Question of the Day

So if an older late addition to the US squad got dropped to his team's B team, should we still call him up?

That's the question you have to ask yourself as Jermaine Jones got dropped to the 4th Div, Schalke B team today for "poor attitude during matches," on the heels of a 5-0 loss to Kaiserslautern. While his play and aggressiveness has been among the best in the Bundesliga over the last few years (injuries aside), his tumultuous relationship with his coach is well documented. Of note is his recent strife with the coach over his prolonged injury concerns when he couldn't manage to get healthy.

Now, it's not like we are short of quality players in our midfield, especially, younger ones such as Edu, Bradley Jr., and others, so it's not like we are desperate for a guy who most likely will be too old for a call up during the next WC.

What's your take?
