US Menâ€™s National Team Coach Bob Bradley has hit back at the critics that keep asking for more attacking play from midfield.
In a recent radio interview with Glen Davis on KBME, Bradley said: "I get annoyed with everybody that goes into that line of thinking, We have two-way players. Players that make it hard when the other team has the ball. Players that do a good job of finding some of our more attacking players and I find it hard to understand why that becomes such a topic all the time."
With USA facing Mexico in their first hexagonal qualifier on February 11th 2009 Bradley made it clear where his selections would be coming from: "That time of year for MLS players is obviously a challenge because they aren't playing games."
It could be argued that the majority of USAâ€™s European based players are finding it hard to get regular match time.
On the subject of players moving to Europe Bradley explained: "When you do change teams, there's a period where you have to establish yourself, and I don't think during that period you can always fully access the move."
