Apart from two teams how good is this league really ? Would rather we had more players playing in Portugal, Switzerland , Belgium , English Championship, German second division, Italy Serie B than Scotland’s top division and yes even more in the MLS over Scotland. Moreover , there have been a few former Scottish premier league players try there luck in the MLS and could not cut it. 

It's League 1 - that's where a lot of players come from (even Rangers) and go to after the SPL.

Just realized we now have more players from Scotland than from American MLS teams.

Just realized we have more players playing in Mexico than the US does. According  to wikipedia they don't haven't called anyone up in the last 12 months.

TFC down 1-0 in the 63rd.  Sucks for them, but conditions would be good to get Altidore in the field since they are now chasing a goal.  Would love to see him get subbed in, and have it go to extra time.  

 

Laryea is on on the bench, so just Oso getting the workout on the Canadian side. Bradley and Altidore (he is getting ready to come on as I type this) for the US squad.

Very excited for this one. I'll be watching in Enemy territory!

Even with Davies dominant performance at LB for Bayern and his great game at Striker last Canada match I'm thinking we should try him as head medical staff. Think of how fast he could run onto the pitch to provide players treatment!

You hate to see a young man down with a knee injury but we'll take what we can get. Guzan is no slouch but Steffen was the difference between a 4 or 5-0 game and a 2-0 game.

How so? At most Steffen stopped David's once great chance (although I would say that was more on David then Steffen). So 3-0 maybe, not sure where the other goal or two would have come from though

Agree. I don't remember a save Steffen made that a keeper of Guzan quality wouldn't make.

He made that stop on Hoilett didn't he?

Any ideas if Pulisic decided to stay at Chelsea to “focus “ on his career?   Would be good no?

...Have to wonder if that’s why the US roster announcement is so delayed ?

I can't imagine that contorting his body for 90 minutes to fit in Richie Laryea's pocket would be the smartest thing for a hip injury.

After originally being named to the roster last week, the availability of attacker Christian Pulisic remains uncertain after he suffered a hip injury during Chelsea’s match against Crystal Palace on Saturday. He continues to be evaluated and a decision on whether he will join the U.S. camp in Orlando is expected soon.

Midfielder Michael Bradley was also to be part of the squad, but was forced to withdraw after sustaining a right ankle injury during Sunday’s MLS Cup Final in Seattle.

Striker Jordan Morris and midfielder Cristian Roldan of Seattle Sounders FC were added to the roster following Sunday’s 3-1 win against Toronto FC in the 2019 MLS Cup, while forward Corey Baird and defender Chase Gasper departed camp over the weekend.
