So who is left from that generation of US Mens team players?

If you look at our 2002 WC roster I think only Beasley, Mastroeni, Donovan, Friedel and Keller are still active?

I will never forget that article talking about how he didnt realize how bad he was hurt during a collision, until half time came around and the doctor somehow let him try to play when he sneeezed, and realized that his eyeball was popping out. lol

How tough of a guy is that? He literally was about to go into a game and play through an injury until he found out his eyeball was about to pop out cause of the bone around the eye being broken that held that in place? LOL

I'll agree with Yanksarecoming that Cooper is our best chance of having a McBride part two.

If he could just build up his speed he has the accuracy and physical play to dominate the box..I'm not sure if playing in the third league in England is the best idea but hopefully he finally proves himself in Europe this year.

Mr. Mathis, with your short, rather uneventful and pathetic career meet Mr. McBride, a real player with results.

Thank you, Brian McBride for everything that you have done for us. Thank you for the goals, the blood, the sweat, the tears, the pain and the joy. But most of all thank you for your pure class in everything you did, from wearing your country's colors with pride to being the model citizen and family man.

Thank you, sir, indeed.

I loved that dude. Embodied everything about what I consider the American Style of Play.


Totally Off Topic: I've been meaning to say this for days, but football season means I never have any time, at the beat game Wednesday night, a guy was wearing a "Valderrama 10" Tampa Bay Mutiny shirt.

I second that sentiment. However, this distinctly American trsdition won't work, because FIFA requires that numbers 1 through 23 be used for the World Cup and other big affairs.
