Originally posted by SeitseI agree it will be USA-Mexico in the final. The other teams are not impressive and even Panama was unconvincing in beating USA.
The tournament is always geared towards Mexico and the US
facing each other in the final. That's where the business is.
I think the US is solid, though. Not as in previous years but a
side to be reckoned with. I wonder what the future will be
once Donovan retires.
Originally posted by Shallow BlueAnything is possible. Mexico isn't exactly great right now and tends to wilt under the spotlight. Jamaica plays good football and is a stronger opponent than Panama so USA has their hands full. If they can overcome the early match doldrums that seems like their modus operandi since the WC then they should take care of business.
It would be amusing if the final were Jamaica - Panama, right enough. But it'll probably be Mexico - USA. Again.

I have greater confidence in them if they play how they did 2nd half against Panama. Just need to finsih opportunities.
Bob Bradley is sucking big time. He hasn't gotten much better since the World Cup so that is hardly inspiring. The players have been playing without heart and without determination. Panama has a decent team, but they really shouldn't be able to outplay us the way they did.
I'm not feeling very confident that we'll beat Jamaica...and credit to Jamaica, they have a solid team.
Mexico should win the cup. I'll be shocked if they don't.
