Ask Brian Ching

Your turn folks!

We're taking questions for U.S. forward Brian Ching, who played an instrumental role in the USA's 3-2 win on Jan. 24 against Sweden. Ching earned the foul that set up Sacha Kljestan's free kick, then magnificently took down a long ball from Danny Califf and teed up Kljestan for his third goal.

Ching is no stranger to finding the back of the net on his own, scoring four goals in World Cup qualifying last year to equal the team best in 2008.

Submit your questions and we'll sift through the best for Brian.

Tell Brian this is from me. OK He knows me.

My question is which country does he look forward to facing most and which defense is the toughest to get past?

And how hard is it being roommates with Stu?

Thanks for givng your all on the pitch for the USA! How tough is it qualifying for 2010 with a different group than that which might travel to S.A.? I mean is the
glue, the geometry of the team, the mentality change with the personnell? That said I completely trust Coach and think he is just looking fr a few untapped gems to join the rest of the senior side once the Mexico game is done? Whaddya think? GO STATES!!!!!!!!!!

If you had good position in the penalty box, which USMNT player that you've ever played with would you want crossing you the ball? Basically, who do you think provides the best service?

What does it feel like being the most consistently underappreciated "veteran" player on the USMNT. Playing the "holding forward", back to the goal, little glory, all guts, glue guy. Taking the punishment of qualification not knowing whether you'll be replaced for the WC games because you're "too old" at ~30, while contributing to 70+ % of offensive production during qualification?

Just wondering what your pregame ritual is.

Hey Brian,

What was the soccer like living in Hawaii? How popular or unpopular is it? Are there some pretty good players that could be found in Hawaii? It seems like people tend to forget about Hawaii sometimes.

Go get em against Mexico!

Steve said...

What's your best soccer memory? What was the most difficult team to play against when you were with the MNT?

Douglas said...

My questino is when can Brian use his Hawaii connection with Barack Obama to get the new President's support behind a US World Cup bid for 2018?€

Aloha! Not soccer related: how often do you get to go home? How tough would it be to get the islanders to drop the football and play some football? Magalo
