robsul82: "That's 15 scoreless minutes here at Azteca and they are literally hanging from the rafters - "

"15 minutes without giving up a goal to Mexico!  Just give the win to us Monsoon, that's good enough for me!"


Nice.
 
2013-03-26 10:52:46 PM
Mexico running all over us, as I had feared. They're pissed after 2 draws and are in a No F'ing Around mode.

Chupacabra Sandwich: If this is our A team I'm dreading the ragtag squad we bust out for the gold cup this summer.


This is our B/C team. Seriously a lot of people in the back end are injured
 
2013-03-26 10:53:12 PM
This USA team is pretty uninspiring. I can see why they didn't make it to the Confederations Cup.

ScouserDuck: Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: I haven't watched soccer since the summer.  It's been American football and basketball since.  Man, I forgot how much soccer players dive.  And this game hasn't been bad.  But it takes getting used to, as an Ameican bred on other sports, who often enjoys this sport.  It comes off as horribly insportsmanlike.

Any given basketball game has more diving thn this game has had.


I guess coming back to soccer it's surprising because it comes off as unmotivated, just guys falling down for no reason.  The histrionics don't help.  In basketball you have players selling charges and flopping, but at least the NBA is cracking down and issuing fines.  Where diving is so bred in to soccer, I guess because one mistake or good acting job can change a game so completely.

robsul82: Knew we should've gone with Solo and Wambach.


They are certainly tougher than this dive-taking Mexican team.

WTF? a second yellow card?  :/
 
2013-03-26 10:53:47 PM
Halftime: Panama 1-0 Honduras
 
2013-03-26 10:54:50 PM
Sir Ian Darke should not have to do a promo for TGI Friday's for fark sakes

And what the fark is up in goal? Dont we have two or three world class goalies in premiereship? They injured too?
 
2013-03-26 10:55:19 PM
good kick, dumbass
 
2013-03-26 10:55:55 PM
Rapinoe could do better than that blindfolded.
 
2013-03-26 10:55:57 PM
Nice corner USA....
 
2013-03-26 10:56:27 PM

dietbubba: Its going to be a LONG night if they keep carding the US, though I think that one was deserved


Of course it was deserved, though I think the foul might have deserved a red.  The US needs to stop fouling and play a clean game.
 
2013-03-26 10:56:41 PM
This guy on the sideline makes it seem like teams score on every set piece.  Can't waste chances...blah blah blah.

/Left back so worriesome

My son plays for the city. We play one team who dives soo much, trying to draw a foul, we bring pillows to the game.
Flipping ruins the fun.

I guess it's strategy their coach teaches them.
Ours just teaches our kids how to play soccer.

Whole lot of this

yookaloco: And what the fark is up in goal? Dont we have two or three world class goalies in premiereship? They injured too?


Howard's injured, Friedel's retired, Keller's retired. Guzan's the best we got at the moment.
 
2013-03-26 10:57:35 PM
bradley is determined to get sent off before half
 
2013-03-26 10:57:50 PM
Looked like that guy tripped over his own two feet.
 
2013-03-26 10:57:54 PM
Michael Bradley doesn't even know the meaning of the word careful.

Seriously, he's illiterate.
 
2013-03-26 10:58:10 PM
If I'm the goalie (and I was once) I'd be ripping heads off my defenders
 
2013-03-26 10:58:11 PM
Oooh, close. This game is wide open.

The guy we have back there now plays for Aston Villa. He is used to taking 20-30 shots a game
 
2013-03-26 10:58:16 PM
Good God WTF was that?
 
2013-03-26 10:58:37 PM
You know, considering we're playing at Azteca, these Mexican players sure seem to get shot a lot.

Tim Howard had back surgery recently. Brad Guzan is our #2, he plays for Aston Villa in the PL. They suck but he gets a lot of practice stopping shots, as I alluded to earlier. Not sure who our #3 is... still Brad Friedel?

rapinoe blindfolded?  sounds hot...

He's played pretty well too, the US defense is just bush league (as seen 3 times already this match).

Mind you, as I say that make that 4 times.

/he'll proabbly blow one now.
 
2013-03-26 10:59:57 PM
That was close.
 
2013-03-26 11:00:05 PM
Should've been #1 right there.
 
2013-03-26 11:00:05 PM
Thanks guys, for the US goal update. I feel a little better.

ON a totally different note, felt for sure that was 1-0 Mex right there. Ow. My heart.
 
2013-03-26 11:00:17 PM
"Mexico is still waiting for its first own goal . . ."

/oh, "home" goal
//almost right there
 
2013-03-26 11:00:19 PM
This is going poorly.
 
2013-03-26 11:00:21 PM
And Geoff Cameron sucks the sweat off a dead camel's balls. I appreciate we need strikers but for fark sake we better start developing defenders. I said it at the last WC and through all the qualifiers. They are farking horrible
 
2013-03-26 11:00:43 PM
USA should be down at least 2-0 right now
 
2013-03-26 11:00:50 PM
Seriously..take Bradley off.
 
2013-03-26 11:01:15 PM
The USA is sloppy as fark right now.
 
2013-03-26 11:01:23 PM
Another stupid corner USA
 
2013-03-26 11:01:34 PM
Beasley just passed that directly out of bounds. Wow.

Nick Rimando. Friedel retired internationally a long time ago.
 
2013-03-26 11:01:42 PM
are you farking kidding me?

beasley, what the jesus christ was that?!
 
2013-03-26 11:02:05 PM
I'd say the longer this stays 0-0 favors the US, but they look so lifeless that it really doesn't matter
 
2013-03-26 11:02:15 PM
The US can only play midfield, screw the defenders, let's just run a 1-8-1; can't do any worse back there.
 
2013-03-26 11:02:16 PM
WTF how does that not get finished?
 
2013-03-26 11:02:26 PM

VvonderJesus: USA should be down at least 2-0 right now


Yeah, but you know what they say about those teams that keep missing on their opportunities.

/fingers crossed.
 
2013-03-26 11:02:29 PM
Beasley is getting run ragged. His stamina bar is gonna be red by halftime.
 
2013-03-26 11:02:56 PM
Beasley has a wierd head.

Everyone on team USA is terrible.
 
2013-03-26 11:03:01 PM
Watching this at a sports bar with a grand total of five people in. The atmosphere is palpable.
 
2013-03-26 11:03:17 PM
Ref isn't calling it both ways I guess.
