So because Tyler Adams is a monster at age 18, it means we should be flooding RBNY with 18-year-old's in the starting XI? Or is Tyler Adams the exception to the rule?
 
Anyway, my point wasn't that they should get 0 caps. My point was that there's no rush, and you can't have all teenagers in every game. There's a lot of youth in this roster. Next time around some of them will be left out while guys like Weah get a chance. 


A guy like Sargent should be exposed to quality players. That is how they will get better. He destroyed teams 3-4 times older in the u20 tournament. Why not see what he can do with a quality national team?

Adams playing right mid. Had a weak left footed shot inside the box.  Overall seemed very active.  Not sure I like him is a right mid though. Central mid or right back seem like better spots for him.

Adams has been the second-best player on the field IMO.  Agree that right mid isn't the place for him going forward though.  I'm dying as I dream of a McKennie - Adams partnership in central midfield for the next 12 years.

Do you realize after watching this that if this was the squad we had sent to Trinidad we'd be headed to Russia? What an indictment of the first team that is.
Let's Go Buffalo!!!

Think Tyler is at his best on the inside but it's hard for a coach to see that athleticism and speed and not want him on the perimeter. Especially in this case where there were some other good options for inside.

Adams is EXACTLY what that team was lacking in T&T. Im gonna go out in a limb here and say that if he had started the US would be going.

Interesting to see this team as they have 5 potential CDM states in Adams McKinnry Acosta Gonzales and maybe Williams . Adams flexibility works to his advantage.

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

I was surprised to see Arena on the broadcast for this game, I fast forwarded right through him and Lalas talking.

Adams had some really nice chances at least.
