Bob Bradley's Potential 30

On Tuesday May 11, Bob Bradley and USSF have to submit their preliminary 30 man World Cup finals roster to FIFA. While those of us outside the team don't get to see the roster until it becomes public, the players getting called up typically find out several weeks in advance of the roster going public. There have been some hints, if you've looked closely, as to who has been called up, but the entire roster is still a mystery at this point.

So, for the heck of it, I've thrown together my prediction of who will make up the initial 30:


Tim Howard, Brad Guzan, & Marcus Hahnemann.


Jonathan Bornsein, Carlos Bocanegra, Jay DeMerit, Heath Pearce, Jonathan Spector, Steve Cherundolo, Clarence Goodson, & Oguchi Onyewu.


Landon Donovan, Michael Bradley, Clint Dempsey, Stuart Holden, DaMarcus Beasley, Ricardo Clark, Benny Feilhaber, Maurice Edu, Jose Francisco Torres, Sacha Kljestan, & Alejandro Bedoya.


Jozy Altidore, Charlie Davies, Brian Ching, Herculez Gomez, Edson Buddle, Conor Casey, Eddie Johnson, & Robbie Findley.

Who's in your 30?

Would BB name Marshall to the 30 (and leave him out of camp) in case someone gets hurt? Given the form of Buddle, Gomez, and Johnson, does Findley really get another look? I'd be surprised if he goes to the camp unless Davies is left off.

It is convenient that there is not too much drama here outside of the strikers. There is room to give Buddle and Gomez (and maybe even EJ) a look in camp. Of course I'd rather have a deeper striker pool or a 100% Davies.
