    Re: USMNT vs. Argentina (3/26)

    I'll be watching at a pub here in Phoenix. I'm excited for the match, but bummed about Stu Holden's injury. The guy just can't seem to catch a break. But if the U.S. has a position where they can overcome an injury it is definitely in the midfield. I would like to see Bradley get Ream and Agudelo into the match today to see how they play against a world class side.

    I'd go if it weren't on at the same time as basketball tonight.

    I think we'll see a more veteran side for the game tonight, and a younger squad for the game v Paraguay on Tuesday.

    Yea, I was actually watching the Bolton v Man United match where Holden got destroyed... such a brutal challenge. I feel really bad for him. He seems to have a great attitude about it from following him on Twitter, so I'm sure he'll fight back once again.

    I don't doubt this at all and I'm not necessarily saying that they should start. I still think it would be a good idea though to get a look at both Ream and Agudelo against Argentina as second half subs. I think both could be important members of this summer's Gold Cup squad and some limited minutes against a quality side could be important as both a measuring stick and as incentive.

    Wonder if they'll be wearing their new "red" jerseys today:



    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    I will be watching, Stu Holden always seems to get injured before a big international match. It would be nice to see how he would play with Bradley in the middle. I just hope to see our younger defenders develop before the next WC.

    Re: USMNT vs. Argentina (3/26)

    I'm all about taking it slow with promising young players, but you can't argue the point that the US looked like a completely different team once they subbed Agudelo in the second half. His goal was admittedly pretty fluky, but the US squad as a whole took on a completely different look once he entered the match. And Chandler had something to do with the change as well. Timmy looked like a real threat from the right back position and made things happen in the second half.
