This was the game before the rape we did in azteca a few days ago http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4s3jkHH8-A all hail the the mexicutioner


I just hope he can be consistent right now I like him coming off sub for out NT

Don't know what you're On about.
lmao at hate and dislike being synonymous lol. bro they're different. when u hate someone u want them to die like its passionate, nobody really hates anyone, you just dislike them. Thats why people say hate and love are strong words. Back in HS I thought the same thing you thought but one of my best friends explained this to me and i'll never forget it, if you hate someone you want them to die.

You win.
You're a ****ing retard if you really think hate and dislike are the same. I dislike kobe stans but I don't hate them because that would be me showing passion to actually care enough to loathe someone intensely. And I've never seen hate and dislike as synonyms in any thesaurus. Drop the weed when doing work at school son.

possibly 2014 Bosnia

..................Begovic
Mujdza... Spahic... Besic ...Salihovic
...............Zahirovic
Stevanovic ................... Lulic
..................Pjanic
........ Dzeko ........ Ibisevic

Everyone except for Besic, Stevanovic, and Zahirovic will be in their football prime...this is out chance, especially with the easy qualifying group we have. And if Haris Seferovic (swiss u17 world cup winner) gets a callup, and other players like Bilbija, Visca, and Duric become real time players...we could have a decent chance at going pretty far (A man can hope, cant he?).

I think Geoff Cameron is the future at the CB position. He's versatile too, able to play CDM and some CM if needed. He was brilliant against Mexico and if he can crack the starting 11 at Stoke this year, that'll really help the NT. Gooch, sadly, looks finished at the international level. His lateral movement is awful and he's got no foot speed anymore. Clarence Goodson is another option to replace Bocanegra. Damn, if only we had Neven Subotic...

I don't care if Timmy Chandler doesn't suit up for us because I love what I've seen of Fabian Johnson on the left side. He can play the wing or the left back spot equally well and he's a great crosser.

Jermaine Jones is talented but he's so damn reckless. He's a red card waiting to happen and with our style of play, we can't afford that. Hopefully Danny Williams has a good year in the Bundesliga although he was awful against Mexico.



I don't watch the MLS but apparently Shea's had a very up and down year. I liked the minutes he had against Mexico and you can obviously see that there's a ton of talent there. A move to Europe for a bottom table EPL or Bundesliga team would be great for him IMO.

I think Bill Hamid is the future GK of the national team.

This is our best lineup right now IMO:

Howard
Cherundolo - Cameron - Bocanegra - Johnson
Bradley - Jones
Donovan - Holden - Dempsey
Altidore

Shea is a quality player, he's really good on the ball and creative(something Americans lack). He's having a down MLS season but last season he was a MVP candidate and this season he's having issues with his coach and he has stagnated with his development, he needs to get out of the MLS. I think he's definitely a starter at the LW position down the road.

I don't think Bill Hamid is anything special tbh and I think Sean Johnson is actually much better than him. But like I said earlier I think Ryan Meara will eventually be the answer for the GK position. Keep an eye out on him.

I also don't think Bocanegra, Cherunaldo and even Donovan will last by 2014 and we need to look for replacements(although I think that will be Donovan's last year of playing). I think Ream and Lichaj can replace them respectively.

---------Howard
Lichaj--Cameron--Ream--Johnson
-------Jones--Bradley
----------Holden
Donovan---Altidore--Dempsey

That sounds like my lineup. I also envision Shea and Boyd as JK's top subs

People who think Brek shea is good, next time you watch him look at his touch, every time he recieves the ball it bounces 5 feet off of him, he would not get the time and space he does in the MLS as he does in a good league and even in MLS he gives the ball away alot. He's 22 his touch is not going to get much better. I don't like this guy at all from the little I've seen of him. I think Freddy Adu is our best creative player, with better technique, better touch and more flair and better eye for a pass. Adu should be given a legit shot at taking Holden's place in the squad, he offers alot more than Holden does, the only American player with genuine ability to unlock a defense. Who cares what his resume looks like, Jozy has a pretty bad resume too but has settled on AZ and always been good for the national team, forget about Adu playing on second division turkish teams, he should be implemented into the first 11.

He needs to call up Cocalic soon. Great young defender. Stevanovic will most likely play in Serie A. Heard interest from Napoli and Lazio because he dominated the Wales game.

You have never seen Brek Shea play so why are you making unfair judgements on him? Shea is a creative player, especially as a winger and I do think he plays similar to Dempsey. His touch isn't bad at all I don't know where your making that judgement from. He has a good shot, good with the ball, able to beat defenders 1 v 1, and he's pretty damn athletic. Problem is that FC Dallas is a pretty stagnant team with a poor midfield and players with no creativity what so ever which cripples his strength. He has alot of potential and if he can make a move to Europe it will be great for him.

Freddy Adu is nowhere near USMNT potential lol. He can barely stay on a MLS team. He is creative and he does have a good shot but he lacks speed, consistency, and vision to be anything other than being average. I don't think it's even an argument on whos the better player between Adu and Holden.

I'd rather have JK take a chance on Mikkel Diskerud instead of adu.

I like watching Hazard play, he has that extra gear and he always seems to be in the right space. He was from the french league, right?
