Heath Pearce played really well against El Salvador, id rather have him playing at left back than Bornstein..i swear at least once or twice a game Jonathan has a lapse in judgment or focus and exposes them at the back...Sneijder would've had a tight angle to shoot from, theres no reason to commit that foul...hopefully Edu gets some action in the second half

and i hope theres nothing serious with Holden, he just started seeing minutes for Bolton..would really be a shame if he missed some time

that was a sick meg Altidore put on pimp.gif

Beasley is definitely the frailest player ever..any type of contact and he flops like Manu

one game doesnt make Pearce mr. consistent. he has definitely had issues with mistakes, even for FC Dallas against MLS teams that aren't nearly the quality of the national teams we will be facing.

GOAL! good stuff Bocanegra. 

post #66 of 9496
^i guess i havent seen him play in the MLS too much really...but when ive seen him with the national team he seems to play well, he gives them something going forward down the left side

one thing you can say about Bornstein is that you can see improvement from him every game since the el salvador game in salt lake.

Findley looked inexperienced out there, everytime he got the ball he didnt know what to do with it and stood still.

Demerit pimp.gif

JR might be our most under appreciated player, I like the way he plays.

Hopefully nothings wrong with Stu.

Agre wit pretty much everything.  Findley's not ready and let's hope CD is gonna be set to go soon.

Bornstein plays solid most games lately, but there's always one play a game that he makes that makes you question his quick decision making.

Overall, though, I saw some good things out there.
post #70 of 9496
I just watched it...how was that not a red card? Hopefully he's okay bc that looked pretty bad.
I not too disappointed, the goals allowed were just unfortunate especially the second. Im happy the US got one in though. I thought Jozy's strike was going in..

Here's what I took from the game.

Mo Edu should obviously be starting. Torres tended to disappear. Bornstein's a bum, glad he won't be starting.


I wish Bedoya would've gotten more touches, I like his game.


Jay DeMerit was a rock at the back like always. Beas played very well, looked very good on the left side. We really missed Demps composure and poise in the midfield.

thats what i was trying to say..Bornstein can be really good at times but then he just has a momentary lapse at the back and makes a bad tackle or foul that ends up hurting the team...against a team like the Netherlands, they're going to have the majority of possession no matter who they play..the US did a good job of not giving them any real scoring chances up until that penalty..there was no need to spin Sneijder down right there, but it was so obvious when he did it...if he figures that out, he would have left back locked up...until then Bob is going to give players like Pearce a shot

I still dont understand why he put Bornstein as cb.

I feel what you're saying but, improving every game doesn't mean much now. Bornstein cost us a goal in qualifying when he cleared the ball over his head over his own box eyes.gif

He's constantly on his back foot, he has no countering ability at all. I just don't think he's good enough to play at this level.

Yesterday he cost us a PK right before half, and damn near another PK b/c of a handball in the box. 

Carlos, DeMerit, Gooch, Spector............Pearce = sub

im not saying he should start, but atleast he has been showing improvement. Its just that he has one or two mental lapses each game lol.

News on Stu is that he has a broken leg and will miss 6 weeks.

Jozy confirmed on his twitter that he will be going back to 17.


Am I the only guy here that actually likes Sacha?  I'm a big fan of Robbie Rogers too and he's been getting alot of hate recently.


As far as the game, I think DMB had a HUGE game.  I had almost counted him out for June, but now he's definitely right back in there.  Stu was lookin real good before that injury (should have been a card) so I'm hopin he gets fit.

Post Game Quote Sheet: U.S. MNT vs Netherlands

U.S. Men’s National Team Head Coach BOB BRADLEY

On the tonight's match against the Netherlands:
“Certainly it was a good test for us and I think overall the team played well. The collective effort was pretty solid. There were moments where it needed to be sharper, quicker and better and we still need to raise the bar. Late in the game it was nice to see a good push. We had the ability to move the ball forward get people running off it and we created some good opportunities. We take a lot from the game.

     It's been such a perfect fit for Landon in Everton. Hate all you want, but he's been balling.pimp.gifpimp.gif 

    Sucks that he dogged Beckham, otherwise he could possibly stay longer with the Toffees.

Those ones were the "Don't Tread On Me" kits from 06 and are impossible to find.

These ones are the new kit and should be available this summer:

Don't think it has anything to do with Beckham.  LD has shown commitment to the MLS for almost his entire career.  He's earned the right to leave.
