We will play a friendly game today at 3pm on espn2 vs France. It should be a good game, This is a tough challenge but we have a great chance in winning this one.

I just hope Klinsmann put up a good lineup and our backs don't collapse on 2nd half.

I dunno, hopefully they will push forward and be the team they can be. So far I am thinking Klinsmann is the wrong man for the job. The US has such potential but I think you need somebody with more US knowledge to take them where they need to be.

Losing to France 1-0 in France is not to bad. From what i have seen so far, Klinsman needs to try out some new formations and players. When Holdens back he should definitely play.

There's no shame in losing to a quality side on the road. This game could have been a draw. The play is frustrating. Good displays in defense , some control but as soon as they move into the final third it's always snuffed out. I don't like our chances when relying on Jozy as the only forward. We need two attackers on top.

I'm still optimistic about the future. Klinsmann is still tinkering. Some are out injured and there's younger guys to look at.

I am with you Bondurant, we played well considering losing by 1. France is a very good team. I was afraid of our defense collapsing on 2nd half, beside that one bad defensive play, they finish strong. We should fair well against Slovenia tomorrow.

If it wasnt for the keeper the US would have lost by a lot more, the scoreline was very good for them but the game was not. It wasnt a full strength France squad either.

I wouldnt bank on a win against Slovenia, they can be dangerous on the counter attack if they are underestimated.

Yeah Slovenia shouldn't be underestimated, good team for a small country should be a decent game.
