Miguel Herrera, by himself, made El Tri worth rooting for. His hilarious actions on the sidelines and his great shows of expression were classic. The lad is emotional and a great tactician that helped turn around Mexico's misfortunes

Diving happens all the time in the NBA, and people accept it, but when it happens in soccer it's apparently the worst thing ever.

But when was Sparty playing today?
Seriously tough break for Mexico. They had it and lost it because of that penalty. And it wasn't even contact too. As blatant a dive as can be.

Why did the Spurs get booed?
And Silver is better than Stern. Stern just went out there and got booed heavily, and for good reason. "I can't hear you." Shut up and run the draft

I remember when people said CONCACAF sucked and that all the US wins in the Gold Cup meant nothing.
* US keeps dominating CONCACAF*
"It's against nobodies. Juergen sucks. He hasn't played anyone."

Does this mean you will actually root for America now instead of Canada or Ireland or whatever team fits your mood?

I have been working since 5 am today. Just for this game. I am amped up on diet coke and adrenaline.
I will listen to first half on radio. Second on TV during lunch.
It isbmpossivlr to work today. Can this game just come already
Also a few thoughts. We have played everyone close so far. Why should Germany be different? 1-1.we advance.

Lot of criticism about Bradley and the turnovers.
It was a real shame that the game was tied, I was out at a huge public setting for the game, they were showing it on a big screen outdoors. The first and second US goals, the place absolutely erupted. And then dead silence in the 95th.
Regardless, seeing a game outdoors if it is available in your area is a great way to take in the game.
- Howard played exceptionally well except for the first and second goal. Deflected a lot of shots
- Bradley turned the ball over a lot and I was pissed when he tried to hit that shot and it got deflected. That was a goal right there.
- US started off poorly but had grit and heart to come back and tie, and later take the lead. It's just a damn shame that they had to give up the tie and send this team into a huge question mark going into Thursday. This is why they call it the Group of Death. It will honestly come down to the last day.
Watching the game on a workday is highly complicated, especially when your place of employment forbids "non-work related" use of computers. I will do my best to follow the game during lunch breaks as well as ESPN radio app. Let's hope the lads can get it done Thursday.
I think we tie Germany and advance with 5 points.

Man that place I was at, we were all watching in a big gathering outdoors and when that 2nd goal was scored that place went MAD
So much chanting and USA it was unbelievable and made me proud
Shame we tied it. The game on Thursday is very important now. Unfortunately it occurs whilst many of us have to work

|2 weeks 5 days ago||My exact thoughts. We have a||
My exact thoughts. We have a lot on the line Sunday, if we lose or tie Portugal that game becomes critical. And it's unlikely that the US would beat Germany. It would really show you what it is like to be in the Group of Death...
Or the US could just win Sunday and relax instead of having to be drawn into a pressure-filled situation I'm not sure they could win.
Sunday's result is very important and the US must win it, no excuses
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I believe that we will win||
I believe that we will win Sunday. We know what is on the line. Plus eliminating that smug jerk Cristiano Ronaldo would be sweet. Yes, I know he is great towards underpriviledged, but I don't like the diving, flopping, and something about him just screams douche

Although England lost they have a slim chance...Costa Rica beating Italy is no guarantee. Italy is damn good. A tie maybe...then England is out lol

Like Spain it would be hilarious if England did not advance out of group play
I am tired of the English media pimping the English national team like they are the best team ever. All the tabloids do is wax poetic about how GREAT England is in soccer, they're not that good

Poor Rooney. Poor England.

It's a total shock. Spain returned 16 players from their championship team. Casillas was supposed to be elite. Instead they just laid down and gave ZERO effort through two games. Pathetic.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||And Del Bosque is accepting,||
And Del Bosque is accepting, I watched it last game. All they talked about last game, it drove me crazy. "Well, we got a couple of shots." YOU'RE LOSING BY FOUR GOALS.
Spain and Del Bosque have become completely accepting of this garbage. "Oh, we'll go out there tomorrow." They have not scored more than 2 goals in a week! You have to go back to the 50's, the black hole of Spanish football. This team has reached a low point that is unbelievable!
And the thing that we talked about and raved about Vicente Del Bosque is that he was not accepting of this gawbage. He has become accepting! Last game, he wasn't even angry after the game! And did you see Costa miss that shot? If I saw that in a little league game I'd be upseht!
This is Spanish World Cup soccer? You're actually paying to watch this? The eight people that were there today, give them their money back! You've got to be kidding me! If I were the manager I'd jump off the roof, if that was my team!
You forget one thing! They just got lost two games by a total of 7-2! They didn't lose to Brazil! They didn't lose to Germany!
"Well, we're in these games." He's starting to sound like Kotitte!
Listen, we gave them credit when they deserved it this year, but I have never seen a team die like this team. They have guys on this team now who don't know what they're supposed to do on the field! They're getting beat by 4 goals!
I'm not watching anymore, because I get so mad, I can't take it.
And the one thing that we said about Vicente Del Bosque, and he said about himself is "We are not accepting of an attitude that is losing, of mediocrity, of mistakes." And now he has been beaten down to the point where he is completely accepting of their garbage. He was last game, he was today, and that means total death for his team. I don't need to ask Vicente any more if this team has quit on him. I know it has.
