Here are the ten wishes of a U.S Soccer fan,brought to you right on this gloomy Friday.The US square off against Honduras tomorrow at the HDC in Carson in the first U.S game in what seems like forever.
1.Robbie Findley steps up vs. Honduras- Findley is coming off a career year,being a threat all season long with MLS Cup Champions Real Salt Lake,the question now is can he score at the international level???
2.The young midfielders taking there game to the next level- Benny Feilhaber,Sacha Kljestan and Robbie Rogers have all showed the potential to be a vital part of the national team,now it's time to put the talent to use and break out.
3.CD9 and Gooch get fit before the World Cup-While Gooch will be fit he will still need to get playing time and regain form.CD9 has been making a great recovery so far since his tragic accident.
4.Jermaine Jones is not secretly John O'Brien- O'Brien was one of the best ever American field players until multiple injuries forced him to retire and give up on a very promising career.Let's hope Jones finally gets healed up and stays healthy.
5.Jozy starts scoring and hitting form- With some many people excited about Jozy's loan to Hull City,he hasn't managed to score a goal yet in league play.I hate to say it but somethings wrong if he's our best striker.Time to step it up Jozy.
6.LD Stays in Europe and playing well-Yes, your hearing this from a Galaxy fan.In my opinion,Donovan is the best field player in the history of U.S Soccer,he needs to show his talent week in and week out,he has no more competition in the MLS.
7.Carlos Bocanegra gets playing time SOMEWHERE.- I don't care if he stays at Rennes or ends up going to St. Ettiene (sell or loan),the guy just needs to play it's that simple....he's our captain.
8.DaMarcus Beasley finds his way into the Rangers line-up.-I don't care if your a jeweler now DaMarcus,we might actually need you in South Africa this year.Some Vintage Run DMB would be amazing.
9.Luis Gil has a future,please don't over-hype him.-We saw it with Freddy Adu,who was dubbed the next Pele.Gil's name has been thrown around the academies of Arsenal,Man City and Barcalona.Perhaps,the best thing that could happen would be Gil keeping a very low profile.
10.Finally,Bob Bradley WEAR A SUIT.-We need you looking like a professional coach of a national team!!!Sadly,this is much more of a dream than a wish.But seriously cmon Bob,Armani,Dolce and Gabbana,Ralph Lauren...do I have to go on???So many choices...just wear a suit please.
