Let's get some predictions going for the final and winner.

I'll say Germany over Brazil.

Looking like Ronaldo might not be 100% for our game against the Ronaldo and company Portugal game. That is fine with me!!

The ONLY way Gemany and Brazil would face off in the Final IS if EITHER of them finish 2nd in their group. I have the USA escaping in 2nd out of our group, beating Belgium then USA losing to Argentina.

I don't see that happening.

I'm saying Germany over Argentina

Hell yeah, could be shaping up for a repeat of 2002. That was one of my favorite US games of all time. 3 first half goals and then we hang on to win 3-2. I almost had a heart attack by the end of that game.

Sounds like Ronaldo's left leg has both a Hamstring injury (if I remember this has been nagging this past season) AND patellar tendonitis.

http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/news/y=...s-2354203.html


Hopefully if this princess goes down in a heap his acting isn't what causes him to writhe in pain. Best player in the world or not, I hope ALL divers tear every ligament in their knees. They deserve it for diluting the game.

Chandler is not that bad, but I do not know what the hell he was thinking when he tried to play that ball against Turkey instead of just back passing it to Guzan. He's the reason we didn't shut Turkey out. Though better to get your mistakes out in these friendlies than in the WC games that matter.

CHandler is not personally invested in success, he doesn't give 100% at all.

Fabian Johnson is FAR better BUT we need him at left mid when he's on the field. I dont trust Beasley.


Our Defensive back WILL perform well in one game but the next will be terrible.

I haven't seen enough of Green on the Intnl stage to make a decision BUT, what I have seen is he's a child among men. He simply is not ready IF we're playing to win for now.
I'm not mad about the Donovan thing, I woul dhave left him off as well. He bailed on the team during critical stages of qualifying. That doesn't sit well with me at all.




So, what would YOU consider a successful World Cup 14?

In all honesty, and maybe I'm selling them short, I would consider it a success to escape the group stage. This is one hell of a draw. Germany, ball d'or '13 and the most talented team in Africa.

If we finish 2nd in our group, color me PLEASED.

The only way I'll be disappointed is if we a dismissed with less than 4 points. I watch too many matches to think we are likely to win it all, capable? Maybe. Probable? No.

I want to see Johansson and Alitdore get into a rhythm. I want to see Beckerman and Bradley dominate the midfield again...and for the love of God...let a defender step up into a leadership role, I miss Gooch Boca!!!


Also, as a shout out...One of my favorite U.S. player of all time:


Frankie Hejduk, no he wasn't the most talented or the fastest or even a really good player. But he played with reckless abandon 110% every single second he was on the pitch. Imagine if Dempsey and Altidore played this way. We're starting to see Bradley play this way.

Give me one guy who lays every ounce of his being on the pitch over a talented whiner anyday!

If we beat Ghana out of the gate I think we could have a case to come out second in our group. With Ronaldo not being 100% I fancy us even more in that match to pull out a win. They have big defensive problems like us if that joker pepe is out as well. On to our defense I miss Boca, but gooch was crap IMO and not just because he went to Clemsux. I agree with your point on Frankie he gave everything he had every game for his country and I loved him for that. I feel as though JJ does that now for us but he has more of a temperament problem. I would personally rather see beckerman and Bradley in the midfield. My preferred lineup come match day would be


Howard
Fabian. Cameron. Besler. Beasley

Beckerman
Zusi. Davis
Bradley

Captain America. Wondo


Not really set on left mid though but I agree Green is just to small and fragile for the world stage at the moment I think.

Ehh, idk...Gooch wasn't that bad pre-injury. He was a BIG strong body who struggled at first and had really come along, the only thing he really lacked was pace. he won the middle almost everytime....but when he was injured, he was finished. I trusted him more than I do Beasley.

Howard
Gonzo. Besler. Cameron. Beasley

Beckerman
Jones (60th sub - Mix) Zusi (extra sub--Fabian)
Bradley

Dempsey Johansson (70th sub Jozy)



I'd rather have Gonzo and Besler shift over a little than waste Fabian there. Fabian like to push forward too much and that could REALLY leave us in dire straights, so at best he's a sub for me in the midfield.

Also, if Yedlin AND Green are going to Brazil, I don't see how Brek Shea isn't going. He's has FAR more upside than Brad Evans, imho, plus as I stated earlier, his size could be crucial late in the game vs a less than 100% Lahm.

Aron and Dempsey are the same type of player for me so idk how both of them would do up top together. I just wish jozy didn't peak last summer instead of this summer starting now.......sigh

I think Aron and Dempsey would play very well off of each other. Something changed in Dempsey when he was named Captain. He doesnt take on 2-3 defenders at once, he'll pass the ball now....freaking finally!

I think that one-two punch would help. I'm not convinced Wondo is a starter yet, sub sure bc of his high energy vs tired defenders.
