Actually now that Im more relaxed after the loss, is not that bad. Spain had a gazillion chances and tried hard but the US played really really well, perfect organized defense, barely making any mistakes and actually going after the game instead of playing coward football. The goalie was just wonderful. Spain started too relaxed, thats the only thing that hurts me apart of the two huge mistakes that lead to the goals.

Anyway I suggest people to watch the game because the US was really impressive. Its tough to say they deserved to win because of how many chances we had but it certainly is not absurd they are reaching the finals. I hope they beat Brazil.

Oh and this refs FIFA brings are just awful. So many bad calls for both sides. They misscalled like 6 offsides for both teams. Most agaisnt the US.

toronto FC looked really good yersterday.

Vitti scored his first goal. Hopefully this will open the flood-gates. Vitti had an all around good game actually. Him and Guevara have pretty good chemistry.

DeRo netted another into the old onion bag as well. His goal was really nice.

It's funny how the team can be so down in the dumps and then in a matter of 2 weeks everyone is happy again and we're riding a high.

I thought the team looked pretty sharp in pink too.

lol Clint Dempsey !! what a game for the US and fulham fans.

Do any of you guys know why Adu is not starting for them? He is easily their most skilled player. Does he have attitude problems?

Adu is still going to take time
I think they're happy with Dempsy/Altidore and whoever they have right now


TFC winning games and signed Gerba

Brazil was robbed of a goal that howard pushed onto the underside of the post that was clearly over the goal line. should have been 4-2.

Now, hopefully england u21s can beat zee germans tomorrow..will be tought though as we are missing a few key players

Well...we got our asses handed to us in that game.
Our backup goalie was a twat....we definitely were missing hart and agbanglahor in this match.

Anyways great for german soccer, dominating at the youth levels right now!

Benzema is going to Madrid for 35-41 million euros. Looks like Raul is going to fall out of the line-up.

Now Ribery says is Real or nothing, Xavi Alonso is the number one objetive and Silva is suddenly a posibility again.

Ribery makes mind up -- 'Real Madrid or nothing' - World Soccer - Yahoo! Sports

Where the hell are they going to put all this players. All I know is that if Alonso doesnt come I will be pissed.

well i hope you'll be pissed then Belsius because i don't think think Benitez is willing to part with Xabi or Mascherano. That's what he says at least.

Honestly, what the fuck (!) is up with Real Madrid this transfer window? Why do they feel the need to amass all the best players in the world by spending ridiculous amounts of money? Don't answer BTW. If you ask me, this is terrible for football.
