My prediction was 3 or 4 - nil, so I guess we exceed expectations.

Joevin off? ???
He's not having a good game

Yeah, I see where he was deficient. A step off at times. But he also created chances. What did we get from his replacement? Added value? A lift to the tempo? More energy? What?

Sometimes you have to let players like Joevin grow into the match.

Only saw the last 35min of the game. T&T is not as bad as the record shows but we are running out of time. We still in with a chance for forth. if we string together a few wins then we right back in it.

It's frustrating as a fan. We play a pretty decent knock. But we just don't get the ball in the net...this is where quality friendlies come in...we need a miracle in CR. The US was not spectacular except for pulisic

Someone to run at them? Yeah. Otherwise, perhaps not. But I like him like that when he's outside coming in or inside going across the face of the goal. Other than that ...

Well, Pulisic scored!

Also, they didn't need to be spectacular to beat us. So ...

We still not out of it,there's a slim chance for 4th.We looked good and had we got the goal by KJ,and had Nathan Lewis not been ruled off side,who knows,as I would say,we matched the mighty USA and that was pleasing,but we didn't get the result we wanted.When your chances come you must take it,they don't come every minute,we look soft in front of goal.Edwards went for goal,when the best option was a cross to Lewis or Molino,that was a shocker,someone is not smiling on us.

Boy you spot on with that analysis. We don't appear to be outdone by these teams, CR, MEX and US...the only real thumping we got in this campaign was from Honduras. Other than that Honduras game, we weren't outclassed at all. Goals win matches and that's the bottom line.

Carlos know he effed up with that shot instead of passing the ball... everyone knew it. What a shame. Carlos did play pretty well last night though. Hyland made some mistakes and that first goal was his fault. I like Nathan, he has a lot of potential, but he gets outmanned...Molino tried his best last night.

George was not ready for pulisic it seemed. He have the wonder boy too much space.

Costa Rica gonna be a real scrap, with the odds against us. This is where our maturity and professionalism gonna come into play. They drew against Panama last night, which stacks up even more against us.

I hope to see the boys regroup and continue to believe that they can get result. They can!

It's the only area I will give the technical staff some stick. Pulisic key attribute is speed and Kevan George had a man marking job shadowing him most of the game but I would have gone for Gonsalves or even Paul as they have a bit more speed to stay with Pulisic but George is favoured given he is a better passer and with 3 CBs you have the cover for him running behind, still got away from us.

We should have taken advantage in the early stages when the US seemed to be caught off guard by our setup on the field.

 We should have gone for the jugular then, but instead, you can hear shouts of "keep it, keep it" from our bench.

Mindset. A will to win. We lack those. The minute Lawrence saw that hesitation he should have gone for it. Not try to establish a level of play at that point.

Lawrence is to blame for the loss. He had US to hang and he let his idealistic approach to the game overshadow the practical demands that were present.

Raised this very issue in a separate discussion, but framed it differently. Part of the issue is highlighted if one compares the player's ability to interrupt play when the ball is in front of him versus his recovery speed/read of movement not immediately in front of him.

Could a correction have been made that kept George on the field (to benefit from his positives while adjusting for the problem)?

The balance in the center of the park presents a challenge when neither player can deliver a penetrating vertical pass. Not effective football when you have a player in an advanced position showing for an entry ball or available for one.

The game was going towards us at the end of the first half. We actually had a chance. Performance is not that bad. Just 2 mistakes  cost the game.

Molino played his heart out.

Ticos  tied Panama last night in San Jose. We can get a result.

That Lewis goal they called back for offside was covfefe

Quote
EXPLAINING THE OFFSIDE LAW: LAW 11

The offside law (Law 11) is the most argued-over law wherever in the world the game of football is played, even though itís pretty simple. Hereís how it works.

A player is caught offside if heís nearer to the opponentsí goal than both the ball and the second-last opponent when his team-mate plays the ball. In other words, a player canít receive the ball from a team-mate unless there are at least two players either level with him or between him and the goal.

It is not an offence in itself to be offside. A player is only penalised for being offside if he is deemed to be involved in active play. So a player can only be called offside if he is:

In the oppositionís half.
Interfering with play (that is, heís part of the attacking move).
Interfering with an opponent (that is, heís preventing the opponent from defending against the attacking move).
Gaining any advantage by being in that position.
A player cannot be offside from a goal kick, throw in or corner.

SOURCE

I thought if the player was level with the last defender, it's not offside.  How it was explained to me is that  "level" does not mean "feet level".

If the attacker's feet and the last defender's feet are level, but the attacker's body, head, or even arm are ahead of the last defender, it is offside.

Looked to me that when the ball was played, Lewis' feet were level with the last defender....but his torso and head were slightly ahead of the last defender.  If that interpretation of the law is correct, then to me, the correct call was made by the referee's assistant.

I have to watch that replay because Fox showed it very briefly and it looked to me as if his body was level with the defender when the ball was played. It looked like he was still onside but I'll like to see it again to be fair and unbiased.
