We look sloppy and flat against Costa Rica.  Bryan Ruiz looks class against us.  Creating chances and putting in the cross for the second goal.  Our back four look like FFC back four of the last two years. 

Time for a coaching change.

A new coach will shake things up. How many coaches last two WC cycles with the same country?
The current US team is ingoing a radicle change. Aside from Altidore &  Bradley, who played a major part last time and will do so again in Russia? Klinsman doesn't get it.

I never thought I would say this when Klinsy was appointed, but I think Bradley and Arena had better knowledge on attacking, defending, and adapting a style to the players strengths and weaknesses.

We'll make Russia. Well as long as we can win in Panama.
Won't we?  :012:

Never trust a forward to be your manager.  Rarely works out.   For all of the extra money being paid to Klinsman over that of his predecessors, his results have  been a complete failure.  Arena said his peace about Gulati in the past, so, though Bruce wants the job, he'll never get it while Gulati runs things.  Gulati has to go.  Has to go.  Klinsman has to go.  Nagbe should be playing, but he refuses, because he knows he won't get enough playing time to make it worth his time.   Yedlin, what happened to him.   Gulati and Klinsman out.    Out out out out out.  Now.  USMNT team quit on him.  Lost the locker room.  Out outout outout.  Now.

I am not a fan of how Klinsman is playing players out of position or trying these funky formations that don't seem to be working.  Then we find ourselves switching with in minutes of the opening half.  Makes us look unorganized.

Nothing is changing until we don't qualify, IMO.

Probably true but still sad.

Officially a much better performance tonight.

Christian Pulisic was a beauty to watch. He reminded me of Danny Murphy, threading passes to Dempsey. Dempsey, well, he was the Deuce. "He scores with his right, he scores ... " etc. Overall, it was a fine performance. Pulisic just might be the missing link that the US has needed since Claudio Reyna. Now, was it a fluke? Ask me after Panama.

Pulisic is a better player at his age than Donovan was.  What will US Soccer do if the evidence of Russia's meddling in our last election and political campaigns is overwhelmingly bad?  Do we still go?   I'm old enough to remember how President Carter kept us out of the Olympics the year they were hosted in Russia.  Certain acts have consequences...

Would be a shame and a heart break if the US were to boycott the WC. 

Sadly did not get to see the game the other night due to unforeseen events.  Saw a bit of the highlights.  Dempsey's goal was a beauty.
