this is what i remember about Tim Ream. at the time, his passing skills as a CB were great, but never remember him for being physical, neither him or Holgersson or Rafa or Keel. 

 

Marcus Holgersson was the most underrated Red Bull of all time and I'm willing to die on this hill. Petke's biggest mistake as a coach was replacing him with Armando just because Armando knew kung fu and was willing to use it.

He did stick a few opponents.
Hence the You Got Reamed chant.

 

Ha well we've got a "you got Lade" chant too...

i think his appropriate level is upper Championship. and i think that's a perfectly fine level for US players. quite possible that Ream, despite him being an experienced player in England, is not up to snuff for the national team. and iirc, he wasn't always great for country either. 

 

Ream was never mean enough for USMNT level. He's a finesse defender but at a certain point you need to be willing and able to knock someone on their ass.

Miazga looked awful in his last few usmnt games. He is a player that is playing with no confidence.
 

 

Which is odd because he was apparently playing really well for Reading to end their season.

Anyone else think Long looked uncharacteristically shaky on the ball last night?
