Oh and Dempsey has a broken nose, he can fall down and hold his face as much as he damn well pleases. (But having a true forward in there to allow Clint to show his true talents at mid would be nice for sure)
Our top talent is so young that the stars of team USA in the next WC likely are not starting right now. I cannot wait to see this team develop more and become a top team in the world.

You are correct, this will be a uphill battle. But to win, you first have to believe that you will.

Anyone with me rooting for Chile 2morrow? The tears would be so delicious if they won.

So what do you think of the possible new ManU jersey?

I say all of this for two reasons. First it keeps homers grounded (I hope), and second it shows how much a US win would mean on the world stage. If I sound like a pessimest, well, you don't really know international 'soccer', the USMNT aren't as good as at least 14 of the other 16 teams that qualified. That game against the Germans proved it. We are the world cup Browns at this point, we might pull a few things out of our ass, but we are no Peyton Manning led Broncos.

Whatever bro. All I want is for the US to answer the bell. Come out and compete for the entire game. Do it with passion, aggressiveness and teamwork. They do that and I will be proud of whatever the score is.

If they end up stripping Qatar and giving 2022 to the States...we'll almost certainly be looking at something never before seen: a USMNT with expectations to make it deep into the tournament.

I think regardless of if we get the tournament rightfully awarded to us or not.
This WC has started a frenzy that will not be quenched and the expectations for the future will be to win the cup. Not just to compete and play well.
Hell, we just had a bunch of folks being embarrassed to advance on a loss. It will not take long for the US fans to desire being the best in the world.

Brazil is lucky that Chilean shot bounced off the post. Otherwise as Daarke said, they would be out. I almost had a USA feeling when I saw that shot go up.

An MLS goal keeper saves the day for Brazil in the World Cup.

MLS is steadily improving. Hopefully it continues to get better each season and become one of the best in the world.

Hold on, did I really just see that right on ESPN?
Suarez told the panel that he did not deliberately bite his opponent and that he has a bruise on his cheek and pain in the teeth?
Really? Really? b**** say what? Is this dude for real?
