    oh and also could anyone be playing worse than Clint Dempsey? its been forever since i have seen him play well for the Nats, he is great at Fulham, scored a brace against Chelsea, but out here he looks selfish and lazy

    Thanks Corky... The US needs to start giving away free tickets and booze at the games. That will get some rowdy fans out and maybe give the US home field advantage. Another soccer related question, how accurate are those rankings from FIFA? BCS-level or just BS?

    At one point the US was number 4 in the world, that should tell you everything you need to know about the legitimacy of the Fifa world rankings

    Great so it is basically the BCS only on an International level. After watching the 1st half, they look to be 140th ranked team in the world not 14th.

    We were number 4?? It looks like one of those Champion League teams would eat us up right now. Do any US players play in that league besides Dempsey?

    Man this is frustrating. It seems like no one is on the same page.

    Sweet so how in the hell does a guy get suspended for the next game because of freaking yellow cards and is still able to play the rest of the game? No wonder people do not want to watch soccer.

    Don't exert yourselves too much guys. Better to just stand around and watch them run right by you. Shit.

    That was some serious weak ass defense....

    So does the US produce good goalies or is there just a worldwide shortage of them? Judging by our score tonight, I'm inclined towards the latter.

    US is terrible. Most of the top tier club teams in europe we wipe team us all over the field.

    Whats the impact going to be on saturday with Beasley being out? Someone care to explain the whole card suspension thing? is it a cumulative thing?

    First off, that was fucking pathetic. Howard shouldnt feel bad at all, his defense fucked him hard.

    Also, its Bradley who will be out. If you are in a pool tournament such as the one now, if you get a card in one game it carries over to the next game. Once you get a second, you sit out a game. If you get two yellows in one game you sit out the rest of that game and the next game. If you get a red you sit out the rest of that game and the next game.
