    Not to worry Neil. Wondo gets his hat trick, Landon gets three points, and my guy Stu Holden scores!! USA guts Belize 6-1

    So does all this mean Mexico is in danger of not making it to the WC?!

    That's a bit premature, but there's no doubt that the team is underperforming, and that there is a ton of pressure on Chepo. If they get bounced out of the Gold Cup, he's gotta be sacked. But I suspect that El Tri will somehow manage to squeak into the quarterfinals, and that may be enough to keep his job through qualifying.

    But you can bet that Chepo's bosses are nervous as heck right now. That loss to Panama was VERY embarrassing.

    USA beats Cuba 4-1 and Costa Rica 1-0 to win Group C in the Gold Cup. Next, in the Quarter Finals, they play El Salvador.

    Of special note is Cuba's continuing on from the group stage to the Quarter Finals. They had to defeat Belize by 4 goals to do it and did win 4-0 with the final goal coming in the 93rd minute. Wild stuff.

    USA looked OK against the Ticos, but to move on in the tournament they will have to do better. El Salvador will not be a pushover, and they will make it tough to score on them. USA needs strong games out of the midfield to win.

    Sepp Blatter is saying it is not too late to switch the WC in Qatar 2022 in winter.

    Sepp is an idiot. No one is going to travel there any way, at any time of year. I went to S Africa, am in the process of making plans for Brazil despite the problems at Confederations Cup, and would go to Russia but for their atrocious air safety record. However, there is no conceivable way I would ever consider going to Qatar, even for free; I will travel to other events to see the players and teams I follow.

    We should be wondering what would the voters have done if they knew a vote for Qatar would mean a January WC? Then I realized it wouldn't mean anything since it was all bought and paid for...

    Tito Vilanova has stepped down as Barca's coach because of cancer and Luis Enrique is rumoured to be leading the race to succeed him.

    Not just Donovan, but the whole team seems to be clicking. And this is largely the B team. USMNT finally has some depth, and Klinsmann seems to be doing a great job of creating a pipeline for talent and helping the group to peak at the right time.

    It looks good so far. Honduras on Saturday then, hopefully, Panama or Mexico on Sunday to get the Gold Cup.

    Then September & WC qualifiers start again. We need 2 wins from 4 games to advance. We'll see how it goes.

    Just when you think Sepp Blatter couldn't screw up anymore....he now thinks holding the WC in Brazil is a bad idea:

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/soc.../?sct=obinsite

    This and Qatar happened on your watch Mr. Blatter. You allowed you and your cronies to be bought off, and now what are you going to do about it???

    EPIC FAIL

    The level of corruption and waste in FIFA is disgusting. What is worse is that they appear to be untouchable.

    So Klinsmann gets suspended for Sunday's game for "throwing a ball violently?" WTH? Instead, they should have suspended the incredibly incompetent referee who let a ton of dangerous plays occur without booking anyone. Sheesh

    Interesting game in NYC tonight: NY Cosmos v Ft Lauderdale Strikers. Something that has not happened since the 1980s.

    Don Garber made an interesting announcement the other night during the MLS all-star game: MLS will expand to 24 teams by 2020. Pick where the 4 teams will come from. Since there are no teams in the SE USA the frontrunners are Orlando, Miami, Atlanta and ??????

    NJL (....we'll see....Miami is there strictly on David Beckham's supposed involvement.....no Becks, no Miami?...He'll make his announcement before years end....where ever he goes is in........)
