Some of the recent friendly results were encouraging, but they now seem to be anomalous. I was surprised that we managed the win at Azteca, and judging by the bemused look on Klinsmann's face after the game, he was as well. At no point was the team actually playing for a win, and it didn't seem like Mexico was giving 100% effort either. The play of Tim Howard and Geoff Cameron basically saved that game for us. They were nothing short of outstanding. Even though Orozco scored the goal, he is not really a great player. He was mediocre during his time with the Union, and although he certainly wasn't the worst player to ever anchor the Union's back line, the FO didn't think highly enough of him to buy him from San Luis. Honestly, I was shocked when Klinsmann began to call him up with some regularity. Either the player pool is much shallower than it seems or Klinsmann's judgement is suspect. I'm beginning to conclude the latter. The midfield could barely string two passes together in the Azteca and it was not much better against a far inferior side in Kingston. Set piece failures are inevitable, so we can't defend all game and expect to win. The coach has to work some attacking players into the lineup, especially in these home Cup qualifier games. It's pretty distressing that the best a guy who is paid 10x as much as Bradley can come up with is parking the bus in a 4-5-1 during away games. Hell, Gulati could've hired Peter Nowak to do that. We should be better than that, especially against CONCALAUGH minnows like Jamaica. I just hope that Klinsmann has learned something from Friday's loss. But I doubt he did.
