Wake Up Call for US Soccer


#1

...after all of the excitement of getting to the confedarations cup final, a 2-2 draw against Haiti.


#2

There's bound to be a let down somewhere. Lots of emotional/physical intensity during the Confed Cup; maybe they just took a break.

I'll give some credit to Haiti as well.

Maybe that was the U.S. team's "deload" game. ;p

Let's see if they can ramp it back up going forward. Maybe the coach should take a kick at someone on the sidelines. jajajaja


#3

This is going to end badly.


#4

Very badly


#5

The US has a soccer team?


#6

Dude, Haiti was a French colony, and France is close to Portugal, which was the founder of Brazil. So of course the U.S.A. will lose, it's like they were playing Brazil!


#7

so what happens with a tie in soccer?


#8

You do realize what the roster for each game looked like, right? Those were pretty much two different teams for those games.


#9

Friendly: Just draw
League/ tournament group stages: 3 points win, 1point draw, 0 points lose.
Cup final: 30 mins extra time, then penalties if still drawing.


#10

The U.S is missing all their stars...... This thread is gonna turn into a football is better Americans are better(not saying were not)thread. FUCK YOU!


#11

so what, do we replay them or something?


#12

No no. It's for the "US" soccer team, like "US" vs. "THEM."

"THEM" is a team from Madagascar, I think, or somewhere near the Volga.

Anyway, first game of football is Sept. 13. Fuck the world, Giants rule.


#13

They pick the weakest link to duel it out with handguns.

The winner then goes on "The Contender" in a vain attempt to play a real sport.


#14

haha. Just as I predicted.


#15

lol, okay that makes more sense.

I thought I was losing my shit for a min.


#16

Stars? What stars? I know that they picked quite a few youngsters but still, Haiti?


#17

Sept 5!


#18

ou sucks!! usc bitch


#19

hahahahhah.

It's just too easy at this point.


#20

sounds kind of cool. i wish they just did the duel first though, soccer would be way cooler if they used guns
