Your thoughts? Would a loss strengthen or deter US soccer
Wait...first you say the support for the U.S is out of control. Then you say that the support is 50-50. Why should anyone respond to your stupid post with anything other than this: You're an idiot.

I haven't seen any hype and anticipation for the U.S. team in the World Cup. On the other hand, Mexico supporters got way out of control when they won their last game, and the police are gearing up for the fallout from the next game. The only people I know who are actual soccer fans are rooting for Mexico and Colombia.

Not the support, the chances for advancement are 50-50. Stop being an idiot.

Development of good soccer players here is improving quickly, too
I hope so just as I hope many of our younger players are tuning in and watching the US play. Some future strikers saw how elated Jones and brooks and Dempsey were. Perhaps they'll get that feeling too and work hard toward a personal dream either in MLS or the Cup team or internationally.

Here in Chicago there were tons of people talking about it and did you see pictures from Grant Park? Google Grant Park soccer for images...people seem pretty excited, more than ever.

I may be hanging around with a lot of soccer people, but I seem to be talking about the World Cup all the time lately. Our company is having its own viewing party in our building, serving lunch up in our gathering area.

I'm thinking I will go to our own party instead of Grant Park, because based on images from the last game I wouldn't be able to see the huge screen for the Grant Park viewing.

It's ALL good.

im going to say that more parents are or thinking of, moving kids to soccer due to recent blow up via the media on concussions and issues folks face once they get multiple concussions.

not that soccer is 100% proof of such, but it beats the NFL and football, baseball.

Polling shows that soccer is equal to popularity among Americans under 20 with football and basketball and more popular than baseball or hockey

The main step needed is for the national sports media to actually cover the MLS, which it refuses to do The league has done a great job adding teams where soccer is popular
