Anyone going to the US MNT match tonight in CT?
« on: May 25, 2010, 04:20:49 PM »
My son and future daughter in law have invited me up for the match. Really excited to see Clint play live again as it's been many years since the last time I saw him here on the east coast. Will be good to see Carlos again too as I've missed seeing him in the FFC team. Great man, good player. Only down side is that Cech will probably be in goal for the Czech Republic. Funny how the dark side follows you where ever you go.

I'm jealous you get to go and I don't. I am on the wrong coast to go tonight. I don't think you will be seeing Clint play tonight. That is just a hunch I have. I think you will see more of the fringe players play to see who makes the team. For your sake, I hope I am wrong and Clint does play. I would like to see our first team run out and start to mesh with each other.

Nope. Gonna watch it on DVR when I get back from choir practice tonight. I'll get to fast-forward through Harkes at pregame and half-time anyhow.

Well Tom you were right. Clint, Carlos, Landon and most of the regular starters didn't even dress tonight. EJ did start and was some what invisible. I would hate to be the coach that had to pick through that group. No one really shined and in truth I didn't see any real talent showing on the night. The biggest shame is I've seen a few players recently that looked much better but we all know that it takes some extra luck to be given a chance to play for your country. Same goes for a few of our FFC lads. I still think that they would show better than some of the picks that were made in the end but in a few weeks we'll all know whether they got it right or not.

I, for one, am glad that I did not go, The telly was painful enough.

Two goods things though, Eddie Johnson & Heath Pierce will NOT be going to SA. Heath will back on the bench in Dallas and EJ will take over the car park at Home Depot Center.

Mr Jim,

Parking actually needs a certain degree of skill so not sure that he will last long at the Home Depot Center.

You do know Eddie's momma would be upset by that.

It all comes downes to his debut. He pops in with a hat trick and a nation starved for a striker since McGod got old was agast. Too bad that was the end of it. I will say that if Charlie hadn't been hurt it would have been wonderful to see him blow by the chelscum guy and the manure guy for a brace in a 2 nil US win. Well, I can dream can't I?

Strike me down but I fear this lot we are sending to SA are three and out. Perhaps we can send Kobi and he can bag a few three pointers to keep us in the matches.

Eddie looked lost and clueless on the pitch last night!

He always looks like that. Anyone else going to Philly this weekend? I'm heading down Saturday morning.

You can't be serious, besides the defense, who may surprise us ( they did shut down a favorite in Spain last yr) the mid is solid, and the strikers have massive potential. On top of that we are playing Algeria and Slovenia ( not exactly the 06 group of death Italy, Ghana, and Czech)  should be atleast 6 pts ,so to say  we're going 3 and out makes you sound a bit depressing and reminds me of the FFC fans who didnt want to play in the Europa League

A strong tounge lashing from James the American there  :dft008:

I think the team is strong. Herculez Gomez will have a positive affect at some point in the tournament.... and I strongly believe that this tournament will be at least 5 games for us.

I find it quite hard to believe that anyone would not have us favored to go through the group stage, and not heavy favorites against Slovenia and Algeria.

Also, I believe this is the deepest and strongest team weve ever sent to the world cup in our history. There are no eddie popes, no claudio reynas, no mastroenis, no conveys, no eddie lewiss in this roster. We have upgraded in every one of those positions, and the players that are still on the roster from 2006 have all become much better players like clint, donovan, howard, and boca.

Tom,

Don't forget that outside of Argentina and Maradona you possibly have the stupidest head coach in the tournament.

Thats halarious Finn. Surely Domenech is more dense than our Mr Bradley.... but Bradley could quite possibly be in the top 5 idiot coaches in this tournament.... only time will tell how thick he really is!

You would have to agree that the US coaching staff is getting less and less daft as each cycle goes by though.


Bradley 1 star donkey
Arena 15 star donkey
Sampson 7 star donkey
Bora 3 Star donkey


who will be next.........

Why would you say that finnster? I wouldn't go that far. He isn't one of the best but he isn't the worst either. I would say that he is ok.

The US team might well get thru, but unless they can overcome England in the opener, then they are likely only looking at 2nd place, and group D has Germany, Australia, Serbia and Ghana, with the former two as likely candidates, and Germany as #1, meaning that's who the US team will meet in the next round. Are they good enough to beat Germany is the question we should look at.

He's just trying out a new club, Tom. The one he's been using to bash Eddie Johnson for two years is a little ragged.
