    After the quarters I think. That is you can miss a semi for yellow accumulation but not the final.

    If rapinoe plays the second half we know it's more about tv ratings than winning.

    LaVelle is a better passer than this first half right?

    We are wasting our shots. Get them on frame! Looks like our women have a real game on their hands. C'mon USA!

    S was at least half responsible for the goal allowed.

    Well its all coming home to roost so far. When they shut down the crosses... (Heath, Rapinoe) and we do not have a consistent attack through the middle..... that doesnt leave us much offense.

    I think Ellis better plan on DOING SOMETHING or we could very well go out today. No point in saving Horan if we dont win today. Morgan must go or a midfield change. There is a transition game but Morgan is not getting the ball early enough. Maybe getting Horan on would fix that? I dont like Rose much today

    Do it early Ellis... this isnt working

    I get the whole idea with dunn and kelly to create more offense, but i feel like we have given up too much of our traditional defense.

    Yes, she's dribbling too long, needs to make the incisive pass quicker. She's allowing defense to get back and set up.

    that through ball from lavella to rapinoe, that rapinoe shanked out of bounds doesn't count?

    Just as likely a result of being emotionally drained from watching yesterday's game.

    Lavelle looks like the best player on the field to me...

    Lavelles offense has not been great but she is disrupting spains midfielders which has minimized their ability to retain possession and start an attack.

    rose has been the lone bright spot. Rapinoe is aweful, Alex has spent more time on her ass than her feet and Naeher is a complete shit-show

    Not one US player had a good half. The real reason Naeher has been singled out so much is she made her mistake at the back. BTW: Sauerbrunn's mistake was actually worse as she did not try to make any of the three passes available in the time she had which was plenty to find and make one.

    This is why Ellis gets the big bucks. No changes

    SJWs Rapinoe and Morgan focused on their post game speeches, forgot about the game.

    Rapinoe once again put to shame by Corredera in this beginning of 2nd half. :x3: When she's good, Megan is a player I like a lot, but when she's bad, she's really bad.

    Sidenote, I hate when JP says 'picked off,' instead of 'dispossessed,' because it's an A. football term.
