Any thoughts on who from Europe with make the final 18 man roster for the match?

Also, from the USSF: "In addition to the 26 players arriving in California on Thursday, Bradley has also submitted releases for eight U.S. players based in Europe. Per FIFA rules, requests for the release of players must be sent no later than 15 days prior to match day. The final decision on which European-based players will travel to Phoenix will be made the week prior to the Mexico game."

How much longer will Eddie Johnson continue to get called up on potential despite his recent performance?

Also, is it surprising that none of the U-20 team got called up, or are they still training?

Eight european players... interesting. If you were to guess, who do think it would be?

The Mexican team looks much more experienced than the U.S. team, based on the players listed above. Mexico is coming to win, not just to please their fans in Arizona. This game should be a much tougher test for the young U.S. team than the Denmark game.

Any guesses on the percentage of fans in the stadium that will support Mexico? My guess would be 70 to 80 percent.

Matt Reis will kick some Mexi in the head and Nowak will send him to the hospital.

Nowak will send him to the hospital? Isn't that a little too good a use of English grammar? Nowak will send him to hospital.

Why would we bother calling in any European players at this point? Most are playing pretty well and need to stay with their teams in the heart of their seasons. If you want to take a young second or third tier Euro based player, then fine, but leave the Beasley's, the Onyewu's, the Conveys, etc in Europe.

The next six months are about development and exposure. If you want to bring some Euro's in wait until this summer for Copa America.

My guess for European players, if they are able to make the trip:

...but the Colorado players (or was it Salt Lake) will insist that Novak said "send him back to Nicaragua."

How well connected in Bradley with the European managers? Arena made an effort to visit several of them and establish relationships which probably helped him in calling them up for friendlies.

To be fair though, Bradley got the job just before training camp opened, but still...

They mentioned on the ESPN telecast the other day that Brad Davis would have been an option but he had a wedding to attend. I wonder what his excuse is now?

this team badly needs a coach so we can start to figure out who the real players will be in 2010 and I doubt many of htese will be in the group.
