I read about it in the paper this morning. I really feel bad for him, this close to the WC and he has an injury. I hope he can get better and hopefully join us in Germany at least to watch if he still can't play

I feel the exact same way. Except I think he IS bad. If we have to play Berhalter in the tournament, all I can think about is Agoos in '02.

He did lead and captain his team to promotion to the 1.Bundesliga this season. And he's not going to re-sign for them so that must mean he has other Bundesliga teams interested in him. On the other hand, he's slow and mistake-prone. Practically all my nightmares invovle Berhalter marking Milan Baros.

Does anyone else think we should drop Bease from the starting line-up? Suggesting something like that a couple of years ago would have been deemed heretical. However, his recent form - for both club and country - has been less-than-spectacular. He's playing well defensively because he's ridiculously quick and hustles back. But where did his 1-v-1 dribbling go? The Bease is turning into Frankie Hejduk before our very eyes. If both Reyna and O'Brien are healthy, I think he has to be dropped.

--------------Reyna--------O'Brien--------------
-----Donovan-----------------------Convey-----

Convey is just playing too well to keep him off the starting line-up. He's playing with confidence fueled by Reading's dream season. Even if O'Brien or Reyna aren't healthy, my guess is Bruce will plug in Mastroeni, rather than doing a diamond midfield:

----------------------Reyna---------------------
-------Beasley----------------------Convey------
---------------------Donovan--------------------

I think the Reyna-O'Brien-Donovan-Convey midfield with Johnson and McBride up top is the best we can do. Off the bench we'll have Dempsey as an attacking substitution and Beasley as more of a defensive substitution.

Johnson was awesome against Venezuela yesterday. I really wanted him to score but he put in a sweet assist for Dempsey. The only thing I didnt like about his game is that he falls too easily to the ground on 50/50 balls. He is still young though and can develop more strength in the future.

You're right, Twellman deserves to be there....in place of Josh Wolff.

I actually though we should have brought Adu in place of Ching to sit on the bench and get a taste of the atmosphere. And of course TT instead of Wolff.

My grades for the Latvia game:

Keller - 7

Lewis - 5.5 (made a couple of bad giveaways and got caught out of position a couple of times)
Conrad - 6.5 (a little bit better than in the Venezuela game)
Pope - 6.5 (quiet game, didn't have much to do)
Cherundolo - 7.5 (the positive definitely outweighs the negative in this game)

Mastroeni - 7.5 (he's going to make it hard for Arena to keep him out of the starting line-up)
O'Brien - 7 (not much more you could have asked from him; now all he needs to do is not get injured)
Beasley - 5 (not a terrible game, but he looked mediocre on a night where every other US midfielder looked good)
Donovan - 7.5 (did a good job of running the show)

Johnson - 7 (he may not have scored, but he was a pain in the ass for Latvia all game long)
McBride - 7 (solid, nice goal)

I like the look of the USA team. They looked very strong, hungry and up for it. Brian McBride is a great player in my opinion. One of my favourite strikers in the EPL. He reminds me a lot of Teddy Sherringham at his peak. Good luck in Germany USA. I really hope you go far.

@ Run DMB......I owe you an apology man, for my very rude attitude towards you a while ago. I'm sorry dude and I hope you will accept that from me. No excuses, i was a prick.

Two problems that I have:

1 - Our finishing still sucks.
2 - Why are the players getting so tired with 25-30 minutes to go ?

Because Frankie isn't there to show them how running yourself into the ground for 90 minutes is done.




Okay, I'll leave now.

I rescind the comments I made about Ching earlier. While he may not have fully deserved his call-up, tactically he was the right choice.
