Jordan Morris gonna be the American Rooney who can score many goals at a world cup unlike Rooney himself

Johannsson still isn't getting any service. He did have one chance to score today where as Zardes blew 5 chances to score.

Woods goal was #10 on sportscenter. A bunch of lame baseball plays made it in front of him.

Fun updated fact:

USMNT has 6 wins in 14 European road games under Klinsmann.

U.S. had 6 wins in 28 Euro road games from 1991-2010.

I would like a Dempsey with Zardes or Morris up top. Not the same speed as Martins but they would have similar game style. Of course regarding distance because Martins is a beast. Then Becker man and Kitchen to let Bradley do his thing slotting in kitchen towards the side of the fullback that would be allowe to attack more. How he did when he played oarkhurst and beastly. One went and one stayed and form like a defense of three while a mix converd more than the other.

Amen! Beckerman's presence was immediately felt.

Unrelated to your post and I haven't read through the full thread yet but I have to say that I think Bradley was the best player on the pitch for either side today. I could imagine a Bundesliga side inquiring with Toronto this summer.


Bradley has to be to the soccer world what Sarunas Jasekevicius was to the basketball world. Clearly talented, ok some limitations, but to me, in my estimation, definitely capable of putting together world class performances. And several NBA teams wondering why he doesn't fit on their team. Appreciated in more familiar circles. (hint: the styles were diffferent and an NBA team wasn't going to exclusively serve a foreigner, at least not in 2000, middle 2000 sure.)

If Brad Evans could have played RB against the rest of the world the way that he plays it against Germany (yesterday and at RFK In 2013), he would have been the man for the position against elite attacking opposition.

Much more exciting team when Dempsey and Altidore aren't starting!


I'm on board with this!!! And that's frightening =( These are two of our best players but we never seen to get the dynamics with them as we do with Yedlin, B Wood and Morris. In your minds, can you see Dempsey, Altidore doing the moves and runs and positioning that these guys did these past two games. I know it's only two games, but just remember Altidore's touch against Spain, the turn and shot. He needs to outmass a defender, I think it was Capdevilla, and a lucky ricochet off of Casillas.

if anything b wood is the Charlie Davies archetype we were hoping for from 2009 to now. W/o the self destructive tendencies (watch me come to find out tomorrow Wood does small time arms deals in northern Africa)

I like the comparison to Saras and I give you extra points for choosing a Lithuanian. Saras was one of the best players in the Euroleague with Maccabi and when combining with Anthony Parker they were unstoppable. Similar to Bradley at Toronto there was all kinds of chatter about how he wasn't proving himself against the best players in the world. Unlike Bradley who was doing well at Roma (granted he faced an increased level of competition for his spot) and made the move home for a paycheck, Saras struggled to find playing time with the Pacers. Still when it came time to put on the Lietuva jersey, you didn't want to go against Jasikevicius. Always a beast for the national team.

I like the parallels and they're two of my favorite players.

He was an AMAZING player, he single handedly pooed on our faces twice, one we got away with, the other time we were dealt a loss we deserved. Just unconscious. He was gritty, he was tough, more skilled than Dellavadova, maybe less sturdy on defense. Could totally run an NBA team. But we have so many home grown talents on that level, it was hard for him to break through. Unless some coach was willing to take a chance on guys like that.

Yep, his defending was poor which makes him well suited for the NBA. The NBA didn't have coaches like Blatt and Messina when Saras came over or it could have worked out differently for Saras.
