Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:08 PM) also milber is his name until he stays healthy and does well
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:08 PM) i'm gonna start calling out all the shitty players by wrong names. book it
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:09 PM) and GMs. fire Izdik!
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:13 PM) umm ok
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:13 PM) Idzik is the man that will get this team into the SB
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:14 PM) with no CBs or WRs yeah right
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:14 PM) WE HAVE WR'S WE HAVE ERIC DECKER
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:15 PM) 30 million in cap room and hasn't extended contracts for young players (like wilk) and hasn't gotten us dick for CBs or WRs. tried for rod-cro and failed, settled on patterson who was an ahole and got cut. cro is helping arizone win games and we got nothing
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:16 PM) 1 Wr isn't enough and decker isn't even a proven number 1. salas, nelson, kerly, and hakim are our other WRs. kerly is a better #3 slot guy and the rest are trash so far
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:16 PM) patience young grasshopper
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:16 PM) Idzik is the answer
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:18 PM) lol i'm no longer a young grasshopper. there is a reason why older people don't come here. ron quit the jets, dubb went AWOL, crazy horse, blue line, etc all gone. all the older members just got fed up. i've ben here for 10+ years. I used to be young and hopefull like you guys, now i'm old and jaded
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:21 PM) I'm 37 and I'm still here
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:21 PM) patience is key
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:21 PM) we are turning the corner
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:21 PM) Idzik is the answer
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:21 PM) Some are more patient i guess lol. in the meantime lets fire izdik and be patient with a better GM
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:22 PM) so was MT, so was herm, so was hackett, so was dinger, people always think current staff is the answer, it rarely is
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:23 PM) I see through izdik BS, the way he handles our players is bad. people aren't going to want to come here. he completly fucked up the DRC thing by refusing to call him back. giants did it right and made sure he didn't leave w/o a contract. we handed him to the giants. imagine the huge help he'd be with us
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:23 PM) take a chill pill and go drink some good bourbon and chill out
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:23 PM) DRC is overrated
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:23 PM) we are going to build this roster through the draft
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:24 PM) and when a player deserves a big contract Idzik will roll out the red carpet
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:24 PM) in FA
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:25 PM) and Wilk will not be going anywhere
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:25 PM) don't sweat it
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:25 PM) and we will be ok
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:25 PM) so he's not better then milner, walls, allem, wilson?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 06:26 PM) either way. i'll be back on in a bit. bout to leave work and head home to watch the game. I believe in GENO!!!! (not so much in izdik)
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:26 PM) IDZIK not IZDIK DAMNIT
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 06:30 PM) FIRE IZDICK
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:41 PM) Just a little bit longer till GAMETIME!!!!
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:41 PM) J! E! T! S! JETS JETS JETS!!!!
santana Icon : (Today, 06:49 PM) WOO!
santana Icon : (Today, 06:49 PM) Seems like the fish are already having qb issues. POSTED BELOW
RetireChrebet Icon : (Today, 07:10 PM) Who is going to gaurd Calvin Johnson next week?
RetireChrebet Icon : (Today, 07:10 PM) That will be an adventure
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 07:13 PM) You realize I call him that purposely because I don't like him right?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 07:13 PM) Calvin is gonna own us
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 07:15 PM) Milber of course

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.
