Am I the only one that thinks the first goal isn't the result of a flukey bounce? It was a result of leaving players completely unmarked inside the box. We should have been able to deal with that, flukey bounce or not.

Yeah, I still haven’t watched the game replay, but love it looked like someone was on the scorer before the kick was launched in and then completely let him run in alone to score.  It looked like complete non-marking to me.

In my opinion people aren't focusing on our midfield enough. Many of the goals and chances came from poor passing going forward. In the first game we played through the middle and were very clean in our passing. In the second game we were sloppy in our passing and we paid for it. Our defense sucked, but so did our midfield.

The first thing that comes to mind are misplaced passes from a tired Osorio and an out of form Piette. Kaye misplaced a pass to David and Arfield was forced into a turn over or two. 

We decided to square up to a motivated USA side away from home and paid the price.

A more conservative approach would have been wiser, but we have the players to ball and they are eager to prove they are equals to the USA. I get it, because I honestly believe our midfield matches theirs in terms of talent, but there is a place and a time. Away from home with only a point needed was not the time. Foolish approach.

I was in Cuba last week for a family vacation. When I got to my room, turned the TV on and was very happy to see that the resort carried ESPN2. So I missed the Friday family supper to watch the game. I should of went for supper. Like everyone here very disappointed with the play and result but nobody mentioned the missed penalty call for us in the 12th minute. Even the US commentators thought it should of been called. I not saying we would have won or tied the game for sure but it could of changed things. PS. That game cost the all inclusive resort a few extra drinks.

And Arfield was fouled but tried to sell it. Why does he try to sell it? Because he got fouled 2 or 3 times leading up to that and the ref did not call it. We had a lot of calls go against us, but this is concacaf for you.
