Bradley really had the Americans looking sharp in their last match and sporting a nifty 4-0-1 record so far this year.
Have to wonder if they may not be the sleeper going into the Copa America.
You also have to wonder if the team may be even stronger with Tim Howard replacing Casey Keller in the nets.
On the surface, it looks like one world-clas ...[text shortened]... le and shock the world by advancing to the semis and maybe even the finals in the Copa America.
Originally posted by Red NightTrue we have many world class foreigners and Howard is never mentioned as one of them.
Romario on Keller (after the American had shut-out Brazil 1-0:
“That is the best performance by a goalkeeper I have ever seen.”
2 Seasons ago Howard was named to the Premiership Best XI, maybe they don't publicize that over in the UK since the list is always dominated by foreigners.
So yes, World Class.

Veteran International, Casey Keller, shut-out Trinidad to lead Team USA to it's 6th victory of 2007 as Bradley's bunch advanced to the Quarter Finals of the Gold Cup.
MLS stars Brian Ching and Eddie Johnson supplied the scoring as the US remained un-beaten under new head coach Bob Bradley.
London bookmakers have taken notice. The US has quietly moved up from 9th favorite into a virtual tie for fifth with Colombia and Venezuela.

Originally posted by RagnorakOf course YOU would.
Out of the above copied and pasted list, and without even knowing the fixture list, I would expect the u.s. team to finish behind Uruguay, Peru, Paraguay, Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia and Venezuela.

A vast sea of humanity who could care less what camilla and charles are up to, but living on a foggy little island isolated from the rest of the world by a mass-hysterical delusion of self-importance, you wouldn't know anything about that.
does anyone care?
