    We need Torres to settle and direct the attack.

    We certainly need Torres, but what are the chances of Bradley starting him? Close to zero.

    Play to your strengths. Our strength is three excellent creative offensive players in Donovan, Dempsey and Torres. As far as this poll is concerned, why bother? We know who Bradley is going to stick in there already.

    I'd like to see, right-to-left: Dempsey, Bradley, Torres & Donovan. I'd also like to see Holden & Beasley get some minutes. Anything different IMO will only prove that Bradley Sr. is clueless & too conservative when it comes to strategy & tactics.

    Be confident everyone. We will see Jose Torres with Bradley, Dempsey and Donovan in the middle.

    While Torres is the sexy choice, it most likely would weaken our defense, when you have Landon & Dempsey at midfield. That means we would only have Bradley as a defensive minded midfielder. Your safer with at least two. So I'm not sure if you can trust Torres to back track.

    I can't believe 8% actually believe that ricky ricardo clark should start and play against Slovenia. I guess those are the 8% of people who know nothing about soccer, or clark voted enough times himself to make up 8% of the voting. Wake up America! Clark is the worst player on this squad.

    Hey NEWMAN! In a must win game you would play 2 defensive mids? Either you aren't good at math or you know nothing about soccer. I think it is both. We MUST WIN this game or we are done. Not to mention 2 defensive mids is assinine and proves Bradley is a quivering pussy cat when it comes to tacktics. He doensn't understand the game as you do not either. Torres would most certainly not weaken our defense. You really are ignorant. Why would having a guy who can posses the ball weaken our defense? After all a the best defense is a strong possesive offence. The less the Defense has to be on their heals because the offense is holding the ball the better our defense is. PERIOD. Torres is the answer. If Clark plays. we will loose or tie which is just a bad as a loss.

    Midfielders: Donovan, Torres, Bradley, and Dempsey, need I say more! We need ball control in the center of the pitch and these four midfielders will keep possession and help give USA the win. Go USA!

    Give me 5 midfielders Dempsey, Bradley, Torres, Edu or Holden with Donovan having free run in whatever space he can find around Altidore.

    Can we please have a poll on who thinks Bradley is the right coach? I really want a new coach bad that changes our horrific, predictable style of long-ball direct play. And to make matter worse, we aren't a good defensively organized team either.
