    Ouch, pretty brutal display the first 65 minutes. Playing a 4-4-2 has been the team's bread and butter since the confederation cup run a few years ago...but damn, they just don't have the talent to consistently break down teams that bunker...nor do they have someone who can bomb it with any accuracy from distance. Trying to be reasonable and just chalk this one up as a bad day at the office for the entire team

    The USMNT is playing unispired, lazy soccer and got beat because of it. They'll probably find a way to bet Guadeloupe and advance, but no way they go far in this tournament.

    As I've said earlier, I believe the team is starting to tune BBradley out. Which happens a lot worldwide after a WC, which made it so surprising that he was actually rehired.

It would have been nice if he beat his man more when he was 1 V 1 but overall a good game for him.
    awful may be to strong of word, I guess mediocre is a bit better, Jozy hasn't impressed me and I guess I'm a bit negative towards him because of his general body of work lately has been bad and I think him not playing on a regular basis has hurt his development.

What more can you ask for? Just because goals don't come from a corner doesn't mean the delivery was bad. As a Man United fan I am familiar with poor corners and Donovan's last night were far from poor.
    Donovan was a lot better on Saturday, then he was the first game so yeah he sucked on corners the first game, he just seems off, not sure why though.

    after watching the game again, I'll have to agree with this assesment, I guess I'm a bit hard on Landon because he is always there when he's needed and when you have high expectations, everything below that is unacceptable.

    after the Panama game, I hope we see Gooch and Lichaj, even though Gooch hasn't been the same since his injury I hope he can instill some confidence to the backline.

    I do hope Wondolowski gets a bit more time, even though he hasn't showed much and missed that sitter against Panama, I hope he doesn't turn into Twellmen Version 2, solid in league and a bit lost on the NT

    1-0 against this Guadelupe side is a disgrace. This should have been 6 or 7 nil, but epic blown finishes cost the USMNT dearly. Anyway who thinks this team's performances of late will get them past even Jamaica? Sheesh, this is terrible.

    Guatemala had all but Ruiz playing defense. Mexico missed some easy goals too.
