  1. :win:


    Same lineup as last match except Fabian Johnson is back :win:

    United States (4-3-2-1): Tim Howard; Steve Cherundolo, Clarence Goodson, Carlos Bocanegra, Fabian Johnson; Maurice Edu, Michael Bradley, Jermaine Jones; Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey; Herculez Gomez


    The left back lives! Fabian Johnson, who was a doubt for the match after missing the last two with a calf strain, is healthy and started for the United States in their World Cup qualifier against Guatemala. With Edgar Castillo already out, getting Johnson back healthy was crucial for the U.S. or they wouldn't have had anyone to play left back.

    Otherwise, this is the lineup one would expect from the U.S. Jose Francisco Torres' injury took the mystery out of the midfield and left only three options for three spots and Herculez Gomez was always going to start over the unfit Jozy Altidore considering the form he has been in.

    It's 4-3-2-1 with pressure high. The real question is whether they know how to break down a Guatemala team that will be committed to defending. At the back, all should be fine because Guatemala doesn't have much in the attack and that is doubly true considering Marco Pappa isn't starting. It's just a matter of whether the U.S. has what it takes up top.
  2. Finally football is on!

    Im loving the formation you're using, I wish England adopted it.
  3. Rofl nutmegged, USA be styling.
  4. I like it as well. Fits out personnel perfectly.
  5. Btw 4-3-2-1 is identical to 4-3-3 isn't it lol? It's a different formation in Fifa but I swear it's exactly the same. Two wingers, one striker, 3 midfields.
  6. Is this pitch massive or is it just me?
  7. Yea pretty much. The attacking mids play a little further back and less wide.

    And I think the pitch looks big because of the way the stadium is set up lol
  8. Stadium? Oh I see, olympic stadium. Fans miles away.

    Do you NEED to win this or?
  9. Probably wouldn't be good to lose lol. I think it's a double round robin in this group stage, so it wouldn't be the end of the world if we lost
  10. Fair enough. I mark hard for Clint. Sexy mofo.
  11. Not looking good early. Glad to have Johnson back though
  13. lmao I haven't a clue. this match is only available on PPV in the US because of the copyrights from the Guatemala tv station. Anyone's guess


    They look like the more dangerous side early :silva:
  14. Wow. I thought he was English but he's not, he's not American, but he's speaking English, he sounds like a mix between Pakistan and Irish.

    Anyway, Bradley imo is premier league talent. Not sure if I'm jumping the gun.
  15. He's class. He's been a starter in the Bundesliga for a few years and has been on loan to Villa before

    he's pretty young as well
  16. How old is he? He could fit well into somewhere like Swansea to prove his worth and then move onto something even bigger possibly. He seems awesome.
  17. Of course he has a give away as soon as we talk him up
  18. The title drew me in.

  19. Fucking your fault -.-

    Lmao he just took two people out with bare strength :boss1:
  20. 24. He's smart, strong, a good defender, and can put a charge in the ball. He isn't all that creative or good with his dribble, but he's solid for sure.
