I'm wincing everytime I see a pass go Bradley's way ... his first touch is atrocious

Howard is king!

And if the scores stay as they are, the US needs to send Ronaldo a thank you card.

I'm very impressed with the squad making it to the knockout round from the group of death. That said, our back line play will have to improve and we'll have to stop leaving ourselves so vulnerable to counter attacks if we're going to make any kind of run.

I thought the back line played pretty good today, but I also thought the midfield was an issue. I used to think of Bradley as a security blanket, but not lately.

Bradley needs to make up for his lack of pace by great positioning and great distribution. Right now he isn't offering that. But is there someone else who is?

Will Altidore be ready for the round of 16? Bradley is the weakest link on the team.

Altidore isn't a replacement for Bradley. Do we have another holding midfielder?
