    Agreed. He and Sammy Ochoa were the bright spots for us there.

    I thought he showed a lot of potential in the Toulong Tournament.

    Yup Phillip to show Shea off for Man U and the other Euro clubs no doubt. Look forward to seeing him tomorrow, and hopefully in the Olympics.

    Brek Shea was called up according to the 3rd Degree.

    Phillip good point but I have actually heard some around MLS say that the club game is gaining precedence in this country and that the national team is on its way down and out and MLS cannot be bothered with re arranging its schedule for the National Team. Part of what I have been told is unlike Europe or Latin america were the press is all over the game, here if a match is moved to accomodate the national team those with printed tickets will likely show up on the wrong date and/or time. MLS cannot afford that so they choose to ignore international breaks and complicate the ability to release players. Arrogance yes, but arrogance with a justification at least from their end.

    MLS scheduling is why Cooper is not playing in this game.

    MLS continues to strong arm the USSF, and it’s damn time that the USSF put the MLS in it’s place.

    Donovan’s brilliance may cost us a legit shot at winning the cup (I’m an optimist) because US Soccer will never fire Bradley if Donovan keeps us winning. I’d never root for us to lose, but it may take an embarrassing loss to get us a real coach.

    Bobby, I’ll bet you any amount that an American player other than Freddy scores in this game.

    It’s pretty obvious that Cooper didn’t get called in because of MLS’s ridiculous scheduling.

    okay boys and girls

    what american player listed above actually scores?

    If not Freddy who?

    NOBODY!

    Recent quote from Paul Gardner the dean of American Soccer writers:

    “Bob Bradley is skilled at producing workmanlike teams. But they play banal soccer — if we didn’t know that previously (those of us who suffered through his years at the MetroStars sure as hell did) we do now. Pedestrian soccer rules, and Banality Bob is saved, on occasions, only by the flair and brilliance of Donovan. As long as Donovan is around, there is hope of something more rewarding than Bocanegra’s crunching fouls or Michael Bradley’s late tackles. The question that needs answering is why — at this late stage in the Great American Soccer Boom — the hopes for skilled, international-level play rest so heavily on one player. Is there an obvious replacement for Donovan waiting to take over? I don’t know of one — yet there should, by now, be three of four such candidates.”

    Does this squad do anything to solve this problem? Think about that as we move forward? Do we have any creative forces besides Donovan, and how if this side going to break down anyone? I’d like to see what John Thorrington to do in this match.

    POED, Completly agree with you regarding Cooper! This match is the perfect opportunity to give Cooper extended minutes.

  13. Bob Bradley is a Wanker

    June 20, 2008 at 2:13 pm

    I’m still confused as to why Cooper isn’t around? Rolfe and Barrett? Are you joking?

    Chris Rolfe is a glorified winger, just an MLS player at best. Barrett? Did Bradley watch last night?

    The thought of Chad Barrett being called in for a World Cup qualifer before Kenny Cooper should scare and shock people.
