USA-Guatemala Live Blog

Rob Stone…………aggggh Carlos Ruiz playing at home @ Pizza Hut Park. A nice storyline as ESPN shamelessly promotes its MLS package. Glad to see Frankie Simek and Jay DeMerit getting the start. Hopefully they will get a good look in … Continue reading

Some Parting Thoughts About US-Ecuador

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

Fox’s Jaime Trecker on Bradley’s Call Ups

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

” If nothing more, this roster at least signals that Bradley is serious about trying to win some games. Moreover, the selection is a welcome change from a pattern that had some players wondering if their international careers were finished … Continue reading

Bradley Calls Up the Perfect Mix of Players

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

Bob Bradley has passed his first major test to be National Team Coach in my eyes. Unlike his predecessor and mentor, Bruce Arena who often times ignored the play of non “chosen” American players based in European leagues, Bradley picked … Continue reading

A Long Difficult Summer Ahead for Nats

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

The draws for both Copa America and the CONCACAF Gold Cup have both been made and neither is particularly favorable to the United States. The same can be said for US U-20 team in the U-20 World Cup, where the … Continue reading

The US Could Learn from Steve McClaren

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

Let me preface this blog post by saying I am in no way a fan of Steve McClaren and feel he is completely out of his league coaching England. But he does have one thing right: Friendlies need to be … Continue reading

US Drawn With Argentina at Copa America

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

The rest of the draw will be made later today. This is certainly a challenge for the US Men but if we do send a true “A” side (which has not been indicated by the USSF) this could prove to … Continue reading

“The result was unjust,” Hugo Sanchez said. “This is a unique game in that you can deserve to win and still lose.We deserved to win and they did not.”

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

Hugo Sanchez is a living contradiction. In same time he aspired to be a great tactical manager he constantly criticized every recent Mexico manager until he landed himself the job. On one hand he marvels at the play of the … Continue reading

US-Mexico Thoughts

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

Pre Game Thoughts: Nice to see ESPN with the big game set up and production for this one after the minor league shame of the Denmark TV broadcast. When is this game actually going to begin?????????????? ESPN has no shame…….this … Continue reading

Not Really a Friendly

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

Bob Bradley sure wants to lose that interim label badly. Otherwise I see no reason for him to have selected what is essentially an “A” side with a few younger players for the friendly versus Mexico on Wednesday night in … Continue reading

USA- Denmark Live Blog

Posted on by Kartik Krishnaiyer

Bruce Arena and Eric Wynalda in the same booth? This should be a real doosie…… I didn’t understand ESPN 2′s profile on Jimmy Conrad. It was totally incomplete. Okay it was a teaser but didn’t appear that way. Rob Stone … Continue reading
