USA-Mexico Tickets SOLD OUT

Tickets for the highly-anticipated world cup qualifier between the U.S. and Mexico went on sale on to the general public on Wednesday and noon and promptly sold out in 90 minutes. This was to be expected as the US Soccer had done a lot of pre-selling of tickets to Crew supporters or Uncle Sam Fan groups.

If you are still interested in going to the game, then your best bet is still through a ticket agency like StubHub. Tickets prices there have come way down in the last couple of weeks and a lot of tickets are now priced at around $100.

    Everyone is entitled to his opinion, but I think you, David, are too harsh on Vieira. He is still good enough player not only for Arsenal or Spurs, but for Inter too. Of course, he is not as good as he used to be at his prime, but he is a very capable midfielder even now. The problem for him is Cambiasso, Muntari, Javier Zanetti, Thiago Motta, Stankovic are all ahead of him on roster. And considering presense of young guys like Krhin and Obi, who will get some playing time soon enough, there is really not much room for Vieira.

    At the same time, the fact that Mourinho plays him quite often so far also tells me, that Mourinho thinks he can play. If he wouldn’t think so he would use more of 4-3-3 when have to or play Zanetti and even Chivu (when Cambiasso, Motta are/were injured) in midfield with Santon (we all know) capable to play full-back at high level. Instead, while Maicon is out, he preferred to play Chivu and Zanetti in defense, while giving Vieira to play.

    Also sometimes a player need the right atmosphere and/or complete trust of the coach to play better (at any age)… I can find a bunch of examples… Juan Sebastian Veron was not as good last few years in Europe (in England and Inter), but found a fountain of youth in Argentina…
    The great Roberto Baggio came back twice from “getting old” label in his career: in Bologna after AC Milan, and in Brescia after Inter…

      i agree that Viera is good enough for Inter in spots, maybe to start a game here and there, but as you pointed out, he is maybe 6th the sixth best midfielder on the squad. My feeling is that he is making too much noise for someone who is a part-time player if everyone is fit.

    Viera was seen at Chel-Liverpool match yesterday. At 33 yrs old, he is not considerable too old to be a defensive MF. Makelele played this role at Chel until the age of 35 yrs old.

    Out of the 3 competitive matches Viera started, there are 1 win, 1 draw & 1 loss. This will be 4 pts out of a possible 9. This result is definitely not good enough for Inter.
