Thomas Rongen is head scout of the USMNT. Is it just me or does this guy have the most bizarre aura (and belief system, claiming Messi has a mediocre soccer IQ for one). We need a big restaffing eventually.

Feels like we took a little trip back in a time machine.

Bruce must have brought him back into the fold through the side door in the middle of the night...not a lot of press on it.

Supposedly he met with Gonzalez' family three times over the last year. God only knows how stilted and bizarre that must have been.

I'm going on record right now...stating these bizarre encounters with Rongen tragically sealed the fate for the USA....Uh, no thanks clown.

Hercules Gomez twitter: "Spoke to Tab Ramos, Thomas Rongen and Jonathan Gonzalez's father, and despite claims of multiple in-home visits, I can confirm no #USSF official EVER visited the Gonzalez household. All the details on today's #MaxAndHerc. #USMNT #ElTriEng @mbretosESPN @SebiSalazarFUT"

If Rongen truly did lie about having gone to Gonzalez's home 3 times, that might be the #1 all time low scum move from a US Soccer staff member. Should be arrested (jk......maybe not). He is SUCH A goober Rongen (stupid neck, stupid wardrobe, stupid hair, stupid face, and on and on)!

Why is Rongen even involved in the US system anymore? The guy is a tool.

The same reason why toolbag Ritchie Williams is still on the USMNT coaching staff.

Can we get a mod to add a big W to the thread title.


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