Formation XI (4-3-1-2)



Explanation of Formation

The team strategy is direct ball with high discipline and physical combat. Brad Friedel beats other great keepers like Meola, Keller and Howard to stand as a first choice. Both full-back are from Canada like Bruce Wilson and Paul Stalteri. Thomas Dooley was born in Germany but he was a USA legendary footballer and Marcelo Balboa was selected in All-Time MLS best XI, will stand as central defender. Walter Bahr is a legend from WC 1950, is set as defensive midfielder. Dampsey and Gonsalves would be divisible as left and right-midfielder respectively. Donovan is already selected as free-role forward behind the main strikers like Patenaude and Yorke.

    1. I’m impressed by Lalas but he get very low seasonal average points by media during his career at Series A.

    Has Tim Howard (GK---USA) achieved enough to be an Honorable Mention?

    1. I’m not always rely on rating in dbscalcio but the case of comparison between Friedel and Howard is exceptional when they’re in a same position, same era and same competition. Fridel obtained the seasonal average rating much higher than Howard so I’d not name Howard in honorable mention.

  7. I agree it's a high time Clint Dempsey replace Claudio Reyna but Tim Howard is not great enough according to seasonal media rating.

  8. Hi Naratorn,

    what do you think about Atiba Hutchinson? He started performing at amazing levels only at Besiktas recently, but he has an amazing Dbscalcio rating for a defensive midfielder...

    http://www.dbscalcio.it/sn-schedaCalciatore.php?nomePlayer=Atiba&cognomePlayer=Hutchinson&dataNascitaPlayer=08-02-1983

    Maybe at the end of the season he'd deserve a mention?

    1. Hi Michele
      Altiba Hutshison has never been named in any top 3 CONCACAF player of the year although he received high avr. seasonal rating 4 consecutive seasons in Turkey. The standard point of rating of Turkish media should be set based on internal competitiveness.

      Delete
    2. Ok, I didn't check CONCACAF player of the year, even if for a defensive midfielder it is hard to win an award due to their lack of presence in highlights (an exception is Kante in BPL last year). Thanks for your reply!

  9. Joe Kennaway - Canada's Goalkeeper of the Century by IFFHS and 3 times CONCACAF best player of the year;

    Clyde Best - Foward from Bermudas with a interesting carrer in England;

    Ergilio Hato - Curacao goalkeeper that research a very, but very good peak;

    Those players should be under consideration.
