Similar to how we get excited that college football is here just cause there's a game, any game in the third weekend of August, known as week 0, when the only game will be Abilene Christian and Georgia State, we have the week 0 of world cup soccer qualifying, with the Asia Confederation having their first six qualifying games including Mongolia, Cambodia, Guam, etc. who are the Abilene Christians of soccer. For the right to move to the second round of qualifying.

USA losing to Jamaica tonight isn’t giving much hope for WCQ, even if it was “just a friendly” with an “experimental roster”

Aside from Bradley and Altidore that team was very inexperienced. I'm just glad Arena isn't around. Hopefully we really do have a plan moving forward.

Jamaica played well, but let’s be real, half their team plays in the USL. Inexperience doesn’t excuse professional soccer players from not being able to complete passes of 10 yards.

I’m not totally convinced Arena deserves as much blame as he got, and I’m definitely not convinced yet that Berhalter is any better.

I didn't watch any of the game just saw the line up and caps. You are correct we should be able to beat a usl all star team with ease. I don't know anything about Berhalter but he better get things going early in qualifying.

This one, while mitigated by being a meaningless friendly and being without a few of our top players, is aggravated by being AT HOME. We thought it was bad losing to Trinidad or Guatemala down there. Even Costa Rica down there, until we lose to them at home.
