You can see he has well above average quality for our league when it comes to thinking the game and passing, and that isn't even his best asset. We haven't played well enough to first 2 games to see but when we start earning more set peices and possesion chances for crossing opportunities I think we will really start to see what he is best at.

One thing you guys may be surprised with is Cahill's knack for scoring. The guy just knows to get in the right spots. He's also more of an aerial threat than people give him credit for. Hopefully you guys see him punching that corner flag plenty of times.

Seriously a great display from both sides. When Japan comes on, they come on hard. Those free kicks had me on the edge of my seat every time they sent the US defense into a scramble.

I would. As would the whole group of people that I used to go with to Red Bulls games.
I liked some of the players there, but increasing season ticket prices by over 30% after last season pathetic showing...

Is there any way to get Premier League games in the US? I've played soccer since I was a kid and have started following it more and more as of late, but its tough to follow a team when you can't watch their games.
