You can also see the game on espn 360. Adu should play wing midfield for the senior national team and take the free kicks instead of Donovan, but that probably won't happen.

the good thing is we won't need many of these guys for 2010 except for Adu and Altidore

I thought Adu was awesome the entire game. Chad Barrett is horrible and I used to not be a big fan of Dax McCarthy but I thought he was pretty good tonight

Yeah, I definitely agree about Jozy being a disappointment but still, Adu deserves some love when he actually plays good because everybody takes a dump on him every time he's not amazing

^Um, he only has 2 (?) caps with the senior team and a goal against the Mexican senior team. Outside of that he hasn't played an MLS game since November. What more could you expect out of him right now?

because every forward scores in every game they play in against a bad team

look, I'm not defending his play against Cuba but you can't expect somebody to score a goal every single game. The fact he was waiting on service from Findley/Davies (forwards who were playing outside midfield) didn't help anything either

I would certainly hope that Michael Owen could have scored against the U23 Cuban team

apparently you havent been wathing the epl, michael owen is awful, that was more of a compliment towards altidore, as in i think jozy is better than owen right now

^^and i dont fully expect that he scores, but he didnt do jack shit against a team we are far superior to

So you were complimenting Altidore by claiming that Michael Owen could do something that Altidore couldn't?

That makes sense

What a crappy game. We missed a PK and then scored on a PK in injury time to win 1-0. I liked the streaker though.

I'd say winning 3-0 in a winner-goes-to-the-olympics game could qualify as "trounced"

What do you want? a 10-0 thrashing every single time they play?

Kljestan, wow, ive never seen a player lose the ball or pass to the other team as much as this guy..incredible. thats about all i have to say so far from this game as its been quite boring and ive been more entertained from tww than this game.

well. overall from this tourney, i was not impressed with kljestan and mccarty, both of which stood out as not that great. i doubt kljestan will be dropped come olympics, just have that feeling. but i hope that neither of these 2 start come olympics. maybe they will be replaced by donovan, beasley, or dempsey when the 3 players older than 23 are allowed to join.

the one thing i did like from the outcome of this game, is that our set pieces for this u-23 team were terrible today, which shows that Adu is really good with them(since he didnt play today).

I thought Howard was a popular choice for one of the over 23'ers. I've also heard somebody like Cherundolo but who knows. It's probably a pretty fair guess that LA don't want Donovan gone, considering they're going to need all the help they can get.

yea, the best 3 in my mind are Howard, Dempsey, and Beasley, but i have no idea how beasley is gonna be after that injury he had/still has?. so if no beasley, then id have to say donovan i guess. when are the olympics though? cause im wondering if the european clubs will be starting back up while this is going on

thats a pretty strong mostly euro based squad right there..

US up 2-0 in the first half so far against Poland, both goals off set pieces. Donovan placed the ball well on both goals, with Bocanegra heading in the first off a free kick, and Onyewu heading in the 2nd off a corner. maybe landon saw adu's recent performances with the u-23s and decided to step up his free kicks
