That midfield can hang with the best midfields in the world if Zusi continues his rise. Or if Holden can ever get healthy.
Further, we have LOADS of other midfield options. IE, we can play Danny Williams as Dmid, let Bradley run the O with Dempsey moving up top. Or we can bring in Jermaine Jones and/or Edu if we need to lock down a lead.
Ironically, our wing defenders now are stronger than our mids. But I think Cameron plus one becomes a rock solid tandem. I think O Gonzalez is the key. Goodson is fine, but not great.
And if we could ever get Timmy Chandler to give up his pipe dream of playing for Germany...........
Im hoping this is a wakeup call for Altidore. JK will absolutely sit your ass down if you arent giving 100 percent.
RE: Bob Bradley. His stubborness leading up to and into the 2010 WC cost us a chance at advancing farther. But that stubborness also made his kid that much better for this cycle. (shrugs).
