    Also Tim Howard isn't the starter but I don't think that's much of a surprise.

    Would have burned the place down if my guy didn't make the team

    Fucking Wondo. Would much rather have Morris out there. Would have been great experience for a young player like him. We all know what Wondo is at this point.

    Aston Villa was a disgrace this year, so it's hard to judge Guzan based off of that. Everton wasn't much better. Not too concerned about the goalie situation....both of those guys are good options. And yeah, thank christ Pulisic made the roster...would have made zero sense for him to not be there.

    Oh yeah, no doubt. Wondo is awful. I just don't think Jordan Morris is what a lot of people think he is. He doesn't have anything that is above average at a high level, not that wondo does. But yeah, would be nice to play young, especially with an old roster as it is

    Yeah I would personally like to see Howard play in person but I don't think either is a wrong decision

    http://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2016/05/22/jurgen-klinsmann-explains-why-jordan-morris-was-excluded-us-squad

    I haven't been watching the earthquakes or the sounders I'm afraid so I can't really speak to their recent play. Morris ain't going nowhere tho, he's like ten years old.

    Klinsmann also didn't put Mix (Diskerud) on the roster, which is good news for them. (Not such great news for me)

    Not a terribly inspiring game last night. The 2nd half was much better than the first and was a nice goal. Nagbe looked pretty good.

    Pulisic looked awesome. Held his own for sure. Ian Darke was giddy at one point.

    That's a beautiful thing. Didn't see any of last night's game, but doesn't sound like it was the most inspired effort based on what I've read today. 1 more friendly to get their shit together before it starts up next week. Going to be a fun month with Euro 2016 games during the day and Copa America at night.

    Indeed. An all around great goal. Filthy move by Yedlin to beat his guy, broke his angles and made a nice cross, great 2nd header from Wood then really liked Nagbe not letting it hit the ground and playing off the volley.

    Hype is about to get crazy on this kid. Yeah, looking forward to these tournaments. Can't wait for the US game here.

    Should be on TV. It's on TSN in Canada, I'd expect it to be on ESPN in the States.
    Is there a european soccer thread?

    Yeah, I know the FIFA rankings don't mean much, especially right now, but they are 3rd in the world, which is pretty wild. Can probably get decent odds on them with everyone assuming Argentina/Brazil.
