March 5th: Ukraine vs USA
Okay, I don't go into the soccer thread much, but I have to ask: Is this game really going to be played?
Between this and Dempsey's suckitude and Altidore's toils in Sunderland it's been a #### week for the USMNT
Also Stuart Holden tried once again to play in a game and once again seems to have a career-ending injury.

(*) Or maybe not. I haven't gone through the exercise, but I don't think it would be that difficult to come up with 15 EPL strikers I'd rather have than Jozy.
Yea, between him and Davies, the UMSNT has lost what were potentially really good players. Not world class, but certainly guys that could have played at a continental level in Europe.
I thought Vidic was the bester player in the PL a couple of years ago, but he seems a shell of his former self these days.
has USMNT member ever played in a Champions Lg final or semi final?
Who is the best player produced by the US "system." ? I'd consider Rossi part of the US system. Born and raised in the US through 12
I think that John O'Brien also made it to the quarters with Ajax in 2002-03.

These Americans in Champions League semi-finals posts remind me that I'm sorry that I mostly missed the era when great teams from outside of Spain/England/Italy/Germany could actually make a run at, or even win, the Champions League. With PSG (and maybe eventually Monaco) being the exception, we're not really likely to see a Dutch or Portuguese or even French team there anytime soon.
Although Beasley went one further and Kirovski was a squad player for a champion team, JOB for Ajax was probably the nexus of American in a key role on a very good team. That Ajax team was excellent, and probably would have won the thing in a year or two's time had they been able to keep everybody (and everybody fit, in the case of poor JOB), and JOB was a key player on that team when he was fit.
The final WC friendlies were announced. Azerbaijan? Turkey and Nigeria are both solid challenges, though. The game against Turkey is in New Jersey so I may have to think about that one. I wonder if the building I work in has tickets available. Hmmm...
I'm surprised the penalty was given - most refs will give the benefit of the doubt to the defenders but that's probably a foul in the middle of the pitch.
I'd say Sherwood has about a 20% chance of remaining manager in August
I'm pretty sure Sunderland just threw their FA Cup QF against Hull.
