If you go to any number of soccer sites that cover the US team, you will see stories breaking down tactics, ...

Ray Hudson Gives His Thoughts On Landon Donovan Being Left Out Of The Squad

Ray Hudson doesn't hold any punches and he certainly doesn't hold back with his thoughts about Landon being left off the US squad. He definitely has some valid points, but there are a couple that are questionable (questioning Clint's form? Dude has been killing it this season). But anyway, it's always fun listening to Ray, especially when he is fired ...
