Operation Recovery: USA v. England

Yesterday, we checked out the rearview mirror with a look back at the USMNT’s visit to Wembley in May 2008.

Today, we are officially 3 months away. In light of the Deuce getting loose at Juventus yesterday, we’ll go with an update of our “Damage Schematic.”

As of March 12th, here is the visual Match Fit Index for you.

    Lennon’s wewee hurts? Wow Bridge’s ex must really get around the block then. . .

    As long as Ashley Cole gets fit, I’d be happy. If I were greedy, Lennon would be cool too.

    Come on, guys. if you’re going to put a German flag next to Jones’ name then you might as well put a Canadian flag by Hargraeves’. I know he at one point played for die Deutschland, but he can and will only play for us from here on out. I know, a bit nitpicky, but would you have a Scottish flag next to Stu’s name or a Mexican flag next to JFT’s?

    Still love this thing all the same, though :>

      Totally forgot — excellent point on Hargreaves — that was an oversight more than intentional. Jones and Hargreaves are more blatant than JFT and Stu, agreed–going to fix that…

    HI-larious! But where’s Rico?

      Rico’s back in action, Doug. He’s been making the bench for Frankfurt the last two or three games.

    You also may want to put Ashley Cole in the black cloud as Cheryl Cole is definitely messing with his head and is preparing to drop bombs about their private life, etc. Ah, the flame-thrower touch of a woman scorned…

    Ashley Cole is running and jumping (in a sandpit). Should be able to start running in 2 weeks.


  9. […] Posted by matthewsf in USMNT, World Cup '10. 6 Comments How could we not issue our 2nd update to the visual Match Fit Index; what with CD9 scoring goals, Bob Bradley commenting in the Big Apple yesterday, and (sigh) Ashley Cole hounding wingers on the pitch. (Last visual) […]
