    Guys....we are a 2nd half team....let's relax..

    To his credit, Gregg has made some good 2nd half adjustments
    in most of these games.....BELIEVE!

    All these passes to no one is pure shit.

    Don't they train together?

    I agree. I just like how you’re so pro Turner.

    Steffen seemed to react slowly (screen?) and didn’t exactly move explosively toward it. Still, more of a great shot than anything else.

    This game looks a lot like the Mexico game in tactics because Berhalter was told not to overthink. Would that be the game Jamaica prepared for?

    Adams needed some help there. That's where Acosta would have been of service.

    both Zimmerman and Yedlin aren't sharp enough with their distribution, but at least Zimmerman has been winning his duels like he was vs El Tri

    Get it right from the start and you don't need to fix things in the 2nd half.

    Good WC teams are not going to let you get by.

    I'd rather have Turner starting, but I doubt he'd have saved that. Biggest share of the blame has to go to Adams for giving him the space to get off that shot uncontested.

    Interesting. My first thought was they're not pressing like they were vs Mexico.

    Either CB could have stepped up to help, didn’t need both backpedaling to defend the same guy.

    I love how people were putting Zimmerman in Europe after his performance last game, and in this game his distribution has been downright dreadful.

    Let him turn cleanly to the middle with enough room to wind up and crank the shot uncontested.

    I love Adams, but that is on him and Acosta makes no difference. You show people away from goal. You don't overcommit to someone's off foot going away from goal, allowing them to cut back to the middle of the field and shoot.

    Just slightly more precision and we're looking good here. We're close, but too many plays are just in step off here and there. When we're patient and control the ball, Jamaica can't do much about it.

    Zimmermans passing is making me crazy. He must have 8 or 9 giveaways. Thanks goodness for his defense.
