    WC qualifier tonight vs Guatemala is on that shady beIN sports channel. And comcast still doesn't have it in HD. They are the worst....I can't believe they still have channels available only in standard definition. Soccer is just about unwatchable in standard definition.

    That sucks. Verizon has it in hd and I love it. Tons of Barcelona and Madrid games.

    Glad to see the U23 team also has a garbage defensive strategy....fuck
    I know. I used to get it in HD with my old company RCN when I lived in the city. Used to watch Messi play all the time.

    Nice result from U-23 team with the tie on the road. Hopefully they take care of business on the home end and get to the Olympics.

    Awful. Didn't see it, but sounds like Brooks and Besler being out was huge.

    I guess...it was pitiful. Flat and klinsman had 6 guys playing out of position. At this point after the last 14 months or so of results, honestly worried about this team qualifying for Russia

    Not worried about getting out of this round, but definitely concerned about getting through the hexagonal if they continue to put forth these type of efforts.

    Also, I really don't understand why Klinsmann continues to play Diskerud. He clearly cannot play at this level. Howard getting the start was an interesting choice as well...hasn't started in a couple months for Everton.

    Absolutely awful. I wanna say I dunno wtf happened, but it was pretty fucking clear exactly what happened. Bein Sports is available in HD on DirectTv if that helps. I have the same issue with FS2, on Time Warner it's SD only, but on Verizon it's HD. It's annoying as anything, impossible to watch in SD imo.

    And cliffy, if it makes you feel any better, Mix plays better for the nats than he does for us here in the city.

    Yep, definitely.

    Some very odd choices. I get that beckerman probably won't be on the World Cup team but they could have used him in the middle. Howard didn't have a chance on either goal, but yeah. Just awful.

    HUGE game tonight. If they were to lose, Klinsmann would have to be fired right? The chances of them losing are pretty slim, but nothing would surprise me at this point with the way this team has played over the last year.

    A loss and he should be canned..I think the chances aren't as slim as you might think.

    As much as he should be, he won't be until they are eliminated from the WC. They can't start from scratch in group play at this point. I do think barring an unexpected run at the world cup, that he is gone the second they are eliminated.

    I think I like the darker jerseys better than what they were wearing last night. I do really like the new crest.

    Kid scored again. Playing for what is probably a top 10-15 or so team in the world. Has to make the copa team, right?

    He better be on that team. No reason for him not to be but who knows with Klinsmann. He makes some head scratching decisions.

    One of the most disappointing U.S. players in a long time. Couldn't cut it in Europe and can never stay healthy when it really matters.
