"That's what it's called. Yeah, all those things. NBC sports soccer network dot org. Yeah. And he's a good guy. And I like him, but he's like, well, you know, he's going to make more money. Yes, he definitely will. Like, his life-changing money compared to what he's on in MLS, but he's not going to play and Nicholas was one of these advanced the idea. Well, he's facing top quality players and taking shots on him in training. No, goalkeepers have to play. It's not the same training will never be the same as games. It's a unique position. It's not that unique of a position. And look, there are examples which people will be furiously tweeting towards this. This podcast right now of where goalkeepers weren't status for their clubs, but were starters internationally and they were Sergio Romero's the big one took Argentina to a World Cup final. Right. It didn't last that long. You want your goalkeepers? Do you want your players to be starting? And the goalkeepers know different and that's a worry for me. Is it a great move to go to arsenal? Yes. I get it for him. I get it for him, but it's not good for the U.S. as far as I'm concerned. I mean, look, would I rather him be playing regularly? Of course. But I do, I can see a little bit of how a goalkeeper can maybe remain sharper as a number two in a way that an outfield player I'd be more concerned with. No. Then he got it too. The modern goalkeeper isn't in this isolated position like it used to be. Modern goalkeepers really involved in things. He's not running up and down the field. Look at how it yeah, but look at, look at how involved the modern goalkeeper is that all the top goalkeepers we think of are playing with their feet. They're getting touches on the ball. They're under pressure. You don't get that same kind of intensity in training. You just don't. That's why it's training. That's why it's practiced. And we already know Turner is a goalkeeper who is not exactly the best with his feet. If he has won Achilles heel, his heel is his foot, bear with me. And he needs to play. It's not that we've seen a ton of Stefan, but you know he's the U.S.'s number one. He's played as their number one through the bulk of World Cup qualifying. He's been Manchester City's number two for a while now. That's been his role. When I watch him play, to me, like, from the time he was with Columbus to the time he was to him being with Manchester City, I don't feel like I'm looking at a player that's gotten worse. I feel like he's I'm still comfortable with him as the goalkeeper and he's been in that number two job for quite some time now. If that, if the sudden drop off is going to come because he's not getting regular minutes as the first team keeper, it hasn't come yet. So I don't know. We'll see. Who knows? Maybe every guy is different, but to me it's not, again, it's not a end of the world scenario. But we'll see if it happens. Hasn't happened yet. Any other takeaways, JJ, from this team? I think obviously the boost your absence is unfortunate. We've been talking about that. I would just say with Tim ream. He's been slowly phased out by Greg. You feel like early Greg had leaned on his experience. And he ended up even in left back, left fullback a couple of times. But that era seems to be drawing to a clause. And that's more veteran leadership that's being moved out of the squad, despite Fulham going really well and him starting every single game. His last game was El Salvador in September. That's the last time he started, and he was in the squad the last time that September again in the four one away win in Honduras. So he is being kind of fizzed out. There's one other thing that stands out to me before we move on. 13 MLS players who have not been playing football for some months now. Greg says that January camp will have bridged that fitness gap and sharpness gap for them. I'm not so sure. I think it's a look at someone like Brendan Harrison. They've been on break he hasn't played in 6 weeks, Virginia odes. He hasn't played since December 4th, I think, through COVID and injury. Yeah. But they would have but they would have had organized trainings with their clubs in that. I mean, MLS is only in pre season and apart from this January camp, how much have they how much have they done? That's in a group setting in a team setting. It's a concern. I don't know whether it will end up mattering, I don't know. The things for me seeing Jordan Morris back in the squad just gave me good feelings, JJ. He is one of Andrew's people. He's one of my people. I've got the jingle yet Andrew. I've even thought about it. Can you work on it, please? Nope. No, I'll get to it. I'll get to it. But yeah, I was very happy to see him back in. JJ Weston McKinney, Greg bear halter said that he's what was the quote. He's probably in the form of his life. I'm excited. I mean, if that is, in fact, the case, which it seems to be right now with the way he's been playing at Juventus, I'm excited to see how that manifests itself with the national team. And then the only other thing that was interesting to me talk about rim not being there, Anthony Robinson is the only true left back that was included on this squad. I'm going to play three games in a week. He ain't playing three games in a week. So it's going to be some experimentation time. And I guess desk will be the guy who will probably audition for that left back role. His versatility his in terms of ending up in any position where he's needed is going to be tested. I would say. Yeah. So I'll be interested to see that. And I'll be interested to see who becomes, you know, who is, you know, I assume when all things are equal, if everyone's healthy, Robinson, on the left, desk on the right, when desk moves over to the left to give Robinson some kind of breather. Who is the preferred right back to fill in for desk? Because I know Regan is now starting again regularly at Bo vista. We don't know Deandre edlin. It sounds like it's headed back to MLS. That's not definitive yet. I thought I even saw that whole city. We're interested in the outland, but it looks like he could be going to Miami. So we'll have to wait and see. He's on the squad. I'll just be, I'll be interested to see who what the pecking order is of right backs for this. When you think yedlin has had enough of weather in the northeast of England, you know, Sunderland, Newcastle hall, like he wants to go somewhere else. You know, coming straight from the heat of turkey. No. Are Miami and.

