Gold cup has been pretty lowkey but I figured I'd put in another thread for those who want to discuss the match

per twitter, parts of the pitch consists of sand spray painted green.  pitch said to be in awful condition.

Anyone know a good online to watch it through?  Hablo espanol

Looks like the USMNT may be playing in Saprissa after all

Why don't you go on down to the FRONT ROW for SPORTS in the EU?

I really hope JerryWorld doesn't botch this like they did the superbowl

Interesting to see what EJ can do as a lone F for the USMNT. I expect Donovan to press up too, but we'll see if Eddie can get his head on one or two.

Pitch is FedEx field levels of terrible and they are limiting signage for supporters. Oops

No thread for NASCAR trucks on dirt?

American Outlaws were only allowed to bring one banner and couldn't hang it...wtf Jerry?

Might cover some of his ads? IDK what the rationale for that is. Might end up with another Rio Tinto-like library atmosphere.

Soccer is the only thing that convinces me to go to the gym if I skip working out early. So off we go. GLHF.

Huge, obvious seams in the field.  Filling in the seams with the green sand.  Dead patches abound.

And they're starting Stu Holden and his reconstructed knee on it, which seems like a wonderful idea.

I have really been trying to be interested in the Gold Cup. it just doesn't seem to be as impassioned as the Euro Cup.

Corner kicks will be a biatch


I thought everything was bigger in Texas. Anyone got a decent online feed?

hahahahaaahhaha!!!  great placement for a left footer looking to bend it inwards.

Brad Friedl said the field, asdie from being in shiatty condition, is really hard as well.  apparently doesn't fell like a real grass field.  not sure how the sod was laid down but apparently they didn't do a great job.
 
2013-07-24 06:54:59 PM
Argh, it's on Fox Soccer Channel? We don't get that one, so I guess it's Univision for me.

/wonder if they have SAP...
 
2013-07-24 06:56:04 PM
This will be a clusterfark. But at least Mexico plays second.

Vipbox is much better than First Row. Link

Geez, are they going to ban little American flags that lack any sponsorship?
 
2013-07-24 07:01:07 PM
I thought of going over to see this. A little late now, as the first match starts in 1 minute. I would have liked to see how the pitch looked in person  (not to mention seeing the matches).
Oh, well.
 
2013-07-24 07:02:58 PM
Okay, which one of you farkers has the FREE BEER MOVEMENT Scarf?
 
2013-07-24 07:02:58 PM
I dig the Honduran jerseys, and how they incorporated the flag stars. U.S. looks great in hoops, too; I hope they keep that as a traditional look instead of wearing whatever experiment Nike decides to crap out that year.

It does seem to be rather poor.  Assuming it actually holds down and doesn't peel up or something stupid, the real question is who does this favor?  The USMNT has been on a tear lately, scoring multiple goals.  This seems like it would favor offense and speed.
 
2013-07-24 07:04:51 PM
I'm going to miss Fox Soccer.  There.  I said it.
 
2013-07-24 07:05:39 PM
I'm glad someone got a thread in, mine got red-lit and I didn't see any others, oops!  I think the line-up looks good and I'm hopeful for another win!  Sucks about the pitch though.
 
2013-07-24 07:06:42 PM
Wow....that pitch......

For those looking for streams. Firstrow sports, vipbox are two off the top of my head.

/usa!
 
2013-07-24 07:08:00 PM
I think we see at least one Donovan assisted goal from EJ tonight. Might end up being the only goal. Not going to score 5 or 6 in this one. Will probably need a couple of nice plays from Rimando too.

Given the pitch and the fact that US got all their goals out last game, this one feels like a one goal game to me.
 
2013-07-24 07:09:47 PM
Announcer just mentioned "narrow field". It isn't smaller width wise tonight is it? That'll hurt the americans
 
2013-07-24 07:10:21 PM
That field is so small it looks like they're playing in Yankee stadium.
 
2013-07-24 07:10:46 PM
What's up with the commentary. Sounds like its being done in a fishbowl.
 
2013-07-24 07:10:51 PM
That was almost one of the dumbest handballs all year.

Not just you, it sounds odd on mine too.

No Gus Johnson?
 
2013-07-24 07:12:15 PM
9 guys behind the ball for Honduras. Hmm.  Conditions don't look the best, but hopefully the US can overcome it.
 
2013-07-24 07:13:47 PM
I think that ball hit someone in the face.

I imagine he's only doing the Fox network games. I've been kind of curious whether they're broadcasting from the stadiums or from the studio. Seems like a lot of travel if they've been doing all the games on-site, as they don't have that many teams.

You got your Portland game. I had to stay up late for that 11pm start time.
 
2013-07-24 07:17:01 PM
Eddie Johnson is on some kind of streak.

GO USA!

I remember getting up at like 4am while on vacation in Hawaii to watch an EPL game once.
