    I would love for the U.S. to try Mastro as the holding midfielder and Adu as attacking mid (instead of this two holding midfielder duo stuff). Get Dempsey up top as forward with Donovan on the right and DMB the left. Even if they get torched this weekend, that sounds like a serviceable attacking combination.

    You listening, Bob?

    I realized that my verbal description was a little confusing. Here goes the other way:

    ——Jaqua–Dempsey—-
    ———–Adu———-
    DMB————–Donovan
    ——–Mastroeni——-
    Pearce————–Dolo
    ——-Boca–Gooch——
    ———Howard———

    We’re not going to win.

    So go with some thing different

    …………………………Dempsey…………………………
    ………..Beasley………………………..Donovan………..

    …………………………..Adu………………………………
    ………………..Edu………………Bradley………………..

    Lewis………………………………………….Cherundolo
    …………….DeMerit…………Orozco………………….

    ………………………..[ Howard ]………………………

    I like Frank’s lineup alot, but apparently Bradley will NEVER sit Boca, or play a 4-5-1. One change I would make is putting in Pablo for Michael Bradley. I assume this will be an issue w/ Dave on this week’s TASS, but right now Pablo has to get the call over Bradley or Clark based on the younger pairs inability to read one another or read the speed of the game at the non-CONCACAF international level. I’ve actually thought Bradley performed poorly in his last several call ups, and Clark was just plain awful Wednesday. You know what you get from Pablo and he’s not going to perform anywhere near as poor as the aforementioned pair did at Wembley.

    Not a lot of offense in the Midfield pool. We’re gonna get smoked again if LD doesn’t play.

  6. JustinR says:

    Love Franks line up. As we saw against England we need another mid fielder and should be playing a 4-5-1. And Demerit should be playing over Boca.

  7. LH says:

    Based on what I have seen from the US against Mexico and England I think if Canada’s federation had it together we’d be better than you. We certainly have more impact game breaking type players than you do in the attack. Hutchinson, DeGuzman, Derossorio, Friend. For you I only count one, Donovan.
