I think MLS is better than a lot of people give it credit for these days. Besler and Gonzalez were both great, Zusi and Johnson have contributed recently as well. Might be better to give more time to MLS stars than guys struggling at the lower ends of Europe, like Goodson or Parkhurst.
Zusi hasn't done much IMO. Some of the MLS guys have been successful (Besler, Gonzalez), and some have not (Wondowlowski, Brad Davis). Though of course it should be noted, every guy in the game has played in MLS.
Was Omar Gonzalez as good as what I've been reading today?
Besler was the guy I was impressed with. Early on a bunch of guys were scrambling any time they got pressured. Besler and Bradley were the only two who seemed capable of getting a ball in the defensive third and while being pressured make a pass to an actual teammate rather than one of the guys in the other uniforms.
Edu is just straight garbage every time he puts on a USMNT uni. I hear nothing but good things about his club performances but he constantly hesitates in the attack and either kills the counter or gives it away too easily.
He makes Jones look like Xavi.
A 19-year-old North Hollywood man has been sentenced to 2.5 years in prison for aiming a laser pointer at a commercial aircraft — a steep punishment going well beyond the year federal prosecutors were seeking.
“In this case the judge really felt it was serious behavior and he wanted to make sure that people understood it was not a joke,” Los Angeles federal prosecutor Melissa Mills said in a telephone interview Tuesday.
He's a limited player, but there is pretty big drop off after Bradley and Jones and all the options are going to be weak in one way or another.
Yea I'm not really complaining that he was selected, just pointing out what a drop there is from Jones to Edu. To be fair, Edu should have given away a penalty and only a very generous ruling (probably helped by the broadway performance flop from the mexican guy when all he should have done is fell over) saved him.
Univision has replay of Edu's possible penalty from a different angle than ESPN that shows that the non-call was probably legit, Aquino basically kicks the ground and falls over. The Univision announcers even say they don't think it's a penalty.
I think the ref makes a non-call because he thinks Edu poked the ball away, hence the corner kick.
Landon Donovan is back. I completely understand why he took a break, and I just hope he feels properly rested and happy to be back at his soccer. If he is, there's plenty of time before Brazil for him to get back into form and into the US starting XI. My only concern is if he feels like he needs to come back because this will likely be his last World Cup as a starter and is coming back before he's really ready to play again.
Did Lloris get hurt against Spain?
Why the heck would they not have pulled the trigger on that before the long international break?
It's working class, the BNP is strong there too.
Also, Neil Warnock the latest to get the sack from whatever consortium owns Leeds these days.
Mark Clattenberg is reffing the battle between the 2 evils that will not be mentioned.
