Isn't the whole good attribute about Cameron is that he can fill in at so many different spots? Is he hurt or suspended? If he can play I don't see any way he doesn't play with JJ in the middle.

Was he a casualty of Friday night?

I like Mix a lot better than Dreds then.

I hope Klinsmann drops Fabian Johnson back to leftback just for the interim. Run DMB is a lousy leftback against good competition. I would rather have plodding Brad Davis or trick-or-treat Jose Torres fill in on the left, than risk getting torched by Dos Santos, Peralta or Guardado on the left.

We say that, but we forget that it was Beasley's performances against Costa Rica and against Mexico at the Azteca that really solidified him at LB in Jurgen's eyes.

Beaz plays in Mexico and knows the national team well, I think he will actually be a strength tomorrow.

Jurgen's eyes deceived him if DMB's performance at the Azteca cemented him as the LB.
I was surprised he made it off that field in one piece.

Our luck plus Mexico's incompetence got us a draw that night. I wouldn't count on either holding up tomorrow night.

Johnson needs to play LB IMO so that we can move Donovan to the left and let either Corona, Zusi, or Bedoya (I would have the most faith in Bedoya to provide both offense and defense) play on the right.

Also, am I making it up or does DMB kill a lot of chances we have to move the ball up the left wing? I realize this is supposed to be a strength of his, but it seems like he usually just stops at midfield and kicks it back. Is that his job as a LB?

FTFY

But seriously there is no way he's going to play. He's just going to be standing on the sidelines with the team.

I'll be doing that either way.

I *should* be the only guy in this jersey:



...that is furiously masturbating in the stands.

Should be, at least.
