Which forum? USA always bunkers against Mexico no matter what players they call up. It's a sign of fear and respect that USA has for Mexico. Also the only reason 60k people showed up was for the half time ceremony for the Olympic Gold winners, before that there were reports of poor ticket sales.

I wouldn't say it's a sign of fear at all and it's more of a bunker/strong counter tactic and it's a good one although I think with any level of team they face they always focus on counter attacking. And is Tim human?

I'm out at dinner with the fam and this game is on. I thought US really had no shot, but I was still interested in watching it. Anyways, I've got a great view of the TV, and some mothafukca asks for them to change the channel to Yankees baseball...

MEXICANOS PARA VIDA

That's not a fact. Before 2000 yes, last 10 years it's been pretty even. USA finished top of WC qualifying, beat Mexico in WC 2002, won a couple gold cups, Mexico has won one gold cup.

Since 2000:
CONCACAF Gold Cup Titles: USA - 3; mexico - 3
Overall victories: USA - 10; mexico - 5; draws - 3
WC Appearances: USA - 3; mexico - 3
R16 Appearances (The mexican specialty): USA - 2; Mexico - 3
World Cup Appearances: USA - 1; mexico 0 (Single biggest game in the history of the rivalry. Which USA won.)
Confedrations Cup Results USA - Second place, Third Place; Mexico-?


I take that back, since 2000, USA > Mexico.

Exactly. I guess the guy forgot that the air is 99% radioactive in Mexico city with a 100,000 ft elevation.

We still win when it matters
Best USA team ever assembled.
McBride, Mathis when he was still good, Friedel, Claudio Reyna captain of Manchester City and Donavan when he was fearless and took on everybody
Refs screwed us vs Germany, we would have gone to the finals
