I had my DVR set for Telemundo, but then heard they have it in English on Telemundo2- woohoo! Even though we are going to get crushed I am oddly excited.

Fuck

Bocanegra

minute 38, but I'm sure he's going to fuck us, playing like shit.  Fucker

Fucking Bradley too, wtf is he doing, if he tries to cut in front of a pass late and leaves himself completely out of position and out of the play 1 more time I'm going to scream.  Not to mention his horrible fucking passing and positioning to help the defense on a change of possession.

Oh no.  Our first sub is such a bad bad move.  Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck.  Ok it was a double sub, but really, Holden?  Fuck me.  For our best defensive mid?  .....  Not happy

He is a worthless sack and I swear if I keep having to see him w/ the armband and resting on non existent laurels and being guarenteed his starting spot I'm going to puke.  He was fucking awful the entire game in EVERY single phase of the goddamn game.

I don't get the starting lineup, Jozy > Ching every time, for so many reasons that its not even worth listing them.  I also don't get not starting Spector after the Confed Cup, that is just bullshit.  Cherundelo did ok but I would have liked to see Spector again after he did such a terrific job.

I can't believe that Holden pissed me off less then Benny.  Fuck he had an awful game and acted like a cunt during that tussle towards the end.  Also played nervy and made some awful passes.  They bring him in counting on him to provide presence on the ball and help w/ possession and he ends up making some of the worst passes of anyone.  Fantastic.

Not playing Torres in this game, I just can't fathom that.  I mean it really doesn't make dick for sense.  Holden did well but I just can't figure out what Torres has done so that he is just not going to see a minute of playtime anymore.

I feel bad for Landon, he didn't have a great game, but he could have.  His service was very nice on two of the free kick/corners but nobody made anything of it and then he was victimized on the last goal getting caught flat footed hella bad.  It was crazy watching the riot police try to protect him at the end.

Really just fuck Bocanegra, fuck him so much, its one thing if a young kid has a bad game, I can forgive Bradley for playing like shit for 90% of the time but Bocanegra is the vet, the captain, etc. and he was amateur hour the entire match in everything he did.

Big ups to Gooch, he had a terrific game and even looked ok w/ the ball at his feet.  I hope he gets P/T in Italy and continues to improve, I was really pleased with how he commanded things back there.  Besides that, what isn't to love about Charlie Davies, it was a daring and apparently inspired pick to start him by Bradley, I give credit for that but god I love the way that kid plays.

I also like Ricardo Clark a ton, if he continues to improve he will be the key to any run the US makes in the World Cup since a solid defensive minded mid can help cover our weakness in the back.  Holden, fuck I hated Holden but that service was just so perfect and he had some other moments that looked ok.  He's not a starter and I doubt he will be by 2010 but I'm almost ready to see him included in the squad if he can play well in a few more away qualifiers.

Did altidore even touch the ball?


We're not quite there yet.  that second goal was Onyewu's makrk who got the goal. Boca dodged, but most times that ball goes over the bar.

One good strike, one mental lapse. That's all it takes.

Davies is now a solid fixture, compare to people not even knowing who he was back in February.

It's amazing you can see the ball bobble right as he hits it but he still catches it sweet as a peach, that dude must examine the pitch before he plays.

So tired of watching teams get a lead and then never attempt an offensive move again. The Canucks did it constantly last season, and the US did it yesterday. Sorry, but you can't play 80+ minutes entirely in your own end. God that annoys me. First touches were just clownshoes too- can anyone in America settle a ball that travels more than 10 fucking feet?

Refereeing was predictably abysmal and completely one-sided. Mexico should be embarrassed by the conduct of some of their players and fans. If CONCACAF/FIFA had any fucking balls they would ban matches at any stadium people throw that much shit at players. That isn't sport- that animal mob behavior.

It was his mark but it was Bocanegra who provided late nonexistent help for Donovan and should have been trying to get back into the play since the breakdown was on his side.  But he was just standing around like a fucking bitch.  My scapegoat of the match hands down no question, I'm so sick of him being the captain when he can't defend worth a damn because he's not fast enough clever enough or skilled enough, he doesn't overlap on offense, his service is awful, his vision is awful, he doesn't play calm and collected and picks up stupid yellows at the same rate as the kids.

You would think  by now that USMNT would see that shaking up the lineup has good results.  Forcing some competition and not letting anyone feel owed their roster spot is good.  Yet for some reason Bocanegra gets that treatment, along with Dempsey and Donovan who have sort of earned it, while he has done fuckall.

