People a coach cannot score the goals. This game proved, to me anyway, that Wondo will never make it as an international player. We dominated but last 1/3 no one had a clue. Subs were better but not by much.


Who decided Wondo be a starter and on the roster in the first place? And we dominated a C squad Canada, you might as well said they dominated a Division II college team. Thats not saying very much.

Zusi is overated, He doesnt belong it the starting XI and will definitely get schooled against a brazil or france


I cannot agree more...

Absolutely ridiculous.

It was a friendly with our C team!

It was a big mistake that Adu didn't get called to camp and yes Mix should have started. But the result of the game doesn't matter. The point of that friendly was to experiment.

I see how anyone can take you seriously in calling for JK's head when you think CALEB PORTER should succeed him.

So i thank you for that friend.

I think Porter is a definite candidate for successor, but there's no need to sack JK. Not yet. This year will tell. Dolcem is exactly right - it was B v C or whatever. You folks really cannot expect this much from a game like that.

So majority rules? Just because more people think something doesn't make it right. After Porters debacle with the Olympics I have zero confidence in his ability.

Also I am so sick and tired of all of the people so confident Adu is the freaking answer. JK talks all the time about wanting tough gritty players. I can not think of two ways to less describe Adu. He is marshmallow soft and refuses to or is incapable of playing defense.

I think everybody as a whole is tired of seeing Beckerman and the other 30 something MLS players, but to try and condemn JK before qualifying is complete is ridiculous and short sighted.

Again you forget its just your opinion my opinion and so on..if your to dumb to realize that go onto someone elses blog and get on their nerves. If i believe that JK sucks, Adu should be on the roster, and Beckerman will get torched in the first game thats my right to do so, WTF are you to think you can tell me other wise or the majority of others who believe the same as me? I think your a clown ass for believing in beckerman but hey...thats your right to do so Enjoy your day.

So what's the deal w/ Feilhaber? I thought he was great several years ago. He's one of the few players in the US pool who has the skill to hold the ball under pressure, show some vision, make a good pass.

I haven't followed him at all in the MLS for the last few years. Has he just not looked good? Did he never fully recover from the injury (knee, I think) a few years ago. Does he have Adu syndrome? Is he a headcase? Does he not play defense? Is he one of those great passers that looks average when he's on an average team and only shines around a group of stars that know how to make a damn run?

I thought he was the best player on the filed last night, a/ the caveat that that's not saying much. Every time I've seen him play (admittedly, only a few times in the last several years in a USMNT uniform) he's displayed unique skills like an Adu, Donovan, JOB (yeah, that's going back), Mix, (and no, I'm not saying he's the same type of player as these guys).

Oh and on a completely different note, who's the numbnut that said on this thread JK is sending a message to Jozy to bulk up? The guy's a freaking beast.

When he came on he def made some sort of difference with his creativity though nothing came from it. Right now I just think he's in a rough patch, I think when your on a crappy team sometimes you just drop form, thats my opinion anyway. I think once he starts with Sporting KC and has some good forwards up top his form will start to improve to what he used to be. Give it some time, we def need him IF we make the WC.

"So what's the deal w/ Feilhaber?"

feilhaber is a unique talent - id say he is closest thing to a pure 10 we have right now. (i know some of you feel its adu - lets please not have that debate right now)
the thing is he is just not quite good enough to get away with just doing '10' duties. yes, id say he suffers from 'adu syndrome' - he has just not been consistent throughout his career.

he had early opportunities in bundesliga and EPL, but just could not stick. since then he has been inconsistent in denmark and MLS. attitude may be a factor, i cant really say.

all that being said, a good start to MLS season may see him back in the picture by the summer or so. right now i cant see him getting minutes over kljestan - who wont start but may come of bench

Feilhaber is caught in a numbers game with players who play in better leagues...and as we have seen in JK's reign, the Bundesliga will win every time

I don't want to pass judgement on jk until after wc2014

WOW! now that is a REALLY scary thought! we, as fans, can not be so naive as to give coaches a pass for 4 years, as if the games in between have no meaning or relevance. there are no "meaningless friendlies". every game provides clues.

anyone back me up?

on to canada - this was just more of the same and yes, i am honestly afraid.

BRAD EVANS over BENNY???
NO ONE thought brad evans even needed to be on this roster, let alone start this game. evans provides something that bradley, jones, williams, edu, beckerman do not? completely inexcusable. he did it last january as well, starting larentowitz once and clark once despite jones starting both games. JK has NO desire to groom someone with true CAM capabilities. v canada his options were:
- zusi - has been best CAM in MLS last 2 years. he wants to use him wide? fine
- feilhaber - obviously impressed more than diskerud. fine. START HIM!!! coming off lackluster season with NE but lets face it, NE is a joke of a football club right now. i wont be surprised to see him flourish with SKC.
(kljestan omission from team = biggest fail of JK era)

BRAD DAVIS over J GATT???
EVERYONE thought gatt should start this game. no taylor twellman, 31 is NOT "still young", if you have not yet broken through for MNT. that ship has sailed. IF you do not have better options, ok. but you have probably the brightest U23 prospect who happens to coming off a very productive season in europe. AND the program is desperately short on true wingers. why is there even a question? START HIM!!!

JK is getting desperately close to the relegation zone[/quote]

Ummm no.

So why does JK get so much praise for his 2012 record when they were all Friendly's then?

Why is it that when the Jan. Camp roster came out many people were upset that others were not called in, and now we tie v a team that just got crushed a few days before, while we were the fresher team?

Gatt is nothing but speed, but if you have no technical skill to switch the ball with your feet what good are you? If you have to be Benny Feilhaber, and your screaming at your forwards to actually move forward.....um there is a problem. JK is turning this team backwards...if we are going to be proud of friendly and making camps, then so be it.

And why the HELL were they emphasizing FITNESS to such a degree; team had no tactics or cohesion. Jurgen is such a F*CKING IDIOT. And extended from that GULATI is an idiot for going after Jurgen.


You're the real F*CKING IDIOT troll.

Porter needs to be successful in MLS first, I think he can do it.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
