Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's for 2/16

Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's: Are the top Crew contemplations of the day. If you're new to the Crew... Video example of what is a Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk .

Quoteable: Josh Williams

In general, Williams knows how to give a no bullshit interview that's interesting.

Crew SC's Cristian Martinez and Panama U-20's face off against US U-20's Saturday at 3:30 PM.

A very good write up on what to expect in the United States group and from the US team as well according to RSL Soapbox.

The US and Panama will be expected to move on from their qualifying group with Haiti and St. Kitts & Nevis. That would put either of them in one of the two championship groups. The top two from each of those championship groups will then qualify for the 2017 U-20 World Cup in Korea later this Spring.

Here's the US roster that Cristian will be facing Saturday. 

GOALKEEPERS (2): Jonathan Klinsmann (University of California; Newport Beach, Calif.), JT Marcinkowski (Georgetown; Alamo, Calif.)
DEFENDERS (7): Danny Acosta (Real Salt Lake; Salt Lake City, Utah), Marlon Fossey (Fulham F.C.; Surbiton, England), Justen Glad (Real Salt Lake; Tucson, Ariz.), Aaron Herrera (New Mexico; Casa Grande, Ariz.), Erik Palmer-Brown (Sporting Kansas City; Lee's Summit, Mo.), Tommy Redding (Orlando City SC; Oviedo, Fla.), Auston Trusty (Philadelphia Union; Media, Pa.)
MIDFIELDERS (6): Tyler Adams (New York Red Bulls; Wappingers Falls, N.Y), Luca de la Torre (Fulham F.C.; San Diego, Calif.), Jonathan Gonzalez (CF Monterrey; Santa Rosa, Calif.), Jeremiah Gutjahr (Indiana University; Bloomington, Ind.), Sebastian Saucedo (Real Salt Lake; Park City, Utah), Eryk Williamson (University of Maryland; Alexandria, Va.)
FORWARDS (5): Coy Craft (FC Dallas; Frisco, Texas), Jeremy Ebobisse (Portland Timbers; Bethesda, Md.), Brooks Lennon (Real Salt Lake; Paradise Valley, Ariz.), Jonathan Lewis (New York City FC; Plantation, Fla.), Emmanuel Sabbi (UD Las Palmas; Libertyville, Ill.)
In the group Panama is the big test, even though they are going through a different transition with a new head coach, highlighted here.

Can be watched on, all the matches can also be viewed according to the US Soccer Federation on the Concacaf Facebook Page.

Another writeup by MLSSoccer here, highlighting Cristian Martinez as one of the top MLS players in the tournament.

Getting ready for ATL in Carolina..

All pictures are here. No Artur yet it appears.

But confused. Were the Crew in Columbus, Ohio yesterday? Or Charleston, South Carolina? Lol.

As Citadel's coach posted the following on Instagram yesterday at the same time.

2017 Crew could use a bit of Hejduk in them.. Just a little more going with what you feel.

Instinctively what is the correct action instead of second guessing every little thing.

2016 Crew just didn't play much in the way of free, relaxed soccer. I hope Williams quotes above mean something is progressing.
