Your USMNT Line-Up v. England

In basic theory, I can't have too many complaints. Keeping the "top back line" together is fine (though I'd advise a certain right back get his act together in Red, White & Blue if he wants to stay on it).  However, I definitely feel like Red Bulls fans should be rightfully pissed if Dave Sarachan starts their players in the second friendly. Oh, and has Wil Trapp really earned such slavish starting role devotion? Hmm, don't think so. I will be quite happy when we finally bother to appoint the permanent manager (even if the so-called process looks a sham) ...

Seriously, fuck US Soccer and fuck Earnie Stewart for dragging his fucking feet on finding a real national team manager. There's no organization to this team right now and no philosophy that I can see. Yeah, it's great that Sarachan's blooding the kids, but he's no tactician.

I know where you're coming from JBS. It's so frustrating.

I totally agree with JBS. This has gone on for far too long. And the result is maybe Gregg Berthalter? I thought Earnie would be better than this?

Dr.Jon said...

Total agreement.

I agree. Earnie has demonstrated he's very much not the change agent we'd hoped for. Also, it's surprising that we would wait around like lap dogs for a coach who's yet to win anything.

Dr.Jon said...

I am wondering now if the "delay" in the Berhalter announcement is because of the lack of a contract between Mexico and Tata? Or maybe the sudden availability of Steve Cherundolo? Forever the optimist.....

We should’ve went for Tata from day one...

Yeah, ideally i’d like an American to be the head coach but a year??
