I thought Beasley was alright, but Bradley played like his lifelong girlfriend just dumped him for another dude right before the game.

Not the biggest soccer fan but I enjoy the World Cup. Great game today and awesome job getting the three points. Play well against Portugal and hopefully get three more.

I don't think bradley played poorly. I think the decision to park the bus and compress into a defensive shell after scoring in the first minute isn't conducive to open passing through the mid-field.

Think about it. We brought everyone back to keep their speedy strikers from getting behind the back four, but when we make a stop there is no open space to pass out of. We are simply left with long clearances.

What was bradley supposed to do?

Hopefully we get back to an attack mentality. This strategy tonight reminded me of play under bob bradley and bruce arena.

The outcome of this game was a thing of beauty.

NOW why the HELL wasn't half of Ghanjas team thrown out for how they were playing? They felt they were going to lose so their goal was to take out as many of us as possible so we would be weakened for our next 2 games.

I understand that we slowed down and thought we could just win 1-0 but that is never a safe bet and it almost cost us. But that second goal made me as happy as I have been about Soccer in years it was an epic way to get back at those guys for the last 2 world cups. We have concerns going forward with the injuries we saw tonight who will step up for those we have lost and exactly which ones have we lost for the rest of this years tournament?

But hell Yeah USA! as we always say WIN ANYWAY!

I think we may pay for not having Landon now that we've seen Josey go down and Clint has to play with a broken nose that won't be easy.

You're right. I get emotional after big games. I did this after football games at times and it would get me in trouble. I'm one of those who isn't crazy emotional but tend to express myself with words especially online. So I've backed off from doing this. Today, I experienced what I usually do after football games. So I said what I was feeling and should have not made the non soccer fan comments.

Bradley was bad tonight. His touch was bad his pass was bad and his awareness was awful. We didn't collapse into a defensive shell, we weren't prepared and had no on field leader in Bradley. We were lucky Ghana was impatient and pressing bc that caused them to waste their chances with long shots or poor accuracy. This one could have been 4-1 Ghana W with a little less luck on our side.

Well as far as Michael Bradley goes was he sandbagging it? Because he did not look like himself at all. Maybe he was holding back some? We all know what he is capable of.

Another thought as nasty as Ghanja was playing do you think that affected our team as a whole because they weren't sure when the next punch to the face was coming because just like in our football those hits can give out mental sluggishness.

Does Beasley usually go so far forward? I understand maybe he was trying to make up for our lack of pressure on the opponents goal but he burned us several times by driving forward getting stopped then his side was wide open for a deep run by Ganja.

Win aside, I have a positive spin on a pretty bad showing from the US.

There were obviously some jitters coming into this game. Many say you don't want to peak in your first game (a la Netherlands). It's obvious we DID NOT peak in this game. We were awful. Worst game I've ever seen Bradley play. A number of guys didn't play well. Possession was awful.

Even with some guys injured, I feel we can regroup. US can improve A LOT. And I think Portugal's style is better for us than Ghana. Portugal is guaranteed to be missing 3 starters against us. If we can somehow pull out a win and Germany defeats or even draws against Ghana, US is guaranteed to get out of this group.

Due to Portugal's goal difference if we draw, and not dumpster fire against Germany we'd go through, if Germany beats Ghana.
