Why is Jozy out? His decision or Jurgen's?



Just in case: frick Jurgen.

He tweeted this morning that he was heading somewhere with his AZ teammates tomorrow for some team building. Doesn't sound like he's in.

ETA: AZ could've kept him from going, but I highly doubt that.

This should be all hands on deck for these next 2. If you're healthy and a top player you should be there

Grant Wahl said that AZ has to release him for FIFA dates and this is one of those. The decision was either Jurgy or Jozy and if it's Jurgy, I'm gonna be pissed.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves here. The absence of Jozy may signal to the return of the Wondo.

WTF.

There is absolutely no execuse for leaving Altidore out.

Fire our Jurgen and throw the bank at the Northern Rhineland's Jurgen.

Has anyone heard whether Bradley will play?

Expecting he will but he was subbed at 70 minutes yesterday in his first match back. He commented in the post game interview that he wasn't yet fit for 90 minutes.

If Jurgen leaves Bradley and Jozy out, I will hate him regardless of all future results.

My inner-red will come out.

Biggest question for me is who will play on the wing.

I think we're fine without Jozy if for some reason he couldn't come, but if Landon's injury keeps him out, that's a problem.

i refuse to believe that jurgen actually chose to not put altidore on the roster. there's no fricking way that happened with the way he has been scoring. such an easy selection for these games.

either Jurgen chose not to bring Jozy, or Jozy hates America and the American soccer team.

Zusi and then Gatt, hopefully.

Zusi has been a monster for SKC this entire year and particularly of late. 5 goals and a league leading 15 assists. He's responsible for half of SKC's 40 goals this year.

Not to mention he looked really good in his last appearance with the nats.

Option #3 is an injury. I'm hoping it's that for the sake of the Soccer Board's sanity.
