I'm going with Pep.


Pep who? Pepperoni? Because that is the only pep coming to the USA any time soon.

"Steven Goff: USSF executives, including Sunil Gulati, planning to take questions Friday about USMNT situation. Bruce Arena status among topics, no doubt"

No idea what's going to happen from there.

That was for the 2026 Home WC. Unfortunately, I posted that in a 2018 thread.

Well ideally Bruce will be fired or resign. IMO we should name an interim coach so things don't go completely stale and wait until the election is over to decide where to go with a new coach.

The names being bandied about by the press are underwhelming.

From what has been mentioned so far Cherundolo is an intriguiging name.

I'll mention someone else who has captained the US and has national team managing experience...Thomas Dooley. He's done well with limited resources with the Philippines.

NO WAY do I want Blanc to be the next USMNT coach. Guy brings bad luck and drama.

Sam Allardyce says he's interested...any takers?


Wikipedia's entry on his managerial style->

Allardyce is a keen proponent of sports science and using technology and innovative techniques in coaching his teams,[194] such as computerised performance analysis and yoga.[195] Martin Hardy of The Independent described him as "one of the pioneers of sports science in English football".[196] Former players and pundits have cited his preparation as his main strength, which allows his teams to have better organisation and defensive stability.[195] Former Bolton player Kevin Davies also highlighted Allardyce's man-management skills as a strength.[195]

Allardyce also has a reputation for using long ball tactics, though has said that this reputation is a perception that is "totally and utterly wrong".[197] Former Newcastle player Lee Clark defended Allardyce from criticism of his tactics and said that Allardyce was right to work hard on set-plays and on the organisation of his team.[198]

Criticism of his perceived long-ball tactics became more intense as he managed West Ham United in the Premier League, including discontent from West Ham's own supporters.[199][200][201] In January 2014, following a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea manager, José Mourinho criticised West Ham's football, likening it to "football from the 19th century".[202] In October 2014, Allardyce claimed his reputation for playing long ball football was "not founded in fact" and had been used as an excuse by opposing managers such as Arsčne Wenger, David O'Leary, Graeme Souness and Rafael Benítez following defeats by sides managed by Allardyce.[6] Allardyce wrote in his autobiography that "when they hit a 50-yard ball it was a cultural pass; when we did it, it was a hopeful hoof"

He'd be better than anyone we've had up to this point, but we need better than Big Sam.

He wouldn't take the interim gig, but I'd take him over Ramos.

I'd love to see him come in a grab a few guys by the lapels and ask them what the fuck they're doing when they tune out and go through the motions...aka T&T game.

Cutthroat Euro style...There would not have been a T&T debacle. He would have cut 6 guys on the spot after the CR and Honduras games. Talk about thinning the herd...

He'd come in and whack a third of the roster for being mentally fragile.

Sorry, I don't get the the fascination with Ramos. There is a lot of info available on the players we have in the youth teams. It isn't like Ramos is the only coach who knows these players....is that the big selling point? I'm not a big fan of his evaluation of talent at all...and I'm crazy about his tactical approach to putting his teams together....even as an interim coach.

I want to see the young guys too, but my prerequisite is whomever is brought in has to play his ass off for the crest...first and foremost.

Identify the players with speed, skills and heart. If we have a young version of that, I'm good.

Agreed. We need to bring in a manager who can help us play a more evolved style of play. Allardyce is not that guy.

He might not be ideal, but you wouldn't take him over Sigi Schmid or Caleb Porter?

No thanks, Tab will keep players like Bradley and Altidore around. Pretty sure he will start them too
