I really hope we don't. Jurgen needs to move Dempsey out left or find wide options. That is what it boils down to.

Dempsey will drift in. He plays much better in the middle. I would rather have him do that and throw someone else out wide that will provide that width

It will be just like starting Torres in the same position. He is a central midfielder but can play some out wide. How effectively remains to be seen.


Like Torres (and Zusi), Sacha lacks the top end speed to be effective way out wide.

He has played all midfield positions (L,C,R) at different points in his US career, so he'd be comfortable.... but I don't think he'd necessarily be successful.

I have a really bad feeling we will see either Jones or Williams out wide.


I doubt we see Jones out there. Williams is a definite possibility on the right but hopefully Zusi played well enough last time to lock that spot up while Donovan's out.

What's the likelihood Corona starts/sees the field out wide?
I don't know much about him but it seems like he's often called into camp but doesn't get to play. Considering how thin we are at outside mid at the moment it might not be a bad idea to give him a shot.

I think we'll probably see Fabi Johnson or Edgar Castillo playing LM with the other one playing LB.

Speaking of Ives... he tweeted this.

USMNT injured: Donovan, Shea, Jones, Fabian Johnson, Edgar Castillo. DaMarcus Beasley is also hurt. If you have a good left foot, beware.

It's true. My daughter has a good left foot and, sure enough, she sprained it just last week ...

This is crisis mode stuff. If Jurgen doesn't call in Lichaj et al as replacements, he just better hope he wins anyway. He'll never get another job in soccer if he doesn't get us out of this round b/c he took risks with the roster.

I have a good left foot. My foot is slightly swollen and my right calf has a deep bruise, but both injuries should be healed by Friday. I can get on a plane for Miami/Antigua and Barbuda tonight.

Wow, no Johnson and possibly no Jones. What the frick are we going to do? Lichaj needs to come in immediately.

Looks like we will have a midfield of Danny Williams, Michael Bradley, Graham Zusi, and Kljestan/Corona?

Hold on, Castillo's hurt too? What in the frick. Not that he's good, but still, this is getting ridiculous.
