Random factoid, Japanese fans brought trashbags with them into the stadium, and threw away all the trash in their section, after the game.

A great and absolutely essential win but it was sloppy. Aside from the 2 times we scored, and only a few other items, we did not play very well. I saw a lot of bad passes, sloppy touches, and just generally a lack of concentration. Ghana was constantly applying pressure and whenever we took possession we usually squandered it. Made it when it counts though.

Let's hope it was nerves. We will need to play much better against Portugal. I don't see us beating Germany.

We got the three points, that's the most important thing. Hopefully we improve a lot between now and the next match. Portugal will be playing for pride, it will be a tough assignment.

It sucks having to watch these games with English announcers. They are the worst. As soon as England lost, they have become unbearable to listen to. Yesterday they argued and bickered like school girls over the Muller dive and red card. They went on and on ripping each other on TV. They are now miserable because they got beat in the first game by Italy. Point I'm trying to make is it's the World Cup, a WIN is HUGE, especially the first game. Enjoy it and be thankful we didn't lose or draw.

Don't get me wrong I am very happy with the win. But we will need to play with better focus if we want to beat Portugal. They will be out to redeem their Wolrd Cup hopes. We have to bring our best game. Period.

I agree. My comments weren't directed towards you, just seemed like a lot of whining going on after we just won our opening match. Portugal is going to play like their shorts are on fire, hope we match their intensity and at least get a draw. A win would be fantastic.

I'm not sure that the US wanted to get into a run & gun game with Ghana. Packing it in with the lead was the right call IMO.

However, they were fun to watch when the score was tied.

Thought Beasley had a solid performance in addition to Jones, Beckerman, Bedoya.

If Jozy is done, do we stick with Aron or go with Wondo?

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.
I agree with everyone else. Bradley did not play well.

I thought Beasley did fine however.

I think Wondo but that's just my guess.


Anyway, great to get the three points. Portugal is going to be pretty motivated after getting embarrassed. We need a point in that one because Germany might boat race us.

I would love to see Wondo get a shot, but my gut is saying Jurgen will go with Johansen. Still praying Jozy makes a miraculous recovery.

Now on to my thoughts of the game. I was way to drunk to get on here and type last night. First off British Bulldog in Irmo was absolutely a great atmosphere!! Everyone in Irmo area should come out Sunday if you can. Is anyone still buzzing from that win yesterday like I am?? (Rewatching the game as I type this). That goal by Dempsey right off the bat was a life saver for us IMO. After that we just looked lost in possession. Ghana brought the physical punch you in the mouth (literally for Dempsey) style of play they have given us the past two times we played them. Thank the lord we escaped with a win and can move on to a more finesse type team in Portugal now. We have never played well against that type of play from them. I do have to say that after Dempsey scored that goal he kind of went MIA along with the rest of the forwards. Jozy going down hurt us in a big way in this game, he IMO is one of the few players we had that could combat Ghana's bullish type of play. It was a very nerve racking game for me after we scored and were on the backfoot. I can not say enough about Johnny Futbol (like this one waaaaayyyyyyy better). That is a huge pressure to put on a 21 yr old's shoulders coming into a heated game at halftime and be a rock in the back line. He wasn't perfect but he did play a pretty good game, and that lifesaving goal for the USA!! I loved his celebration too you could tell he was beyond excited to score for the US. Overall we have room to improve if we want to get out of the group, but I see us playing better against this more finesse type Portugal team.

I agree that Beasley looked awful. As far as that being one of the worst games he's played in a while; I'd say it was more par for the course with him.

The Zusi (sp?) substitution was huge to me. He can really keep the ball from the defense and create something, plus I think he did the corner kick? So we had a substitute serving it up to a substitute, if I'm right about that.

I wish Zusi had started. Bedoya did OK and probably helped more on defense than Zusi would have. However, I think Zusi could be key against Portugal as we are going to have to score. With Jozy out, we need a guy that can distribute and set up our attack. I think he does that better than Bedoya.
