What a long overdue decision made by USSF today. Our federation has way too much money/support/sponsorships to have gone this long without a marquee coach.

Yeah, Klinsmann is a quality manager. While we may not see immediate play difference on the pitch (i.e. August 10th friendly vs Mexico probably won't be the turning point) but give him time to work his system, get in players he wants and we should see some results by the Olympics.

It's a good thing he'll have a long string of friendlies before any qualifiers. Even with a new coach I don't think we have the talent to outcompete Mexico's current squad, but hopefully we will show better against the other teams in our region. We've underperformed for too long against the kind of squads that we should be easily beating.

Bout time we got some new blood coaching. International coaches should get 4 years and no more unless they produce unexpected results (more than once).




I was thinking about making a separate thread for this, but I think my target audience is already here:

Barclay's Premier League fantasy has the new site up and running for 2011. I've played the last couple years. They changed a few rules this season, but I think the game is broadly superior to the various MLS formats. If you care to come play, the address is: http://fantasy.premierleague.com/

and the code to join the Homebrewtalk.com league is: 7528-199167

I've done that. Not in a game, mind, but I have done it.

Thankfully, Chicharito is out for next week's match. I'm going out of my mind wanting to see JK's selection, which is supposed to be announced today. I haven't been this interested in a pre-match roster announcement since the World Cup roster selection.
