    Agreed with most of the posts above, but especially Sir Guy.

    Not only is it a dumb question because the USA was experimenting in friendlies while England was competing in a serious match, but also you have to look at how both teams fared in comparison to how you would expect them to perform.

    A draw against Montenegro is a fairly bad result for England (although by no means the apocolypse many people are making it out to be). On the other hand, a draw against both Colombia and Poland would be a pretty respectable result for the US, even if they’d fielded their strongest XI.

    A yellow card for the question, Gaffer. You knew the result before asking. 😉

    England were always going to come out “ahead” if for no other reason than than the expectation factor. I have made the point before: Generally speaking, USA fans have hopes. England fans have expectations. There is a distinct and vital difference.

    If we have a draw or two we can look at it and see how we might have done better, but not being a world power in the sport we are more able to view a draw as a positive result. I think most England fans, rightly or wrongly, look at draws as defeats pretty much regardless of time, place or opponent.

    Like the others have said…at least the USA attempted some new thing and brought in new players. Why wouldn’t they do this now when the results mean absolutely nothing?

    I was under the illusion that The Gaffer knew something about soccer. Apparently not. This isn’t even close. Bob Bradley played an experimental side with experimental formations for both FRIENDLIES. England, by a country mile, had a worse week.

    Has to be England. USA games meant absolutely nothing.

    This is a terrible question. Capello played his best starting XI for a qualifying match – a match that counts for something. They played like crap. End of story. Bradley heavily experimented in BOTH games – friendly games – using different formations on both occasions, also capping new players for the US. Not even a contest. England was abysmal.
