Charlotte probably has a shot since their stadium is outdoors, but tha little hole in the ceiling in Atlanta won't do them much good.

Not sure why they replaced the grass with turf in Charlotte anyways. Injuries aside, turf is absolutely ass to play on.

So Tepper could fire the groundskeeping crew. Turf is cheaper to maintain after the initial cost of putting it in.

^LOL.

Roster out for the June window. No Brooks. Berhalter clearly just has a vendetta at this point. But I'm glad to see CCV and EPB maybe get some run at CB. I also like the Tillman callup (he just switched his national team allegiance to US from Germany) as well as Djorde and Haji Wright.



Of course Roldan is there for the vibes and hopefully Morris is getting one more chance before Qatar because he is shown absolutely nothing for the US since he came back from injury.

Steffen out for June matches due to family reasons. Not ideal to go into a World Cup with no GK getting regular appearances

Still don't understand the Brooks thing, he has WC experience and plays regularly for his club.

Morroco tomorrow night. Turner getting the start, Long and Zimmerman as CB and Aaronson getting tested out in the MF.

I’m not sure how someone who can make the kind of touch pulisic had on the first goal can turn around and take corners as badly as he does. I have kids on my high school team that take more dangerous corners than Pulisic. Why does he take them for the US?

0-0 Uruguay. Kind of lackluster performance against what most are saying was a B+ team for Uruguay. You could make the argument that with Steffen/Turner/Gio/Richards/Pepi not playing, that we werent exactly full strength either.

Although our backline ultimately didn't let any goals in against Uruguay or Morocco, they definitely looked less than stellar. Zimmerman was fine, Yedlin was terrible, Carter-Vickers and Palmer-Brown were not exciting at all. I think CBs will be Zim and Richards--assuming he comes back from injury.

I'm glad Scally got a call-up and he will provide good depth at LB or RB, but if he is our starter in the WC, we may be screwed. Hopefully the MMA midfield is only gonna be used for matchups where we want to pack the back. Defensively they are fine, but they provide very little offensive creativity. I'd like to see LDLT or Aaronson get more time in the MF--and hopefully Gio will fill those slots when he gets back.

If that Ref is the best CONCACAF has then its no wonder the rest of the world laughs at our region. Was Tits boot high, yes, but studs didn't make contact and it was more of a trip on a 50-50 ball. Yellow at worst and half the fouls on Pulisic and Aaronson in 1st half were worse than that.

Field was garbage. Goalkeeper is going to be a huge issue in the World Cup. Horvath's positioning was horrid.

Musah is going to be a great player, if he gets better at finishing we could have a really dangerous MF. DLT came in and made an impact as well. Pulisic continues to be inconsistent on corners and FK.

CONCACAF gonna CONCACAF. Every game in central america is due to have some absolutely batshit stuff happen it seems like.

^^ That Horvath positioning was just . Maybe he expected Cannon to not give up the edge? Either way, he probably just played himself off the team. Was a bummer too because I was hoping he would make a push for the starting job.

Haji Wright had an admittedly rough first half, but it's so baffling to me that GGG seems to give some guys super long leashes, while others he will bring back again and again. Jordan Morris has been a complete non-factor for most of the qualifying campaign and against Grenada, he was terrible. Not to mention, he plays in one of our deepest positions on the team and yet he gets run again and again. good for him with the goal last night, but if we are in a position where he has to take the field in the WC, we are screwed. I'd much rather see a variety of striker/winger options on the team that have actual quality--Sergent, Hoppe, Konrad. All of them have looked better than Morris in limited time.

Haji gets a half, does a couple of decent things and was invisible. Jesus missed about 8 chances (some of them were sitters) in the first half against Grenada, but he got the whole game and obviously started finishing in the second half against basically a high-school club team. Arriola averages about 9 just dumb turnovers a game and doesn't score. I'm just tired of seeing the same MLS chads out there being unimpressive and yet we can't cycle in any new faces for real chances.
