The EJ Conundrum
He moved his career to England, as everyone advised, and proceeded to make no impact. So the question is, does he deserve to make an impact against England at Wembley?
First off, the whole criticism of EJ and his tenure at Fulham is a little ridiculous. We see this all over the world. A team fighting against relegation going with the old hands that kept the club up numerous times before. The move abroad should pay off in the future, even if it is only for a specific window of time. (World Cup 2010 would be prime).
So I am calling here for the Grown-Ass-Man to get the start in England. It’s not like we have anyone else due to the boy wonder Jozy Altidore putting in work for the corperation over-lords. And we all know Duece and Landycakes are not out and out forwards per-say. I think that would be a nice front three there. EJ flanked by Donovan and Dempsey. This way, when EJ decides to get scared, instead of forcing backpasses 20 yards from net, he can just swap himself with Duece. Everyone’s happy… until Jozy is available at least.
UPDATE: One roster update for you…
Maurice Edu replacing Benny Feilhaber. Apparently Benny suffered a knee injury in the U-23 tourney the other day. Edu gets another shot, and in all honesty he deserves it. The only thing that kept him off this roster in the first place is John Carver.
