Only players who showed up were Howard, Pulisic, and Dempsey.
Bradley was anemic and the backline is awful.
Pulisic needs to be in the middle and not on the wing.
Without Howard the game would have been a loss.
Not having Brooks and Cameron on the back line hurt.
Question: If you could only have one of the following players on the field who would it be and why? Michael Bradley or Jermaine Jones
That reminds me of when I first learned about moving up in rank at a karate dojo. You were given an option of either taking punch or a kick to the midsection.
If I really had to choose one or the other, I'd pick Bradley for the US. Works out on all levels for me. I think that he is better for the US than Jones at this point in their careers, and it has the added bonus of allowing Jones to put more into his time with the LA Galaxy. I also think that Bradley would fit in better with how Arena was running the midfield with the Galaxy. I don't know if Arena is going to continue that with the USMNT, though.
Bradley. He looked a lot better against Honduras without Jones in the midfield. I swear they both look lost when playing together. Jones doesn't seem to have the legs anymore, and there's a lot of covering spreads they have to do for one another. Plus with Jones I always feel like he's two seconds away from a red card inducing tackle..
Zusi in the backline.....geeeesh (editor's note: he was not the only sore spot)
