John Brooks is completely useless. We should have brought Maurice Edu instead, since he can actually play multiple positions and knows how to defend

the irony of brooks getting the header for the winner is that for 40 minutes he was defending like a marshmallow

Brooks was responsible for Ghana's goal also

he's the guy that didn't close down the runner coming through the box

I don't know sh*t about soccer.  I just thought it was ironic that you were railing against Brooks and he came through with the goal and a great stop shortly after.  I'm sure you're right about what ever it is you said.

"I believe that we will win!!!!!!!!!!!!!"



Brant is completely right and I hope they don't let Brooks start against Portugal.

More importantly the US staff needs to figure out what is going on with the player's fitness, they knew what the weather would be like so this is unacceptable.

Also we need to figure out how to possess the ball for longer periods or we aren't going to stand a chance.
