US Vs. T & T Gold Cup 06/09/07; Individual Player Ratings

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

Predicatably, Trinidad was not very good. Would’ve liked to see the US get 3 or 4, but oh well; a win’s a win. Keller: 5.5; didn’t have to make any big saves; distribution was inconsistentSpector: 6; had his best performance … Continue reading

Other Gold Cup Thoughts

US vs T&T Gold Cup 06/09/07

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

It’ll be interesting to see who Bradley starts in this one. i felt that 10 of the starting 11 for the Guatemala game were pretty obvious (Twellman being the only exception), but with the short rest (only 1 full day … Continue reading

Gold Cup Report from the Shed

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

WOW! The Home Depot Center was rocking last night. The atmosphere was great as many of the 21,344 in attendance were on their feet throughout the game. Unfortunately most of the crowd was in the powder-blue and white of Guatemala, … 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

US vs. Guatemala Gold Cup 06/07/07; Individual Player Ratings

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

First, some general thoughts…>That wasn’t pretty (it never will be against Guatemala), but it’s 3 points. I think the team did a nice job holding on to the result after Gooch was sent-off. Several guys had to move around in … Continue reading

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

(Includes Quotes from the Boston Globe, June 7th edition) The “Soca Warriors” were one of the stories of World Cup 2006. Trinidad and Tobago was the smallest nation ever to qualify for the World Cup, and they inspired us all. … Continue reading

Few things I’m looking for in the Gold Cup

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

1. Although he played well against a weak China side, Gooch is still kind of worrying me. Now that my heady notion that he would be here to anchor the US backfield through the 2010 World Cup and even beyond … Continue reading

Gold Cup will tell us a lot about the state of US Soccer

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

Nearly one year removed from the United States’ disastrous start to the 2006 World Cup, American soccer faces a plethora of challenges this summer which will tell as much about the direction of American soccer as last summer’s early exit … Continue reading

Canada could spoil the US/Mexico Gold Cup Party and other night one thoughts

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

Group A of the 2007 Gold Cup could be the most competitive of all the groups based on tonight’s action. The weather here in south Florida didn’t help the playing conditions, but all four teams played up to their potential. … Continue reading

Gold Cup Daily: Guadeloupe worth keeping an eye on

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

Call me crazy, but I have a hunch Guadeloupe who qualified for their first ever Gold Cup could be dangerous in a somewhat weak group based in Miami. Costa Rica has a squad in transition and Haiti’s team lacks depth … Continue reading
