    Based on all the chatter on this forums; sarcasm, the usmnt performance / lack-there-of against serbia over the weekend, was the game as painful & disappointing to watch for you, as it was for me?

    may as well kiss 2018WC good bye.

    I am hoping that the team watches & take responsibility for their lack of performance & poor passing & turn it around vs Jamaica...

    I get that the side which played against serbia was missing a number of influential players, but the effort displayed / what I saw from the starting 11, suggest's that a number of potential WC starters would much rather be sunning their sack on the beach vs playing.

    Am I just beating a dead horse?

    Please chime in.

    ...Serbia brought bunch a random guys from their domestic league, could not honestly call them national team since they got together a week earlier and practiced like 3-4 times before facing USMNT...now if USA could not score on this patched up group good luck with WC hopes...

    Mexico may have been the better team, but both of Jamaica's goals were quality.

    Agreed the direct kick was quality no doubt in the 1-0 win...I did not see that there was second goal called back...and there was a lot of attacking on both sides which made for an exciting game...wondering how the heavily favored USMNT will do Thursday...

    I was not paying super attention, and thought the score was 2-0. Jamaica put one in the net off a header, but it must have been called back.

    The results of this tournament mean very little. Nobody is bringing their best players.

    Actually I don't know enough about Jamaican soccer to know whether they brought their A team or B team. Jamaica actually probably brought their A team.

    I know USA and Mexico didn't bring their A team, until the semis when US brought in Dempsey and Altidore. Usually players on top European teams don't play in this tournament. When the best European based players are playing, that's when you know you have your A team.

    Can't understand why Klinsman didn't give Nagby more playing time. He seems to be one of only a few U.S. players that can dribble with the ball and create. Is there anyone that can tell me what the national team coaches see in Zusi? I just don't see it.

    But, the question is would start Nagby over Bobby Wood or Pulisic?

    Nagby is a baller.
    I would love to see a coach who has the balls to start all three, along with Dempsey.

    Completely agree, except Dempsey will be coming off the bench as a super-sub by the time the World Cup rolls around.

    I would put Dempsey in the middle between Altidore and Wood..
    Still not sold on Bradley, especially on the defensive end.
