ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:17 PM) finding talent in places you don't expect
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:17 PM) but instead we get a pencil pusher
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:17 PM) who puts us in great position cap wise but can't evaluate talent for shit
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:18 PM) and makes horrible draft picks

MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 10:59 AM) SUCK FOR THE DUCK
Chaos Icon : (Today, 11:37 AM) another potential HC name - Sean Payton. There is a possibility that the Saints decide it's time for a change. Unlikely but if it happens and he's out there....
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 06:50 PM) Payton is not going anywhere.

I'm predicting England win 2-1, but will win it with a lucky goal. We've been woeful in the warm up matches, and it has only slowly dawned on people that this team isn't as good as people think.
If Clint Dempsey is up against Glen Johnson (England's right back), that will be a very interesting matchup. Defensively, Johnson is suspect, and Dempsey is a very tricky player, who I like a lot.

First game was a good one - great first goal by the South Africans, and - although Mexico, who like in their friendly with England were poor in front of goal, deserved a point - I felt sorry for the host nation at the end that they didn't win.

Johnson is going to be where the USA should attack. You know I'm a Liverpool supporter, and I do love Glen Johnson, he's one of the best right backs going forward but like you said really suspect defensively at times.

I'll save my prediction until I see what Bradley puts out there. He's unpredictable, and I cannot stand him. We'll see..

Supposedly there are going to be more US fans in the stadium than English fans, which you wouldn't expect given the difference in popularity of the sport between the two of our countries.
To be honest though that can be put down largely to the British media - who already are making a bit of a scene about the empty seats at the game between South Korea and Greece today - and their consistent portrayal of South Africa as a crime-ridden, no-go zone. Although crime levels are high over there, it is still one of the most visited countries on Earth. If I could afford tickets, travel etc., I'd have jumped at the chance to go.

Saying that though, come on England!

Good luck ya filthy Brits.

I think the US needs Onyweu healthy...and like...able to jump. Not because he is some elite defender, but because he could quickly become a liability if he can't get airborne.

In all fairness, the US deserved that goal - they've created the better of the chances so far and been better on the ball. But they need to get behind our full backs more if they're going to cause England more problems. Too often they've played the ball around in front of our defence, and Donovan and Dempsey should be more adventurous.
England need to be less one dimensional. Rooney has done nothing so far and all we seem to be doing is the long ball up to Heskey.

Should be an interesting second half...

USA playing far too narrow. It's really annoying me.

Tell Donovan to stay far wide, on the line and have a go at either Cole or Johnson.

Second half here we come!

Good game, both were probably deserving of a point. Capello's decisions were mighty interesting.

The group is now really wide open.

I think we'll both go through, but that neither will make it past the quarter finals at best (getting to the last eight for the US would be considered a success though I guess).

Analysts over here have been arguing to play him up front alone, but that would demand a less direct approach than England usually play. With Heskey or Crouch alongside him, the team are arguably more inclined to loft long balls upfield, but that doesn't mean you can't play the ball on the ground too. We need to get Rooney dropping more into the space between defence and midfield, play a quick one-two with a teammate, and have him roll his marker because he'll have most defenders beat for pace.
