    US has a great chance to make a statement here. Predictions on the game? I'm going to say 2-1 to Mexico.

    Mexico pulled that back quick and could've been 3-2 to Mexico at the brink of half time. Good game this.

    ... and now it is 3-2.

    Loss of Cherundolo was a real blow. I don't know why Bob Bradley brought on Jonathan Bornstein instead of Jonathan Spector; neither of them are as good as Cherundolo, but Spector is the lesser of two evils. Bornstein, not surprisingly, having a mare - he should never play for the US again (but I've been saying this for years, and Bradley has yet to listen to me).

    Bornstein really is not good.

    Dos Santos just toying around, what a goal.

    Ugh... I really don't want to come off as racist or anything like that, but it really disturbs me that a "home" game in LA has more Mexican fans turning out than those for the USA. And what's more, this rivalry just makes me angry every time I watch a run-in between the US and MX. Just cheap shots going everywhere, no flow to the game, and it looks to me like it's all Mexico's doing every time.

    I mean, seriously... pouring urine on Donovan as he walks out of the tunnel at the Azteca to shouts of "I just fucked your mom!"? Way to stay classy, Mexico.

    My wife is Mexican, and therefore my daughter 1/2. But WTF?!

    (then again I could just be looking for excuses as to why the US sucked it up this tournament...)

    Terrible passes all over the pitch killed the US today. Defenders giving away the ball in the box, midfielders booting the ball too far downfield instead of making smarter square balls, and strikers not executing that well either.

    Then again, I only was able to catch the second half so I seem to have missed the best play.

    if you know the history of Donovan he asks for this treatment from mexican fans. for the rest of it conisidering the popularity of football in general in the us why do you think it is odd that there are more mexican fans in the stadiums?

    You're not alone. I wasn't surprised either but still saddened when the announcers were saying that it was an overwhelmingly Mexican crowd pregame.

    I also felt that early on the officiating was favoring Mexico. A few no calls on what looked to be fouls followed by Donovan's weak yellow card, with nothing called when Adu got kicked in the face.

    Losing Cherundulo was a huge loss. Our defense fell apart and hats off to Mexico in exposing our weaknesses. The back line looked pathetic and unless the US can somehow figure out how to strengthen it immensely, they aren't going to go anywhere in the international game. I thought Adu played great and it was good to see that.

    I'm still in awe over that Di Santos goal.

    The man singlehandedly made a mockery of the US defense.

    Why isn't Jay DeMerit on the squad anymore? He should have come in for Cherundolo.
    Looking forward to seeing Adu and Altidore on the field together. They have some real chemistry going.

    What does one have to do to justify urine/vomit being dumped on one's head? Pissing on a pitch, behind a bush, when the locker rooms were locked? Sure Donovan's arrogant, but arrogance isn't something to deserve that. If that were the case there'd be no need for urinals at any sporting event.

    ok he is also fucking moron as well. knowing full well how serious the rivalry is between the two and having already a rep for being a cunt you do not piss on the pitch... you wait , you piss in bottle who knows what you do but eh gesture will only confirm you are a bigger dick and have no respect whatsoever...
    let say you do nto have toilet paper but countries flag is near you after shitting, what do you do?

I just don't understand why Bradley didn't just clamp down on defense after 2-0 for the rest of the half. Those two goals were earned, but from the start Mexico was just on fire offensively. Being up 2-0 with the game going like that (where mexico had 3 legitimate chances to score already) is like winning a huge pot playing a cash game in poker... bradley should have clamped down on defense for the rest of the half... then maybe try to trick them with good offense in the latter part of the game.

    That was a moment of brilliance.

    I don't know. I just assumed he was hurt. I'm actually starting to think that the U.S. can put together a pretty formidable midfield and attack. Bradley's playing a lot better than I expected and I've always liked both Donovan and Dempsey. If Altidore and Adu can develop their game, Holden comes back strong, and the other midfielders just not suck, they should be alright. I really don't like their defense though. Except for Howard, I just don't think they have the caliber of players to compete with any of the top 10 teams.
