Reminds me of a story. I had an uncle, big Norwegian guy who had a fishing boat off the coast of Vancouver Island. They were in a huge gale and the boat was flooded and they were bailing like crazy to try and keep it from sinking. He looks over and sees one of the crew on his knees praying. He said if you don't get up and get bailing I'll throw you overboard right now.

Faith is a way of walking, not a way of talking.

So, in this metaphor, if I understand it correctly, Phonzie is the boat, the guy praying is Herdman, Vancouver Island is the Canadian backline, Buchanan is the bailing bucket and I'm the big Norwegian guy.

Do I have that right?  I've had a few, so I may be mixed up a bit.

I actually blame Davies. You don't throw a ball backwards to your CB like that

You can do that if you want. A player at this level has to make that play comfortably, though, and Kennedy never found his way back into the play either.

Have to say that Brooks is a nightmare at the back for the USA. You think we are dodgy at times???

Just lumping big punts up the park and was absolutely at sea for our goal. Hadn’t a clue where Larin was. 

Oh yeah he was a mess. Funny thing was when they all huddled he was the guy doing the speaking.

If you look at our goal, we brought Davies slightly inside. Think we should do this more often as:

1) get him closer to the net and might help him combine with David /Lain a little more thought the middle

2) makes the other team have to drop players inside and defend narrow, opening them up on the overlap from our fullback 

3) Davies is still fast enough to pull back into the channel and beat his defender to the end line like he would if he was playing wide.

That was just a story. This was the part for you:

Okay, so if I understand things now, what you're really saying is that the Limp Bizkit cover of Faith is superior to the original?  I'm inclined to agree, but not sure what that has to do with anything.

 

 

 

Subtext: just funning around here.

Did the temperature in Berhalter's coaching seat just get jacked up to that of my bbq for broiling the striploin I had for dinner tonight?

Watch them bring back Mr. New Jersey again to try and save their bacon, haha

Statement performance!!!

Totally. Though greedily I wanted more, especially at the end. Still don't think a 2 man midfield is the way to go though. Look how far up Kennedy was for their goal. Would not happen with a three man mid.

Now we just need a win in El Salvador.
