That deserves some sort of 'worse loss since the Marianas Turkey shoot' joke.

Holy fuck that was some bad defending and keeping (3rd and 4th goals in particular). In a WC final?

It's pretty clear it is her team, yeah, but I don't see what Wambach did that was so bad.  She came off the bench in the games that mattered, let the younger players carry the team and never complained about it.  Lloyd made a nice gesture to her as an outgoing veteran to wear the armband one last time.

Watched the first half in a room full of Japanese secretaries and lawyers- as the only American, I got a couple sidelong glares.  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly? 

Go US!  The only difference between the 2011 first half and this one is that the four balls that clanged on the bar then were an inch or two more accurate today. 

All life begins with Nu and ends with Nu.  This is the truth!  This is my belief! At least for now...

All soccer is women's soccer at this point. I mean that both as a compliment to the Women's World Cup and as a snide denigration of soccer as a sport generally.

The second part was just habit - insulting soccer - but I have to admit the women battle on the field more than the men.

After the Germany game I thought the US was a little lucky to be in the final - but that was a complete whupping and they fully deserved it. So congrats to them, well done. Except for Wambach, she's still a bitch.

Damn.

Wish Liverpool had someone who could be that creative from the wing. I haven't seen a more lifeless performance from that team since they laid down for Stoke at the end of last season.

Fuck him. If we need another blindingly fast winger to run down the channels before whizzing a shot over the bar or losing possession because he ran straight into 3 defenders, we'll call Lazer Markovic back from Fenerbache.  why so serious?

United are suffering from similar problems, Depay isn't ready for the big leagues.

I thought Depay looked good in the first half, but yeah, both sides have started playing REALLY BORING football. Oh look, another square ball. And another one. OOOPPSIE! Cross to the front quickly headed away by the five or six defenders camped in and around the box because they know you can't or won't be able to get in behind them.

Liverpool's 3 goals this season are all down to one player being brilliant for 30 seconds out of 90 minutes, or in the case of their 2nd game, being offside with a assistant ref who is functionally blind.

He's very like Sterling though he's fantastic until it comes to crunch where he makes a bad decision. I think it will come good for him though, just needs to work out his final pass. In his defense he's been double marked in most of the matches so far.

Cameron was ok I thought, Besler has always been mediocre. Beasley showed some life in the attack but the 2nd goal was directly from him being out of position and Jones not tracking back...AGAIN. I'm a revs fan and fuck Jermaine Jones, and fuck him and his stupid sliding tackles when they are losing and his overdribbling EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. the ball is passed to him (followed by a loss of possession). Really Jurgen? This is what we get? How many years now and the best you can come up with is Jermaine Jones playing a wide midfield , a guy who usually plays  CB for his club nowadays? Seriously fuck you. No wonder the second goal game from the other wing, they actually looked like they would try to pass (and shit just give Bobby Jones the ball all the man does is score when its late and tight).

The last goal was  a tad unlucky and a fucking nice strike by Mexico, but again it was on Beasley and Jones side.

Has US soccer actually improved under Klinsmann? I'm wondering.

US Soccer has not improved under Klinsman. As much of a douche as he was, at least Landon Donovan could be relied upon to score or create chances. I haven't seen anyone consistently able to take up that mantle since before the World Cup.

I don't think a new coach is going to suddenly fix all our issues, but it's definitely time for Klinsmann to go.  He's had his chance, time to move on.

I'm pretty sure Klinsmann was doomed to fail anyway, simply because US Soccer has its head up its ass from the get go. The MLS, as well as its done, is basically locking itself into being an also-ran league that is filled with 1) young guys that will never get above MLS level, 2) old guys from better leagues kicking the shit out of the lesser talent before they retire or 3) guys getting a cup of coffee before going on to better leagues in Europe. It won't consider relegation, it's ties with the other soccer leagues are tenuous and its insistence on control over all player contracts means parity but also lack of consistent dynasties. Also, the skill level at MLS is wildly inconsistent from team to team and year to year.

The greater crime may be the U23 team losing to Honduras and making Olympic qualifying almost impossible. There is some thought that missing the Confederations Cup is not a bad thing.

It wasn't that they lost the game, it's HOW they lost the game. The soccer looked like crap, half the players looked like crap. Jones, Beasley and Dempsey should never play another meaningful game for the USMNT. They desperately need players in the midfield who can hold onto the ball and create chances. The US simply does not seem to create these type of players.

With the exception of Howard's game against Belgium, this statement could have been made about any USMNT game from the 2014 World Cup. They have made no progress from that point at all.
