putting Donovan on the right may counter Cole's ability to get forward.  either by forcing Cole to stay back or making him pay on counters when he is caught upfield.

on the other hand, Donovan's offensive abilities may be negated on that side with him tracking back too much to cover Cole's attacks from England's left side
 :dunno:

in this figure Donovan (from the first analytical link in the previous post) is on the left

Hmm. I'm openly rooting for South Africa, but watching on Univision (IN HD :driving: ). I'm not sure how to resolve this.

I'd say they have about a 30% chance. If somebody kneecaps Rooney, increase that chance to 50%.

Will be in MHK enrolling for EMAW-U.

Any USA v. England watch parties?

Wareham?


Can't make it to MHK, but I am meeting a buddy at the Buffalo Wildwings in Topeka.  

Another question for some more experienced soccer watchers:  If there happens to be some England fans also at the BWW, should I engage them in some smack talk, such as calling them "Wankers" and stuff, or should I lay low and not even make eye contact because they probably have tons of experience being soccer hooligans and beating opposing teams' fans up?  TIA.

I think it's bees.  Mosquitos would be an octave higher.
