think the same

Interesting. I note it because I think he's changed things with a different perspective. You think he's too' European'?

I dont think he plays to our strenghts, I thought we played better last WC. We where totally outclassed. Here he is a big name to me and that is it. He sucked as German and Munich manager and he is the same here. I think he is better suited towards youth development than manager.

Tim Howard kept us in all four matches without a doubt.

Tim Howard may be the best keeper in the world

Neuer is amazing, Iker looked terrible, Buffon is aging a bit, but still really good. I would put it down to Howard and Neuer, but thats just my opinion.

That says a lot for Tim Howard and a lot more about the team in general

Even with Tim Howard's amazing skills, we still lost. That's exactly what I meant about one person won't make much difference if the overall team is simply not as good as the opponent. I'm sick to my stomach for Tim, because after all he's done and all his contribution to the team, his team mates simply couldn't pull it together. Tim has reportedly said all the records breaking accolades mean nothing to him because he signed up to win, not to break records.

One player can make a difference. If that one player can pass the ball (Lord we needed it) or know how to fight for that goal he can change the whole team.

Yeah, watching that game, it seemed as if Belgium was able to break through the US defense quite easily; they had far too much attempts at the goal compared to the US, and the US players lost the ball, and couldn't quite make the connections as often.

But one good thing is that hopefully, more people in the US can realize what an interesting sport soccer is, allowing the sport to grow in popularity.

I'm sure fans have experienced the joy and agony of the WC drama. They'll want more. They might even follow the US for the local tournaments for Concacaf.
