Already the knives are out -- Pearce Sucks Beasley Sucks Ching Sucks and...of course, Bob Bradley REALLY sucks. Or so the great "braintrust" on here is writing on all the Superdave started threads. Look, here's the deal here. We didn't win (I won't say "tied" because, really, we will destroy El Salvador when we play them here) because of two events: --Heath Pearce ball watching and failing to play the offside trap correctly --Damarcus Beasley forced to play nominal left back when we went to a 3-back, forcing Frankie to play jump ball in the box. THAT'S it.. Oh, and one one more thing. We're just not that good. Really, is anyone surprised? It's just like Guatemala in the opening round. We go to these Latin American hell holes, where you can't hear yourself think, and our first touch becomes horrible, our ability to connect on simple passes deserts us, and our tactical sense devolves into route 1 football. People love Torres now, and he's a nice player and all, but Sascha Klejstan has kicked A$$ in other games. So he folds like a cheap paper airplane in this game. So what? It happens because, you know, we're just not that good. Landon Donovan, who makes it his personal mission to obliterate Mexico, faded in and out of the game more often than Rush Limbaugh mocks Obama. So what? It happens, because, you know, we're just not that good. Look, get used to this in away games. We're not going to set the world on fire. We simply don't have the talent to overcome the difficulties these games create, though we are way better than any of the teams we play in these toilets. It stinks, but there you have it.
