    Remarkable how difficult a simple pass in the midfield looked at times. Numerous balls which weren't even contested on Sat looked like invitations to WIDE OPEN counter runs tonight.

    Mexico beat the same Brazil squad today, 2-0.

    US ties Canada, 0-0.

    Was the Scotland game a mirage?

    Maybe Scotland is just REALLY REALLY bad?

    I don't think Scotland was a mirage, but this game was definitely the worst of the three. No heart, no coordinate attack, overall sloppy play. Castillo was lucky the ref called a phantom foul to void the goal. What was he thinking? He should have just conceded a throw in. We teach 5 yr olds to never play it toward the box on defense. I hope Fabian Johnson gets better soon.

    Well, they start counting for keepsies tonight. Antigua and Barbuda SHOULD be an easy victory, but @ Guatemala on Tuesday will be tough (as playing @ Guatemala always is).

    Would be nice if we could actually see the Guatemala game. The way CONCACAF handles tv rights stinks on ice.

    Pretty sure ESPN3 is broadcasting it online. EDIT: Just realized you said Guatemala, not A&B.

    Yep. The US only controls home games. On the road we're at the mercy of the other country for showing the game. The Guatemalans seem to think they'll get more money from pay per view rather than licensing the rights to an American network.

    For the March to Qatar thread in a few years:
    http://www.greenwichtime.com/sports/...rs-3619824.php

    Basically Australia played against Oman in a WC qualifer. It was 104 degrees and the ref had to stop the game twice in the first half for water breaks.
    Nice job FIFA.

    Pretty sloppy. Obviously I'll take the win, but that was uninspired for the most part.

    Donovan and Gomez stood out. Gooch was awful.

    Weather may have been a factor. You're right about Gooch. If he can't handle Antigua and Barbuda's forwards, he doesn't need to be on the field.

    I thought the goal scored was a nice parting gift for Bocanegra as well, but I don't think we'll be that fortunate.

    It must be difficult to know how good your team is in this WCQ group. You have Mexico and the US....that is it. It's like if you were in Europe and you had Germany and Italy...and then Armenia, Belgium and Finland.
