Best young talent in Europe sitting behind an average prospect an an average winger??



But Hazard, Hulk, Mata, Torres, Ramires, Lampard would be a deadly offensive unit.. Where would Mata play though? Isn't he normally deployed as a winger?

--Hulk---Torres--Hazard
-----------Mata
----Lampard??---Ramires
Cole--Terry--Luiz--Ivanovic
----------Cech

Something like that??

Marin to backup Kalou, Hazard to backup Sturridge, hulk to backup mata

FOrreal though, did all of you fools forget about KEVIN DE BRUYNE, Belgium's best creative talent? WE BOUGHT HIM LAST JANUARY AND HE STAID AT GENK ON LOAN AND WAS THE BEST PLAYER IN BELGIUM.

He is coming to the blues this summer. Already bought and paid for. WE ARE STACKED

As for the US game they actually weren't as bad as the scoreline dictated. But one thing is certain the US central defense is poor and overrated. Bocanegra and Owenyu aren't long term or sustainable options and we need to look elsewhere to find them. Both of them were caught ball watching numerous times. I think Tim Ream can be our future CB. I think a year at the npower would do be great for his game before he gets a crack at the EPL once they get promoted.

-Fabian Johnson is a really good player. Really young and has great skill attacking from the LB spot. He's going to be great. But he needs to improve on his defense as I think he did get burnt today(not sure) Now we need to start Eric Lichaj at the RB spot and we'll have a nice fullback pairing. I think Lichaj has good potential as well
-Donovan struggled today and Brazil marked him really well.
-Bradley is a nice player, box-box type of player and a good passer in the central mid. Also plays with a great attitude out there

Dude it's Brazil. They just put a beating on Denmark a very strong side. Even though our defense was awful we had a decent performance in the final third.

I care more about the qualifiers more than a friendly.

Brazil ain't that good we just couldn't finish and they got a couple freebies. They had a few "Brazil" moments but this team has a long way to go IMO. Just looking at their set piece defense (although playing a CB and random RB didn't help)... I mean a bigger team like England or Germany or Belgium could put 2 or 3 past em just on set pieces... the USA could have easily done so today. Besides Silva, Sandro, and Marcelo they are completely clueless defensively and on set pieces completely clueless as a unit.

for the USA this is a pretty good showing IMO. giving up those goals is disheartening, but being a threat going forward is far better to see.
