I hope for a good showing tonight. If we play like we did in the 1st half against Argentina we should have a pretty good chance. I haven't got to check out paraguay yet so i really don't know what they have other than Santa Cruz. i know they beat up on a horrible columbia team. This should be a good challenge and a good gauge as to how good out team is. I wish michael Bradley was playing, but he is playing in the U-20 world cup in canada right now.

I'm really looking forward to this match, seeing that I think we should win it. I'd really like to see a strong performance from EJ tonight. Fire up the UNIVISION!

I dont feel like I need to explain myself here, we'll just see what happens. Either Ill be very wrong or I can safely say "I told you so."

Anyways, I wont be on the forum to post about this one today. Going to a friends house to watch it on his big screen.

No I wasn't attacking your post or anything, just trying to get others thoughts on our lineup and style. I haven't seen paraguay and waas wondering maybe you have and have seen something that brought you to that conclusion. Or is it just a wild guess in the dark? Don't get so defensive I was just asking your opinion on our squad.

We cant even lose a game right. At least go out without giving up ANOTHER DAMN GOAL. PATHETIC.

Are we (USA) good at anything anymore? We keep getting beat internationally in soccer, golf, basketball, baseball, everything. What's the deal?

In our defense, we're fielding like our "C" squad in a sport we aren't anything special in against the A squads from countries that this tourny means alot to.

Yea and we actually played decent we just couldn't finish our chances. We had a couple point blank shots that we should have put away. If we brought our A squad we would have beat Paraguay and would have gave Argentina a run for their money. This is a very young group we brought and it will be great experience for them, as they will be making the backbone of our WC 2010 team. By the way Kellar is past his prime and needs to retire from international play.

Yeah you're spot on about Kellar. The guy has done alot for US soccer, but if we're trying to get young guys experience I don't see why we aren't playing somebody like Guzan who is up and coming. Kasey just doesn't have the reflexes anymore it seems. I was also pretty impressed with Clark. To be honest, I hadn't even heard of the guy prior to this tournament. Who is he?

He played a little in the Gold cup and had some pretty good minutes. They are saying he might be taking over Pablo Mastreoni's spot in the midfield b/c he is playing so good. Whats crazy is his goal it didn't look like he hit it that hard but it was perfectly placed. We had so many chances last night but just couldn't finish. But there is alot of promise in this group and the midfield play is good. This team is going to be dangerous when we have all the key players in the line-up.

Does Clark play in MLS or what? Taking over Mastro's spot would be pretty drastic, but I'm all about putting the best players on the field (Arena's loyalty to some of our older guys got on my nerves)
