Klisnmann have to make it out of the group, that is what good coaches do.
klinsmann is guaranteed to coach through the next world cup

Quick question about renaldo, is his main strength set pieces or just any time a good scorer. Someone said something on the local radio but I don't trust random callers. Thanks in advance.

Ronaldo has on the ball "trickery" talents that few have. Really the only weakness in his game is that he will not defend.

He is excellent on free kicks, he has power, accuracy and he can make the ball dance under his feet.

he is a beast on free kicks. He is amazingly fast so he is great in counter attack. He is great in the air. His footwork is top notch. He can find the goal from any angle. His two weaknesses are he goes to the ground to easy. Flopping or justified. Second he tries to get to cute sometimes and tries tricks instead of the simple play.

He isn't usually an active defender but that is not his game. He is a better defender than some give him credit for. (not you in particular). He is used on set pieces to mark opponents, in walls, and his shear speed allows him to get back on people. say as compared to Messi

So basically the called who said he is just a excellent striker on free kicks was an idiot, which is what I thought. Thanks

And he dives, whines, yells at his teammates, is extremely arrogant, a prima donna, and one of the most selfish players on the planet.

But yeah, he's talented (I do mean that seriously. Guys has some of the best skills in the world on the ball).

Gotcha. I was thinking he would play Dempsey's spot and Clint would move to Jose's but I don't even know if he can do that.

I just love Donovan and want to see him play one more time for the US at the World Cup.

I am a casual fan of soccer, but I have been watching a good bit of the World Cup. I watch it on the Spanish Channel, because the commentator is fantastic.

the difference between him and Messi is dribbling, Ronaldo has great footwork but his dribbling is not as good as Messi, dribbling is the most dangerous skill in soccer, you master dribbling by playing streetball and futsal for the most part.

I know this is going to upset soccer fans, but I'm so tired of hearing about the USA soccer ratings. The soccer game, which gets the entire nation uniformed when there was no other sports going on, got a lower rating than the average NFL football game. In other words, the NFL gets 12-16 games in a week all averaging higher ratings than one US soccer game in their version of playoffs.

I'm happy the US team won and that people cheered them on, but let's stop blowing it out of proportion.

The game got higher ratings when you put ESPN and univision together. You have to put them together since the nfl their is only 1 source. Also what about the viewing parties? Never seen 10s of thousands of people gather in one place to watch a game. That only counts as 1 tv in a TV rating. Yes it is not the nfl level consistently but for that 1 night it beat the average nfl tv rating. Now the Sunday night NBC game always average more and where higher

They take into account viewing parties. Do you not realize every Sunday of the football season there bars filled with people watching the games, not just sports specific bars like with soccer. Also even with Univision the numbers don't surpass the NFL regular season, let alone playoffs or Super Bowl. The NFL on a weekend does 12x better ratings. USA soccer benefits massively from being the national team and still is nowhere close in viewership. You can make excuses but the facts are that even as it's at it's highest ratings ever, it is still bottom tier.

I'm not talking bars I'm ttalking30000 under Brooklyn Bridge viewing parties. Never seen that even for the superbowl. I do retract my earlier statements though the stats I originally saw were in NYC for average jets and giants ganes

DC had higher ratings for redskins games.
That's why he's saying that.

Wouldn't be shocked though if that game had higher ratings than irrelevant franchises.

I am shocked about the Jets-Giants stat, then again the city is split so if it was just one team in NY the ratings would be higher
