7/14/15 US ties Panama moves to Quarterfinals of Gold Cup Sat 5 pm, Indy 11 on roll

So this US Team has been outshot 51 – 20 in their 3 Gold Cup so far – granted they have 2 1 goal wins and a draw but still this is not progress by this US team.  What happened to we are going to control the pace and impose our will on CONCACAF competition.  The US again showed last night that without their creative playmaker and shotmaker in forward Clint Dempsey they absolutely lack any ability to get quality shots on goal.  Defensively, well Jurgen is one stubborn guy – but we US fans know this.  When he think he see’s something (Timmy Chandler should be a good right back hell he starts in the Bundesliga) but his body of work for the US has been subpar at best.   Alvarado in the middle – again I like him and I think he’s going to be a fine right back someday – but right now with him and Chandler on the same right side its like a big 50 yard whole just begging to be attacked with little to no resistance.  Please Jurgen put Gonzales back in the middle with someone (Brooks is ok I guess) but please please please – put someone else on the right.  If you are going to give someone experience why not Yedlin – (he’s not a winger – HE CAN’T Dribble or pass really) – but he might turn out to be a fine right back someday. The truth is Geoff Cameron is the US Best and only legit right back right now.  He has to do something – goalie Brad Guzan has saved our buts for 3 games now but eventually he’s going to let one in and we are going to lose!!  I thought Bedoya really showed his quality last night though he was noticeably still recovering from being out a while.  Zardes continues to be the most exciting new player we have- I love him up top and can only think the sky is the limit with this guy.  Will be interesting to see if Johannson can replace Altidore up top over the next few games – not feeling great with old school MLS lifers Gordon and Wondo.  So the good news is the US fans are now watching – 2.3 million watched a sold out incredibly intense atmosphere at Sporting KC park – a 100% Pro US Crowd with Sam’s Army and the American Outlaws in full voice – a scene that harkens the fever pitch that only Columbus and Seattle have matched before.  This summer of soccer with the US ladies winning the World Cup, a fantastic Copa America, MLS with more recognizable stars, the ICC starting and now The Gold Cup gives the US team a chance to really solidify this summer as a watershed time for soccer in the US.  The question is can they step up their play and impress with everyone now watching?
