It's probably all been said before but I am too lazy to scroll back to read every post, so here is my two cents worth.

I do not pity Panama. Every spot should be earned on merit...they had the ability to earn more points during the hex and they did not. I mean they drew with Jamaica at home 0-0! We did what we are supposed to, play the game to win, as we expected them to.

In the future, if the roles are reversed and we need help in the final match to get to the WC, I certainly hope Mexico will remember this...but sadly I think they would rather see us eliminated. But one can hope.

So hats off to JK and the USMNT for their professional integrity. And to rewrite the end of a Mexican chant...MEXICO MEXICO HA HA HA

For what its worth ESPN gives Mexico an 85% chance of going through to the World Cup.

Mexico fired Vucetich and Miguel Herrera (Current America Manager) will take over for the November playoffs. This is hilarious.

First, Herrera has America playing extremely well but he's not leaving America for Mexico, he's just picking up the role of national team manager as a hobby in his free time. I don't know how much he'll be able to focus on El Tri as America continues its push towards the Apertura playoffs.

I don't understand how any coach can expect to succeed when they're only given a few days with the team before the manager carousel ride continues. The Federation has lost their mind and now unfortunately for them, they no longer have any sort of buffer to ease in a new coach.

I said it before but Mexico really needs a foreign coach that won't get bogged down by the politics of their Federation.

Pretty smart of him not to quit his regular coaching gig...if he fails to win the play-off he has something to fall back on. If he wins the playoff then perhaps they will come to another arrangement.

Perhaps I can nominate a foreign manager for their consideration: Paolo DiCanio

So an update on Mexico making Herrera official. The deal is that Club America has loaned Herrera to the national team to cover the November qualifiers. Even if Mexico qualifies there's no guarantee that Herrera will stay on as he still is contracted to Club America. We could be looking at a fifth coach in three months by December.

My Bob Bradley dream is still alive!

Can I have some of what you are smoking?

EPL...are you serious? Yes, Bradley is a good coach and I do think he could do the job but who would hire him? For an American to get this kind of coaching gig his resume would have to almost walk on water and there are plenty of other candidates with similar experience who are not American (Read from well thought of footballing nations) looking for these types of jobs.

Personally, if he wants to stay abroad, his best options are probably in the mid to lower leagues in Europe. Perhaps running a team in the SPL would be a nice place for him after his Egyptian adventure).

Landon doesn't think Mexico would have kept fighting if the US was on the verge of collapsing and I think he's right. Not too much in this but hey, we're thin on US news at the moment so there you have it.
