    They are not just a commercial business. They are a non-profit organization with national goals, supposedly.

    We really need a decent striker up top. It makes or breaks the team. Zardes isn't it.

    p.s. I have no idea what they were doing with Steffen out there. He was really high which left him vulnerable to a chip but when the error occurred on the back pass or on the 3rd shot he just held there instead of trying to smother the ball. If you are going to play that high, you have to do it like Neuer does and play sweeper keeper. Steffen usually plays classically tight against the line. I can only think it's the US goalkeeper coaches that told him they wanted him there, maybe to support the backpass. It's not Steffen's style...if you are going to hold there in no man's land you need a keeper like De Gea that's really good with his footblocks. I haven't seen too much of him but Steffen strikes me as a hands keeper. Now they are sending him home early??? WTF are they doing back there.

    I miss strikers like Dempsey and Donovan. Fast and relentless, we are definitely missing a good striker up top.

    Says 90% of the teams in the world including pro, college and youth teams. :p But yes, I agree.

    Not sure that's accurate. I'd like a great striker up there. But we need a decent one. :rolleyes:
