Thoughts? Anyone you are disappointed not to see? Kenny Cooper stands out for me, and I’ll have more on that later tonight. It appears Sacha Kljestan, no doubt deserving but a former player of Bradley’s with Chivas USA is the only addition to the squad from the European trip, which personally to me is unacceptable. We’ve seemingly settled on 20 or so players to enter qualifying with which as I will detail tonight is a big mistake.
