USA vs. Spain Roster Set-and it sucks.

Her is the roster for the US vs. Spain via USMNT Blog:

Goalkeepers (3): Dominic Cervi (out of contract), Brad Guzan (Chivas USA), Tim Howard (Everton FC)

Defenders (7): Carlos Bocanegra (out of contract), Dan Califf (FC Midtjylland), Steve Cherundolo (Hannover 96), Jay DeMerit (Watford FC), Frankie Hejduk (Columbus Crew), Oguchi Onyewu (Standard de Liege), Heath Pearce (Hansa Rostock)

Midfielders (6): Freddy Adu (SL Benfica), DaMarcus Beasley (Glasgow Rangers), Michael Bradley (SC Heerenveen), Maurice Edu (Toronto FC), Eddie Lewis (Derby County), Pablo Mastroeni (Colorado Rapids)

Forwards (4): Clint Dempsey (Fulham FC), Nate Jaqua (out of contract), Eddie Johnson (Fulham FC), Josh Wolff (out of contract)

Another piece of shit roster. It was nice to see him drop Rico Clark after having a horrible game against England. Which was surprising I must admit.

However, where are the fucking goals going to come from is Donvan is out? Dempsey looked invisible against England, so much so that I even forgot to mention him in the recap. Also, Josh Wolff has no business being on the field for this.

Also, for the love of all that is holy, Bob, do not play Gooch and Boca in the center of defense.  Spain’s attack has TONS more pace than England’s and Gooch has the speed of an oak tree. Orrozco was called up and should be given a look. He played great from a very good Mexican club and looked great in the Olympics.

On a side note: why the fuck hasn’t Jorge Flores been called up into the youth teams yet? He is on FIRE for Chivas USA and if my sources are correct he is eligible for the US and Mexico. Do you wish to lose ANOTHER player to El Tri because of shit scouting, sticking with your old standby players and lack of action? This kid should be capped NOW. Hell, he should have been brought in against Spain. I’m not saying he is the cure all, but he is a tireless worker on the LM with fantastic pace. Let’s not waste that.

With this roster I’m looking at 3-1 Spain. I have a feeling we’ll sneak in a late garbage time goal. However, with what I am sure will be the bullshit empty bucket formation and lack of quality up top, I am pretty sure we are fucked no matter what the score is unless El Nino ruptures both Achilles tendons in warm ups.
