Just to keep you up on the papers...

The Tippeligaen team-of-the-week blurb says: "[Josh Gatt] Proves what speed does. SIF - defense backed down into its own end when the American thundered forward and scored."

Of course, at this moment, we're all probably wishing Molde could have been much healthier for this game. Then, (sigh), Freddy Adu could have played the #10.

I dont mean to sound like a bitter US fan (though I am at the moment), but doesnt the fact that we still rely on Freddy Adu for any and all creativity in the final third a major issue? The guy has been around the youth level FOREVER and he is still the only guy who can create something in the final third. Where are all these attacking prospects US fans keep hearing about? Gatt could be special though, OGS is the perfect manager for him.

It seems that there are a few "creative" players coming through such as Gil, Guido, Junior FLores(years away), Letget,and Rowe to name a few. They just need to get game time and hopefully they will keep improving.

I should add that it will be hard for those guys to break in to the USMNT with players like Feilhaber and Klejstan not always getting looks and they are getting consistent playing time.

Maybe Bruce is right about Gulati and his management. Doesn't it seem like our most effective players either grow up outside the system or have to overcome it (Jozy doesn't seem to have benefited from the pressure).

I'm just saying, maybe we should have another regime that allows the players to come out of the woodwork instead of saying, "This is the block of wood! Observe for ten years!" So far, the best block produced Donovan and an injured Gooch, and they had plenty of work to do.

I'd just like to note that Gatt is a midfielder here. Good job Norway!
