    USA were clearly the best team in their group and therefore deserve not to face Germany. I actually think they have the quality to go trough to the quarters.

    i guess its kind of like junior football elsewhere, with crowds of maybe, two or three thousand. There is some great videos of Beckham on youtube from his LA Galaxy days ,pointing at people in the crowd who are heckling him and telling them they are for it!

    I don't know for sure, but I'd say probably on the level of some of the lesser European countries?

    As for Robbie, MLS, may not be the Barclays, but your post is ridiculous.

    Attendance ranges from 9,800 to 31,000, an average of around 15,000. That really isn't bad considering that soccer isn't even in our top four sports in terms of exposure:

    It's worth pointing out that there are more USA soccer fans at the World Cup than from any other country outside Africa.

    whether its ridiculous or not is neither here nor there, many of the teams in the English premiership have relatively small crowds as well. Junior football refers not to children, but to amateur and semi professional, like you knew that. A foot in mouth episode i guess. My post was speculative and never intended to be a definitive text, you could have used discernment and deduced this from the text, the phrase, 'i guess', should have at least penetrated the nether regions rather than reverberating off the side of your head into the stratosphere. My friends have been bitchin about our American cousins, mainly due to perceived arrogance, i have up to this point dismissed it, please dont spoil it for me.

    jumbing on the bandwagan from the confederations cup?

    as for 'magor league soccer' the matches are easy on the eye for the most part, not sure where they would fit into the european ladder of football but they're not terrible.
