Grant it I didn't focus on him much but I thought Bradley was playing well until the give away that lead to the penalty. I guess after that he started pressing himself more to,make a play and it just wouldn't happen. He definitely was not good after that though.

There were only a few instances where I didn't feel like the US was the better team. You have one of the better players in the world that you mainly only heard his name while they were trying to hide him from the camera for injury or the penalty that someone else got.

I am admittedly still new to the game so this is me trying to learn. At what point does a player usually earn a yellow for foul accumulation? I am sure a lot depends on the severity but Perez had to have had over half their fouls. If having 6 or 7 is normal then that makes sense to me. I just figured it was more around 4.

It doesn't matter who the def mid is if we can't create and finish chances.
The problem isn't bradley had a bad game, the problem is he looked like he was chasing the game because he was too slow and caused a lot of bad giveaways.
Jermaine has better vision going forward and better instincts in final 3rd.

My worry of this game was Colombia sat back because they knew we wouldnt create much. Such happened for the most part.

Us played a solid game. Colombia scored on two set pieces. We played well and I don't think we played badly. Cameron is our best DM

The worst thing Juergen could do is try to overcorrect this loss against Costa Rica. We had a few mental lapses but we don't need to make a major shift in formation.

Since there's only a few days before the next game we have to imagine there will be changes with Nagbe and perhaps Pulisic getting the start in the next game. Nevertheless, we should continue to build on the past three games.

I think Wood was the attacker subbed in the second half because Juergen intends to play him in all three group games.

Just got back to my hotel we had our chances but Colombia was just better next game is a must win a tie and we are out most likely and hopefully so is JK most USA fans were against Jurgen he should start nagbe right of the bat Jones is done he and Becker man should not be there won't be surprised if kitchen gets the start with Bradley and nagbe . And OK yes Bradley had a bad game but mainly because he can't play with Jones he will excel with nagbe no doubt. Also USA fans were outnumbered big time by Colombians absolutely crazy and many actually travelled from Colombia. They just beat us in the field and in the stands.

Just back from the game. I didn't like the body language on the field. We were frustrated with one another and completely disjointed in our attack. Watching the game live, the movement off the ball was awful in the attack. With the lack of options and runs up top we
played so negative, continually cycling the ball back on the flanks. Honestly, we probably could have played very direct and been move successful with Wood and Zardes up top. Dempsey was dropping so deep, just neutering our attack. In some ways I think JK left Deuce in for the full game to prove a point. Basically, state your case for me to keep starting you. It was poor. I also thought there was no need for MB to collect the ball so close to Brooks and Cameron. They can both make a nice pass out of the back. Still a long way to go. The games are tight and swing on 3-4 pivotal plays. Cameron is caught knapping and the unfortunate/naive handball on Yeddy. Our anemic attack couldn't over come the mistakes. I'm ready to move on from Deuce and Jones

Its the same story every time.......

Klinsmann sucks, and his shit roster will be the downfall in this tournament...

- Like I've said a million f**kin times, Dempsey should be a sub
- Bradley sucks against south american/technical teams and shouldn't start
- Bradley/Jones combo has never worked
- Bedoya sucks
- Zardes isn't a winger
- Why is grahm zusi on this roster ?

Without Villafana, Morris, Kenny Saief, and Nguyen, this team won't do SHIT!

Actually I agree is time to bench Dempsey maybe he will come in with more fire if he is a sub. Let it ride throw wood, zardes, pulisic up top if morris was there I would have him there also. Like I said before won't be surprised if we see a new line up maybe kitchen, birbaum, Castillo, besler, nagbe, pulisic.

Those players would make a difference?
Villafana- not good enough for Mexico (pretty much said he'd play for them if asked)
Saief- not good enough for Israel
Morris- less than 10 professional matches in career
Nguyen- middling mls guy until team brought in tons of talent. Already past his prime.

Seriously Nguyen is behind jones, bedoya, and nagbe, and Bradley in the cam role.
Morris isn't ahead of Dempsey or wood.
Villafana isn't better than fab.
Sayef isn't clearly ahead of zardes. Definitely not ahead of pulisic. There's a reason he hasn't gone to a big euro club yet.

We need to start getting guys like pulisic, Lennon, ccv, epb, miazga. We shouldn't be bringing in 23-26 yr old guys who will never play champs league group stage games. That's what us has been the last 4 cycles. We should be focusing on guys who are better than those. Unfortunately those guys aren't ready yet. Maybe in 2018 they'll be ready. 2022 is the year we should have title as the goal.

If ppl call for Bradley to sit, they should call Fabjo too. Offers nothing to attack from LB. When he has space he cuts back instead. And defensively he is a liability. I know he's great talent but why turn back, it's like he doesn't believe in himself or doesn't want to take risks. I'm down for Castillo on lb and get Fabjo higher. And deuce, sorry but you need to stop whinning.
