Stop Hating on Conor Casey!

Get the foot out of my way!

Get the #@$foot out of my way!

Are you kidding me?

The USMNT roster for the game on the 12th gets announced and message boards and blogs are lit up everywhere with “Conor Casey this…,” “Conor Casey that…,” “Conor Casey can’t score against my grandpa…” etc. etc. etc.

TSG is here to scream, “Stop the madness!”

Really…

You don’t want a 6’1” forward who can match up with big boys as a back-up.

You don’t want a guy that was the best MLS Allstar on field against Everton, that’s Everton FC from the EPL,  to suit up.

You don’t want a guy whose goals to appearances for his entire career is 20% better then Eddie Johnson’s.

C’mon…he’s not a first teamer and probably won’t even make the game day cut, but if he does he’ll mix it up, bang around, and play hard the whole time in.

So pipe down.

    Casey is obviously good if he can lead the MLS in scoring, but so far I haven’t seen that kind of success transfer to the international stage. He needs to prove himself before he is deemed worthy of his spot on the roster. Off the top of my head, I can’t think of anyone I’d rather have on the bench than Casey, so I guess that says something about him.
