The D will RushYa, Like Moscow
I know I'm late and I know Klinsman is off to not the most "results worthy" start . . . but this was the best decision by far. Klinsman coaches soccer like football. Spread the field and attack the perimeter and put a defense on their heels. However with that philosophy, the US needs fast/strong forwards and big/strong defensemen. He really need Guch Onyewu to come out of his funk and lead this backline. He can be an enforcer but ever since the injury he has played soft and not very skilled.
My ideal Starting 11:
F - Altidore/Davies - Altidore is the big/strong guy and Davies is the speed guy . . . perfect combo
M - Donovan/Adu/Bradley/Dempsey - Donovan is their best player, Dempsey is their best finisher and 2 of the most talented playmakers in Adu/Bradley . . . make it happen Jurgen. Ball control with these 4.
D - Chandler/Gooch/Bocanegra/Cherundolo - Chandler is young, but he has the potential to be an incredible left back. Adds an offensive element to the backfield. Gooch is the big man and Boca is the captain. Cherundolo is more than efficient as the right back.
G - Tim Howard - He is a real solid keeper, too bad his defense has sucked but you get him a good defense, Howard is more than solid.
I dunno, I like this group as my starting 11. I think its the United States 11 best players. Then bring back guys like Holden and Benny Felharber, along with Brek Shea in the mid field. Keep with Aguedelo and even Robbie Rogers as more speed to wear out tired defenses in the 2nd half. There is alot of young talent for the defense, but yea they are young. Hopefully those guys get it together by the 2014 WC. I still think Jurgen will get it fixed. The US is gonna go places with Klinsman. Remember the United States has one of the better youth soccer programs in the world. They have just needed a coach to put it all together. I think they found their man in Klinsman.
