  1. Great run on the goal for Fabian Johnson! But I just. cannot. believe. that Gladbach would play him so completely out of his natural position and put him at right back… Wait… Klinnsman isn’t their manager? Oh, never mind. They must know what they’re doing.

      • He’s an excellent fullback on either the right or the left. He’s also an excellent left mid/winger. I was poking fun at all of the people who constantly gripe about JK playing him “out of position”. He has several positions that he has played over the years. He’s done well at all of them. I’m pretty sure he could play anywhere on the field except as a goalkeeper or as a target forward.

      • It’s not that he’s a bad fullback its that USMNT can’t create chances and when JK puts zusi or someone on the wing instead of Fabian its stupid.

      • Bryan,

        good call, those are my thoughts on the Fabian situation as well, but leave it up to a JK apologist to jump on a opportunity to defend him

      • I love that people can’t disagree about one thing without being put into 1 of 2 camps. You either hate JK or are an “apologist”. It could be that some people, like myself, think JK has good and bad points. He makes good and bad decisions. To suggest otherwise is silly.

        I happen to think Fabian at right back makes a lot of sense some of the time. I’d rather have him at left mid/wing, but I’d also like to have better options at right back (for JK’s system) than we have had since Cherundolo got hurt. There’s a balancing act going on here. And those who say Fabian absolutely must be a left mid are overlooking that balancing act and ignore Fabian’s own previous preference for playing right back. He prefers left mid now. And what do y’all know, JK played him at left mid last time out.

  2. The notion that Guzan has “lost” his job is laughable. Any keeper playing behind Villa’s players would be under siege! Guzan and Lerner have to get out of Villa as soon as possible. There a rot at the club that only a complete overhaul can cure.

    Villa down 6-0 against Liverpool with 20+ to go. Sure,…it was Guzan’s fault. Ha!
