangerous US team. Should be fun to watch.
