Very disappointing. Time to see Bob as the unimaginative and regressive influence he truly is. Things need to change, sooner the better.

Not a good fortnight for us at all. 1-2 to Mexico shortly after that 0-5 humiliation, U20s losing to Australia 1-3, and U18s drawing Israel and Germany 1-1.

Count your lucky stars that US plays in CONCACAF, which virtually ensures them of a spot in WC every time, and with it, bloated expectations. This system is a joke as I see it. On the basis of strength, this region ( US, Mexico and bunch of smaller Islands and Central American states ) do not deserve 3.5 berths in the WC. It should be maximum of 2. As of now, Africa has 5, Asia 4.5, South America 4.5 and CONCACAF 3.5. It is unfair to Asia and Africa. Even, Europe shouldn't have more than 11 ( right now 13 ). Only 2 spots will make sure US faces tougher time to qualify, thus making them mentally stronger ( along with Mexico ). Or, merging this CONCACAF with South America region will be a even better proposition, with tougher competetion, against different climates,altitude , massive crowd etc will lead to better players accustomated to hardship. It is too easy for US to qualify. FIFA wants that for sure and hence this unfair set up which actually hinders the progress. The fear of missing the WC can never be underestimated.

I don't care who does what. We deserve to play in the WC finals. Direct entry. The format is penalty shoot out with BD facing no goalies.

I totally agree with Beamer bhai here about the CONCACAF's 3.5 berths! What is it for South Amarica?

2.5 is the right number for CONCACAF. Lets face it, other than USA, Mexico, Costa Rica and nowadays Honduras, none of the teams from this region are likely to compete well against good sides from South America, Europe and Africa.

Give the extra place to South America, I say.
