Thank you for your highly constructive post.


To the rest of you: I mean I was very intoxicated I just didn't recall very much action. Could of been do to the drinks I suppose.

Me and my friends always head up to RBK Stadium to watch the Union play there. Its a pretty good atmosphere up there.

RBK Stadium? I honestly have no idea what you're talking about. RFK? Red Bull Arena? If it's one of those, then your judgement is clearly impaired.

"always head up"? how many times have you seen the union at "RBK" stadium?

if you mean rba, the first game was an ok atmosphere. second game there was about 20 people there (usoc match). if you meant rfk, that place was/ is a pile of **** with no atmosphere

I'm not ashamed to admit it - I'll be at the Union game today.

I had a couple watch party offers and was leaning towards skipping it, but it's supposed to be beautiful out and by going to Chester, I'm just expressing confidence that there will be many more Flyers games to watch in the next few weeks.

Absolutely dominating performance from Barcelona today. 66% possession or something close to that.

Dont gey me started...
I honestly think we would have finished top 5 with a better manager. Houlier is absolutely brutal, and I hope he chooses not to
And I have an Ashley young jersey. One of my favorites in the world. I'm going to be real upset when he pulls on a Utd. or Liverpool jersey...

Freddy Adu on the comeback trail!

I'm excited for it though. I really hope that Agudelo has a good showing. US desperately needs to develop forwards.

Fortunately, Agudelo will only be in NY for 2-3 seasons. Way too talented.

Yeah I've been really impressed when I've seen him so far. Just has to hope that he develops well, I guess. It's been too long since the US had a forward to rely on (I'm not the biggest Altidore fan).

Yeah the US striker pool is not Gold Cup ready....But if you really wanna think about it...

Why not put Dempsey up top? He scored one less league goal then Chicarito? Our midfield is stacked as is....

But since I doubt Dempsey plays up top to start...

How about a 4-4-2

Altidore ---------------- Agudelo
Dempsey------Bradley-----Jones------Donovan
Bocanegra-----Goodson-----Onyewu/Ream-------Cherundolo
------ Howard--------

Theres a very good chance that Danny mwanga will option to play for the US when it comes time. He's already been contacted by us soccer and it's rumored that he's in the process of becoming a full time citizen.

Oh, I would love to see Dempsey up top, but I don't feel like they would do that. They seem to like him more as a pressing midfielder. I'd actually like to see Benny Feilhaber get some time in. I was pleasantly surprised with him as a CM in the World Cup.

Really? That'd be awesome news. He's already made a ton of progress from an 18 year-old to a 19 year-old.

He is in the process of becoming a citizen, but he's given zero indication either way of who he'll play for.

You'd think he'd be leaning USA, but you never know.

Actually he sounds like he'd like to play for the US.

"Yes, (playing for the U.S.) is something Iíve thought about," Mwanga admitted. "My family lives here. It would be an honor to represent the United States. Playing for the U.S. in a World Cup would be a wonderful opportunity."
Maybe it's just posturing, but it'd be pretty hard to imagine him playing in a World Cup with the DRC.

It's ashame that we won't get to see Stu Holden at this Gold Cup, as I feel he's the sort of player that could have allowed Bradley to move Dempsey further up the pitch. In his absence, it will be interesting to see how Jermaine Jones does.

Personal opinion, but I think the clock should be ticking on Altidore's and M. Bradley's spots in the starting XI.

I know I'm in the minority but I believe Bradley is going to be a mainstay center mid in the EPL. I hear Aston Villa is signing him for 7-10 million Euro's. He had a tremendous world cup and always plays decent for the NT. He had a phenomenal 2nd half vs Argentina.

Dear Jozy,

Were coming for you.

Sincerely,
Teal Bunbury, Juan Agudelo, Josh Gatt, Connor Doyle
