    • 'Not very well' would be my guess....top half rather than top 6.

      • An electric match Brazil v. USA in the U20 World Cup.

        Adu is actually producing.

        Altidore is a stud. A clinical finisher. I like him quite a bit. He came out of nowhere at the end of last season (October in the States).

        • Adu had a hat trick in the game prior. Though Adu seems like he's best in a midfield role, and Altidore doing the striker work.

          • Not always fair to judge a game from just ten minutes, but it did indeed look like a good one. Both sides had plenty of players that showed good ball control and technique despite a high tempo.

            Just came home from a match myself. Perhaps not the same level of technique and ball control, but I'm pleased. Sent an SMS to my significant other and stated that we ever had a son, his first name had to be "Bobbie Friberg Jos da Cruz"!

            I will not reveal the answer I got...

            • Hey Barcodes - wanna buy William Gallas? You could do with a 'quality' defender. He doesn't shirk, moan, and slag off his club all the time - honest.

                • Gallas is a good player, both the 'moans' he's had with the Arse and Chelski have been legitimate....IMHO.

                  • Brazil just beat Urugay in the Copa America semi on penalties. The Brazilian keeper was practically sat on the penalty spot when he saved the last penalty.

                      • His other goal was fantastic too. He handled a ball off the outside of his left foot.

                            He did it when they were already winning with the pressure off, and a penalty that was given from a Tevez dive Mexico also hit the bar and post too at 0-0, when your lucks not in...

                            • Great cover story in Sports Illustrated about Beckham coming to LA (btw, VERY Real Madrid of the LA Galaxy with their new uniforms):



                              http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...0/beckham0716/

                              A lot of optimism in the article, but I do think the Becks will have a pretty decent sized impact on soccer in the US. Sure, the media hype will die down a bit from where it is now, but Beckham will be a very big draw for the next few years and will lead to much greater interest for the MLS (which has a brand spanking new TV deal with ESPN) and may even convince some other European players who are not over the hill to come across the pond as well.

                              • I hope he does well.

                                Angel who couldn't buy a goal in the EPL already has 9 goals in 8 games for New York, so I expect Beckham to score a few, and rack up plenty of assists. If he stays fit.
