    Yawn. What an boring performance. Zero interesting options going for US currently outside of Pulisic.

    He doesn't play for Nantes. He's not good.

    He was playing really well earlier this season but has been crap as of late.

    Nice U20 goal from another guy who will spend 6 years in MLS and end up moving to Dusseldorf at 28 while getting 40 senior caps

    We should just give up on soccer at this point and focus on hockey, just to fuck with those smug Canadians.

    Berhalter is probably going to be fine, but why the fuck did we wait over a year to get him in? Should have been hired this past summer, at the latest.

    This was always going to be the hire. They were never to follow up JK with another sexy, foreign corch.

    GB has a great resume - played and coached in MLS and abroad, former NT guy, well liked. Made the playoffs four of the past five years with a small budget and shitty circumstances in Columbus.

    I agree that this could’ve happened after last MLS season though

    We waited 13 months for Gregg Berhalter...

    I wish we had competent people running US Soccer.

    Berhalter is the best American corch there is right now. He’s getting way too much shit, I like the hire (would’ve preferred it happened a year ago though)

    Looks like Pulisic will move this winter, will definitely destroy any record for an American. As a fan, I’m hoping to he goes to Liverpool, but I just don’t see minutes for him there behind Salah and Mane (and Shaqiri).

    I've been hearing/reading Chelsea and Liverpool are the ones that want him. Not sure I'd be a fan of him moving to either one, honestly. He'd be 4th choice at Liverpool. He probably has an easier path to playing time at Chelsea, but Sarri tends to stick to an 11, and I'm not sure he'd get in it.

    I don't mind Berhalter at all being named manager. I would've liked it a long, long time ago though. I don't understand what leverage he had to make US Soccer wait all of this time. Or why US Soccer (again) lied and said this was some sort of global search with 22 candidates when it wasn't.

    He's a fine coach although pretty bad in Sweden (that was a while ago). He has lots of experience as a player at top levels.

    Then again now I look at his total results as Crew HC... +6 goal difference over 193 matches :thumbsup:

    I think Marsch is a better coach though. I would've preferred him if it had to be an American.

    How about some STOKE IN THIS BITCH @pavel

    He would definitely get minutes at stoke. He'd get minutes at Arsenal too! It's only a matter of time before all their attacking players are simultaneously hurt...again.

    I would love to see him at like Sevilla or Napoli. He really needs to play more. I'm not sure he's good enough yet to break into the first team at a top tier club. He should go to a place where he can get 30+ starts and can play in a pretty good team.
