US Troops to Honduras: Coops & Conrad, Hiya

Welcome back William Dafoe, I mean, JC!

Welcome back William Dafoe, I mean, JC!

The roster you “won’t” be seeing on free TV on 10/10

• G: Tim Howard, Brad Guzan

• D: Carlos Bocanegra, Jonathan Bornstein, Steve Cherundolo, Jimmy Conrad, Clarence Goodson, Oguchi Onyewu, Jonathan Spector

• M: Michael Bradley, Ricardo Clark, Clint Dempsey, Benny Feilhaber, Stu Holden, Robbie Rogers, Jose Francisco Torres

• F: Jozy Altidore, Conor Casey, Brian Ching, Charlie Davies, Landon Donovan

Quick reaction:

• It pays to play….and deliver. Kenny Coops back in the fold.

• The usual characters in midfield. Robbie Rogers makes it again. If the US can take care of business in Honduras, then we might see Bradley investigate the back-up left flank in D.C. with either Rogers or Torres.

• For all the hype, no Edgar Castillo call-up–not that it was expected.

• TSG Wing of the Hall-of-Fame namesake, Jimmy Conrad makes the squad. See first bulletpoint. Get that knee better Chad Marshall.

    I like it, decent group. Here’s to a win in Honduras and a somewhat expierimental lineup at RFK.

    Game one:
    Spector, Gooch, Boca, Bornstien
    Dempsey, Bradley, Feilhaber, Donovan
    Altidore, Davies

    Game two: (pending a win in game one)
    Spector, Gooch, Goodson, Cherundolo
    Holden, Feilhaber, Torres, Donovan
    Altidore, Cooper


    • I like your potential lineups, and agree that we need to see the Feilhaber and Bradley combination in the midfield again, they just need to figure who’s pushing up when. As for starting Davies and Altidore, it’s hard not to but Jozy hasn’t been playing well recently for Hull, so I wouldn’t be surprised with Bradley pushing Dempsey up top and starting Holden or Torres.

      I think the lineup for the CR match is beyond the realm of possibilities (don’t get me wrong I love the midfield quartet), given Bobbo’s penchant for starting his guys. I could see Cooper getting into the lineup and Goodson, but a midfield with not one destroyer or irrational tackler…that’s absurd.
