Re: ARG v Peru

Went to bed at half time, finished nil nil and with Chile winning the argies drop to 6th in the group (top 4 qualify and 5th goes into a playoff)  with 1 game left to play.

Re: ARG v Peru

I see Argentina moved the game from where they normally play the Monumental (River Plate) to the smaller La Bombonera (Boca Juniors) stadium. With fans closer to the pitch they thought it would be much more intimidating.

0-0 isn`t a good result but it could have been much worse. After 89 minutes Colombia were leading at home to Paraguay 1-0 and managed to lose 1-2.

Argentina have got to play in Quito now, so oxygen masks at the ready. On the plus side the two teams above them Peru and Colombia play each other.

If Argentina do finish 5th it`s a 2 legged tie against New Zealand

Messi v Wood smile

US out of it all together - looks like they didn't deserve anything else

You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence is not an event - it is a habit.

Re: ARG v Peru

Yes, USA got what they deserved, fuck all. It was like watching Ingerlernd, them strolling around not doing much while they were 2 nowt down, then suddenly realizing with 10 mins to go that they were screwed. All very Shteve McLaren. Lots of pissed off Yanks in the pub last night. There'll be a right shake up at US Soccer.

Snatching misery from the jaws of glory since, ooooooh, 1973?

They are very transitional at the moment. They've relied on the old gaurd for far too long and have a lot of dead wood to shift out. They've got the basis of a decent 11 to build back on, with some decent u23 & u17 players coming through. But they need a change of coach/manager. Klinsmann didn't work out & neither has Arena. Saying that Pulisic looks one hell of a player at just 19 yrs.

Re: ARG v Peru

Pulisic is superb when he's on song, which isn't always (largely cos he's 19). Sunil Gulati should take a lot of the blame, firing Bradley and giving Klinsmann too long a contract then losing his bottle and firing him, and all the German American players discarded. Need a new head of US Soccer, new head coach.

Re: ARG v Peru

Be interesting to see how US reacts to this. MLS bosses seem very reluctant to introduce promotion/relegation system, but grassroots game needs a boost/reason to exist beyond farm system.

Water polo and meeting deadlines.
