Or Kaye, if healthy?

True, forgot about that. Generally I havent really liked him there based on what I've seen though.

The thing is the US will come out with a high line and press our back line unlike last match. We need composure and the ability to play out of the back. Just not sure if Miller is the one we want back there under these circumstances. We'll see what Herdman goes with though.

Yeah, we beat the USA once, and Some people think that this will be an easy match. Obviously, some of y’all are joking but others are just being a bit cocky and are going to be disappointed if we think this match we’ll be a duplicate of the last one. The USA are going to put everything out there to win as it’s massive for Berhalter and the confidence of the fans behind them.

We cannot underestimate them but it's just as important not to give them too much respect. 

Let's stick to the facts: We have the more dangerous players going forward.  They are in bad form and we are in good form.  Our players know they can beat them.  Their media is roasting their Federation over the lame vote of confidence for Berhalter just days out of the game.  They have important players missing, we do not.  Florida is literally our home away from home, really, of all the places they could have chosen...

We are by no means the favourites but they are very beatable right now.

Henry eh ? God help us, I hope I’m wrong and he has an astounding game but I have no confidence in this guy too too many screw ups over the years with this guy scares the hell out of me whenever I see him back there.

Certainly, makes me nervous af as well

The way I see it, if we start Miller we can still convert to 3 at the back without using a sub. Millar has played on the left of a back three often this year, and Davies just shifts to wingback. I start Davies up front similar to last game, and if it doesn’t work, just shift to a back three.

This is one of those situations where, historically, we've really sh*t the bed.  Another good chance for Herdman to show his chops in the psychological prep for this game.

I think some here have way more faith in Miller than I do. All credit to him for working hard and learning a new position but he was clear weak link last match and I thought we were kind of lucky to get away with him. We don’t have many options though - it’s either Davies, Adekugbe or Miller.

...or Cornelius.

The more I think about it, the more I see Herdman going with a back four of Cornelius, Vitoria, Henry and Laryea.

The statements coming out of the USA camp are very similar to what our guys were saying in October.  To go along with the comments by their Dutch fullback, the German midfielder on the states says they need to be ready to "kill".

Based on the limited sample size where Cornelius played LB for a few games with VWFC, I would rather we play Miller then.

Not to mention the game will be played on Miller's home field!

It's a point worth considering for sure.  A solid performance by Miller down there would likely solidify himself for Canada AND Orlando.  Is that too much pressure or a perfect scenario?  I guess it depends on the player...

Sorry to keep harping on this but tons of Crepeau in the Canada Soccer build up but no Borjan.  Has anyone heard anything about him?

What do we think the USA is going to do?  It almost makes it tougher without Bradley and Pulisic since they would be so predictable with them.  They've spent so many windows and results on this system they're trying to use .. hard to see them departing from that but they may want to make a few adjustments.

Whenever I find myself getting too comfortable about this game coming up, I remember back to what I felt like when the ball was at Pulisic's feet for an open shot at goal with the score 0-0. If he finished that it would have really changed the game I think, and everything that has come since.

Hopefully we score first in this one again.

This moment still gives me anxiety. I’m willing to bet if Pulisic buries that, it would’ve been a completely different game

Like I said before, I sincerely hope they continue to underestimate us and think they will dominate us. 

It's not just the dominating us quote, but when he says they're the giants of concacaf 😭
