    Predictably MLS dominated (28 out of 30). When did Bill Hamid move to Denmark? It'll be 8 long years until Qatar, so it'll be interesting to see who, if anyone, is on the plane to Doha. Might make for an interesting betting pool. Who wants to copy and paste this list somewhere for some action? Other than that, there's not much to talk about here except, well, nothing really, except maybe, why? Why have this event?

    I thought Qatar was in 2022 - just 4 long years. Or is this something like dog years, but with USMNT every year feels like two?

    well, with the major European leagues and Mexico just getting back in business, and only the Scandinavian sides taking a longer break, what a WONDERFUL opportunity to select your far-from-the-best players to play a country that never gets into a major tourney. I have no idea why these decisions were made.

    Somebody please listen to Wynalda. He must be going nuts.

    You're right, of course. But it'll SEEM like 8 years... Let's hope whoever's voting in the USSSF election gets it right, whoever wins. Is Wynalda the best candidate? I don't know, but if Hatter likes him, then he must be close. Trying to figure out why Martino got in. Just muddies things up. If it ends up being an insider whom nobody outside of Chicago knows their name, it's gonna be bad. But it's coming up.
    Stay tuned.....

    This camp has never been much more than a meet and greet for US based players on the fringe. Or perhaps for some it is a bit of a tryout.

    Does anyone know if the USMNT coach search is active, or are they waiting for a the new president? Like the mini-camp before the Portugal friendly, I'm not putting much thought into this one since we're under the guidance of an interim coach.

    Hamid signed a deal a week or so before the end of the MLS regular season, but it could not be certified until the European transfer window opened. So the deal was final on January 1, but now the Danish league is on break until February 9. I'm a little surprised they are letting him go.
