Now that the World Cup draw has settled in, plans must be made to stage another tourney opening upset because that is the only path to a knockout bracket with Brazil waaaay on the other side.
Thursday December 22, 2005
Less than six months remain until the World Cup, and it is time once again to check where everyone stands on the US ladder.

Go ahead… blame it on me if you must. I went shooting off my mouth about how I wasn't going to hope for an easy draw on Friday night. Nope, I wanted a sturdy challenge.

We know that most sports fans harbor fantasies of being players, managers, and/or agents. Knowing that we can't do much to help our readers actually achieve any of the above ambitions, we've decided to do the next best thing and create an opportunity to get inside the minds of players, managers, and agents.

"…I did drift down to California and thought, I like this country, I could live here... America would be a fresh start."
Tuesday November 22, 2005
As a group, we soccer fans here in the States tend to spend a lot of time being negative about the state of our beloved game because, well... MLS isn't the NFL and US Soccer isn't the scourge of the world stage that USA Basketball is (err, was). Since it's getting to be that time of year, I thought I would spend a little time reminding everyone of all the things that we, as soccer fans, should be thankful for as we sit down to eat our turkey and concoct our own fantasies about what might happen in Germany next summer.

Only seven months remain until World Cup 2006, and the race for a place in Bruce Arena's final 23-man World Cup roster is heating up.

Scotland's press reacted to the USA's visit with a mixture of praise and admiration, condescension and disinterest.

Before we get to the mail, I’d like to point out three positive things that I’ve seen related to MLS since the last time I wrote a column. I apologize if it seems like these items are biased towards DC United but they are because, well, that’s where I live and what I get to see more than anything else.

The October edition displays a growing concern over injured players; Steve Cherundolo, Cory Gibbs and Eddie Johnson have lost in status due to lower body setbacks.

I read 16 Candles... and Neal is right. The US needs to improve the level of competitive play its national teams engage in to continue the improvements of the last decade-and-a-half. Without such improvement, the best we can realistically hope for is to remain in the unsatisfactory position of beaing a big fish in the small pond. Nobody watching soccer the way we do is ready to settle for that, however much fun it is having finally turned the table on Mexico.

So, a lot has been going on recently and it's been a while – too long, perhaps – since you have had your say. Since the last mailbag, we've launched our http://www.yanks-abroad.com/content.php?mode=extratime&id=001041Matchmaker[endlink] feature by finding compelling opportunities for Landon Donovan with either Middlesbrough or Ajax, updated our http://www.yanks-abroad.com/content.php?mode=extratime&id=001050predictions for the World Cup Roster[endlink], and run the second part of my http://www.yanks-abroad.com/content.php?mode=extratime&id=001058Sixteen Candles[endlink] feature on how to accelerate the evolution of US Soccer and MLS. Everyone at YA would like to thank you for continuing to send us your thoughts. With so much mail to catch up on, we're going to do this in two parts. First we'll address your comments on Landon in Europe and then next time we'll look at your comments on Sixteen Candles Part Two.

About a month ago, in the wake of the Gold Cup and the series of matches between MLS clubs and some famous European clubs (and Fulham), I wrote an article likening America to teenagers in our footballing development. I argued that, like most teenagers, we have aspirations of reaching adulthood immediately, if not sooner, because in most other sporting endeavors we are among the world's powers even if the mass market doesn't give a crap about that sport on a day-to-day basis.

Only nine months remain until World Cup 2006, and the race for a place in Bruce Arena's final 23-man World Cup roster is well underway. You might be wondering who will travel to Germany and who will watch on television with the rest of you... well, YA is here to help!

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
