The Bob Squad

First, check out the banners hung by the Stabæk ultras this past weekend to celebrate clinching Tippeligaen survival. Then, you too can learn how to make your own intimidating Bob Bradley t-shirt, as instructed by a creative Blue Ones fan. Then, go check out this long form article about the coach, written by NSC pal Joe Prince-Wright.

I read that Prince-Wright article last week. It's terrific. Bob is a much better coach than US fans give him credit for.

Can't agree more.

Bob is definitely a quality coach, but he's an even better person.

Unfortunately, we tend to eat our own and I think that's a big part of what happened with Bob. However, it wouldn't stun me to see him get a second stint with the U.S. MNT at some point. If a qualifying campaign ever starts to head south -- ala El Tri last cycle -- I could see Bob coming to the rescue and pulling together a side that gets the required results.

J.D., Bob would certainly be capable of coming to the rescue, but it would require a ritual suicide by Sunil Gulati first.

@Tony M: Definitely. But Bob has quite a few coaching years left in him, and Sunil will not be around forever.
