    So they're playing today (for anyone on the wrong side of pond :y15:, the game is on ESPN 2 KO 230 pm)


    I will only be watching (back and forth from the England game) to see our new boy Bongani Khumalo, I'll give my opinion/view on how he is as a player and how he could fit in here at Spurs.

    What are the teams? Any idea? I know the US will be fielding a pretty different squad.

    Yes, I'll be supporting the USA in this game. Is our new signing in the SA team?

    Beating any team in their home ground is never an easy task especially with a pretty young squad and if you were able to get the win with that squad then the future looks pretty bright for the US national team.

    Anyone catch any of the MLS Cup playoffs [gag]? Brek Shea gave the Galaxy a torrid time down the left flank for FC Dallas. He's got a lot of pace and strength and I'd love to see him get more time. Slide Landon behind Altidore and run a 4-2-3-1 with Dempsey on the right.

    He was average in the Colombia match, in fact he was the weak link in that match. After half time he was taken out and Dempsey had to play more minutes then he probably wanted to. That doesn't mean that he doesn't have potential though, he should get more call ups between now and the Gold Cup. Eventually I envision Donavon and Dempsey as they get older taking a more central role, Dempsey = ST and Donovan = CAM, so there may be spots open on the wings for players like him.

    Also don't forget about Sebastian Lletget, he's probably our best Attacking Midfielder/Winger prospect. Everything I've been reading is that he's doing well at West Ham, probably still sometime from first team selection though.
