    Kartik, in response to your last part on the left back problem… I think if you want to look for a young player in MLS who might eventually be a solution, you need to watch Rodney Wallace. He’s not a US citizen yet, and he’s not at all ready for international play yet, but the potential is there. Wallace can play left wing or left back, he has a motor that doesn’t stop, some insightful ideas on the field, and isn’t butt-ugly slow like most serious candidates for that position.

    AFAIK, he won’t get citizenship until after the World Cup, and he could yet choose to play for Costa Rica instead… which would be a damned shame, since the position is so wide open.

  2. Doesn’t Wallace want to play for Costa Rica?

    Kartik, your best podcast ever. Great job lining up a great panel. Masterful job of playing the host and keeping the conversation moving and pointed. The people from Bristol should be calling you shortly!

    Per Ives Galarcep, 5/24, Rodney was quoted as follows: “Right now I haven’t made a decision and I’m not leaning either way,” said Wallace. “I was born in Costa Rica and there are feelings there where I would love to play for the national team, but I’ve been here [in the United States] and being here is a big reason I’ve become the player I am now.”

    Just FYI. Supposedly Bob Bradley has already been in touch with Wallace, just to make sure he knows we’re interested.

  5. C Webb says:

    Talking to Rodney after United games, I get the impression that he wants to play with the USA. Nothing really concrete here, just a gut feeling.

    Great podcast, Kartik. Nicely done.
