Admittedly, I'm a Bradley-hater (both father and son). That said, Michael's a solid box-to-box player. The problem that I saw at the WC is that, when you pair him in the middle with a guy like Ricardo Clark, he gets forced into playing more of a distribution role, and I see that as a weakness in his game. It forces the wide players - Donovan and Dempsey - to bring the ball into the middle constantly, narrowing the field.
