I liked Klinsmann (more qualified at the time than Henry is now), but he played guys out of "position" and used many MLS players (more than coach Bob before him). I don't see how Henry would be different. But if Berhalter did it- it would then be a problem?

Honestly, we wouldn't know what Henry or Berhalter would do until they're in the seat. I tend to believe someone with a pedigree like Henry's would be better at developing young players due to his time pushing young players at Belgium and at developing a more technical attacking style of play due to his background as a player.

JK let his ego and his emotions pick his teams and style of play and that's what hurt him in the end.
Arena had strong MLS bias.
Bradley was too conservative and his philosophies were stale.
I just want someone with a fresh perspective and no biases.

I have no problems with USSF hiring Moyes. I hope it happens.


I have no problem with Moyes either. He speaks the language. Has shown a respect for American players by giving them a fair shake in England. He has been able to get the most out of teams with shoestring budgets.

IMO whoever the coach is they need to have a Tactical understanding of the Game and the ability to communicate what players roles are. They need to be able to read how a team/game is unfolding and know what changes to make in order to take advantage of what the opponent is giving you, or to take away what the opponent is trying to do.

Their coaching staff (Assistant coaches) can help fill in some of the other aspects: Knowledge of USSF, MLS, Recruiting, etc....

Top Manager options for me: Wagner, Tata, Moyes, Hiddink, Berhalter, Vermes

If Tata, Moyes, or Hiddink were selected than I'd want them to have a Link to MLS/USSF as one of their assistant coaches. This is where I think a Boca, Cherundolo, Marsh, or Porter would be a good option. I don't think Berhalter or Vermes would accept the role of being an Assistant, but wouldn't be opposed to offering it to them.

If one of the MLS guys (Berhalter or Vermes) is selected I'd want them to have an assistant with more experience internationally. This is harder to ID, but Henry or Hiddink could be options if we made it worth their while.

If Wagner was the coach I'd let him pick his staff, but I think an MLS link wouldn't be a bad idea.

I don't know why Wagner's name isn't brought up more, if only for the fact he should be looking for the exit door at Huddersfield. He should have left in the off-season. Getting a club like that up in the Premier League and keeping them up one season is about the extent of what you can do with that job.

ESPN had a nice article on Uruguay and their manager, the old man Tavarez. A section read:

"His work over the last 13 years has been based on the acknowledgement that domestic Uruguayan football could no longer serve as much of a measure of quality. It was up to the FA to ensure the future of the national team, by identifying and developing youngsters good enough to thrive in top class global football -

the chief characteristics identified by him and his staff were speed of movement, speed of thought and speed of technical excellence."

(I doubt these are the same characteristics we are looking for in USA). We need a coach with a vision, but unlike Klinsmann the new visionary must be able to work with the ussf.

This probably isn't news to anyone but I work at the JFK airport and spoke today to David Moyes brother, Kenneth, his father, also named David and Kenneth's son and wife and asked his brother if he thinks David Moyes will get the USA job and he said not likely, he doesn't think he has a good chance of getting the job. So you can pretty much count him out if you haven't already.

I need a coach that has no bias to mls. I need a coach that's not afraid to play young players. I need a coach that can evaluate players based on technical ability and fit for the speed and physicality of the international game. I need a coach that wants to play more attacking technical football. I need a coach that understands what it takes to win internationally and aspires to win trophies. If he checks those boxes, then I want him.

A bit shocked no one is mentioning Arsene Wenger. He said he wants to return to management JAN 1. But didn't give a specific destination.

I still think there is a little cat and mouse game going on with USSF, Berhalter and Martino. It was interesting Josh Wolf was added to the nats staff recently for these games. Maybe a little USSF pressure applied to Martino if he is actually interested in the job. Then from Martino's camp, we get he's a serious candidate for the Mexican nats job...back at you USSF. Everything points to Berhalter, but I still think they really want Tata. I'm fine with both...I like Berhalter a lot.

He's tactically very solid and would understand the collective limitations of American players better...basically technical abilities and how slow we collectively think as a team and react on the field...the last piece of the puzzle, getting everybody on the same page... collective speed of thought and decision making needs to be much higher tempo...that's what kills us. We're getting there, we have a much higher percentage of young guys that get it...need the whole team to get it...then we can play an open game with quality teams....it only takes a few guys thinking slow to break it down...saw a lot of that from the mids last night...molasses...poor awareness and a crap ton of turnovers.

The final stretch of the English league season is upon us, with several Americans on the verge of relegation with their teams.
