Well, that was humiliating. I expected us to lose to the Czechs. But I expected at least a goal, and cannot believe that Keller – who’s usually rock solid – gave up three. (It’s not Keller’s fault alone. Our back line looked like crap today.)
Why aren’t we starting Eddie Johnson? He’s clearly the most creative foot we’ve got up front nowadays. Donovan was a disappointment – Johnson and Reyna are the only bright spots I can see in an otherwise miserable game. (And goddam! the Czechs are good. If Nedved wants to retire, maybe he could come play midfield for the US national team for four years or so…)
Okay, now I’m putting on my Ghana gold shirt and heading out to Istanbul. Maybe the other team I’m pulling for will redeem an otherwise frustrating football day.
