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.
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?
