I think Bobby Convey might have to sit this one out. Maybe Beasley has learned his lesson?





Or probably not Berhalter, that's just my favorite to get a little more experience in there, plus I think the guy's got a ton of heart and given his chance he can really lift the team for a game when needed. But more than likely we'll see Conrad start as he's been the one to come off the bench to play in the back.

Pull Johnson and Beasley. DOn't ever put Beasley on the field again. O'Brien in the midfield (I keep saying this but Arena won't listen), and Start COnrad in the back. He's better than Pope anyway. You can't play three in the back against that much speed. USA 3 Ghana 1. Italy 2 Czech 0.

I read that O'brien is still not right. If he was, I would love to see him play.

ONe thing beasley can still do is defend and make a run. I think you use his speed and put him in there as a defensive sort.

We need to score a goal, maybe 2 or 3. I'd like to see johnson get a shot at it.

Matt, I love the scores.

I agree with Beaseley being a good defensive player, and hell he just had a goal called back, he's the only player to actually put the ball across the line, so he's got that going for him.

And if O'Brien was feeling okay, I think he would have come on late in the Italy game for some fresh legs.

Maybe we'll see Wolf on instead of Johnson. And Conrad in the back.

US 2 Ghana 1
Italy 1 Czech 0

All this talk of Ghana speed, i wonder how fast conrad is. shouldnt we put our fastest team on the field? We need to score. Johnson has got to play. Beasley did put the ball in the net. He is also super fast and a great pest. I think he would disrupt and be all over the field. Convey has got to play too. You guys know more about this sport than i do, but it seems we should find a way to put our best 11 on the field and go with it.

We may know more, but it doesn't mean we can predict what Arena will do. But I do predict that Beasely will start. He won't blow it this time.

One surprise for sure would be the return of Eddie Lewis after he let that guy get wide open down the sideline for the Czech first goal.
Let's hope his days are done. A slight possiblity he comes off the bench to add a little offense on the left if some one over there is having their way with Convey.
