    I really enjoyed watching that game today. . .even if we didn't win. I was literally GLUED to my TV, not even able to multitask, it was SO EXCITING! And this is coming from someone who has often trouble sitting through sports games because of boredom. And i have a bunch of Ghanaian friends too so i was happy for them. That said, i think the US did a GREAT job! The only thing I might suggest is for them to pay attention to each other a bit more and to improve their on-the-spot strategizing. There were times when getting the ball was pretty much a free for all, and the US players were just standing there. And also the couple times when the ball was within scoring range and only 1-2 players there to handle it, surrounded by a wall of Ghanaians. So no as far as I could tell, i dont think the loss was any particular player's fault. It was a relative weakness of teamwork that was responsible for the loss (and probably for the other tied games not being a win).


    Can't comment much on individual player quality though--they're all great to me!!

    Doesn't quite come across Fe-POLR to me.

    Yeah, I'm taking that back.

    Here's another clip:

    SLI is off the table Aside from apparent lack of Fe-PoLR, he doesn't have the physical grace I associate w SXIs [see 0:35].

    Nice to see that there are also football fans in the US.

    I did also watch the game yesterday. I thought it was great, interesting until the last minute. However, both teams had problems in scoring, the US players had several major chances where the ball just had to go into the net. But still, it was much fun to watch. It was also clear to see that the US team was very committed and that they wanted to win. I just hope Germany isn't going to lose today. :wink:

    What I saw about Donovan points out that he is a rather serious person. After he shot the penalty his cheering was quite limited, unlike that of other players which cheer a penalty goal like one directly scored from the game. I wouldn't say it's Fe-Polr, but it's not one of his valued functions, in my opinion. Also, he appears to be introvert to me, judging by the interview. Maybe it's ESI, but I'm not sure about that, I was just connecting the hints how I've interpreted them.

    Germany's a superb team. They aren't going to lose.

    And I agree Donovan isn't Fe-valuing.

    Yeah........ there are some. Not as many as I'd prefer.

    I honestly think that the bogus calls and lack of reviewing calls is going to turn Americans away from soccer some. We review everything. I h ope Americans don't get pissy about this world cup experience.

    Fi dominant is likely, he seems aware of the Fe but politely ignores it simultaneously
    I don't know a lot about him but I read a couple interviews and I could see EII a bit more than Ne PoLR. He dose a lot of vacillating when he speaks, like "probably [not]", "In my opinion", "perhaps", etc. The constant use of irresolute answers and opinions seems odd for an Se ego
