I'm sure there are others here who follow the USWNT; what is up with Sermanni being fired?

US wins 2-0 over China and it easily could have been a larger margin, and boom, head coach is fired.

Off field scandal of some sort?

From what I heard the players werent happy with them. I saw part of the game today on live stream but I heard he benched like the 3 of the starters to try out new players (solo, abby, and one other).

Also losing the algarve cup like he did probably cost him his job. He was calling up too many new players that was messing with the team chemistry. Honestly I dont think a male coach is good for the USWNT.

The USWNT hasnt been dominating teams under Sermanni (minus that russia ass whooping)

He was trying to implement a tactical change to a more possession based game. It would be a shame if it was a mutiny/coup from players that are close to retirement. He was bringing in a lot young players and I'm sure that ruffled a lot of old feathers. The first two games at Algarve were solid games with the new formation, then they let in 5 against Denmark which was massive red flag. With the talent and depth we have, you'd have to really go out of your way to give up 5..definitely some vets were going through the motions sending a message. I just read an article on ussoccer that highlighted Sermanni's approach going forward. The announcement of his dismissal was very tersely he did something out of line that called for immediate action...Maybe Bshredder has some inside shocker.
