Think it will be interesting this year what do you guys think?
Expect the US to go undefeated!!! :001_302:
I'm hoping we get Group B. Two games at the Home Depot center .
Think Costa Rica will be a team to look out for Lavolpe is a good manager and could take them to that extra level.
I hope US gets a game up in Chicago. If that's the case i will be going to watch that game. When is the draw supposed to be?
[MENTION=3913]steelktm[/MENTION] It's not really a draw but a "which set ups can we profit more from" in any case I have no idea when they will announce what teams go in which group or "pots" it's kind of shameful for me at least that Canada ,USA, and Mexico are automatically in the tournament but sadly there is no profit if those 3 aren't present.
Interesting, I was just on the MNT website today and no mention of who will be playing where and when. I'd really like to see the US play in Chicago as well. I suppose a weekend match would be too much to ask for?
The competition doesn't get scheduled until after certain events because that's what determines the seeding.
I really think this one will be better than last years many of the teams look really sharp.
Yeah, several of the nations look on the up- obviously USA and Mexico, but also Costa Rica as Javi mentioned. With the rise of the Confederations Cup, teams will take it seriously.
I really hope this is the start of the slow but sure rise of competitive football in our region.
The us team will go down a goal in the first 5 mins. as usual..Bradley Sr. must hv pics of his bosses in compromising acts...
I am still wondering what youth players he will take since the sub 17 is going on right now.
No idea on that matter. Any idea what type of squad Mexico will put out?
They are SCARY!!
From todays' Washington Post:
*The Gold Cup groups and pairings won't be set by CONCACAF for at least another week or two, but it appears the United States' route will go from Detroit's Ford Field to Tampa's Raymond James Stadium and then to Kansas City's new soccer-specific arena in the first round. Assuming they win the group, the Americans would likely play a quarterfinal at Washington's RFK Stadium on June 19. Defending champion Mexico seems set to play in Dallas, Charlotte and Chicago (Soldier Field) before heading to New Jersey's Meadowlands for the quarters. Houston's Reliant Stadium will host the June 22 semifinals and the Rose Bowl is set to stage the June 25 final.
KC is about a five or six hour drive for me. Further than Chicago, but still doable!

Got to go last year in Dallas oh I am so ready to go this year to!
Would really like to take my son to that game, but with what is already on the books for that week I don't think it'll happen.
I think i'll make it to at least one match in LA. It depends on what I have going on.
depending on the date if they are playing up in detroit then i may try and make that as it's only a 5.5 hour drive from me. hopefully tickets aren't too much and they put grass up in there because i hate turf fields. sports should all be on grass not turf.
Has anyone played football on some of that new turf, FieldTurf is the official name. It's not your traditional plastic pitch it's designed to mimic a real field. The New Meadowlands has it.
Yeah i've ran on it and my sister has played field hockey on it. she didn't like it at all. Cardinal Stadium though here in Louisville were one of the first stadiums to put this in. just don't feel soccer should be played on it.
Still staying in a concacaf subject I heard that the concacaf champions league was rigged so that at least one MLS team would make it to the final nothing solid tho but someone said they fixed the drawings.
I don't think they did that. what i think they did to help the MLS teams in it (because it's just C-Bus and RSL, not really big market MLS) is to have the two play each other in this round since MLS is still like 3 or 4 weeks away from starting their season while Mexico and the other Central American leagues have been going for a couple 3 or 4 weeks now. That way once the semi-final round comes up the MLS team that advanced would have a couple more games so they would be a little more competitive than in years previous.
Well that's pretty much what I think but still concacaf are evil lol.
I play on it weekly. The main difference that I notice is that the ball bounces higher than it would on grass.
Hmmm I wonder if they could eliminate that if it was designed specifically for football.
From what i read as well for older players it is harder on their knees than normal grass. For me though sports that play on grass should be on grass. none of this field turf stuff. this goes for MLB and NFL.
Yeah that's how I am to I wonder what kind of long term effect this turf stuff has.
i hate caoncacaf canada to cheated again
