    Absolutely not.

    Who else is hyped for a nailbiting 2-1 win over Guyana tonight?

    Zardes
    Boyd-Pulisic-Arriola
    Bradley-McKennie
    Ream-Long-Zimmerman-Lima
    Steffen

    Bradley as the captain.

    God, what a depressing lineup.
  • mollauttmollautt Wealthy Alum
    =>No Altidore.

    26th min and have not had a shot on goal yet. Embarrassing
  • mollauttmollautt Wealthy Alum
    =>NEVERMIND. We're awesome.
  • mollauttmollautt Wealthy Alum
    =>Zardes couldn't score in a morgue full of dead hookers.

    4-0 against a team of primarily 4th (and 5th) league players. Should have been 40-0. I think Pulisic makes more than the entire team, coaches and staff included.

    Agreed...a depressing lineup. Would have loved to see Holmes and Adams our there. Boyd and Lima looked good. I still don’t understand why Wil Trapp is in a USMNT uniform.

    How were the goal celebrations?

    I know he's young, but what do you think goes through Pulisic's mind when he has to take direction from a guy like Bradley?   The kid is so much better than anyone on that field last night.

    Paul Ariola was the best player for me last night for the USMNT. Boyd/ Pulisic looked good as well.

     Besides that not much to write home about for the USMNT. 

    I know Berhalter plays a different style and it takes a while to get used to, but the last couple of games have been a rough go. Still need to find a consistent finisher. For me I  don't think zardes should start ever. I would rather see him throw out bobby wood or even Soto from the U-20s over him. For all his speed he lacks the ability to come find the ball imo. He also has an awful first touch

    Boyd looked good. Pulisic looked good. Tired of Bradley being so damn conservative. Just looks like the team doesn't care at all. Wish Weah wouldn't have played in U20 and was up for this, along with Sargent who didn't play as coach blocked him assuming he would be on this roster...

    If only we'd had a gap of 20 months to acclimate the players to a new coach's system.

    I think he looked up to the 8-year-ago Bradley, so he probably doesn’t have too much of an issue. I do wonder that he thinks about Greggy though.

    The U-20s have some really talented player that hopefully will be integrated into the senior team: Soto, Weah, Mendez, Gloster, Llanez, Ledezma, and Dest.
  • QuinoaburgerQuinoaburger Wealthy Alum
    That game was like when Michigan beat App State 52-14 in 2014.

    =>Good things happen when the team plays with some fire.

    I was planning on heading down to Philly for the quarterfinal match, but I have no interest in seeing us beat up on Caribbean powerhouse Curacao.

    I was planning on heading down to Philly for the quarterfinal match, but I have no interest in seeing us beat up on Caribbean powerhouse Curacao.

    I’d love to see a win. The last two I went to we have lost. That 6-0 thrashing against T&T would have been awesome!

    =>When you are the best, all lower matches naturally seem pedestrian.

    Curacao is a nation of 160k. On those, I would guess 20k would be males of an age where could play for the national team. That would less people than Yager Stadium capacity. Relatively small pool.

    Huh? Who is the best? If you are saying the US, that's not true. We have been shitty for years. I get what you are saying, but we've lost to many CONCACAF teams with tiny populations...seeing a win is fun, goals are fun...6-0 would have been a blast especially after these last few years

    =>USA and Mexico are still 1A and 1B in the minds of everyone. Anything but a USA-Mexico final is always a surprise.

    There hasn't been a US-Mexico final since the game in 2011 that got Bob Bradley fired.

    => and it was a surprise each time it didn't happen. Note there has not been a final without either Mexico or United States oh, I think ever right?

    Mexico beat Haiti in extra time last night, crazy game. The US is up 2-0 with 25 mins left against Jamaica for a spot in the finals that take place Sunday night in chicago.
