Lots of Yanks not getting playing time over there...

At least Gooch scored...

i'm pretty sure any of our guys can score an own goal. it's doing it at the other end of the pitch that seems to be so rare. donovan seems to be getting decent time in these friendly matches. anyone have insight on what this may mean for the games that count?

Its very discouraging for all these guys to not be in the squad list for the game! Its one thing to not start or even not play, but when there's no chance it makes you wonder why they're even on the team. I wish some of these guys would get loaned out or sold to teams that would play them. Adu, Altidore, Spector, etc. But other than Altidore, if they can't even play for the team they are on.....uh oh.

For the second match in a row, Jemal Johnson set up a goal for the Championship-bound MK Dons. Edu was at least in the game day line-up for Rangers, a claim that Run DMB could not make. Neither hit the field however.

Only 4 Yanks on the field at any time for a team that won... discouraging

"Not in the 18" appears all to frequently, I'm afraid.

Notice the disparity in minutes as you move from defenders to forwards, especially if you count goalkeepers!

The US cannot produce attacking players.

Hopefully Landon and Jozy will break this mold soon.
