    Wow, are we young and talented!

    So many players playing overseas in Europe and playing on top teams, we have a superstar in Pulisic and so many other budding star players.

    This may be our greatest generation.

    Watching the US team dominate the game against Wales so far - while Wales is no power they are a team we would normally be in for a fist fight style of game.

    This one is gorgeous passing and movement.

    Edit: We still need finishing.

    USA !! USA !!!

    ...and we can't beat a tiny island nation of Whales.

    USMNT looking very good against Panama. It took a goal for them to wake up, but I have never seen this much skill on the ball.

    Well, what do you know, Panama was a totally different game, we were young but aggressive, made a couple of mistakes but the attack was fantastic.

    Two young forwards making their debuts got a brace each....noice!

    I hope they can convince Yunus Musah to commit to the program.

    If that happens, then your midfield is set with McKinney / Adams and Pulisic / Musah / Reyna. Just gotta throw in a capable striker (Sargent, Soto, Gioacchini, Dike?) and a couple of defenders next to Brooks/Dest and you've got a pretty good team. Would be looking good if Richards and Cannon keep progressing. Hope they don't continue to rely on MLS has-beens or middling players but that's probably asking too much.

    These games were proof enough that MLS players should only be used in a depth situation. Once this group of Euro's gels (along with Pulisic and Sargent) they're going to be the most exciting USMNT ever. I saw enough in these 2 games to beg Berhalter to never EVER call up the likes of Bradley, Altidore, Arrilola, etc. I'm ok with a Jordan Morris in a 23 man roster or some younger players. But the last generation needs to be removed from consideration, period. If Pulisic and Sargent were out there, I'm confident we would've soundly beaten Wales and probably put up double digits against Panama.