"Tonight, from billings, Montana. The U.S. and Mexico. I don't have a ton more to say about this game. I mean, if I wanted to sit here and find negatives, maybe I could, but I don't really have them. I know you. It's funny you had mentioned walker Zimmerman earlier and being pulled out of position. Largely, I actually thought that he was in the second half. He made some huge plays for the U.S. to kind of cut down Mexican chances. He was, I thought, at least certainly in the second half, I get what you're saying about early on him maybe being problematic and trying to keep that press intact. But in the second half, I thought he was a rock for them. It wasn't so much keeping the press intact Andrew. It was like following him and his when he went him and has dropped off. So you expect maybe an aerial combat with their number 9 him and his, but that's not really what happened. He was dropping into the middle and Zimmerman was following him and you saw in the chances you're like, where did this gap come from? That Mexico are now running through. And that was Zimmerman just coming out after him and so once he stopped doing that, I thought he had next link game. And in terms of one V one defending, turns to some of the blocks he made. He was superb. I'm not criticizing. I largely I like that center back pairing. That worked that works for me. Miles Robinson walker's in. Like, I'm good moving forward with that. I think based on last night's evidence, that is something that works very, very well. I like mine's Robinson anyway. I think he's I think his ability to cover ground reads the game very well and he's comfortable on the ball and those are things you need as a modern center back. I think he's got very good. That lineup last night for the U.S.. Stefan included, he didn't have a ton of opportunities to leave his imprint on the game. But when he was called upon, he did everything asked him. He had he had a great game. If everyone is healthy, how many things are different? If this is game one World Cup Qatar, how different would that line up be? Is it only best yet one? Is everything else? Is that pretty? No. Don't forget the starting lineup doesn't have purely again. So yes, you're right. And the other one I'm wondering about, I guess right now, yes, pure psych obviously would start. But like Gio raina is going to have to re earn that spot back in I don't think he starts in this current setup as we sit here and now and that is not a reflection on him as a footballer. He knows speaks to the quality of this team. Look, you can't, there's only 11 spots, right? So I think I honestly my gut tells me that. That Greg bear holder wants to stick with Stefan and gold. I know he says there's very little between him and Matt Turner. I think he wants to stick with Stefan and gold. The fact that he went back to him after Turner did literally nothing wrong in his run of games, suggests plenty about that. Deandre yedlin then for dest is the other one. That midfield axis of Musa, Adams and mckenney that triumvirate rather, that doesn't change for me. Agreed. That doesn't change. The desk the edlin one is interesting. Yeah, searching your desk has done a good job. He's played really well for this team, especially an attack, plays in a good ball. He's a threat. And the thought of him and waya possibly on the same side is if they're both playing the way that they're capable of playing the speed on the right. They're going to recap it. But Deandre edlin, he was called upon last night, and he was excellent. I thought as well. Got beat once that I remember in the second half, but nothing came of it. He's got great, didn't get a yellow card. They were worried about remember they had married clapboard him in Latin America was asked, you think the next time he folds, he would get a yellow. Well, he didn't. He was solid. And if anything, I think he grew into the game. So these are the signs of growth within this team in that the next man up mentality. It's not just, you know, those aren't just three words. Like they actually mean something for the U.S. now because they have this depth. They can have a true next man up mentality because the next guy who's ready to go and fill in a spot is almost of the quality of the players starting above him. And I don't think we've had our concerns, but we advise defensive abilities in the past. But I think since he's been at Rafa Rafa, Newcastle, and then afterwards, obviously, moving on to Galatasaray. I think he's I think he's a solid solid defender. And I wouldn't be concerned about him there. I think the front three is your question, Mark, no. I think peppy stays because he likes him as that center that's central striker. Not because he's not really a center forward and conventional sense. And then purely coming in, how does that upset the ironson where either side where right now is done enough Andrew just from last night showing a lawn to be a starter? I agree. That is, I mean, you know, I work for two way I mean, he went down as an own goal, but he pretty much did everything to create the goal in the previous World Cup qualifier for the U.S.. So he's he's been very good. And last night was the cherry on top performance for a good run for him. I don't like the idea of dropping Brendan aronson when he gives you so much energy and so much running. But.

