OpenThread: World Cup Knockout Stage

New, 11 comments

The United States is 1-0 on days that I run an open thread, so let's keep it going!

We couldn't have picked a better spot for the team to land in the round of sixteen. Now we just have to hope that their heart, desire, and winning spirit will carry over from Wednesday.

I'm expecting to see Oguchi Onyewu return to the starting lineup as he gains fitness, and I think Maurice Edu has proven to be our best option in central midfield. But the question remaining will be whether Coach Bradley inserts Robbie Findley back in up top (note that the team is 0-0-2 with Findley starting), or turns to Herculez Gomez or Edson Buddle. If you follow this blog, then you know my preference.

Please feel free to share your thoughts before, during, and after the match. I'm wondering where everyone will be watching today. And what beverage will you be enjoying and/or crying into?
