Naw, after Bob, I don't think a Prem Team will pull the trigger on an american manger for a very very very long time!

I disagree. I think you will see Wagner in Premier League or Bundesliga to start next season.

This is great news! A manager going straight from the MLS to a top division in Europe? This is history in the making! Coach Bob's success at Staebek and Le Havre made this happen. He paved the way for other MLS coaches to go directly to mid-tier European leagues. Hopefully Marsch doesn't mess this up. I hated him as a player and I don't like him as a manager, either. And I think he's overrated, too.

Obviously he doesn't count. We're talking about people who came out of American soccer culture. Coach Bob may have scared Prem teams away but we don't have anyone near that level yet anyway. American managers are going to be looking at starting at mid-tier European leagues anyway.

Wow, quite a move. Good for him stepping up. I always liked playing against him in adult leagues. His teams always gave us a tactical beat down. We'd have the better individual players, but they beat us every time; usually kicked our ass. He couldn't play for shit but that's OK.

Purely speculating but it seems quite plausible that we could see Terrance Boyd join him Salzburg if the Huddersfield rumors fail to materialize.

NJRB have confirmed that Marsch will be staying with the club.

The MLS needs to realize that it holds onto its players and managers at its own peril. For the US to advance as a football culture, the more managers and players we send abroad, the better.

That's the USSFA or USSF...

MLS is like the Premier League, they don't care, and probably shouldn't care.

Bundesliga cares, because I guess they submitted to the fact that they wouldn't be able to compete with the PL and even in certain respects to LA Liga with regards to finances.

In contrast however, I would argue that the bundesliga is a more mature league with better all around players because of it.

Couldnt agree more. Fortune 500 companies know this and good companies do this all the time. Its in the companies best interest to let its people move on to other companies if its a move up (as long as its perceived as a move up thats all that matters). People moving on to other companies (in this case countries) is a good thing. Other countries will see this and give players/managers a look. Outgoing guys remember who was improving/being overlooked/had potential so it helps everyone. It also promotes other people left behind to push to get into the position as they see the exposure that it will give them (ie if MLS coaches go to potential UCL team then more good coaches from other countries will be more inclined to coach MLS as they will believe they can get back to a big spot across the pond).

Its very sad that MLS continues this mindset of dont let go. Thats the sign of bad leadership. Hopefully that changes once/if Gulati moves on.


The young soccer careers of Rubio Rubin and Brady Scott are headed in completely opposite directions.
