My question I wanted to ask is...where is Freddy Adu? Last year I saw him playing on our team, but now he's not even on the roster.
somewhere in Europe struggling to become the Gringo Pele
Will he be playing for us when we go to South Africa?
there's a chance, but last I heard his game can't even smell Donovan's jock
and Donovan's jock is getting pretty old...
The U.S. team is not very much fun to watch...they play well when they're they underdogs, but when they're supposed to win, or at least have parity they play awfully. Don't look for them to make it out of the group stages next year.
A good showing against Spain tomorrow would be huge for the U.S.
Raul and Iker Casillas are two of my favorite players on Real Madrid so I will be rooting for Spain. I follow Spanish Soccer 1000% times more than I follow American soccer so its hard to root for a bunch of guys I have never heard of... (Not disresepct to Jozy)

Gonna help you guys out a bit with Freddy Adu...
He currently belongs to Benfica (Portugese 1st Division team...BTW my favorite soccer team) Unfortunately Adu fell out of favor with our last coach (been fired since) & was loaned to Monaco in France (where he played very very little).
Currently he is on the US roster team in South Africa, but has yet to play. Adu has 3 years remaining on his contract with Benfica, so he'll be returning to Portugal this summer to try and make the final Benfica roster with the new coach.
I suspect he won't make the team & get loaned again or sold to another team. Personally I LOVE Freddy Adu, when he played for Benfica he did score 5 goals in very little playing time, so there's hope.
