re: United States of F#ck Yeah v. Salvaged Door | Gold Cup QuarterFinals | 8pm CT (FS1) - thenry712
This tournament reeks of 2009 Gold Cup where we got stomped by Mexico 5-0 in the final using a bunch of random MLS players like Davy Arnaud and Santino Quaranta. To be fair, we did first feature Stu Holden in the that tournament....

[quote]Morrow has been so ridiculously lost on long balls all throughout this half. [/quote] I've watched Morrow several times in MLS. Never once did I think, "Hey this guy could be a useful national team players." I think that about several Americans in MLS....

[quote]Goalkeepers Tim Howard and Jesse Gonzalez, midfielders Michael Bradley and Darlington Nagbe and forwards Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey join the roster.

It's a win with an experimental side. I'm not upset about it. I didn't like what I saw from Roldan. He looked lost at times in the formation. McCarty and Acosta have to start in midfield, or else we'll be overrun by a good team. ...

re: Potential World Cup Seeded Teams - thenry712
Friendly wins don't count for much in FIFA rankings. In fact, one of the flaws in the FIFA rankings is that if a nation plays less friendlies, its ranking will be bolstered. Beating a middling country like Slovenia and beating the crap out of teams like Andorra in qualifiers count more towards your ...

I didn't rate Beckerman's performance in the World Cup as highly as others, but that's mainly because our formation compensated for Beckerman's lack of athleticism and rather uncreative passes. It forced Bradley to cover for both Beckerman's deficiencies and Jones' tactical indiscipline. Bradley cov...

[quote]Dwyer, Acosta, Rowe, and McCarty look great . [/quote] McCarty might be a decent option off the bench in the second half of a World Cup game, if only to shore up the middle of the field and retain possession if winning....

Club form has never been kind to Jozy aside from two decent seasons in the defenseless Dutch league. His passing has been superb for the national team of late, thanks to playing with Giovinco in Toronto. He's an ideal target man for a team that still needs to employ that type of center forward. ...

[quote]Gyan must have money on the game[/quote] Gyan is one African player who does not need money. He's been making like $20 million a year playing in the UAE this decade.
