Liverpool's new owners are appealing to fans for patience because of the club's poor start to the season.

Jamaica 2 v 1 USA. Jamaica's 1st win vs USA. Jamaica 1st in group with 7 points. USA tied with Guatemala for 2nd with 4 points. USA & Jamaica continue with the 2nd leg in the USA on Tuesday. For the USA it is a must win.

EPIC FAIL by the USMNT. I don't care if the Mexican ref wasn't good or that the pitch was terrible, you adapt and you overcome. Klinsmann deserves a lot of the blame for putting together a lineup that was bound to have problems because he started 3 d-mids. No possession, no width= bad result.

If there ever was a must win game, next Tuesday is it.

The anti-Klinsmann element on BS is at full howl. He's badly underestimated the difficulty of advancing in CONCACAF. If the USA does not advance to Brazil 2014 he's probably gone.

ETA: OTOH, the USA U-20 WNT just won their age group WC in Japan defeating Germany 1-0. It was German's 1st goal conceded during the tournament, and their only defeat, plus they had defeated the USA 0-3 during tournament group play. Congrats to the USA ladies for a job well done....:)....

I've read some of that stuff, such a change from a couple of weeks ago after the USA beat Mexico in Azteca. :rolleyes:

But I also think you are right about Klinsmann underestimating CONCACAF. Lots of eyes looking at Klinsy and what lineup he'll put out there on the 11th. :cool:

A loss Tuesday night and they are in deep, deep do-do. We've never won in Jamaica, although before the other night we'd get a draw, and Jamaica has never won here. Here's hoping that happens Tuesday.

You're right. It will be interesting to see what kind of team he puts on the field to start the game. As interesting to see how he handles his subs, too.

it's okay.. the squeaked out a win.. which is good considering they didn't have some key players.. I have selfish reasons for the Americans to do well as it likely means we will get more games on TV :P

England tied - and were lucky to do that in the 87th minute from Lampard.. made more difficult as England was down to 10 men due to my beloved Gerrard ( I won't mention anything about LFC as I'm in a major depression over their demise)

Still don't know the score of the Canada game :confused:

USA 1 v 0 Jamaica.

The USA dominated but could only score once on a free kick by Herculez Gomez in the 2nd half. That's enough for the 3 points. The USA is now tied with Guatemala for 1st in group. All 3 teams, the USA, Guatemala & Jamaica have identical 2-1-1 records for 7 point in group, Jamaica drops to 3rd place on goal differential.

The USA plays at Antigua & Barbuda on 10/12/12 & finishes against Guatemala on 10/16/12. This win puts them in the thick of a 3 way race to be one of the top 2 finishers in the group that will advance to the CONCACAF hexagonal final round. Three of the six teams in the Hex will advance to Brazil 2014.


GO USA!!!

Well, they bent the posts three times, this game could easily have been 4-0. Klinsi smartened up and played Zusi and Cherundolo on the right side and they were very dangerous. Which is the wide play they were missing last week.

Hopefully Landon and Bradley will be healthy for the next two games and the USA can post the 6 points they need to ensure they get through to the hex.
