USA v. Portugal Primer: Klinsmannati

Think about it... maybe it's been sitting there in front of our eyes all along.

Think about it….

Occam’s Razor? Are US fans and media missing the obvious?

Maybe clues to the Klinsminati are sitting there right before out eyes.

The following is all in good fun…or is it?

USA-Ghana Line-Up:

Howard; Johnson, Cameron, Besler, Beasley; Beckerman, Jones, Bradley, Bedoya, Dempsey, Altidore

USA-Nigeria Line-up:

Howard; Johnson, Cameron, Besler, Beasley; Beckerman, Jones, Bradley, Bedoya, Dempsey, Altidore

100% Match!

Teased: Nigeria obviously the comp for Ghana. The US sets its defense and lo and behold the same starting line-up appears. That game played in sweltering heat at about the same time.

Wait a second... who the f*ck is this guy?!

Wait a second… who the f*ck is this guy?!

USA-Turkey Line-Up:

Howard; Johnson, Cameron, Besler, Chandler; Jones, Davis, Bradley, Zusi, Dempsey, Altidore

USA-Portugal Line-Up?:

Howard; Johnson, Cameron, Besler, Chandler; Davis, Jones, Bradley, Zusi, Dempsey, *[Altidore]

Match: ?

Teased: The US plays on heavy legs a few days later.

Turkey is obviously the comp for Portugal. The US just got worked over on their left flank with DaMarcus Beasley doing the equivalent of shuttle runs with a dog on his *ss. Flip-flopping Chandler and Davis essentially for Jones and Beasley makes some sense. Davis would remain wide, thwarting Joao Pereira’s overlaps…he doesn’t come central from Portugal’s RB spot ever. Tim Chandler plays Nani’s incuts on his stronger leg.

Zusi used to cover over Fabian Johnson for what would’ve been Fabio Coentrao

USA-Azerbaijan Line-up:

Howard; Johnson, Cameron, Besler, Beasley; Jones, Bradley, Bedoya, Zusi, Wondo [Dempsey injured....or was he?!], Altidore

USA-Germany Line-Up?:

Howard; Johnson, Cameron, Besler, Beasley; Jones, Bradley, Bedoya, Zusi, Dempsey?, Altidore?

Match: ?

Teased: Azerbaijan’s Ring of Fire or whatever is somehow the comp for Germany. Well, Berti Vogts is their coach and all.

The US keeps the shielding shuttlers Zusi and Bedoya narrow on defense and then wide to go against Germany’s centerbacks!

CALL TOM HANKS!

Think about it.

Did Klinsmann perhaps know that Dempsey would get injured by Germany? Or did he know that the US might have the group sewn up and he could rest the captain?

Maybe we might win the whole f*cking thing after all!

    I will only believe it if the Mexico friendly was somehow a primer for our eventual knockout round opponent… (Belgium? Russia? Don’t see it)

    The real kick will be if Klinsmann somehow (in a dream’s dream) gets the US to win the group to send Germany over to other side of the bracket with the likes of (probably) Argentina, the Netherlands, and Italy.
