O'Brien played well. In fact, I think he might have been our best player in the first half. (Which, of course, falls into the category of "damning with faint praise.") He was taken off at halftime but that was the gameplan all along. I think O'Brien and Convey were the only players who helped their case last night.

Pope and Gooch were great in the center of defense so I wouldn't mess that up. Gibbs was great on the left too but with Lewis there we can definitely attack better on that wing. Other than that stupid mistake at the end Cherundolo did a fine job at RB, would you rather see Albright . The midfield HAS to look like that and the Bruce needs to realize it NOW. Wolff needs to be kicked off the team and Johnson NEEDS to start. I've never seen him have a good game coming off the bench.
I think you're completely right, except I really like Deuce (can Convey play DM? He plays everywhere else) and I would prefer O'Brien over Mastroeni. Mastroeni is solid for sure, but he's just one of those guys that will never be a "next level" player. O'Brien, when on, is probably one of the four or five most talented players on the team. It's too bad he isn't still starting at Ajax.

I agree O'Brien is a very solid player but you could just tell last night that he was rusty out there. Sure he completed a couple of good passes but he also wasted 5 or 6 and lost the ball every time he had a defender close to him. He's just not ready physically.

Wolff does suck and does have a bitch face I just want to punch him everytime I see his mug........I COULDN'T AGREE MORE! Bruce, please start EJ please instead of Wolff! While I agree that the defence was horrible, it sucked with Gooch in there as well, he was slow and committed some hard fouls near the penalty area. Gibbs should stay in the center along with Pope and Gooch coming off the bench.

WHAT !!?? Did you watch the same game as me? The defense was very solid, they cleared everything that was crossed in the box and I'm pretty sure Morocco only had like one shot on goal with Gooch in there and it was from outside the box. He has to start. Not only is he a rock solid defender but he's very dangerous in the box too when we have corner kicks.

Well looks like you'll get your wish. Corey Gibbs has been dropped because of a knee injury sustained against Morocco, replaced by Greg Berhalter (Tar Heel).

s*it that wasn't my wish!!

Corey Gibbs is a very good player, this is seriously some BS, all these injuries right before the WC. My initial line-up was to have Gooch and Gibbs in center of the defense but Pope showed that he can still do it.

Terrible news about Gibbs. I feel bad for him, but at least he'll have one more shot at a World Cup. Having three solid CB's was a good luxury to have and now we've lost that. Pope really needs to step up now. We don't have a solid replacement for him anymore.

Berhalter isn't bad, but I'll be more comfortable if he doesn't have to play in the tournament.

Did anyone see on Sportscenter this morning their "all access" thing with USA? They showed when they told Bruce about Gibbs' injury... then they showed when he goes to talK to Gibbs about it. I felt bad for him, Gibbs couldnt even speak, he just had hs head buried in his arms.