I was bitching about the cards. There was some seriously egregious home-cooking going on there. Fuck it, all I want in a ref is fucking consistency, of which there was none. He was shit.

Bocanegara, ALSO SHIT. That second goal I blame pretty squarely on him. Why is it the central defender and the winger are struggling to catch the guy with the assist when he runs straight through where the back should have been standing? He was lost most of the game, and when Howard got in trouble, it was usually because Boca was off somewhere the fuck else. Is left back even his natural position?

Davies was awesome. The midfield was shit most of the game. Dempsey is almost worthless except for the five seconds or so he shows up every game - I'd rather see Holden starting. There seemed to be no service out of the central midfield. The one thing I think our players need to practice until their toes fall off is being able to RECEIVE A FUCKING PASS. How many balls did we lose possession on in the midfield simply because the ball bounced 20 feet away off a guy's foot?

Gio Dos Santos is a fucking douchefaced cunt that I'd like to see get punched.

blaming the wrong guy on that second Goal. You need to blame Landon Donovan. He got burned on that one pretty bad.

Donovan started believing the hype. Hell, they all did.

This is why US Soccer can't have nice things.

About the refs, now you know why people hate Jack Warner and the fat fuck in New York, his main toady and general shit stain who has  his own floor in manhattan. One Chuck Fucking Blazer. Il Bruce was right about Sunil. He's a micromanager who wants to run the team. Imagine Roger Goodell dealing with this  bunch of fuck heads. US Soccer being prominent opens the door for a total revamp of concacaf and becomes a major pain in FIFA's corrupt ass.

Mexico bullied the confederation to put a lesser ref on. the ref for the game is the one who threw out the mexican coach for kicking a panamanian player. he would not have dealt with the shit that mexico always does because they're a bunch of dirty filthy stinking cheats.

EDIT:Aaron Stollar of the fighting talker podcast and big soccer explains why I was such a moron for thinking the US could change CONCACAF

Yes, he did. Strangely enough, though, the left back is closer to the goal than the left midfielder (Donovan) and is SUPPOSED to be there to backstop the midfielder if he happens to get burned. Bocanegra being pretty much nowhere in the picture is pretty much why that goal got scored. He wasn't marking Sabah in the box and he wasn't applying pressure to the man driving to the endline - so what the fuck was he doing? Standing there with his thumb up his ass, completely confused as to what he should be doing. If he chooses to either mark the goalscorer tightly or help Donovan with the run, that goal doesn't get scored.

That Liverpool game was fucking ridiculous. Absolutely dreadful. The ref and his assistants need to be flogged, especially for waving off that penalty when Voronin was charging into the box. One minute later at the other end of the field, a Spurs player gets his legs grazed outside the box and he gets a free kick. Fuck Phil Dowd in his earhole. That said, Liverpool looked shit. They didn't deserve to win. We are seriously going to be missing Xabi Alonso for a while now, because Lucas is not Premier League quality. I cannot for the life of me figure out why Babel is still being allowed starts. He has no ability to cross or hold the ball, all he can do is run into a tackle. His feet are the sloppiest mess. Benayoun for 60-90 minutes would have been much better. Shit, I'd rather see Benayoun in the center instead of Lucas and put Riera on the left wing. Voronin... really? That's the best bench striker option you've got? Oh right it is, because YOU DIDN'T FUCKING SIGN ANYBODY. You lose Hyppia and don't replace him with someone who didn't start shaving less than a year ago? Now we have 3 top quality centre backs all of whom are carrying a knock of some kind and have to rely on Ayala in a pinch - and he's just not that good yet. The worst part was that the set piece defense is just fucking awful - FUCKING AWFUL. While both Spurs goals were good goals, better defense on the Bassong goal might well have stopped that.

Glad to see ESPN is just rebroadcasting an existing English broadcast AND that they didn't interrupt the game for their 30 at 30 shit. That really annoys me when they do it to MLS. But damn do they need to start updating the Tivo/DVR guides sooner. I don't think it ever showed up on my guide, I had to manually record it. Hull looked decent but what the fuck is Phil Brown doing starting Caleb Folan as the lone striker? Way to give possession to Chelsea for most of the game. Ghilas looked a better striker option and I KNOW Cousin is better. Hell, Jozy would have been better.

Stoke City look much improved this year, and Wigan even more so. Villa got owned by Wigan - not replacing Barry or Larsen with anyone of note is really going to hurt. I like Steve Sidwell, but he's no Gareth Barry. Wolves fell to a complete lack of finish - they could have equalized a few times, but missed their shots.
