Glad you liked it.

USA tied El Sal in their last group game. USA is out of the competition & will not participate in the Olys.

NJL (Huge surprise, considering the run up to this comp. Evidently, changing a teams style & attitude comes at a price. This does not bode well for the USA in this summers WC2014 CONCACAF qualifying. The U23s missing the Olys is one thing....the USMNT missing the World Cup is something else entirely.)

There are no words Neil...other than EPIC FAIL.

This team was definately outcoached on a number of levels. Caleb Porter's time with this team is going to be frightfully short, as there is no way this team can go forward with him at the helm. In particular the back line was horrendous. The only good things was the return to form of Freddy Adu, and the emergence of Terrence Boyd and Joe Corona. Other than that...EPIC FAIL. :mad::mad:

Yep. Gonna have to wear red and fake the words to Oh Canada for awhile. It'll be easy in one way, but tough in another way...:(

NJL (watched the Canada U23s play the Ft Lauderdale Strikers about a week ago. They were not impressive, losing to a Div II NASL side that was still trying to sort things out in preseason. Still, all things considered, good luck to them for the rest of the tournament.....EPIC FAIL, indeed...:o ...)

The great Giorgio Chinaglia died yesterday. Just about the best finisher I've ever seen:

A legend in USA and Italian soccer...

Fans of Manu U, yes. Fans of Man City, not so much...;)

The NASL started it's season Saturday. The only 2 important games had the Tampa Bay Rowdies losing in Puerto Rico 1-0 and the Ft Lauderdale Strikers winning their home opener 1-0 over FC Edmonton on a 2nd half gem by Andy Herron. The Strikers lost rookie forward Aly Hassan, playing in his 1st pro game, to a red card in the 30th minute and still played well enough to win.

Next week FC Edmonton is in Tampa Bay to defeat the Rowdies and the Strikers are at home to play last years champion Minnesota Stars. If they play with the same intensity as they did last week an 11 man Striker squad should win. We'll see.

Just wanted to add that I went to the Real Madrid vs Málaga game back in March in Madrid. My seat was in the second highest row from the top of the stadium. They call this part of the stadium vomitorio.:lol: No kidding. I should have taken a picture of the sign.

Piermario Morosini an Italian 2nd devision footballer died yesterday after collapsing on the field. He suffered a heart attack less than one month after Fabrice Muamba also had a heart attack. He is still in hospital.
