    Honestly, Clint is the only reason I watch the US mens national team.

    Here's some interesting news. Coach Bob Bradley's son Michael Bradley looks like he'll be on loan at Aston Villa. I suppose it's a nice upgrade for him to be part of the Premier League.

    Not a bad draw against Argentina today. I heard Cambiasso scored for Argentina, but hell a draw against Argentina seems fine to me.

    If only it were a real match and not a meaningless Friendly match...I think the result may have been very different.

    Obviously. A good confidence boost nonetheless.

    US-Paraguay in a couple minutes.

    Absolutely dominated the match. If only Jozy Altidore didn't play like a slow Chad Ochocinco.

    Losing to Panama is really stupid... Jozy Altidore had to save them against Guadalupe

    It is really becoming a joke. I can see them squeaking into the final, but if they play like this against Mexico it will easily be 0-3...I could care less though, FORZA AZZURRI!!!

    Haha. I knew you'd say something regarding the Italian team. I think you have a better chance of coaching team USA over Bradley and winning than being a "Vitadmin" in the next year.

    USA Players after 4-0 demolition by Spain: "No big deal, just a friendly. Not even first choice squad."
    2-0 over Canada, 2-1 loss to Panama, and a 1-0 win over Guadeloupe. They are not that good. I will smile the day ESPN and FSC talking heads get off their high horse to realize USA is not good at football. USA couldn't put the ball in an open net against Guadeloupe and they were previously ran off the pitch by Panama. Bob Bradley has done nothing more than create a squad with no identity, no play making ability, no forwards, and a shitty central defense. Good thing Tim Howard is one of the better goalkeepers around.

    You said you want to coach them. Pretty cheap remark saying you could care less when posting in this thread. I understand your dissent and all, but you obviously care a little bit about the team. What were you doing during the world cup knockout stage?

    Cheering for Ghana...

    I never said I wanted to coach them. I made a comment on Facebook that said, give me half of what Bradley get's paid and I guarantee I can beat Panama. It was a shot at Bradley, not quite sure how you interpreted that as a sincere interest in the US national team job lol.

    USA FINALLY put out an attacking lineup. I couldn't believe it. Pretty much all game they were class over Jamaica. USA do need to invest in some goal scoring boots though. I think Bradley might have finally learned that the strength of USA is the wingbacks and wing forwards, and that Dempsey is the USA's best forward.

    They need to invest in forwards, not boots...

    Clint Dempsey!!! Nice job by Donovan as a sub. Almost a year to the day he scores the big goal against Algeria.

    Now if they can learn to win the finals against most likely Mexico....
