OFFSIDE REMARKS
The likelihood and chances of U.S. deploying its "perfect 11" in WCQ?: probably slim and none

With all the football and soccer websites, blogs and analysts out there, I wonder if anyone has done some sort of survey of when National Teams have been able to deploy their "so-called" full starting 11 for a World Cup qualifier, World Cup match or a continental championship.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
Tico fans protest U.S. WCQ win when they should picket about Friday's game being at new stadium, not Saprissa

Man, talk about misdirected anger and wasted energy. Tico soccer fans, still upset over the famous snow game in Commerce City, Colo.

Petke had no choice but to bench Henry; how the team responds is another matter

It remains be seen what the fallout of Mike Petke's flare-up and subsequent benching of Thierry Henry will mean to the Red Bulls. But there was no question that Petke had to do it, to show that team that no player, even Thierry Henry is above facing discipline.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
Petke tells it like it is: 'It was an embarrassing day for the Red Bulls'

He didn't hide, he didn't bow his head in shame or disgust, but you knew the head coach of the Red Bulls was disgusted. Mike Petke looked squarely at the MSG camera and said what was in his heart and what should have been said by many players after a sorry performance at the StubHub Center on Sunday.

The real challenge begins for the Cosmos

Many of us had an inkling that the Cosmos' home opener -- aka the team's first competitive match in nearly three decades -- would be a sellout at Hofstra University.

Recalling a memorable game on the day The King died

It was quite easy for me to remember the 36th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley -- on Aug. 16, 1977.

OFFSIDE REMARKS
Luyindula must work overtime to avoid the Red Bulls/MetroStars No Foreign Body Team

It is a club and dubious distinction that any Red Bulls' foreign player would wanted to avoid. It is the club of great reputations and sometimes great expectations and seemingly always decreased realizations.

GOLD CUP PICKS
U.S., Panama have the edge to reach the final

The magic numbers of Wednesday's CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinal doubleheader are two and one. That's what the final score is going to be of both games, which could very well go into extratime and even be decided by the dreaded penalty kicks.
