My focus on Trapp reflects that I do not believe in a truly open process he would emerge. I think his performance is underwhelming and he is involving in goals being allowed. As I obsessed about, he is actually prime age, not a kid. Those players are judged for now and not on theoretical upside. In an accountable process that would be the end, and as you suggest, on to the next candidate. I leave MB out because I think he, while old and falling apart, has some upper level skills and soccer IQ where he might emerge at the tail end of a 23 man list. Though I think that should be earned and not given. And I on one of these threads made a similar argument that I don't understand moving players like Adams if "this" is what fills that void. Why does Pulisic move if Arriola goes in that spot.
