I'm off work until 3pm. Woot. Hope we show up against The Machine.

I am worried Ghana is going to smoke Portugal.

Also in retrospect, Bradley lost the ball on their end of the pitch and we had 3 defenders in the box and they had one striker. No one marked the guy at all. Cannot put it all on Bradley even though losing it then ended up tragically.

Not sure what to make of it but this morning there was a cardinal outside our window and it sounded like it was repeating "Germany Germany Germany" over and over. Wanted to record it but it had left by the time I got back with my phone.

So the birds in our area have already switched allegiances

heart breaker at the end there. Plus the Portugal's first goal should never have happened.

I know ALOT of people are disappointed....I'm freaking excited for thr future of this team! !

Yeah yeah, win now is the American thing....but we've seen some excellence this WC. We're headed in thr right direction and ARENT relying solely on set pieces.

I think I'd try Jones at CAM and let bradley focus at CM or CDM...bradley has looked slow and I think he's ovrtthinking.

I still dont believe Donovan would have offered much else.


Ghana is a VERY good side. Portugal is dangerously good....sadly I don't see Portugal beating Ghana. I just hope Ghana doesn't put it on Portugal and that Germany and we agree to "play catch"

I have no idea how Michael Bradley made our National Team and can't even fathom how he plays in Europe.

That's bc you're judging him 2 games. He PLACE in Europe, he came back to MLS at Toronto FC
.

If Bradley plays HALF his game we win BOTH games and are +5 in goal diffrrentisl. He is a huge difference maker. Honestly I believe he's over thinking aal tracking and defending instead of letting the game dictate. He'll get it right.

I know soccer is a finesse sport for the most part but some of those Portuguese players were jacked. A couple of them looked like football players. I think Altidore could've helped us some with his size. Is he officially done?

And while Bradley deserves a lot of blame, our back line did a terrible job in that sequence as well. I was also surprised that Wondo didn't take a shot on goal .. To me, he had ample opportunities to dribble into the box and take a shot, twice. We had them reeling.

They said he may return later in the tournament. Not sure if that means for Germany or later (if we make it out of group).

Thanks. I think if he can go against Germany, you have to play him unless they do agree to just kick it around for 90 mins.

Alexli Lalas (sp) said if you had asked everyone before this started, through the first two games with Ghana and Portugal you'll have 4 points, no one would've turned that down.

Now of course, knowing how the last game ended is tough to swallow, but we're in a good spot.

You know we've come a long way when a tie against Portugal is a HUGE disappointment.

Still, I'm gutted.

But it is so much fun to see people that have had no interest in soccer come to the bar and get into it.

Had a guy sitting with me who knew almost nothing at all about soccer. After the game we were all moping around, except the newbie. He pipes up all excited, "OK, what time do we play Thursday? I'm pumped."

Yes the fullbacks were lack...BUT bradley can not lose that ball so easily.

And yeah some of those guys are as big as football players...and some are much more aggressive. ..I loved watching John Terry...England's Ray Lewis.

What a gut punch that was. The soccer index says we are a 76% favorite to advance but to me us losing to Germany and Ghana hammering Portugal seems way too likely. I guess what we need to root for is no goals. No news will be good news on Thursday.

Ghana will crush Portugal. We really really need a draw against Germany. I was confident against Ghana and Portugal. I'm not confident against Germany. This has nothing to do with being disappointed about yesterday's match. It's just that Germany is so much better than us.

Ghana, the US, and Germany DESERVE to go through. Then there are other groups, with teams like Argentina and Belgium, who have been disappointing and mediocre yet they have advanced easily. I hope we can hang on but I don't have a lot of confidence right now.
