    I am surprised Guzan and Lichaj didn’t get called up. What does Hahnemann offer over Guzan?

    Hartman baby… wheres the love? i dont care if hes old, i always thought he should have been the top one. Keller is old and he was in the world cup. I will never forgive the galaxy for giving up El Gato

    I’m with you “g-day” on the Galaxy letting Hartman. But as much as I loved him on the club level – eventhough he cost us big time on 2 MLS Cup finals – he was not and is not international calibur. He did not impress on his previous call ups to the national team.

    Yeah, I figured you’d highlight the fact that a budgie made the squad. šŸ˜‰
