USMNT (WC qualifying)

They're a steaming pile of s***. That's really all I can say. How do you tie Canada 1-1 playing at home and after having played like garbage against El Salvador (0-0)? It's early in WC qualifying but you absolutely have to win your home games and they can't. Can't believe they're ranked #10 in FIFA rankings. I guess when it comes to WC qualifying they just disappear. Friendlies mean jack.

This team has scored a total of 1 goal in the first 2 qualifiers in this round and now they're on the outside looking in.

If the USMNT lose or draw in their next match this week against the Honduras, I don't think they'll qualify for the next World Cup. That would be a serious embarrassment.

Tonight's game between the USMNT and Honduras will only be shown on Paramount+. Who on earth even has that channel??

Okay I'm going to continue this trend of talking to myself in this thread, lol. The USMNT have continued to be a disgrace against the Honduras. Completely unorganized play and just absolutely out of it. I can't believe how shitty they have become. Down 1-0 at the half and I don't feel optimistic about this match. Zero midfield ball possession. Losing all 50/50 balls. Unbelievable.

Yes. When I ranted last night they were down 1-0 at the half and looked like garbage. Lol.

They played a few key subs in the second half and changed their strategy and made a huge difference. That was a relief. If they would have lost that match they would be in big trouble right now. As it stands, they are on the borderline at the moment. They need to continue winning their matches, especially at home.

CONCACAF matches are so tough because the opponents' pitches are horrible. Nothing like a pro level playing surface you see in most places. The pitch in Honduras was "spongy" according to the players and you could see the ball slow down drastically when attempting passes. Still no excuse to not win their games however so they need to toughen up and continue to improve. They finished positively last night so that's a good sign.

US Men's team playing Mexico in a qualifier right now. American Anthony Robinson(left back) is the worst player I've seen in a long time. He gives the ball away so easily and he can't pass for shit. It's so frustrating. How is he even a starting member of this squad?!?

USA! USA! Americans win 2-0. Third time this year the US has beaten Mexico. First time in history either team has beaten the other 3 times in a calendar year.

I can't believe there are no fellow Americans that care about the USMNT beating Mexico.

I watched the game... got more of a chuckle over the transformation from your first post "They're a steaming pile of s***." to your last!

LOL. Yeah, needless to say the team has actually transformed themselves big time. Beating Mexico is their biggest achievement by far.

Couldn't watch because I was playing myself.
I swapped sides at the last minute because other team didn't have enough players. We ended up "winning" 11-5.

When I checked score and saw Pulisic scored to seal the deal, I expected comments from you

Haha, nice.

When Pulisic is on the pitch, he's a dangerous man. He just needs to stay healthy! I know Tuchel is concerned about these international layoffs. I don't blame him!

Well the USMNT is playing another match today against Jamaica. I hope they continue their recent level of play. Unfortunately Weston McKennie is out due to accumulated yellow cards. Pulisic should be good to go! Fingers crossed he doesn't get injured.

I guess I'll have to watch a replay on Paramount+ since the game starts early at 5:00pm EST.

When they played last week here in Cincinnati, the whole city was electric! Haven't seen Cincinnati like that in a long time and it was exciting to see!

Yeah that place was rocking! They ought to host ALL of the games for the US Men's team!

Actually I think I read they're undefeated in the state of Ohio for qualifiers.

I would be okay with that. Def beats seeing the Bungles play.

I did see a meme out there saying that the USMNT has the same amount of wins as FCC does in their own stadium! lol

Just finished watching that frozen game in Edmonton

Mexico has the WORST sportsmanship of any team in the world

There is NO excuse to spit at people, especially from the sideline
