We don't play Mexico often, but when we do, we prefer dos a cero.
Stay thirsty my friends.

Cameron isn't on the roster for this due to injury

I love the roster. I just hope JK puts the right ones on the field.

USMNT has more talent than it's ever had in the past and yet JK still can't put the right 11 players on the field. I think JK should put one of the following line ups on the field.
Formation: 4-3-1-2
Yedlin-----------Carter-Vickers(or Besler or Cameron)----------Brooks-------------Johnson
----------Pulisic-------------------Cameron(or Jones)-------------------Green-------------
--------------------------------Kljestan(or Nagbe)--------------------------------
------------------------Wood-----------------------Morris---------------------------
OR Formation:4-3-3
Yedlin-----------Carter-Vickers(or Besler or Cameron)-----------Brooks------------Orozco
Gooch--------------------------------Cameron(or Jones)----------------------------Johnson
Pulisic----------------------------------------Wood--------------------------Green
OR Formation: 4-4-2
Yedlin------------Carter-Vickers(Besler or Cameron)-------------Brooks------------Johnson
Pulisic------------Cameron(or Nagbe)----------------------------Jones--------------Green
-----------------------Wood----------------------------Morris----------------------------------

It was time for Klinsmann to leave. He just wasn't getting it done. I think he did a good job of identifying talent and with giving young players a chance to contribute, but that's where it ends. In my opinion, Altidore, Bradley, Chandler, and Gonzales should never play another game for the USMNT. The USMNT has too much young talent to keep them on the bench. They are deeper than they have ever been. Now it's just a matter of finding the right coach who can put the correct 11 players on the field and who know when it's time to cut bait and move on from players who aren't performing well.

Klinsmann was always destined to fail in my opinion. The US just doesn't have enough skillful players for a coach like Klinsmann. We rely heavily on our athleticism which will only get you so far in soccer.

Really hope Arena is not hired again, can't see us making any forward progress if he comes back.

And right after I posted this I just saw Arena got hired.

Massive coaching talent shortage... ugh. Add that to our on-field talent shortage.

The prevailing thought of the analysts on TV seems to be that Arena may be simply the short term solution until after the World Cup, when the U.S. will have a chance to find a coach for the long term. I hope that is the case. I don't want to see Arena as the coach for the long term, since he's made some comments, about only wanting American born players on the team (which would exclude have the squad who have an American parent or who were raised in the U.S. but born somewhere else), that I don't agree with.
I'm ok with him being the coach until the World Cup is over though.

Huge game Tues night at Panama. A win will put them up to 3rd place. If Costs Rica also loses then they'll be tied for 2nd!

Agreed, but Panama has been tough this Hex. I think they beat us like 4-0 in the fall.

The US has to be better than getting draws against teams like Panama....injuries or not.

They will likely end up qualifying for the WC....but not last long once there.
