1. Start Yedlin and Shea at outside defenders. Let them do what they do. Which is dribble and attack.
2. Push Bradley back to center defense, alongside Ream. (Keep the two of them there, until they retire! How many years do US soccer fans have to watch central defenders who are ill-equipped to orchestrate the possession game? It's not enough to just defend. They also have to apply central midfield skill.)
3. Out possess each opponent. Concentrate on the long-term possession of each game and goals will naturally arrive.
4. Embrace the underdog role, but don't allow it to define the one-on-one situations or battle for possession.
