Where is Boxi Yomba
Anyone know when the U23 roster against Mexico is going to be announced?
A bit surprised Bradford Jamieson was not included. Did I miss an injury or something?
There’s a number of players missing: Acosta, Novakovich, Yomba, Payne, Hyndman, Rubin. All of who could be on the team come the end of next month.
Ramos is one of surprises and head scratchers so who knows who he will take in the end. Either way it should be a good and deep team. The only limitation is the guy running the ship.
So true..from top to bottom
I’ve not seen much of the Crew this season, can anyone advise how Gall has been doing?
Was impressed with some of his play during qualification, but haven’t heard much since.
I don’t think he has even cracked the 18 yet this season
He picked up an injury in pre-season. Form what I understand Berhalter expects him to break into the first team and get regular playing time this season after the U-20 WC.
Berhalter was pretty happy with what he saw from Gall, but like JAiSa said, he picked up a knock at the end of preseason and is just now getting back into form. Expect to see more of him as the season progresses.
Where is Emerson Hyndman? Still injured?
yes he will be out till May I think.
Understand you all are having issues, But when’s the next podcast?
You know, if your partner can fix his schedule around yours? It may be time to get a new host? Better to have a podcast than nothing.
I was hoping for a new podcast by now as well, but I don’t think you can automatically put this on the G-Man. Ives strongly hinted on the last podcast that he wanted to take a break.
Ives, when are the rosters due for U-20 World Cup?
What’s the deal with Moore? He’s been listed as unattached for a long time.
Seriously, seems like a waste of talent. He’s been a standout when with U-17’s, more so than Palmer-brown who’s been all the rage. What the deuce?
Palmer-Brown wasn’t on the U-17 team.
That’s kind of a waste. It’s like why aren’t you either getting college paid for or being paid to play if this is what you want to do with your life. There’s also the potential Adu problem of just sitting around.
