    I'm fairly surprised that Findley made it and not Ching.

    Same here. I'm not the biggest fan of Ching but I thought he played great last night. Slick little passes and back heels that led to a few chances.
    The biggest concern I have with the addition of Findley is that that might mean he is going to start up top with Jozy...which means Dempsey will be on the wing...which means Holden won't start.

    I think Holden could be much more effective then Dempsey on the right flank since he is faster and can track back defensively, plus his crossing/delivery is the best on the team. We'll see in a few weeks i guess...

    Congrats Buddle and Gomez. Feel bad for Ching because he is not bad. Just that those 2 guys have more of a hot hand right now.

    Was that Jose Torres or Xavi that got subbed in today at halftime? Damn that kid is good, he's got to start against England

    100% agree. Which is why I'm sure Bradley will start him on the bench.

    Thought the Torres and Findley substitutions were good. Findley made Turkey complete hold back and watch his speed. And he got most of that room because Torres completely shored up the midfield.

    Speaking of midfield, was the Clark/Feilhaber combo with Bradley awful? Did we have any 1st half possession in midfield other than kick the ball straight upfield and hope someone could win it 1 vs. 3?

    Bornstein....riight.

    Defense - still big concern. But, nice to see Gooch starting to make some of those stretching tackles we're used to.

    Just a few days away...predictions for the England game?

    As much as I want the U.S. team to win I just don't think they can get it done...a draw is the most realistic positive result they can garner.

    I'll say 2-0 England with them scoring a goal in the first half and then another late in the 2nd when the U.S. goes forward to try and even it up. Hopefully I'm wrong...no one thought they had a chance against Spain last summer too.

    IF they can pull off the upset then its going to be fun seeing the media attention afterwards, both here and across the pond.

    Anyone planning on going to any bars/pubs/public viewings to check out the game?

    A win by the Yanks will be having the British media calling for Capello's head immediately. That will not be acceptible to the fleet street crazies in the media and they will have a field day with all the doom and gloom.

    Meanwhile, on this side of the pond, the media will be covering the Lakers/Celitcs game 5 pre-game analysis and maybe on page 3 of the Times would it get a mention. OK, that's overstating it, but the difference in coverage will be huge.
