I don't think klinnsman had those players fly across the atlantic to cut them 5 days later. I think all the Germans are staying and getting capped.

US Squad for the Antigua & Barbados, Guatamala WCQs.

GOALKEEPERS (3): Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), Tim Howard (Everton), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)

DEFENDERS (Cool: Carlos Bocanegra (Racing Santander), Geoff Cameron (Stoke City), Edgar Castillo (Club Tijuana), Steve Cherundolo (Hannover), Maurice Edu (Stoke City), Clarence Goodson (Brondby), Fabian Johnson (Hoffenheim), Michael Parkhurst (Nordsjaelland)

MIDFIELDERS (Cool: Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Michael Bradley (Roma), Joe Corona (Club Tijuana), Jermaine Jones (Schalke 04), Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht), Brek Shea (FC Dallas), Danny Williams (Hoffenheim), Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City)

FORWARDS (5):Clint Dempsey (Tottenham Hotspur), Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy), Herculez Gomez (Santos), Alan Gordon (San Jose Earthquakes), Eddie Johnson (Seattle Sounders)

---------------------------

Big news that's been been all over is that Jozy Altidore didn't make the cut. Klinnsmann apparently didn't like his last 2 performances for USA, especially against Jamaica and so has decided to punish Jozy for that. If this was tactical, I'd be ok with it, but he's holding a bit of a grudge here and that's not all that fair to Jozy, who has been in good form for AZ.

That said, AZ's system and our system are incredibly different in that AZ's system plays to Jozy's strengths and qualities, allowing him to hold up play and bring his teammates into the action. There's less of that for the USA as he's forced to take defenders on face-to-face, which isn't his game. That's certainly a better reason for dropping him then simple " I don't like how you played the last game."

Also....kinda wanted to see Wondo given another chance, but Alan Gordon has been pretty good for SJ.

Let Bradley murder them with long balls just outside the box and let Dempsey clean up the one's that don't go in. Victory.

In all seriousness though....I'm not worried about midfield, but I'm not exactly excited about our depth at forward. I would of liked to see them call up Wondo again to compliment Gomez and Dempsey, or even Boyd. However, I personally wouldn't of called up Altidore either, he seems to be suffering from a case of the Adu's.

What a poor win against Antigua.....that pitch was shat, but we were much worse, getting outplayed for stretches at a time.

For Guatamala, Fabian Johnson is out sick so it'll probably be Castillo at LB. Eddie Johnson has to start this match.

Better than the boring Germany-Netherlands game

Agudelo not doing shit for Chivas USA yet plays great for the US
on the other hand you have Altidore not doing shit for the US and playing great for AZ
the mystery of club form not equaling national form grows larger

You would be the only one, not qualifying is impossible given how easy the qualification format is. If you finish fourth you face Oceania, and if you can't beat New Zealand you don't deserve to be in the World Cup. However, I kind of agree on your general sentiment that I don't think it will be pretty especially if Klinsmann has really lost the locker room so early in his stewardship of the team.

I still think he was the right choice for Sunil Galati's job, not the head coaching job of the USMNT.

Ok, true, but what if they don't finish fourth? I know it seems unlikely, but all the other teams in the group are very strong.

You really think we can't finish above Costa Rica, Honduras, and Jamaica? We will win all our home games except Mexico. Just need to not bleed points and lose leads away from home.

No, considering how 2/3 of those are some of the stronger teams in the group. I believe the US can finish above Jamaica and Panama, but am not entirely sure about the rest (or even those two). And a win in the next home game is not a guarantee- besides Joel Campbell, they also have Brian Ruiz and Alvaro Saborio, three attackers who will be able to capitalize on a weakened US defense.

Snowing at game's location...could that affect the Costa Ricans? (Although many of them play in Scandinavia, MLS, etc. so are used to it).
