  1. Of course its possible, and it’s an achievable goal. A good job in the group and 2 favorable draws and they are there. All it takes is one lucky win and a draw to make it through.

  2. I don’t know. I really respect the Japanese for their style of play. They are so technical and great with the ball. Really enjoyable to watch them get forward. Not sure what they are missing to make it to the next level. Maybe better athletes? All I know is that if the US played with the technical ability that Japan does, it would bring a tear to my eye.

  3. Have you ever seen that J-League show on FSC? There is zero defense played in that league. The defense, at least, is at a far lower level than MLS.

  4. While I think Japan has about the same chance of finishing in the top four at the World Cup as we do I still have memories of Gamba Osaka, who as I recall weren’t in season, absolutely dismantling both the Galaxy and the Dynamo in that pre-season friendly tournament in Hawaii last year.
