If Bolivia and Mexico are allowed to host game a miles above sea level, we are allowed to host games in Denver. Costa Ricans would have lost even if we played in Home Depot Center in LA, but they are bitching just because they lost. Should have protested before the game started.

Agreed. CONCACAF teams bitching to us about playing conditions is hysterical. Honduras and Panama have cow pastures as their fields. And mexico's air is 95% uranium, 3% nitrogen, 2% oxygen, 1% miscellaneous.

I'm laughing my ass of at some of the stuff here. A "yugoslavian" team would be the best in the world? They would have a talented squad, but that's about it. Not even close to best or most talented in the world.

Albania was never part of Yugoslavia but Kosovo was.. Players like Shaqiri, Behrami, Xhaka, are descended from there.

Look at this shit:


If can look at that picture and really believe there was no valid reason to postpone the match fandom is getting the better of you.



Fandom? If the US can't beat them again then oh well.


A legitimate protest would have been made by halftime, before anyone got hurt. Not after you lost and are looking for a way out.

Should the game have been postponed? Sure.

But did it give the United States any sort of an unfair advantage? Hell no it didn't. It isn't like Zusi, OGo, Guzan, Clint, etc. play in those conditions daily.

As already said, the match should have been postponed at halftime, at the latest. Not after the game is over and Costa Rica didn't get a favorable result. Had the game ended in a draw or with the US on the losing side, I'd say the same exact thing if Klinnsman didn't try to get it postponed at the half.

He pretty much failed at every team he's been on. The only success he's had in his career was in the 2nd division of Turkey.

Kid is a major bust. He's not a terrible player though and I think he can actually be a good MLS player but he has a poor attitude and he's lazy..

Crazy how he's only 23 yet played professionally in 2004...

This.
Let's not forget that they did take part in many WCs as a unique squad and they never did anything remarkable.
Their best team was probabily the 1990 one, with Stojkovic, Prosinecki, Savicevic, Boksic, Suker, Katanec, Jarni. They didn't get past the quarter finals.

Would their current team even be more talented than that one? Possible (assuming chemistry not an issue ;)), but that wouldn't make them the automatic best in the world.
Especially because most of their best players are all forwards and couldn't play together (Dzeko, Vucinic, Jovetic, Mandzukic, Pandev, Ljajic...).

Completely agree, but I also think this current team is not even close to that squad you mentioned in terms of talent. Those guys in bold were incredible players, and I just don't think anyone is currently close to the level the displayed at some point.
