|14 min ago||Best finish of the tournament||
|32 min 45 sec ago||Apparently in women's soccer||
You can get medical attention on the field while play is going on...
|55 min 40 sec ago||They are tougher than their men||
On another note the turf looks very thin and bouncy
|1 hour 13 min ago||Still can't believe the AR let that first PK stand||
Even a high school referee linesman would have been able to make that call correctly
|1 hour 17 min ago||Don't see either offense scoring on USA||
Can't see us not scoring at least two
|1 hour 22 min ago||Get men referees||
Call me a pig but this is a mockery of the game
|1 hour 23 min ago||Really?||
This is a joke
|1 hour 31 min ago||Dumb push||
|1 hour 41 min ago||Found it||
Should have stuck with 2007 MSU but I'm in now
|1 hour 46 min ago||What channel?when?||
Northwestern 48 MSU 41 from 2007 on big ten network now.
|7 hours 1 min ago||It's always interesting to see relative player ratings||
Here's my unrequested analysis:
I think the two best all around players are Rapinoe and Johnston and it is not even close. A
Lloyd would win my bronze medal as she has had bouts of greatness but also fits of really questionable play. These top three have field vision and toughness on the ball that is unrivaled. A-
Solo could be up there but hasn't been really tested much after the Australia game. Showed good leadership yesterday. Made some technical errors but didn't pay for it. A-
The other one who has impressed me has been Brian and not just yesterday. She and Johnston are future captains. A-
Yesterday, I think the others with the exception of Morgan and the subs, were solid B/ B+. They made a good Germany team look bad for most of the game. Many of these role players seem to be improving each game after coming in looking fundamentally weak.
Morgan: I know I am not in the majority, and yes I think she is very cute, but her play borders on unacceptable for the USA's top striker. When she is healthy, she is a wonderful player, but her play almost cost us in the first half yesterday. LeRoux or ROdriguez in there would have resulted in at least one goal. A very fortunate lack of red card and blown PK helped smoothover this coaching mistake IMO. C
Ellis: Yesterday was the I told you so formation game. Before it was the I told you so Wambach has no business playing more than 15 minutes game. She may win this in spite of herself. C -

USA have been clearly the better team in all aspects and controlled much more of the game.
|20 hours 58 min ago||Abby was good playing keep away at the end||
The second goal was pretty and had nothing to do with either forward though. Would like to see Abby have one last golden moment and then retire from national team play.
|21 hours 7 min ago||Morgan's left was woeful today too||
One clear breakaway and two clear opportunities from her left all wasted by really poor efforts never looking up, shooting when she should have passed, and simply choking on a beautiful pass that resulted in a breakaway.
|23 hours 31 min ago||Predictions are for gypsies lol||
I just like to see the rules called correctly for the sports sake.
|23 hours 45 min ago||I'm on some reffing blogs now||
One had a vine with a better angle and it was a very close call but if you had a gun to my head I would say it was just outline.
|23 hours 55 min ago||Anyone see a good replay angle of Morgan's pk foul||
Still can't tell
|1 day 4 min ago||Never for a goal per se||
Unless there was some unusual delay
|1 day 8 min ago||That's it!||
|1 day 12 min ago||Scoreless streak over 500 minutes||
Unbelievable at any level
|1 day 15 min ago||Germany looks like a team of Wabachs||
Stumbling rumbling and bumbling
|1 day 17 min ago||Morgan watch Lloyd||
That is how you do it
|1 day 18 min ago||Yeah!!!||
|1 day 21 min ago||Going completely defensive||
With ZERO offensive ability now
|1 day 23 min ago||What?!||
Wtf are doing in A 4-4-2
|1 day 26 min ago||Is Germany better?||
They don't deserve a win ( so far)
|1 day 30 min ago||Line is part of the area it defines||
Would be nice to show replay with a good angle.
|1 day 34 min ago||Boom||
|1 day 35 min ago||That's how you use speed!||
|1 day 36 min ago||Shoot or pass||
