    True. And double true on the 2nd goal. A great pass by Weah (who looks the real deal) and a good finish by Wood. There IS new talent coming up through the ranks. Unfortunately we have a joke of a GM and I can't at all, at this point, trust his judgment when he FINALLY hires a coach.

    my greatest fear is that he will hire a yes man or someone from the good ole days.

    At this point, I wouldn't put anything past Ernie Stewart. Does he have a call in to Bob Bradley?

    I would stop watching. That's how disgusted I would be. That's how regressive a hire it would be.

    I am with you there. I hate bringing back the same guy, much less one that was fired. I think we saw enough of that already with Bruce Arena. With so many players playing in Germany I would not mind seeing another German coach, one that is more stable than JK. Obviously would prefer an American manager, but I would stay away from someone who has a history with the national team. Just do not care to see regression.

    There's a guy out there who may be on the outs with his current national team, and would be awesome here, not that it would ever happen:

    With this thread bumped, I had to go look to see why in the eff our idiotic "GM" STILL hasn't hired a coach. I looked it up and, wow, we'll have one BY THE END OF THE YEAR!!! He said he doesn't want to be effing HASTY!!!

    Folks, Ernie Stewart is, indeed, the human snail reborn.

    I just viewed the friendly vs. England. far too lazy in their defending all over the pitch. a lot of lacklustre efforts to attack the ball and plenty of jogging. second half was far better. a lot of ominous possession running into the final 3rd just nothing to show in the end. Pulisic played very well and was one of the standouts from either side, but he really should have opened the scoring. I really enjoy to see how calm he is on the ball. it's a sight for sore eyes. overall I thought they looked better than they did against France in their attack, but not much team defending and to be fair to England the States were already down once they started to shine. Brooks at times looked very sharp. his passing out of the back is a lot better than I remember. GUZAN..WTF is he doing getting a look? he literally cannot kick the ball to a teammate.
