A majority of MEXICAN football fans, which I always find amusing. There's a reason they left their country, after all. Most in Atlanta probably don't care about soccer but would certainly root for their own country over Mexico.

But I get it.....You perversely enjoy rooting against the U.S. while enjoying the benefits of living here. That's OK. Enjoy watching Mexico lose to the U.S. again next year in South Africa. That is, if Mexico even makes it.

Most of the football fans down here are mexican from the looks of things...I dont like their team either(especially with that arrogant prick aguirre who I hate almost as much as Bradley)

Really dosent matter if the US and Mexico make the world cup(which I expect both will). They wont be there long, and wont do much with what little time they have there.

We'll see. I don't have high expectations for South Africa '10 either, but I didn't see us making the quarters in '02 either (and giving Germany all they could handle in that game).

Which Bradley did you hate? The father or son?

The old man who calls himself a coach, yet has one of the best US players riding the pine while a person who looks like he does not care 3/4 of the time is starting.

Wow, I couldn't disagree with you more. While I'm not giving up on Adu, he showed very little in the little Gold Cup play he got. Furthermore, he hasn't done diddly at Benfica, nor did he play much when he was on loan at Monaco. Hopefully that will change.

As for Altidore, I don't know how you conclude that he looks disinterested out there. For such a young man, the results he's produced on the pitch have been good. Now, he's been languishing in Spain. Hopefully he'll do well at Hull City.

Donovan didnt do anything in europe from what I remember either(except say he cared more about family which would allow him to come back and play agaisnt weaker talent in the MLS)

Altidore should do well coming off the bench(like he should be doing for the US team)

Arsenal pwn all.

The way to turn the "ugly American" sports fan into a soccer/football fan is to have him/her watch Arsenal play.
