MIDFIELDERS (9): Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Michael Bradley (Chievo Verona), Joe Corona (Club Tijuana), Maurice Edu (Rangers), Fabian Johnson (Hoffenheim), Jermaine Jones (Schalke 04), Jose Torres (Pachuca), Danny Williams (Hoffenheim), Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City)

FORWARDS (7): Juan Agudelo (Chivas USA), Jozy Altidore (AZ Alkmaar), Terrence Boyd (Borussia Dortmund), Clint Dempsey (Fulham), Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy), Herculez Gomez (Santos), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes)

Our best starting IX would be:
Tim Howard
Steve Cherundolo - Oguchi Onyewu - Clarence Goodson - Fabian Johnson
Clint Dempsey - Michael Bradley - Jermaine Jones - Landon Donovan
Jozy Altidore - Herculez Gomez

Of course, there's no way that Cherundolo or Bocanegra won't start. We're missing some major defensive depth with Whitbread, Ream, and Lichaj not being called up while we could have used Stu Holden, CJ Sapong, or Teal Bunbury up front.

Chandler really screwed us over.. Rumor is that he's holding out to eventually get called up for the German NT. He's a fool.. He may be good enough to warrant some caps and play occasionally but he'll never be the guy for Germany and he'll easily be replaced. Sucks cause I really like a Chandler/Lichaj fullback pairing. I also think Shea should have got the call up

I think Chris Wondoloski may be our best forward atm...
