Just got home
US scored it’s 2 while I was on the causeway and couldn’t check Twitter- hotel big time when I got to metry

FFed to the goals (I’ll go back and watch the whole match tomorrow), but MAN both goals showed some beautiful transition from D to O and some very organized space occupying
the mckennie goal was smarts creating luck
go back and watch the dude the ball deflected off, he saw the ball going in a few seconds before it was actually struck - Ha!

LOL!

Nah, man. I'm good with the U.S. winning. I got dual citizenship :hihi:
I'm even happy that they won in front of a true U.S. crowd. I thought it was funny when McKinnie made the shush sign when he scored his goal, because the "U.S.A." chants were loud.

But the MX defense is terrible. It is. Trust me on that one :hihi:

Side note: I didn't realize Tim Weah was the son of George Weah... great soccer genes.
I'll trust you. Lol

But then I think how did you not know Tim is the son of George??

It just didn't click. Every time I saw his name I thought"huh, his last name is the same as George Weah" but never made the connection.

Old age is a sumoabeech.

Strongly disagree.
Really what US team was ever better?

We have never been able to play out of the backfield. We have rarely if ever had a competent goalie who could distribute the ball without punting. Maybe, Tony Meola on a good day, but those teams certainly were not better. We have never had a midfield development game. The entirety of US soccer has been reliant on long box crosses and over the top runs for far too long.

Wow. This team is just on another level from anything we’ve ever had.

Yep, our last decent WC run our best players were both in their 30's....Our best players on this team are all between 18-23 and they are far superior to the likes of Dempsey and Donovan (and I loved both those guys)....

Just saw the replay of that foul on Aaronson
that ****** ****** needs to sit multiple matches
that was complete horse ****
and weston getting a yellow in there was even more horse ****
it was unfortunate that the Ref inserted himself in-between the players and didn't see that rake in eyes.

Tensions high in that game - I really think they got to around 60th and thought they could win, and within 10 min, those hopes were dashed.

will hav to see if that dude gets a game or two suspension

If I heard right, the next match suspensions are McKinnie, Aaronson and Steffen?

Thanks. I meant Robinson, but you mentioned Aaronson and my brain locked in.

Just found out what Pulisic’s shirt meant
Stadium PA played the sing at the end of the match

evidently yeldin and weah came up with the idea and roped CP in

also it’s hardly been mentioned any that I hear, but mckennie and cp clearly had some mirror routine mocked up and they did it during the goal celebration

Interesting development happening here. Hard to imagine CP without a long-term home. 2 yrs here, 2 years there - doesnt seem fair to his ability.
