I am not critisizing Bruce's lineup for El Salvador/Panama, but I am curious if anyone has insight into why Mulrooney fallen so far out of the National Team picture. I am not saying Mulrooney should be a lock at d-mid, but he is certainly comparable to Masto, Zavag and Armas. Mulrooney even has a couple points that seperate from these three. 1. He leads all of them in assists every year and overall is a better distributor of the ball. 2. He is a decent set piece taker with a very powerful shot. I am slightly mystified why he has not received much of a look from Arena lately, especially since Arena has sometimes used the box midfield where two d-mids are used. To my recollection, when Mulrooney has been called up, he has not played poorly for the USMNT. IMO his distribution skills from the d-mid position would be very helpful.
