Since no one posts in the gameday threads, it will be easier to just have on thread for all discussion.

Should be an interesting game. I think it is right in the middle of the MLS Playoffs so Jürgen Klinsmann might bring in some more international guys.

Two European matches now lined up in November. Should be another good test for Klinsmann and Team USA.

Well, the 2011 campaign officially ended last week with a 3-2 win over Slovenia. It has really been a year of transition for the team, mainly with the introduction of Jurgen Klinsmann as head coach.

I can't wait to see what 2012 brings along!

You can tell it means a lot to him. I feel happy for him mainly since he did take a good bit of the criticism for his play in the World Cup back in 2010.

Yes. His turnover in the Ghana match led to them going up 1-0 just five minutes into the game.

Yanks Abroad: Alex Smith’s Up-and-Down Season Down Under
US midfielder Alex Smith, right, plays for the Wellington Phoenix, New Zealand’s only entry in the A-League, the game’s top level in Australia


Posted Image

As Australia’s A-League season enters the final stretch, the Wellington Phoenix’s American midfielder Alex Smith is enjoying a remarkable comeback while aiming to lead the New Zealand-based club to its first championship.

Smith, 26, has had a season that has its seen peaks and valleys. Last year, Smith was signed by the A-League club Gold Coast United after strong seasons with lower-league teams in Australia.

During the preseason with Gold Coast, Smith sustained a minor injury and the club bought out his contract to make way for the Dutch striker Maceo Rigters. Under A-League rules, clubs are limited to five foreign players and Gold Coast’s only way to make room for Rigters was to delete Smith.

Sadly, New Zealand club soccer is kind of overlooked these days. <_< And the Wellington Phoenix participated in the FIFA Club World Cup twice recently. They beat Mazembe a few years ago.

Klinsmann's USA set up Scotland contest
(AFP) Wednesday 15 February 2012

USA has booked a 26 May friendly against Scotland as a warm-up match ahead of a 2014 FIFA World Cup™ qualifying opener against Antigua and Barbuda, the US Soccer Federation announced on Wednesday. The Americans will play Scotland in Jacksonville, Florida, and four days later face Brazil in suburban Washington. Four days after that match, they face Canada in Toronto.

Those matches will set the stage for the first CONCACAF semi-final group stage match for the Americans against the Caribbean dual-island nation on 8 June in Tampa, Florida. Antigua and Barbuda have never faced the Americans.

Jamaica and Guatemala are also in the group and only two teams will advance to next year's final round of qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. "Our focus since last summer has been to prepare this team for World Cup qualifying," US coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. "It's critical that we start qualifying off on the right foot."

Yep, and then we face Brazil four days later. Really looking forward to that one despite us being 1-15 against them all-time.
