I never thought I would say this when Klinsy was appointed, but I think Bradley and Arena had better knowledge on attacking, defending, and adapting a style to the players strengths and weaknesses.

Would completely agree. 
Anyone can blend into the crowd.  How will you standout when it counts?

I have never been a fan of Jermaine Jones. Last night was a prime example. The US midfield was overrun. Jones and Bradley detract from one another. They end of playing very deep so there is no continuity between the back four and the attack. If it hadn't of been for Pulisic, I doubt  that the US would have had a shot, much less gotten a result. Ream played as if he was at the Cottage. Overall, not too bad but with one glaring mistake. Altidore was not the striker for this match. His strength and hold of play was  not effective against Panama. For you Brits, Panama, while a Spanish speaking country, is populated by  descendants of Africa, not Latins. They are big, strong and athletic.
Still, given that we were on the road in CONCACAF with that entails and with six potential starters out with injury, I'll take the point.

Arena, PLEEZE, drop Jones for good.
Its not that I could and others couldn't.
 Its that I did and others didn't.

I agree about Jones.  Not the  best partner for Bradley.  They really need a newer younger guy to take Jones place.  Could drop Hyndman in there and it would be a better midfield.

I agree it's time for Jones to sit, but give the man some credit, he was our best outfield player in Brazil. I wouldn't be upset if Bradley was dropped as well, he's been dreadful the second the ink dried on that contract from Toronto.
You can observe a lot by just watching.
