    Just a few items of note; for one thing another footie scandal in raging in Italy, while the national team cancelled a planned friendly due to the earthquake. Oh yeah, and the transfer season is on.

    Spain will be without David Silva for Euro 2012 but still beat S. Korea 3-1. The Englsh will be without Fank Lampard and someone named Jordan Henderson will replace him.

    What's wrong with Silva? He played well in the friendly against South Korea & I haven't heard anything about him missing Euros. David Villa is not recovered enough from his broken leg to play and Cesc Fabregas has an injury of his own, so I'm hoping Silva's ok.

    Must be disappointing for Lampard to miss Europeans, especially since I'm not sure how likely he is to still be around for the next World Cup. Would be v. nice if he does, though!

    phew...got worried Spain was picking up more injuries before Euros even started. I really shouldn't root for any team --doesn't end well as a general rule .

    Cool

    Saturday night = Ft Lauderdale Strikers 3 v 1 Tampa Bay Rowdies...

    Strikers are now 1W-5L-4T against the Rowdies since the USL/NASL Div 2 era. We did party hearty before, during and after the game. The sweetest win in the last 4 years, IMO....

    NJL (we also passed the Rowdies and points and took 4 place in the league from them....things are sweeter yet......)

    I having a hard time picturing our Neil as a party animal. LOL Congrats to our team dude. I was wondering if we should start a new thread for the Euros or just use this one?

    Maybe start a new one since that might encourage other people to post as well? We're not exactly wading through post after post about Euros, though so I'm not really sure. Yes, very helpful and decisive input on my part

    And the USA & Mexico both beat their minnows 3-1. All three wins were expected.

    Except that the USA should have won 7-0.

    As should Mexico. Neither team played up to expectations against weak opposition.

    Now the USA goes to the hellhole that is Guatemala tomorrow after playing one of their poorest games in ages. It may not be a great night for the USA. Here's hoping that the Klinsmann Era does not turn into a total disaster with our not even making the hex, let alone WC 2014 in brazil.

    Well, the USA gives up a late equalizer to draw 1-1. Evidently the USA got hosed on a couple of calls, but that's Concacaf for you.

    1-1 draws seems to be the order of the week. LOL Sorry to hear of the bad calls. On the bright side the US is on of the better teams in Concacaf and almost sure to make it. Between Donovan and Dempsey I am very confident in the US's future. Not so much Canada's...

    Canada tied 0-0 at home against Honduras A game they could have won. Welcome to CONCACAF WC qualifying. It only looks easy to those who do not understand...

    Not so bad since Jamaica tied Antigua and Barbuda (or whatever their name is) at home. Plus, the USA has only won once in Guatemala. Playing and winning in these small Central American countries is a challenge. Mexico won 2-1 in El Salvador by the skin of it's teeth. Everyone in CONCACAF has a dog fight in CA.

    NJL ( at least the USA is still 1st in group...we'll see how long they last if they make the hex )

    I actually did not follow that friendly. LOL But friendlies do not say much. I have little hope for us. But my first coment was referring to the first round results of the Euros because there was a couple 1-1 ties. . Come on over to the other thread guys. Join the fun/torture.
