Just watched this. I was entertained.

Luckily Jozy missed on his first touch so the ball didn't skip away from him.

Now I see that I was wrong to ask why Charlie Davies took so long to publicly appologize for skipping curfew.

Very entertaining match that was anything but a "friendly"

I'm very excited about Jermaine Jones and hope he plays at this level through the next Cup. He likely would have made a huge difference in South Africa.

Did we only make one sub? Isn't that rather unusual for a friendly?

Know it was a friendly, but am not amused. I can't remember a game with more 3v2, 4v2 breakdowns in defense. And I just don't think Edu makes that much sense as a center back, there are plenty of guys who do this for a living. Too many botched headers and lax marking, he's better when given space to home in on people.

Also disappointed by the lack of width, and sloppiness all around. We can dismiss this because Donovan wasn't playing, except that we made many of the same mistakes against Brazil.

Happy 10/10/10

Taking a cue from United, I started very strong and then, after mile 16, really blew it in today's Chicago marathon...hot as hell.

Polish news here is saying they thought this would be anything but friendly, extremely entertaining match.

DCB23: Was it a hamstring, hernia, or just a lack of talent?

So with Edu, Feilhaber, Torres, Badley and now Jones, can we leave Ricardo Clark at home from now on?

What ever happened to Edgar Castillo?

As an American, I am used to having no strikers. I have come to accept that. But there is no excuse for the sloppy, poor defense that we played. We used to be good at that.

I270...the third choice most definitiely! No Talent.
