re: If you ever need a lesson in the importance of defensive shape - uway
From the ZM piece: [quote]But the long-term question is more serious, and must concentrate on why Brazil has stopped producing world-class attacking players – which meant a dependence upon Neymar, underperformers like Hulk and Fred guaranteed of their place[/quote] This is the key IMO. Brazil c...

re: Michael Bradley's performance versus Germany compared to France's midfielders - uway
[quote]In short, these pros and cons are pretty much what we got from Bradley in the WC. It was disappointing only insofar as he's capable of matches here and there (especially for the USMNT) where he looked every bit Xabi Alonso or Daniele De Rossi and [b]he didn't have any quite that level in Braz...

re: Michael Bradley's performance versus Germany compared to France's midfielders - uway
[quote]Serious question, how familiar were you with MB before this WC? One of his stand out traits has always been his iron lungs and non stop work rate. So yes, it does need to be factored in to how well he played (and he didn't play all that well) since it's a necessary trait for ANY player in the...

[quote]I don't buy that someone else couldn't do his job.[/quote] Mix possibly could have done the attacking part of Bradley's job better overall than Bradley did, but no one seriously believes Mix could have done the two-way work Bradley did. We don't have a plethora of gifted central attacking...

I honestly don't know why anyone is responding to Kashonly on this. [quote]I'd give him a C for the tournament and I think that's where most of our players fell. [/quote] In other words, his play in the World Cup was disappointing. Combination of too-high expectations, him really not playing g...

re: Michael Bradley's performance versus Germany compared to France's midfielders - uway
[quote]I would say he's certainly the most important (outfield) player. [/quote] Which is why it matters that he was not nearly at his best in the World Cup. Hating on him is an overreaction to his play, but y'all are overcompensating by pretending he didn't struggle a bit and that it didn't h...
