The Healthy Predicament Facing Bruce Arena And Whether to Explore Opportunities in Europe

He’s the greatest coach that Major League Soccer has enjoyed – and maybe the country altogether. Bruce Arena helped turn MLS’s glamour squad into a bona fide champion three times over. Before that, he helped the US Men’s National Team to its best World Cup finish in the modern era (not to forget its most disappointing as well). In American soccer, Arena has basically done...

USMNT Must Avoid A Letdown After Their Promising World Cup

Usually in football when your recent form is two draws and two losses, questions start to be asked of the manager in question. But with the current US National Team, surprisingly that’s not the case. In a sport that is usually so trigger happy, Jurgen Klinsmann has skated while his team has suffered. Now this isn’t the same sort of situation that Mexico faced during the 2013...

MLS 2014 regular season review: Top 10 coaches

MLS’ lack of high-tempo and beautifully crafted football makes it easy to assume that the coaching in the league is mediocre; however, that isn’t the case. The league’s congested schedule, brutal long distance traveling and complex trade policy means that only the most astute coaches can succeed in the relatively young league. Here are the best coaches from the 2014 season...

MLS Coaching Stability And How It Differs From Europe And South America

It’s commonly accepted in modern football that managers will come and go like frequency waves. A run of bad results here, a falling out there, and the man in charge is changed. I say that because Ben Olsen was re-upped by DC United yesterday on a contract that will keep in him the nation’s capital until 2019. And I say that because at this time last year, DC were putting the...

Bruce Arena Punishment Reinforces His Criticisms

It is not a surprise that the MLS league office passed on a hefty fine to Bruce Arena this week for his comments on the strange Sacha Kljestan transfer saga. What is a surprise is how it was handled, and the process by which Arena was told of the fine ironically justifies his comments. As a refresher Arena and the Galaxy cleared roster space and cap room to acquire Sacha Kljestan...
