Dunga made a genius move by creating more width with his subs.

USA shouldn't have sat back and played defense in the 2nd half....we abandoned what was working in the first half, and it cost us the game. Kelishtan sucks.....and Bradley did not use his subs wisely this tournament.....to little rest for most of the US players throughout this tournament and it showed at the end of the second half.......Bocanegra couldn't pass the ball with no pressure on him.....

And the ref was not so great....

He was on loan to Bayern this season but didn't do too well once the season started. Had a good pre-season with the team though. Hope he gets another shot.
yeah I know, but I think that he never stood a chance at Bayern. His best position was allready being inhabited by a certain Mr. Ribery. I think the best thing for him would be to go to a mid table team in spain. He's one of the few American players that I think could handle the skills required and really grow as a player (if it's not allready too late). Plus he speaks fluent spanish. Going to Bayern was just a bad decision.

actually I kind of like him playing on the left side so he can cut in and shoot, but I still think he prefers playing on the right

I know Dempsey is still under contract with Fulham but I expect a few other clubs to show interest. 3 goals in 3 games after not scoring in 8.

That is why Fabiano is such a good striker.

Its Brazil. They attacked relentlessly. They were bound to win.

Howard had a good game and tried very hard.

Kaka: Player of the tournament. He has been immense for Brazil throughout. He should have gone in the scorebooks today.

Umm, I am pretty sure we are the best at basketball without question. Baseball we are one of the best for soccer we are alright. No one even plays rugby or cricket in the U.S. so it is understandable that we suck ass (wait we do suck at those right? I wouldn't even know that's how little Americans care about rugby and cricket)

Yes we do have a lot of money, well at least most people do but those people just sit on their ass all day and watch T.V. Most of the really good athletes are actually middle class or poor.

As for education, yeah our school system sucks. At least for me it is way too easy. I have never really had to try in school and usually recieve very good grades, but some people don't do so well so well.

The real question is, why did you ask those questions in this thread?

People spend more time educating themselves generally, depending on your family. if your parents focus on a sport, you generally would. Thats around the world. USA Dont play much rugby and cricket (From what i know). Baseball their number 4 (Correct me if Im wrong) Thier number one is basketball (Im sure of this) and now number 10-13 in soccer.

No Spain lost to America in the Olympic finals but even if they had won America is still better at basketball, that is a fact.
