USA ties it up!
I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
USA ties it up!
Robbie Rogers?! WTF are you kidding me???
GOOOOALLLLLL Robbie Rogers... 1-1
Wow a very unlikely player, but I'll take it.
Im liking tha adjustments that we have made lately alot more agressive attacking
Shea's looked great since coming in.
Agreed, really has a way of finding the ball and making great runs. Also I really like the size he brings to the attacking midfield.
Why the f- can't they put names on the back of their jerseys? They want people to support the US team but this novice can't figure out who is who . . .
Thanks for the response. It makes sense, but its still annoying.
that could have been a penalty...
That was a fucking penalty
That one got me on my feet... They're really putting some pressure un now
God im loving what Brek Shea has brought today.
how was that not a red card?!
That us a fucking straight red. What a bunch of shit.
For the life of me, I don't know how someone can be THROWN DOWN and no Red is given. I dno't get it. I don't get it man
THAT IS FUCKING BULLSHIT RED ALL THE WAY.
How is that not a red!!!!???
I think he is actually trying to channel his inner Fernando Torres with that hair. He even has arm tats like Torres.
I should have known Torres would turn out to be kind of a pussy when I learned that he had tattoos on his arms in Tolkien Elvish script. I hope Shea's are unrelated to any fantasy-based languages.
Torres = The Spanish Shevchenko
The above site was fantastic back when its sole content for months was: "NO."
Of course, unlike Shevchenko Torres was a holy terror for three years in the EPL. But he certainly fit the bill now.
UNBELIEVABLE!!! TERRIBLE, this is one of the worst officiated games I've seen in a long time.
UUUgggh. Can't believe they didn't throw him away for that. Ref sux.
THAT SHOULD BE RED!
are the worst. The absolute worst.
Officials have always hated the US and never given them any calls
that is exhibit z of why Ricardo Clark should not be playing
shocking revelation!!!:: Ricardo Clark sucks!
What the hell happened at the 70' mark? Someone hit the 'on' switch...
Putting players in better positions. Kyle Beckerman actually turned up the energy towards the end and Brek Shea showed promise.
GG, nice to see that US tied it
Got some fight in this club
I'd much rather have someone shoot directly at the goalie than miss the net wide. And by wide, I mean 32 yards wide.
Aguedelo was great as well. Both were in the center of every dangerous US move.
yeah he and Shea could be very nice pieces for us in 2014
...and the draw is a positive result for the Yanks. A very good second half for the USA.
Finally demonstrated an ability to connect the midfield and the forwards.
Donovan-->"I don't think the ref was quite up to speed."--HAHA!
Is clearly in good hands with klinsmann
Glad we at least made second half adjustments, something that seems like it never happened under Bradley.
Also, Shea is a baller. Hopefully we see a lot more of him in the future. I don't know what people see in Altidore, I'd rather have Shea out there than him.
Anyone know why Freddie Adu wasn't on the roster tonight?
EDIT: Robbie Rogers is a baller too and hopefully we see more of him. Not only did he finish on that great set-up from Shea, but, he made that great run towards the end that the Mexican player should've got red carded for.
...because he hasn't been training with a club team. That doesn't lend itself well to successfully competing for a slot.
Here's hoping the deal is made to get him back to MLS (Chivas USA DP is the current thought) so that he gets regular playing time. Training and playing at the Home Depot Center certainly won't hurt his chances with the USMNT going forward.
...this ends Ricardo Clark's tenure with the team.
It is so great to be able to complain about officiating instead of Bob Bradley after a game.
In my opinion, going forward Klinsmann needs to go to a 4-1-3-1-1 for the games that he wants to be attacking, which based on his history is every game. The back four is TBD and this is just my opinion on one possible group, and the holding mid can be anyone of Edu/Bradley/Beckerman, then you go Dempsey-Torres-Shea across the mid, Agudelo up top and Donovan sitting just behind in the #10 position, giving him the freedom to roam and make all the plays he is capable of.
When Holden get back in form he has to be on the field somewhere.
Like what you have in the 11, but I still think Holden and Bradley will be there also, in some way.
Swap Bradley for Torres and I am with you... Torres to sub for Bradley later in the game when he has more time on the ball. When Holden is healthy again, slide him in for Bradley.
Lichaj for Castillo seems like a NO BRAINER as Castillo was atrocious last night.
Otherwise, this proposed lineup is 100% what I was hoping for and was shouting at my TV to see when Donovan and Torres were on the wings with Buddle alone up top; let's hope that is the last time we see that, even when Altidore is back in September.
Also, did anyone find a link to Mike Bradley's thoughts on playing for the coach that replaced his dad? His scowl last night was no joke, although he always seems to be scowling (which I like in general)...
