It's kind of sad when my convictions for this topic tend to be who I don't want rather than who I do.

In fact, it isn't an individual that I don't want but rather the politics. I do not want MLS dictating it wants a lot of player representation in the squad. I will be happy with any coach who chooses his own 23 man squad free of outside pressure to have MLS players on it.

We have an exciting group of 17-23 year olds coming through the professional ranks. I don't want a coach that has one idea and tries to force square blocks through round holes. I want a coach that can blend our differing talents and make us cohesive on defense and fun to watch attacking.

My problem is I can't think of anyone who can do that on the salary we would be offering.

What about Carlos Queiroz? Is he a name the federation will still be interested in? I know he was a name of interests in the past and has worked in MLS and had a grand idea for soccer in this country. He will probably be available after the world cup.

What do you think?


I hadnt thought about him but good suggestion. He had Iran looking solid against two heavyweights.

Is there anything people have against Tab Ramos? I think he'd make a good choice (and he'd play Brooks Lennon!).

Playing Brooks Lennon is good enough reason not to hire him.

Between Gyau, Gall, Amon, Saief, Weah, I don't see a spot for Lennon.
Didn't even mention Tatigue and Akale emerging,

Saw a couple articles that said Matias Almeyda formerly the coach at Chivas, is in consideration to become USMNT coach. Osorio is still their preferred pick, but given how Mexico had looked heading into and during the 1st two games of the World Cup, he may have a chance to manage Colombia, which is his home country, and his dream.

Come on Loew, it would be great to once again follow in Juergen's footsteps and shred his legacy.

Well it is almost safe to say he will be out of a job and he may just want to leave Germany for a while so why not?

USSF hasn't made a hire yet. They extended Sarachan to June which seems to mean that either:
  • They have been in contact with a manager who is currently managing at the WC
  • They are playing a waiting game to see who gets axed following the WC and are going to try and find the best in the field
As I have stated in this thread before, I am all in on Tata. However, if the USSF wanted Tata, they would have gotten Tata by this point... leading me to believe that he is not the next man. Wagner would have signed by now too if that was in the plans. Same with any of the MLS managers (IMO at least). After taking this into consideration, I feel like realistic options are currently involved with the WC in some way or another.

I stated originally that either Tata or Martinez should/could be the next man. Martinez looks like that could happen. After him, taking other names thrown out on the boards, Quiroz, Hiddink, and Low could be available.
  • Hiddink is alright, but I don't think its in the plans because he isn't currently managing a team and we would have got him if we wanted him.
  • Quiroz could be a good manager, and I wouldn't hate it. But I don't know if he would manage us. He could be an option though because he has coached in MLS.
  • Low wouldn't manage us. I don't think he would want to come in after Klinsmann. And he would never have been on our radar to begin with since Germany was a favorite to win the WC.
One name that sticks out to me though, is Bert Van Marwijk. He currently manages Australia. He managed the Netherlands to the WC. He managed Saudi Arabia and qualified them for the WC before resigning. We fired Arena in November, and gave Sarachan the interim job. In January, we renewed his contract to June. Also in January, Van Marwijk signed a contract to manage Australia at the WC. He is Dutch, Ernie is Dutch and Ernie is ultimately going to make the decision, the timeline adds up, and the guy has a good resume.

He may be an odd, yet highly qualified, dark horse for the position. I'm starting to think he could be a legitimate option...

I'm sorry I'm not a fan of Osorio becoming the next USMNT coach. I hope it doesn't happen.

Earnie appears to be in no rush since they just extended Sarachan for the rest of the year. It could be we had our eye on someone at the WC and they said no thanks.

With that timetable, it looks likely we will have an MLS coach.

I wonder if Cherundolo has gotten all his international licenses yet?

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