"And right now, sure, he was hurt today. He's healthy. He's good enough to play. He's on the team. You got a plan. You got a plan, and against Mexico, I mean, look, we'll see how it goes. But like, I play him all 90. This is it. This is the marquee match in qualifying. So like, maybe I'm a too much of a fan and I'm just like speaking from what I want to see as a fan. But this is kind of, you know, this is kind of what we've been waiting for here. A couple of the other guys I'm interested to get your take on JJ one player who was not on the squad and that was John Brooks, who was very honest about being left off and he basically put it on himself. You know, he's like, we talked about how he has not performed up to what we expect from him with the U.S. in recent appearances. And Jeff Carlisle was on this podcast afterwards. And he said, you know, the same for whatever reason John Brooks does not travel well right now with the U.S.. And bear halter and this the setup, they have they have taken note and they left him off for a vitally important game. One of their most experienced defenders will not be a part of this team. That was not an easy decision to come to. I wouldn't think. It couldn't have been. And I think it was the wrong decision. I surprised to hear you say that. You've been very critical of Brooks. Yeah, I know, but what's the sense in dropping them for this game? What's that going to achieve? And Brooks even in his statement mentioned how he felt he'd been paying much better in the last couple of games for Wolfsburg, so I mean, if he's playing well, bring him. This idea doesn't travel well. He's going to have to constantly travel. What are you supposed to do with that? I just think the experience, if bear holder says, I don't want to start you, that is fair enough. But to even have him in and around the camp, working with the guy he's in training. I would have brought him. I really would have that kind of experiences, it's invaluable. And Deandre edlin is the suddenly of the defensive unit becomes the senior man. Yeah, I wonder if he's who will see with desk, not playing. I mean, like we've said, not that not that I want to see any player that I consider to be a first 11 player for this team get hurt. But that's a position where there is depth. Between I'd be shocked if it was in the edlin, honestly. Over Regan, I think so. Or there is no way Joel scally is coming in to make his debut. His first ever international. I say no way. I don't know that. To make your international debut against Mexico in a world in a World Cup qualifying game. And your weeks or months into your senior Bundesliga career and you have you have one zero caps and you haven't you haven't trim with the team or anything. I think that would be a really, really big show. To do that and Stephen Ghana touches got in touch and said, I've been so impressed with boost your that like a boost your mckenney moves to three with atoms at right back. I'm not doing that. No. I understand why he would say that. Bruzio has gone over to venezia and really impressed. Yeah. So I understand I understand wanting to manipulate things to get him into the squad, but I just atoms to me in that role is too important. Mess with other stuff if you want. Like to me that we have found like do you know how vital that is to have a guy who can do that work in defensive midfield? Like when you get that kind of player like I'm not saying Tyler Adams is in golo kante. But he's kind of Conte light in a lot of the things that he's able to do. When you get a player like that, you don't mess with it. Like that's such an important piece to have. Somebody who can defend and make up for like other defenders pushing forward. Like, and who can also push play forward in his own right. A guy who doesn't really get tired. Like who's going to fill don't mess with it? He's going to fill in playing multiple roles as well he can fill in if her full backs are going to have to get forward at some point if we're going to carry any kind of threat then he's going to be able to slide across and cover and he does performs multiple roles. So I don't want to take him out of that position. I don't know what bear halter is going to do. He's not always the easiest to predict. But I don't think I see scally staring and I don't think I see Adams right back. I would agree with both of those things. One, I think you can predict that Greg bear halter for this Mexico match will wear his coolest pair of shoes. That's important to him. That's probably going to happen. One thing on the Mexico side Andrew, Felipe cardenas was writing about their defensive kind of issues. And this is a paragraph that stood out to me. Mexico or a high pricing team that often leave their center backs exposed and transition. When they play in a three man backline, central midfielder, Edson Alvarez plays in between the two center box..

