The Red Bulls had 53% possession. It's not like they were blown out of the water. They were a missed PK away from 3 points.

I fully expect them to beat up a depleted Salt Lake team next week. It's how they roll

And I've never seen an MLS team dive the way Toronto did today. Wasn't sure if I was watching a Serie A game

That's a real head-scratcher, it sure didn't seem like it watching the game. To me it seemed like they got dominated. Would have been funny if they won it in that last minute of stoppage when they had a few chances.

We did a lot of playing the ball back in a defensive manner that got us a lot of illusion possession.

I don't know if its the natural state of soccer, or if its just the Red Bulls, but they look so good when they win and so bad when they lose.

Then maybe its not you for support they need. Its someone ruining their opponent's fridge that they're desperately missing.

So Brazil is playing Portugal at Foxboro in September. I'm surprised they are ok with playing on turf

So I went out on a field and started kicking a ball yesterday and got excited so I was back today, and got into shooting a lot. As my shot started to come back I got so into it and tried the swerve and top spin (didn't do too well on that one though) and pure power shots. And ****ing hell, I forgot how much heat the ankles take so now my ankle is so damn sore, also the muscle close to the shinbone, ouch.

Do Europeans generally take our Gold Cup seriously or do they kind of snicker at it?

Rimando is an absolute stud. Only a matter of time before he moves to Europe. Red Bulls are lucky to not have to face him next week.

No, but then again America and Mexico don't take it serious either.

Wasn't the US ranked 4th in Fifa heading into the winless 2006 debacle?

I thought it was 10.

Don't put much stock in FIFA rankings, but they are important for seeding.

Europeans don't take anything serious about the US as footballing nation. Mostly because people 35+ don't take the game seriously.

The huge support the game has with 30 and under puts it in good place moving forward. Especially as baseball gradually declines (thank god)

Gus Johnson and Wynalda were dreadful today.

In Europe, on the whole we don't tend to take each other leagues seriously especially in England (Except the minority who say Bundesliga and La Liga are superior, which is abuse waiting to happen lol)

CONCACAF is a young region. The Gold Cup used to have invites from South America. In fact, the US beat Brazil in a GC match in the late 90s.

The winner of the 2007 and 2011 GC got an invite to the Confederations Cup which is big deal. The winner of the 2009 got nothing for winning, which makes it a joke.

The rules have changed where the winners of the GC in 2013 and 2015 will face off in a home-and-home matchup to determine who gets to go to the 2017 Confederations Cup. No idea what happens if the same team wins both (I assume they get the invite but i dont know).

I know the future of the Gold Cup will include 16 nations in 4 groups. While this format includes more "minnows" it also will eliminate a 3rd place group team from advancing which is a major improvement.
