Bob Bradley deserves a medal for this lineup.

Impressive.

WOW. WTG Bob Bradley for trying something different and attack oriented on the road. I love it!

This team is an absolute embarrassment!!! They don't even deserve to be on the same field with costa rica. I will bleed red, white and blue till the end but i actually had to turn this game off much like the game vs the czech republic in the 2006 WC. What was wrong with this team tonite. If this is what we can expect in the WC next year, then 3 games and out again!

disgraceful, the only lineup issue i have is wynne over spector. other than that i liked it. No one wanted it. I am disgusted by this game. I lost a lot of respect for some of these guys i dont care how bad the turf is or saprissa

The U.S Mens team sucks. These guys are pretenders and not contenders.They are soft,slow and lack the verve to succeed.They were totally dominated by the Ticos and they should be ashamed for the way they performed tonight. It is ridiculous that this could really be the best team the US can field. Fans get ready for another disappointing WC assuming they make it there.

I have to agree with the guys above me. Those goals looked silly easy. The defense was just downright ridiculous. Did you all see that last goal. It honestly looked like an 18 year old on a playground running circles around two stammering two year olds. I almost threw up!

Torres was best player of 1st half.

Why sub?

Chuck said...

Outside backs were both poor choices in this lineup. DMB isn't the solution. Just because he's left-footed doesn't justify his start IMO. MW has speed and NO balls skills!

yep, Embarrassed is the only word for it. They looked absoulutley terrible. I'll be in Chicago on Sat. and I want some real heads to roll after this one. Beasley CAN NOT play in the back. Period. I'd like to see Adu get the start on Sat. as well. He may have to now, with Bradley and Shasha out.

That was embarrassing ... Torres was the only player worth a damn and he gets subbed??? Beasley should either be put up ont he wing or out to pasture, he is NOT a defender!!!
