but he's paid to be new pirlo....
Lol that's even worse. And Brocchi used to replace Pirlo too.

Flamini should be Milan's new "I'll bench for everyone in the mid because I don't have balls to be the new Gattuso/Ambrosini neither skilled to be the new Pirlo/Seedorf".

What shocked me was sub in general I would have brought Feilhaber (creative CM.... i love benny TBH. Only ball playing american CM. no wonder he was born in Brazil) and then when goal was gained brought Edu but you see what im saying
I thought that Maurice Edu was kind of an american Essien, being Bradley an american Lampard and Clark an american Makelele, if you know what I mean.

Maybe Bob saw something that we don't. I just didn't think that he should take off Onyewuo because of a game under the expects.

again you offered no dempsey dive. Just an unwarranted claim. I love dempsey, i know his limitations, he's not amazing... but he's not a diver.
Then watch it again ... Dempsey punching the floor as though he's broken a leg during the PK. Acting in the truest Latin/Portuguese/Spanish sense

LOL! Are you seriously saying it WASNT a pk? He moved ball wonderfully and defender got no part of it. That was a pk that would make kaka proud

Nah ... it was a penalty. Dempsey's acting just made sure it was. Btw it wasn't the first time he went down in the box moaning and punching the ground - don't know why his cheatin ass didn't get booked

You've lost perspective with your anti-Americanism. That rates as probably the 286th most blatant dive in the tournament. And its hard to call it a dive when it IS a penalty. Not to mention he clearly punched the ground with a fist pump to celebrate the penalty.... poor example my zingaro friend

by the way, I did see a dive from Altidore today (keep in mind, EVERY SINGLE TEAM has had a dive this tournament. Is it even cheating anymore? A shame that it seems even more prevalent than ever before).

You just look like an idiot for picking Dempsey out. The man is the least likely to dive. I'm glad you're the only clown who thinks this, or else I would think I'm losing my mind.

So has the WC helped "Soccer" in the US? I wouldn't be against having the 2018 WC there tbh. Seems like it's got a bit of momentum so having a WC will really help.

Obviously this is assuming the WC won't come to England.

Those who latched on after the Algeria match are mostly lost. Of course there will be a few hangers-on (like I mentioned earlier in the thread, I know quite a few people who were enthralled by the Istanbul final and are now massive Liverpool supporters)

The core group of big football fans will slowly grow, but not necessarily from the World Cup. It's growing because the generation that is starting to come of age is the first one to really follow European football. It will grow on college campuses and in urban America, regardless of what the World Cup has done.

World Cup IN the US would be the next big step towards significant growth. I think it would be massive this time around.

I told you Ghana was good. Seriously they have talent, geez, even with their best player out, their performance today (bar let's say the first 20 minutes of the 2nd half and the last few minutes when they did a wonderful time wasting-I can't blame them for that-) was incredible. They have to be more careful with the fouls and marking, easily could've gotten a red card at the start of the 2nd half, and they did lots of fouls near the area (and there was one inside the area before the pk that the ref didn't call, but that could've been a pk). But everything else was worthy.

Agree on the Ricardo Clark being a wasted sub, don't understand why he started. Also, not sure why Jozy was subbed, cause the minute he was, they lost all presence going forward, sure his finish was terrible, but seriously the man at least brought lots of danger in the zone.

Its never gonna help when you can make more money playing basketball or baseball.
for example: kobe makes around 30 mill a year usd. not including sponsors
highest paid soccer player in the mls gets around 900,000 a year

A WC in USA would be nice. Their production (money) make it worth.

I liked the Atlanta Olympics closing cerimony.

Eh, aren't the best attendances records for a WC for 1994? The thing is that I don't think FIFA will like to keep the WC out of Europe for so long, and that TV schedules issue again (players bitched about it back in 86 and 94 that they had to play at noon on summer, just cause that's prime time for Europe). And I also don't think they'll keep the WC in America for 2 tournaments in a row. But the US has modern stadiums (not much investment needed), with lots of capacities, there won't be trouble keeping the stadiums full, per se it's a country that doesn't need much investment to bring that much people to an event.

After getting some bad news from my sis, this game was about the last thing on my mind. Disappointed by the loss, but I'm still proud of them.

Congrats to Ghana, btw. The one I was impressed with was Kingson, he was a brick wall today.

Oh for the ones drunk on American haterade...I wish I had something of wit to say or some cutsy pic or youtube vid to post, but right now...my give a fuck is busted! Sorry charlies, maybe next time.
