A little more than three months has passed since our last installment, and in that time we have seen the US outclassed by Brazil and outmanned by Sweden before earning a consolation win against a weakened Swiss team in dire conditions.

The YA staff has seen improvement by this summer's Under-20 crop, while some of the veterans took a beating, namely Landon Donovan and Oguchi Onyewu.

While we won't go Hope Solo on Bradley, we have to wonder what exactly the US boss is thinking by not calling up Josmer Altidore. Other questions, namely Taylor Twellman and Cory Gibbs (for now) have likely been answered.

Again, for this feature, we at YA are prognosticating who we think that the US head coach will call up to his final roster, not who we think should go. That would be a totally different list...
