    That goal was beautiful. Great play from Ching to Donovan.

    Altidore was the one that scored.

    Got the very important 2nd goal.

    Jozy should probably have 3.

    Last one was ugly. What was the Goalie trying to do? Rolled right through his stomach really.

    That game should have been at least 6-0 the USA can't finish part of the reason they will never win the World Cup or Olympic Gold

    Whoa whoa whoa...are we forgetting the Cubs :wink:
     
  14. I watched the first half then switched to Lost but their finishing was killing me. They were everywhere around the goal but couldn't get it done. Hopefully guys like Adu and Jozy (despite the one right before half) can change that in the future.

    T & T was unskilled and unorganized in the half that I watched. You really don't learn anything from a game like this. Can anyone else remember when Dwight Yorke was with Man U? Like 15 years ago, he's not even in the game. The Trini team has players from small clubs in rural Wales.

    Demarcus Beasley was comfortable in defense, but its not like anyone was testing him. Its good to see Altidore get some PT after sitting on the bench nearly all season in the Spanish Segunda Division.

    I doubt it. We just don't have the number of quality players as the best teams in the world to advance. We've had the occasional great goalie like Brad Friedel who have made a huge difference, but fordward/midfield attacking has always been an issue.

    The USA has good goalkeeper's because its the position with the least "football skill", the difference they provide is overstated. Plenty more keepers from MLS think they can make it in Europe, but can't get the work permits or don't want to go live in a place like Portugal.
