Really want Jones and Bradley together? I feel like that's a combo that's never worked out well. Bradley's best performances (imo) have been with Beckerman playing in the pure defensive role. Unfortunately, JK hasn't given anyone else a consistent run to see who works best as his new partner.

Its certainly not my dream match up but its what i figure is the best we could hope for from Klinsi. I know it has never been a smooth combo, but I do feel that those 4 are the best players the USA can put on the field right now.
