I love Alex's promotion of this thread. I haven't heard anything about what he'll do in the friendlies. Personally, I would just experiment with a few tweaks in each game, since a large portion of the roster is already set. There's no point to give Brian Ching a game in my opinion, instead we should give PT to guys who actually might play, so they get used to working with the starters.

Gibbs appears to be our first-choice back-up at left back, so let him see some more time there. Give Johnson a chance to show why he should start. If he doesn't play well, then Arena can try his rumored 4-5-1 in the next two games.
Of course I'm operating under the notion that Pope will be our starting CB alongside Gooch in the World Cup, as Arena has stated. It appears the job is his to lose - and he could lose it. I personally think we're better off with Gibbs there, as do most fans.
If you think about it, we have seven very good midfielders: Reyna, O'Brien, Mastroeni, Beasley, Convey, Dempsey and Donovan. (Not to mention that Lewis is also a midfielder.) The challenge will be finding the best formation and the best combination of the aforementioned players. Whatever choices Bruce makes, one thing is for certain: we'll have some very good options coming off the bench.
