BRADLEY OUT!!!

We need t-shirts, UF. We need t-shirts.

jjf3 said...

fuck the Judas T's, we need a T with Bradley staring vacantly into the distance with "Nice job, Sunil" as the catch-line.

And I'll gladly pay for a UF shirt on top of that...

jjf3 said...

at the end of the day, Sunil is the problem, not the coach he vetted and selected...

"Bradley Out" solves the symptom, not the systemic cause...

phil said...

How about....

USSOCCER OUT!

jjf3 said...

sounds good, Phil...

EbullientFatalist said...

Jozy and the Pussy Cats? Would that be a good t-shirt?

Trecker rips USMNT a new one: http://msn.foxsports.com/soccer/story/9697770/U.S.-fans-should-be-disgusted-after-Brazil-debacle

@EF - that would be awesome, yet sad, all at the same time...too much truth for our US minds...

@phil - I thought Trecker backed off, personally, by NOT calling for Bradley's head, only saying that his job should be in jeopardy...

did that change after I saw it?

EbullientFatalist said...

Wow. Rips DMB as well.

jjf3 said...

This is nothing personal against DMB, but unless he regains his speed, he's a useless left-footed central midfielder.

He can't play the wing, and he can't be a defender. He (I believe) is capable of better, but he needs regular playing time with any team who wants him....

The best thing about the Trecker piece is this comment from a 'Gbrasilia'"

Yes, I will suck all of you off. If you'd like to go on a date with me just send a message to my inbox.

EbullientFatalist said...

@jjf3: He is uber-critical of the team, but the problems he discusses all come from the head coach not being in control of the squad - not necessarily the players problems.

EbullientFatalist said...

Wow. That Gbrasilia went on a commenting tear there for about five minutes.

jjf3 said...

At the end of the day:

this group of 11 players should not have been on the field together. Not today. Not ever.

But I think its more important that Sunil was involved than the simple fact that DMB played...

EbullientFatalist said...

That last link is massively funny. The picture of Arshavin alone is enough to warrant a click.
