Both McKennie and Dest were recovering from injuries so not surprised they didn't last the whole 90. Was a bit surprised at Musah being fatigued and had to be subbed.

If that's going to be an ongoing issue then we may as well switch to a 4-2-3-1 and play Adams and Musah/McKennie double pivot and get Gio, Weah and Pulisic playing behind Sargent.

I guess we'll see where we stand when we all wake up Friday.

Has anyone mentioned that it would be a lot cooler if we had won?

CP cant take any more free kicks (maybe corners are ok, maybe)
CP's role is to create space for others on the defensive wings and create fouls. So every time CP is fouled hard and the follows it up with a **** free kick, he is letting himself and the team down. Its a turnover and wasted possession. Downside is that I don't know what you do with him strategically if he's not taking the kick

Taking the time to do that and spending time with that kid, that's pretty cool from Graelish.

just want to point out that the great Football analyst Colin Cowherd said "we are young and we need a Clint Dempsey, if Clinton Dempsey is out there the PK foul doesn't happen.

Truly amazing insight

Not sure I understand Colin's reasoning on that?

I fully expect my nephew to emulate it on Friday.

He is a moron.

But if Clint Dempsey is on the squad, we win by at least 2-1.

I agree. He wouldn't have passed up that header that Aaronsen did.

IDK, man. I think he's lost a step or two.

I need him to go all Roy Kent for just one match to put us through to the knockout stage.

I dont think so. He had his heart thing shortly after.

Tried Googling it and only found his last time out was 2017 gold cup.

Also found this:

Ah, memories

Deuce will forever be my favorite USMNT player. Just a Texan putting Europe's elites to shame.

T&T was his last match. Came off the bench at halftime, and apparently had a shot hit the woodwork.

You could play pick up ball with him when he was home. His brother and him would play at the high school. Just couldn't tackle him or you'd get, um, a talking to, by his brothers

Yep. I can still visualize it hitting the post and skipping wide.

That game ended a generation. Lots of familiar names disappeared from the roster after that match.

We're all mostly experienced US soccer fans in here, but imagine the double generation of kids who got to watch their first goal by the US in a World Cup. Probably a lot of 16-22 year olds or so who wouldnt even really remember 2014 that much, its different as an adult.
