He also is slightly above average at only one useful trait, dribbling. Even then he's liable to try six too many stepovers, lose possession and not track back.
He's best as a classic #10 but plays in a world where that position really doesn't exist.
Actually, in terms of on-ball creativity and confidence, I think he would be better than a lot of players currently in our pool.
That pass to Landon that set up Dempsey's game winning goal in the '11 Gold Cup semi final was something that maybe only Bradley or Landon could even think of doing. Unfortunately, his small stature, fear of contact and general laziness renders his few positive skills meaningless.
