We can't keep possession.

Spain is a possession team so there's no surprise we aren't winning that battle- I read that we weren't even going to try and force them off that game. The knock on the Spanish is that their fluid possession style isn't always effective.

We match up better with them than we did with England, as we can rough them up a bit (though I hate that style). England had both the tactical and the physical edge on us.

You'd still think we'd at least TRY to attack.

EJ goal called off due to offsides... justified though- he was way off. I'm just glad to see life right now. So far we've already had much better chances than we did in the England game.

Howard also looking sharp.

0-0 at half. We look so much better than we did last week. I would love to even just hold this game at a tie.

1-0 Spain. Xavi with a goal near the ended the hopes of at least a draw. Tough loss but good effort.

I knew that 0-0 draw wasn't going to last. Just a matter of time.

Still a much better result overall. Except for Onyewu, who I continue to hate.

Onyewu is this generations Alexi Lalas. Overhyped garbage.


And someone get Josh Wolff off the d@mn national team already...

Is this game changing anyones minds about Spain's chances in their Euro 2008 Group games?

I already picked Russia in the first group match. Spain's back four, especially in the center, is a mess. I also believe Aragones is way overrated as a coach.

And as big of a mess as they are, the U.S. still couldn't score. Says a lot for our squad after Lando.

I could say I didn't mean to do that, but I did. Have some rep to make up for it.

Well we didn't have Landon Donovan which is a huge difference. And we put in Guzman at goal, Josh Wolff, and a couple other guys in the 2nd half. If we keep our starters in I don't think they score that goal. Howard would have stopped Xavi's goal I believe, even though it was a sweet move by him to beat our defenders. Onyewu (sp?) got beat badly on the goal though. Overall a good showing. I think if we have donovan and don't put in Josh Wolff and Guzman we at least get the draw. And can we please find someone to use instead of Heath Pearce? He has no control on his passing.

Onyewu is my public enemy #1 right now. I hate that guy. He got torched all game long by England too. ESPN did that nice little piece on him prior to the 06 WC and after that everyone got this impression that he was this really good player, when the fact is that while he was on his way to being good at that time he had a bad Cup and he has been in a free fall ever since.
