Why is this happening to us? Feel free to vent here and lets try to keep it all in one spot
Official Bornstein hate thread
What's been happening? I just turned it on. Did he get a yellow already or something?
Bornstein is one of the best soccer players in this country. Probably, infinitely better at his craft than you are at yours.
You write on a message board about your hate of someone you don't even know.
You are truly a sad individual. I hope Bornstein scores a hat trick today just to spite you.
I read MGoBlog like a champion! You hear me? A CHAMPION!
Can we start an official 60blue hate thread too?
Looks like 60blue is alone on this thread. Anyone have the capabilities of deleting it?
Forgive my (US) soccer ignorance. Is Bornstein playing because he's the best the US have at left back?
He's playing because Onyewu was dropped and Bocanegra was moved to central defense.
So, Bornstein is considered the second best left back in American soccer. What a terrible position he's raised himself to.
60blue touches himself at night.
I was told that me touching myself at night was the reason the dinosaurs died out :(
boycott playing against Jews and thus put Bornstein and Feilhaber in hoping for a forfeit.
I thought this was a new Hate Justin Boren thread...nothing to see here, move on.
Bornstein played well today. He got turned pretty early in the game, but was pretty decent for the rest. In the past there were reasons to hate on Bornstein, but he played well considering this was his first WC.
This was one of Bornstein's better games. When the bad Bornstein is there, it's obvious -- he spends at least half the game getting completely torched repeatedly and is then (hopefully) mercifully subbed out. The torching wasn't happening that often. With as hard as the US was pushing forward, Algeria really didn't have a ton of great chances all things considered.
Saved by the crossbar on our usual "give up a goal in the opening 15 minutes" deal though. Demerit nearly killed us there, but was great after that.
I have never understood Bradley's obsession with this guy and Ricardo Clark. But I'll give Borenstein credit for playing well today. We're probably also better off without the over-rated and out of form Gooch on the field. Bocanegra played very well in the middle. He's smarter with respect to positioning, etc. than Gooch, and right now is more mobile and stronger in the air, due to Gooch injury recovery.
It'll be interesting to see who starts in the backfield against Ghana. I'm gonna go Cherundolo, DeMerit, Bocanegra, Spector- Bradley hasn't been afraid to play everyone and DeMerit looked much better with Boca there today. Edu, Bradley and Feilhaber also played their best games today. Of course, it was Algeria...
