Portugal are like the giants without the titles, meaning even when they win they make it competitive, and Jogi's trying to prove his senior thesis that even with an infinite supply of talent a single coach with infinitely awful instincts and abilities can sink the team. So Ghana's really the only team who might blow you out.

Been wanting a Dempsey jersey for a while now, but unfortunately these WC kits are ****.

I have a blank 2010 WC jersey in the blue. Actually got it for like $30 on clearance when they released the next kit. Maybe I'll just get the Dempsey stuff added to it.

That Dempsey video reminds me that I need to talk about Jamaica.

Played Serbia a week ago and apart from the first 20 minutes we actually looked the better team. Only lost 2-1. Few days ago we played great against Switzerland, only lost 1-0 after an 80th minute goal. Two great performances and another two games against Egypt and France next week.

Gets even better with us being invited to the 2015 Copa America and if we win the Caribbean Cup we'll be at the 2016 Copa America Centenario. So in preparation for WCQ we're probably going to have the 2014 Caribbean Cup; 2015 Gold Cup; 2015 Copa America; 2016 Copa America Centenario.

Everything is falling into place. We're going to Russia in 2018 led by our German maestro Winny Schafer!

I actually like the red, white, and blue one but the white one is pure rubbish. I really like the kits they wore in 2010 with the diagonal slash the best.

I love the Waldo's. I wish they kept them, they could have easily become synonymous with the US national team like the Croat checkers, Japan's blue jerseys, or Brazil's Canary yellow.

The 2010 kits were awesome. I hate the 2014 kits.

The red, white, and blue one looks like a Russia or Costa Rica kit to me. The blue is too bright/light. We wear navy dammit. Unless its faded denim.

I kind of agree with this. I don't the design is bad, it would work for a number of other countries, but it doesn't really fit us.

They do look like Russia but navy blue isn't really the color of our flag so the lighter blue makes sense.

Reading that Turkey was suppose to be a tough test for us. But looking on the index they were # 39 on Fifa's list. Also, our CB's was not communicating well, and the refs were not calling as many fouls as they should, both ways.

So, like my knowledge of FIFA rankings shows, I do not know much about international soccer, and I am trying to learn.

So, will Manchester City treat NYCFC like a developmental league? Or something to the sorts? I remember playing games back in the day that US and European leagues go at different times, could this help out too?

I imagine some younger guys will go out on loan after the Premiership ends to get gametime. We shall see. The bigger thing is that they already have top of the line scouting department. They may get some higher upside guys that are too risky for the EPL team to have.

It will be used for some development sure, but there are few advantages in sending players to the MLS. If the players aren't playing much in Europe, they may be fine to spend the summer playing in the MLS, but otherwise even young, developmental players need a certain amount of rest. The top guys are going to stay either in-house or get loaned to a European team that will face tougher competition than what the MLS offers. The real advantage of the NYC team is that it puts the Man City name out there that much more.

We used to always make fun of Cuautehmoc Blanco because of this. He was slow and fat towards the end of his career, but he was that guy that you play with in pickup that can't do anything physically anymore but still makes some sick passes and hits the open shots. We would always joke that he'd come out replenished in the second half due to his sixer of Tecate.
