We should have had the Women play in the Concacaf Gold Cup.  They could have done better than 4th.
CHP sold out.  I declare Nick McEntyre our Chancellor-In-Exile!

Big match this Saturday night on FS1 - USA vs Mexico playoff (@ the Rose Bowl) for a single spot in the 2017 Confederations Cup (in Russia).  http://www.fifa.com/confederationscup/

CONCACAF was allocating tix for an even crowd (no home field advantage): http://www.si.com/planet-futbol/2015/08/27/usa-mexico-rose-bowl-ticket-allocation-concacaf-confederations-cup

The USA had this in the bag - if they had won the Gold Cup this summer, they'd already be in the tournament. Instead, they now have to beat Mexico to ensure their place.

We missed the last one. I'd really like to see us make this field, especially with the youth movement Klinsmann is pushing. Would be fantastic experience for the next World Cup.

Rosters are set: http://www.si.com/planet-futbol/2015/10/03/usa-roster-mexico-concacaf-cup-playoff-confederations

This is a bye week for the Panthers and the Niners, so this just moved up to first position for my sports weekend.

Thanks for the reminder. I have a feeling US supporters will be in the minority for this match though.

World Cup qualifier vs Mexico Friday 11th vs Mexico.

Roster:



Some notable absences, including Dempsey and Casstommy's favorite.

It's weird not seeing Dempsey on the roster. Those heart problems that have sidelined him for the last bit of the MLS season may be career ending. I hope not.....

Lala's says that Arena was told to forget development, etc for now... Just qualify. Leads to some interesting roster changes.

I know almost nothing about soccer, but would the artificial turf with its permanent marking be a problem for soccer?  Don't they use a different size field...er, pitch?

clt says both fields are rectangular. problem solved.

we can plant grass on the artificial turf, then remove it when needed.

A soccer field tends to be wider than a football field. Players mention that the ball also moves faster and bounces higher when they play on turf compared to grass. And that there is a higher risk of injury.
Madness is the emergency exit. You can just step outside, and close the door on all those dreadful things that happened. You can lock them away... forever.

What a shock, Arena favoring MLS players.
This is the January camp, and is not during an official international break. Thus, most Euro clubs are opting not to release players. MLS is in the offseason.


Jan camp has always been MLS heavy with an occasional fringe Euro player sprinkled in. No way Brooks, Johnson, Wood, etc. are left off the qualifying roster.
This signature is small because I'm not a jerk.

Not that excited about that roster. I assume it's because our best have other commitments.

It is not abnormal for the US to take a B-squad to the Gold Cup.  Lest we forget the 2013 edition (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_CONCACAF_Gold_Cup) where we won it all and Chris Wondowski scored 5 goals...


Yes, Donovan was also on that roster, but he was coming off of a six month sabbatical. The rest of the roster was a solid B-squad, just like this one.


Mexico will also take a B-squad to the Gold Cup since they have the A-squad participating in the Confederations Cup in Russia right now.


That group doesn't look sexy but there is a lot of experience within the selected defenders.  Smart move by Arena imo to focus on experience there and youth/inexperience elsewhere.  It's definitely a good enough roster to win the crap shoot second rate tournament that is the Gold Cup.


No point in calling in the top guys as they are either in the midst of their MLS seasons or getting read to start pre-season training with their European club teams.


PS: I'll be in Nashville for the match against Panama on 7/8/17!

Watched the Argentina/Peru match last night.  Hard to believe Argentina may not qualify.  Will be watching the US match tonight with friends.

Just about a must win game.  I do wonder how hard Mexico and Costa Rica will play against our competitors for the last spot, Panama (plays Costa Rica Tues.) and Honduras (vs. CR Friday, Mex. Tues.), given they've already or essentially already qualified. The USA gifted Mexico a spot last time at the expense of Panama, so hopefully they play their best. But USMNT needs to assume that won't happen and play with the kind of intensity that will get them 2 wins.

This team has played really poorly for a while now, but hopefully we can squeeze into that 3rd place spot, and then it really won't matter. By the time the World Cup comes around, we may be seeing some new / improved players emerge to make the team more competitive in Russia.
