Default Altidore's Hat Trick

I didnt watch the game earlier but Im about to watch it right now.

I heard Altidore did great.

Klissmann is taking this team to a next level, good for Altidore.

He has improved more than many players that I have recently seen. BIH is no slouch of a team. Their two strikers are world class and I think they are ranked #13

Jozy has been tearing it up this summer for the US. I hope he can keep that pace up in the EPL with Sunderland

Default Re: Altidore's Hat Trick

Jurgen has the team built so that when our starters go out there's not a talent drop...

We don't even miss Dempsey anymore...I damn sure don't.

Johansson looked crisp and sharp with a masterful first touch.

Altidore is playing confident for once...and it shows.

Having Bradley back was a major boost, HE and Altidore will be crucial in Brazil.

Lastly, I've been disappointed in Howard the last 2-3 times I've seen him down the stars and stripes...he's great, but for the first time he's not as quick as he used to be

Default Re: Altidore's Hat Trick

I watched the game and to be honest, the Serbian coach gave the game away.

I think we showed some heart and some good stuff, sp Altidore.

The Serbians were winning 2-0 and not having much trouble, they did 4 subs, thats when the US went ham on them.

The coach still did 2 more subs, he was not expecting the US to come back.

Good stuff by our boys but I though the Serbians took the game a little more serious.

Anyhow Klissmann and this team are improving day by day, we are only getting stronger and playing better soccer, thats a good thing.

Interesting that I read an article about Klissmann, he hangs out with Phil Jackson sometime, he has been to coach K speeches, Klismmann said he wants to know about good and successful American coaches, Klissmann is a very smart dude.

The best soccer coach America could ever get, for the price we pay, Klissmann is def over-achieving.

First things first - this wasn't Serbia. This was Bosnia. They are two completely different countries.

The US started getting some chances at the end of the first half before all the subs. So you can't chalk it up to subs as the reason the US came back. Yes, we scored goals after the subs but we were already creating opportunities with everyone for Bosnia still in the starting XI before halftime.

Jozy was outstanding. Want to know who he reminded me of? Didier Drogba. Jozy is using his skill. However, like Drogba, he is finally using his size and strength. He is getting smarter and his success last year at Alkmaar shows that he is learning the game.

With that said, Bradley is still the most important player on our team. I think he is underestimated in his abilities and leadership. We are finally getting better quality around him. I think Dempsey and Donovan will make this team better once everyone learns to play together. Johansson and Brooks are young but should help this team.

This was a shocking come back. However, this may be the best the US has ever looked. Guys are growing up, gaining confidence, and playing together. And regardless of subs, this US team is coming together and has talent.

Loved the grit and determination. Jozy had some sick goals, Bradley solid as always, Johannson is an interesting prospect.

Now for the not so good....

Back line was weak but that was the first time those guys had played together.

JJ was disappointing.

Cameron should not be playing in central defense. He looks best as a holding mid who can cntribute off of the bench.

F Johnson looks better in the midfield than he does in defense.

I wish he played at Ajax last year but it was AZ Alkamar (sp). I also wish he was like Drogba, but I dont think he is close to him at the moment.

Pretty good post. The thing that concerns me is the crap training that Jozy received and his lack of development before then...he was trained as a protypical african-american male in soccer in the US, which is kick it over the top and run on to it because you are fast and aggressive. Those were not the types of goals that he scored. Plus, I lOVE having Bradley in the MF

Yep, my bad on Ajax. He was in the Eredivisie last year but I said the wrong 'A' team. I corrected my post.

Remember Jozy is only 23. Give him time. He has the body like Drogba that he can use to ward off defenders.

Default Re: Altidore's Hat Trick

Bob Bradley and Bruce Arena are the best American coaches, they did what America could do at the moment; played hard, long balls, set pieces, counter-attacking defensive style.

Klissmann was the right guy to take this team to the next level, Klissmann being a world champion himself, he played for a dominant German team that played great attacking soccer and got things done.

Klissmann also had 2 big boys jobs at the German National team and at Bayern Munich.

You can tell American is transitioning into a much more attacking-aggressive team that plays smart and effective soccer.

We may not have the Ronaldinhos or Messi yet, but this team is showing that they will be able to compete and beat Spain or any other team with attacking soccer and not just by luck.

I know I know, we are not there yet, but we are improving that is a good thing, Im excited to see the boys going in the right direction.

Hoping in the next 5 years, we have a few Drogbas and Ozzils, so we can bring a Fabio Capello or a Felipe Scolari.

Jozi may be the next big thing, good for him.
