Has the time come for Klinsmann to replace Howard in goal?

” In his nearly two years as manager of the U.S. national team, Jurgen Klinsmann has been anything but averse to change. Before Friday’s World Cup qualifier in Jamaica, Klinsmann had not started the same lineup in two successive games during his now 26-match tenure. He has repeatedly shown that individuals are subjugated to the bigger cause. Klinsmann’s unofficial excommunication of the country’s all-time leading scorer, Landon Donovan, has gotten the lion’s share of media and fan attention, but Donovan isn’t alone in feeling the wrath of Klinsmann’s detachment. Last fall, lead striker Jozy Altidore was left off the roster for the team’s final two semifinal qualifiers despite being in the midst of a breakout season at his club, AZ Alkmaar. The morning of the opening match of this year’s Hexagonal in Honduras, team captain Carlos Bocanegra was dropped to the bench. He’s not even on the roster for this series of June matches.” SI
