We had an in-game thread last week and we won.
Thought someone was going to start it, so I'll go ahead and give it a shot and hopefully we can turn our fortunes around.
one leg hopping for the save. That was legit.
I really know nothing about soccer. Saying that first, my perception is that the US team looks ok. One HUGE mess up, other than that, they have looked like the better team.
If I'm wrong, sorry, I'm at least trying to understand what makes this game so popular.
No you're correct. US looks like the better team right now, but soccer can be cruel.
Oh man oh man, do we need two goals here.
(it probably shouldn't but the image below cracks me up)
Please let this work.
But in reverse.
...but with this formation and lineup, I think Jones and Johnson really have to push up and be a factor offensively. Obviously that leaves massive holes on the back end, but that's where Bedoya and Zusi have to cover for them if they move foward.
ahead of Dempsey. kthnx
We've given that guy his fair share of forearms...hopefully that continues in the 2nd half.
about soccer as i do about mandarin chinese. can someone tell me what espn's tag line of a 'back line blunder' meant re: the bad guys getting their goal?
and no matter the sport, i do know u-s-a! u-s-a!
goal scorer's hands [feet].
If Cameron is hurt...it's Gonzo that replaces him.
Oh my fukccccc
I want to throw up.
That was absolutely painful to watch.
Plenty of time left, but just painful.
That was an absolute sitter! Just a sign of Portugals luck right now. US acquitting themselves well but that may be the chance of the game.
Gives the ball away again at midfield...
We need a finisher.
Did anyone else see the Washington State flag there?
Where did that come from.
I said Jones and Johnson...what a goal.
He bent it like Beckham.
That was one of the best shots anyone will ever see
What a fucking beauty
What a shot!!!!!!!!!
Gotta settle down...settle back in.
Did anyone else watching ESPN coverage get a nice chuckle out of the dude dressed up as Teddy Roosevelt? I could see him cheering quite uproariously there too, from what I understand about the man.
Also, we need another one like that - left the goalie paralyzed, it seemed. Very beautiful goal indeed.
AAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!!! What a goal!!!!!
going to be a long 20 min
I know that's kind of "unAmerican" but Dempsey hasn't done much since the first 15 minutes.
Who are your other subs? Do we trust Yedlin? We've got Zusi and Bedoya on so we can't sub there...this is interested.
Taylor starts talking about him...he looked good in the qualifiers
Didn't think about a defender for a midfielder...and with his pace...we don't lose much.
I hear the Denard Robinson "LOOK AT THAT SPEED!"
Besler is hurt.
Telling Brooks to slow down...let them rest and recover.
And now they own possession, this is awful.
Pretty shit there to go up a goal....very nice!
