One Step Forward, Three Steps Back...

Posted by Tfree on Jul 2, 2007 6:26:00 PM

....is exactly how I feel about the U.S. Men's National Team right now after their 3-1 loss to Paraguay.  There was a time not so long ago that the U.S. would have been expected to lose to any South American team, but not now.  The bar has been set higher than tonight's display of futility would indicate.  After all, it was only last summer that we played eventual WC champion Italy to a very credible 1-1 draw.  Yet today, we showed what a truly mediocre national side we are.  What's most disapointing is not that we lost, but how we lost.  Lot's of possession, decent passing and typically American finishing, which is to say no finishing at all.  For God's sake!  I could have slotted my Nana into a few of those opportunities and she could have delivered at least once....and she's 98 and blind (bless her).  Ahhh!  Looks like "Project 2010" is a little off track.  Actually, I'm not even sure the there is a track anymore.  The team's riding the little bus; destination AYSO.  We'll be lucky to win a game at the 2010 WC in South Africa, much less get out of our group.  When does Football season start, again?
