I been watching Luis Gil games recently and the Kid has some skill. He could be a future no#10 for us. Sebas is going to play on the NT soon. He is too good for him not to make it. He had some kind of infection recently, but he got all the tools to be a starter at WEST HAM.

Charlie Davies caught driving 125 mph

Associated Press

PARIS -- A French newspaper is reporting that American forward Charlie Davies, who nearly died in a car crash last year, was caught speeding at 125 miles per hour last weekend.

The website of Le Progres newspaper reported Friday that Davies was driving an Audi Q7 last Sunday when he was caught on a motorway in France's Jura region.

Davies, who plays for French club Sochaux, was involved in a car accident on Oct. 13, 2009, that killed another passenger and left him severely hurt. He was not the driver.

He suffered two broken bones in his right leg, a broken and dislocated left elbow, a broken nose, forehead and eye socket, a ruptured bladder and bleeding on the brain.

The 24-year-old missed the World Cup.

Davies scored two goals for Sochaux against Bordeaux near the start of the 2009-10 season, but has not yet played on the first team this season.

He has four goals in 17 games for the U.S. and played a part in the run to the 2009 Confederations Cup final.

After an incredible recovery, Davies returned to training with Sochaux in March this year.

is it too much to ask Bob to deviate from the standard 4-4-2? I wouldn't mind seeing this lineup on Saturday.

                              Guzan

Cherundolo--Onyewu--Bocanegra--Lichaj

                       Jones -- Bradley
       Feilhaber ---               --- Dempsey
                             Holden

                            Altidore

It's a shame Torres didn't get a nod even though that would mean having to drop somebody else from our already congested midfield. I really think he needs more game time with the NT even though. Would have liked to see Mix Diskerud get a call up too.

Oh yea and via his facebook

Well the day has arrived. Jermaine Jones ready to make this USMNT debut. Lichaj is also making his debut. Will see what these guys bring to the table, Especially Jones. Some much anticipation, hes finally ready.

No way. The golden generation is definitely not going to come from our generation. Give it another 20-25 years.


Anywhere I can watch a replay of the full game online? I had a game myself, I've just been able to tune in for the final ten minutes.

Didnt see game but just reading a little about it, is it fair to assume our Defense played the same non-aggressive, getting pushed back, not pressuring the ball game we played in the WC? Glad to see Jozy got a goal - he is still so young I just hope he remains confident bc he will be a huge asset in 4 years

not sure if i like Mo as a central defender yet, maybe after a few more reps there...he didnt do bad though

My post game analysis:

Dempsey is pure class, my favorite MNT player of the last five years.

J. Jones; pure class despite his poor clearance leading up to the equalizer. Instant starter, he runs the midfield now.

Going forward Holden is by all means one of our best players, on the defensive end of things not so much. His service on set pieces is impeccable.

Feilhaber was invisible all night up until he was replaced by Bedoya.... who was also invisible. It's a shame because I think they're both good players (particularly Feilhaber) but neither has done anything to improve their stock in a while despite tearing it up for their respective club squads this season.

Jozy was active and a handful all night. Scored on 1/3 good chances, a good night for Jozy. We have to find a way to be more efficient with our chances. Half the equation is finding a truly clinical finisher (do these exist in the US?) to pair with Jozy up top.

Gooch looked rusty. Besides his goal he was meh. IMO he needs to leave Milan and go somewhere where he's gonna play, preferably a top table French/Dutch side.

Boca, and Cherundolo to a lesser extent are aging. I doubt either is likely to be in the picture come 2014.

Lastly I LOVE the idea of Edu playing at CB. Not only are there no suitable short term candidates for the position but there are some serious benefits to having a guy with the technical ability and composure of a Maurice Edu on the back line. The past four years the fallowing have been constants when it comes to our back line; critical defensive mistakes, poor distribution, lack of composure. Edu made a few mistakes but he immediately rectified the latter two problems. I've never seen better distribution from anyone on our back line. Edu's inexperience showed but he has all the physical and mental attributes to be a very good CB both at the professional and international level. With our depth at midfield it makes no sense to have one of our best players on the bench if he's not going to be getting consistent playing time at a central mid position (even though I think Edu is better than Bradley). Whether he ever makes a permanent switch or not, a player who can play CB and Dmid is an invaluable asset.

pretty damn impressive for your MNT debut
post #1286 of 9082
where the heads at?

i'm excited about tonight's line up, I wanted to see Lichaj get the start at RB or LB but i'm excited to see what Brek Shea can do on this stage.

It was pretty terrible from both sides. Little to no urgency, neither team had any interest in attacking goal, possession was non existent. Things picked up a little in the second half but it was still pretty poor.  I was expecting a lot more from Columbia.

Jones seriously lacked consistency but was still easily the best player on the field for us. Michael Bradley sucked, he shouldn't have been out there the second half.

IMO the only highlight was Lichaj's debut at RB in the second half. Definitely need to see more of him in the lineup.

Brek Shea started on the left wing. He looked nervous and out of place, had a moment or two where he might have shown something.

Everybody else was average or worse. One of the teams poorer performances in a long time.
post #1290 of 9082
I just made the mistake of watching it on ESPN3 after making a point not check the web to see the result. Really a boring game for both sides - no open play until the last 15 or so minutes - before that it was basically dominated by uncreative play in the middle third. Agree that Jones was easily the best player for US. Altidore is so frustrating to watch because I think he will be very good, but makes too many mistakes from inexperience or hubris. Agree that Lichaj was a pleasant addition to the squad. Beyond that a very forgettable game and Im sorry I wasted the time to watch it.
