Head Happy Hour Coach
- Aug 27, 2011
Why wouldn’t they call Geoff Cameron back? They never should have moved away from him.
Klinsmann wasn't as pro-Euro as Arena was pro-MLS --- see Miguel Ibarra as exhibit A. Klins, for all his faults pushed players to play in the best leagues for their ability and development, and questioned the cartel every step of the way. He fought the good fight. Bruce OTOH...
True, Klinsmann did lean towards European players, especially those with ties to his native Germany, though he did have some flexibility. His challenge is that he's a big picture guy who does not sweat the details and some of those details turned around and him and the USMNT in the behind. He also wanted in the word's of the risen Emperor Palpatine, 'Absolute Power.' While a shake-up was needed within USSF, that was a bridge too far. Tie that with his ability to also carry grudges to an extreme, and you have what happened.
Arena was a failure from the start of this second tour...

nothing surprising here, unfortunately. Working with them through AO has always been a disaster. complete overhaul is needed, yet unlikely.

Some people will be happy, no Bradley or Altidore. But probably just because TFC has a couple of games during that time.Preliminary roster for the upcoming friendlies with Mexico (at MetLife in Jersey) and Uruguay (at a baseball stadium in St. Louis in celebration of MLS owners collecting another expansion fee).

The stick Bradley gets isn’t undeserved, but the fact is he still picks out a pass better than any player we currently have. I mean at the very least he is light years ahead of Trapp.Just watched the last 15 min of first half. Sounds like the US played better in first quarter, but from what I’ve seen they shouldn’t come out for the second half. I haven’t seen two consecutive completed accurate passes. Maybe we need Bradley after all. He’d string together a couple 5 yard back passes.
