    Witsel has been tracked by numerous Premiership teams. He got an 11 game ban for that tackle.

    I am glad something is being done about this by FIFA, although Chelsea are hardly the first team to do this.

    Edit: United being another team who do this often, and now they are in some potential hot water.

    Anyone have any theories on why exactly Jozy's second goal didn't count? Wasn't offsides, Dempsey got the pass to him clean...

    I swear man, we've been on the receiving end of some horrible officiating in this qualifying round.

    I know Dempsey has been one of the U.S.'s best players the past few years and he normally plays very well for Fulham but he has been very unimpressive lately (at least in international play). I think starting Holden over him for the remaining qualifiers would benefit the team. Dude has been money everytime hes put on the U.S. jersey and his service, crossing, speed and distance shooting are all better then Dempsey

    The race for the first 3 spots is extremely tight so obviously goal differential is huge...that retarded call could come back to haunt them

    No kidding. Would have bit us sooner, but Howard made that tremendous save late there.

    I swear, I mean, I know flow of the game and all that, and we got a call against Brazil there in the Confederations Cup final, but I'm so tired of seeing us get straight ****ed by horrible calls. That game against Honduras in Chicago was ridiculous too.

    Biggest thing, I'm just sick of all the dives and soft play in general from our qualifying group. Watching Newcastle play in Championship the last few games then watching last night's flop fest was just stomach turning. I mean seriously, is there a softer group in World Cup Qualifying? Christ, a stiff breeze sends most of these players flying.

    Cid,
    did you see the first half of the CR - Mexico game? It was astounding. Whistle on every play. Stoppage every 30 seconds. Horrendous.

    Dempsey often looks like he's loafing, but match tracks always put him at the top of the distance run charts. Wouldn't mind seeing him pushed up top late wednesday, to get holden more time.
