Why did we bring Altidore if he's had an injury?
And can someone have a talk with Bradley?
*is nervous about the second half*
Oh my God. I think that game took five years off my life. First the exultation of Dempsey scoring in the first minute, then eighty minutes of watching Ghana take shot after shot after shot, of Michael Bradley giving away the ball every time he received it, and then Ghana scoring with eight minutes to go. And then...the corner, and the header by (correction
) Brooks . I repeat: Oh. My. God.The Better Team Was...
Like it or not, Ghana. Asamoah Gyan, in particular, was amazing. They kept the ball better than the US did, and took far more shots on goal. We just happened to catch them sleeping.Man of the Match:
If Ghana had won or tied, I would have said Gyan, but since the US pulled it out, I'll hand the honors to Tim Howard (USA).
I was impressed with Alejandro Bedoya, Jermaine Jones, Howard (of course), and Kyle Beckerman. DeMarcus Beasley may be experienced, but he's getting a little long in the tooth. And for the love of God, will Klinsmann please
get Bradley off the field? To think that we could have had Donovan at that position...it breaks the heart.
