Like most of you this weekend, here at Four Five Two headquarters we had some spare time on our hands. Rather than spend that time with loved ones, we consumed copious amounts of alcohol while watching one of the most enjoyable USMNT matches in the past few years. Tonight’s match against Brazil is likely to provide a much sterner test before a final friendly against the Canadian Baconers. If you are new to the USMNT game, fans of the squad tend to get a little shall we say bat-shit crazy and delusional. Don’t believe me? See Davies, Charlie, the quest for a great American striker, or the never ending search for a left back that can run faster than Captain America. Because of this, Four Five Two is spelling out our expectations for the upcoming qualifying cycle in order of importance. Note these expectations do not include the World Cup itself. If we qualify we will do another one of these bad boys, until then bitch at us in the comments.
