I'm not a Berhalter hater but that roster is a rough ridin' disaster. Roldan over Malik Tillman is wild. I think JMo is unfairly maligned but Arriola absolutely outplayed him. Pefok should be on this roster. Aaron Long shouldn't be in the same galaxy as this roster.

Agree on the Tillman miss. Arriola v Morris is kind of a funny debate. Really, the only time either of them are getting time is straight hustle/press moments when we need to go hard at goal. Which case I can see the benefit of Morris over Arriola in that he has more experience in that role and can even sub in up top if things got terrible.

The whole Haji thing is wild. I read an article on Pefok the other day and didn't realize he doesn't speak english. Haji's history with some of our more important players and general fit had to of been the straw that broke that camel's decision. Just super strange that the only Haji we got was in absolute crap conditions that completely took the game away from him. Not sure how you don't vet his abilities and fit out more in qualifying, but that's GGG for ya. I also think Haji prototypically fills the 9 role in GGG's system a little better than Pefok. All that said, i don't think GGG is going to really play anyone other than Jesus or maybe Weah up there unless it's a feed balls in the box situation.

Straight up hate the Long pick. That dud shouldn't be anywhere near this team, but I'd be angrier about it if Ream wasn't selected. If Long starts, i'll be furious. Really crap that Richards isn't healthy, but it is what it is.

I'm off the ledge with the picks. I hate Roldan on the roster but with the MMA midfield healthy, he'll never play, and he's apparently a "locker room guy."

I'm good with Morris for the same reason I defended him during qualifying and the friendlies, we need a forward with pace, to come off the bench late.

I hate the long pick, I hate it even more that pundits are saying he's going start over Ream.

I drove by the McKennie billboard in Little Elm yesterday and it got me pumped for the WC to start.
