Mexico’s hard fought 1-o victory over Panama last night in Houston ensured that the US would avoid playing Mexico until a potential Gold Cup final on June 24th in Chicago. Had a draw taken place last night the US would … Continue reading

US Win Group After Strong Second Half

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

While the initial few minutes of the second half of tonight’s match looked dicey for the US (largely because of Landon Donovan being replaced by Taylor Twellman), the squad recovered and played outstanding soccer without its captain for the night … Continue reading

USA-El Salvador Halftime Thoughts

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

Playing Michael Bradley, Benny Feilhaber and Pablo Mastroeni together is a mistake. You don’t have anyone remotely resembling a playmaker occupying space in the center of the midfield, thus a tendency to push the ball exclusively down the flanks or … Continue reading

Quick Postgame Thoughts on Guatemala-US

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

Scratch my half time comment on Gooch. His poor form for Newcastle returned in the two bonehead plays he made to be sent off. The US players need to become mentally tougher. Guatemala now has twice in three months given … Continue reading

US-Guatemala First Half Thoughts

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

Great finish by Dempsey for the goal I’m not sure how many bad clearances Carlos Bocanegra has to make before US coaches begin to look at other options at left center back. I don’t care how many goals Bocanegra scores … Continue reading
