    Looks like I'm just going to be cheering for Germany

    Wow. Panama and Honduras win, the U.S. loses. The U.S. will not qualify for the World Cup.

    Fire everyone. I don't care if I ever see another player on this roster besides Pulisic.

    This is something that could be absolutely devastating to the growth of soccer in the US.

    No it won't. Soccer isn't going anywhere. What it does is hurt MLS growth

    I love it that Trinidad & Tobago had nothing to win tonight...except pride in knowing that they were a last place team that kept the USA from qualifying

    Maybe not devastating but certainly a huge setback. The game has grown tremendously just in the eyes of fans because of the US appearances in the World Cup, even when they were eliminated, because of the exciting nature of the event. Not going to have that in 2018.

    Bradley is the least inspiring captain in Sports history.

    When you don't have tournaments you get exciting nights like tonight. I love that it is a table format, with standings deciding who advances. I know the EPL is crazy the last few weeks of the season with teams trying to avoid relegation and others trying to keep teams from winning. You saw that type of energy from T&T tonight.

    Good. Maybe we'll get a leader for this federation that cares about all of American soccer and not just MLS.

    So true. He's not energetic, he's not inspiring, and anymore I'm not sure if he's even good.
