Tim Howard, Michael Bradley, Freddy Adu and Jozy Altidore are among the 22 players Bob Bradley has called in for Wednesday night’s friendly against Mexico in Houston.

Here is the roster:

GOALKEEPERS : Brad Guzan (Chivas USA), Tim Howard (Everton FC)

DEFENDERS : Carlos Bocanegra (Fulham FC), Ramiro Corrales (SK Brann), Drew Moor (FC Dallas), Oguchi Onyewu (Standard de Liege), Michael Parkhurst (New England Revolution), Heath Pearce (Hansa Rostock), Eddie Robinson (Houston Dynamo)

MIDFIELDERS : Freddy Adu (SL Benfica), Michael Bradley (SC Heerenveen), Ricardo Clark (Houston Dynamo), Bobby Convey (Reading FC), Brad Davis (Houston Dynamo), Maurice Edu (Toronto FC), Benny Feilhaber (Derby County), Stuart Holden (Houston Dynamo), Eddie Lewis (Derby County)

FORWARDS : Jozy Altidore (New York Red Bulls), Clint Dempsey (Fulham FC), Landon Donovan (Los Angeles Galaxy), Pat Noonan (Aalesund FK)


  1. ………….Dempsey…………



    …..Bradley ……Edu/Clark…..



    It would also not surprise me to see BB go with LD on the left, and start a Noonan at RM.

    Unlike other Mafia members, I’m concerned about the D in this game. Without Dolo & Bornstein (injured) our backs will be very exposed against a very good Mexico attack. Therefore Bob, please no Moor…let Boca can handle the LB and cover for Convey’s weakness on D. While LD and Pearce would be interesting to see work together up the right.

    Ives had previously posted a lineup starting all of Bradley, Edu & Clark that would also not surprise me, something like:

    Convey………Bradley ………..LD




    My preference would be to see Adu in the AM/SS role, but without your top backs in the game you had better come with some bit from the CM positions.

  2. Bornstein is injured. DMB too for those wondering.

    Subotic didn’t make the U-20 roster, mainly because Rongen has an incredible ability to not identify talent (I’m bitter). Outstanding player, especially considering his age.

    The more I think about this roster the more I get annoyed that Spector isn’t on it.

  3. im hoping jozy gets the start since dempsey has a game for fulham on sunday and will probably go the whole 90.i prefer donovan as an attacking mid or 2nd striker behind jozy or clint up top,i think hes most dangerous and creative there.anyway u twist it,2-1 USA…….

  4. oops! sorry about the repeat. Must be the third bourbon!!!! Lets spank our Southern Brothers from across the border. 3-1 with our reserve team playing about 65 minutes would be real cool.

  5. I am also a Big Fulham Fan and a Giant Demspey Fan. He is the biggest threat at Fulham right now when playing out of position and that shows what Kind of player he really is. When Johnson/ McBride and Nevalnd get up to speed and Hodgson plays Demps at Attacking Mid Field he will contribute big time towards keeping them in the PL. Dempsey just does not have the speed to play Striker up top by himself against real strong CB’s and Fullbacks unless of course the Mid fieldrs he is playing with are extremely fast and can run onto his knock downs. Cherundolo is hurt and so is Simek but Spector is not and he should have brought him in.


    Moor Gooch Parkhurst Boca

    Donovan Adu Bradley Convey



    Or put Boca in for Parkhurst and Pearce for Boca at LB. Possibly have Donovan up top with Dempsey and Feilhaber at RM.

  6. Gold Cup Final all over again…This is fantastic because I bet lunch over this match with a co-worker. Bitches don’t know ’bout my depth.
