Default US Men's National Team

Interesting article on the behind the scenes relationship with Klinsmann and why they ultimately fired him

Not sure who looks worse Gulati or Klinsmann

For all of calling for Gulati to be fired too, myself included... think again

The fact that JK felt the need to shop for dual nationals outside the US is a clear indication DA isn't working. He also told players with pro potential to go abroad to develop, not stay here. He's a lousy coach but he was right about that. and if his job was to create the best team possible I don't blame him for trying any and all options for players. That's why US colleges are shopping overseas as well. If they could find the same talent here they wouldn't need to.

So fix the damn system here (or at least make an effort)rather than farm out development to other countries. Classic case of giving a man a fish rather than teaching him to fish. We need an inspirational leader with some marketing wisdom to get through to young players and coaches what is necessary to build a proper foundation to build on in this country.

Did Klinnsman ever show up at an academy practice? A youth game of any kind? Did he ever talk or attempt to teach or inspire the game to anyone rather than simply say, "Go abroad and learn"?

We need a 'doer' that finds answers to the true problems rather than excuse makers. Will Bruce Arena be that man? We will find out. At least the country as a whole gets such a man as President tomorrow.

Problem is you need someone who is not only a good coach, but a visionary who can design and execute a system that would work here (as opposed to what works elsewhere). I'm of the mind that the NT coach should not be the same person as the one running the overall program. The likelihood of finding a person who can do both well is almost none

If you want this board to try and make it, keep the political BS off. Fixed it for you.

Dual nationals are quite common in soccer. Majority of national teams deploy dual nationals. That's not a sign that DAP isn't working. DAP isn't working for reasons other than dual nationals