And bear halter and this the setup, they have they have taken note and they left him off for a vitally important game. One of their most experienced defenders will not be a part of this team. That was not an easy decision to come to. I wouldn't think. It couldn't have been. And I think it was the wrong decision. I surprised to hear you say that. You've been very critical of Brooks. Yeah, I know, but what's the sense in dropping them for this game? What's that going to achieve? And Brooks even in his statement mentioned how he felt he'd been paying much better in the last couple of games for Wolfsburg, so I mean, if he's playing well, bring him. This idea doesn't travel well. He's going to have to constantly travel. What are you supposed to do with that? I just think the experience, if bear holder says, I don't want to start you, that is fair enough. But to even have him in and around the camp, working with the guy he's in training. I would have brought him. I really would have that kind of experiences, it's invaluable. And Deandre edlin is the suddenly of the defensive unit becomes the senior man. Yeah, I wonder if he's who will see with desk, not playing. I mean, like we've said, not that not that I want to see any player that I consider to be a first 11 player for this team get hurt. But that's a position where there is depth. Between I'd be shocked if it was in the edlin, honestly. Over Regan, I think so. Or there is no way Joel scally is coming in to make his debut. His first ever international. I say no way. I don't know that. To make your international debut against Mexico in a world in a World Cup qualifying game. And your weeks or months into your senior Bundesliga career and you have you have one zero caps and you haven't you haven't trim with the team or anything. I think that would be a really, really big show. To do that and Stephen Ghana touches got in touch and said, I've been so impressed with boost your that like a boost your mckenney moves to three with atoms at right back. I'm not doing that. No. I understand why he would say that. Bruzio has gone over to venezia and really impressed. Yeah. So I understand I understand wanting to manipulate things to get him into the squad, but I just atoms to me in that role is too important. Mess with other stuff if you want. Like to me that we have found like do you know how vital that is to have a guy who can do that work in defensive midfield? Like when you get that kind of player like I'm not saying Tyler Adams is in golo kante. But he's kind of Conte light in a lot of the things that he's able to do. When you get a player like that, you don't mess with it. Like that's such an important piece to have. Somebody who can defend and make up for like other defenders pushing forward. Like, and who can also push play forward in his own right. A guy who doesn't really get tired. Like who's going to fill don't mess with it? He's going to fill in playing multiple roles as well he can fill in if her full backs are going to have to get forward at some point if we're going to carry any kind of threat then he's going to be able to slide across and cover and he does performs multiple roles. So I don't want to take him out of that position. I don't know what bear halter is going to do. He's not always the easiest to predict. But I don't think I see scally staring and I don't think I see Adams right back. I would agree with both of those things. One, I think you can predict that Greg bear halter for this Mexico match will wear his coolest pair of shoes. That's important to him. That's probably going to happen. One thing on the Mexico side Andrew, Felipe cardenas was writing about their defensive kind of issues. And this is a paragraph that stood out to me. Mexico or a high pricing team that often leave their center backs exposed and transition. When they play in a three man backline, central midfielder, Edson Alvarez plays in between the two center box..
