    I hope to be. That's my birthday and I have a feeling my parents got me tickets.

    That place should be absolutely mobbed with Brazilians.

    Too expensive for me, I'll wait until Poland in October, even if it's the 2nd tier US Players.

    US looks feisty so far. Couple of great opportunities. Donovan could have drawn a penalty if he went down, but I don't see the value of going down on a soft foul in a friendly.

    Also, sounds like a big US contingent in the stands. Kind of jealous

    I wonder if "The New Meadowlands Stadium" plans on keeping the grass field for Monday night FB game?

    What would you say the split was between USA and Brazil fans?

    Heading in I was expecting a Brazil dominated crowd.

    How many more times can our defense get beaten with an over-the-top pass, or because of guys playing out of position? It's what had us playing from behind in the World Cup and Bradley has not fixed the problem. Frankly, I can't believe bradley is still our coach. Oh well, another 2-0 loss.

    Well, there is a serious talent gap between Brazil (even their B team) and the US team. I don't think it was the out of place element, it was guys like Bornstein getting blown off the ball, their defense just isn't good enough. Donovan nearly created a chance early, but all the forwards, Altidore, Buddle, Gomez, or Findley couldn't create much of a chance. I wouldn't want the US to go into a 5-4-1 shell either.

    I think Bradley did an admirable job, he got to the finals of the Confed Cup, won their region, and won their group in the World Cup. Yes, you can argue caveats for all of those things, but these things had never been achieved in modern US Soccer history. He gets **** on a lot for things out of control.

    However, I do think the US needs to go in another direction going forward. Teams do not succeed in their 2nd go around with the same coach, not the US, not Italy, not France, not anyone, not anymore.
    I hope the US finds someone who does better than Bradley, but I fear it's far more likely that they will find someone who has less success.
