Beckenbauer criticizes Bayern Munich; praises USA's Klinsmann

NEW YORK -- Bayern Munich honorary president Franz Beckenbauer is sharply critical of the team's performance in this week's 3-1 Champions League loss to Porto. During a news conference Friday at the club's U.S. office, the 69-year-old former star player and coach faulted players for Wednesday's effort in Portugal. ''They are far away, far, far, far away to win the Champions League...

Klinsmann’s ‘tinkering’ finally delivers benefits to silence critics; By Simon Evans

It is far too soon to be declaring Jordan Morris the future of the United States national team attack, but his goal and performance against Mexico on Wednesday showed once again that coach Jurgen Klinsmann has an eye for talent and that his months of experimentation may not have been in vain. Klinsmann has spent the post-World Cup era experimenting (or for his critics ‘tinkering’...

USMNT finally finishes a game and beats Mexico 2-0 once again

It wasn’t a dream, the US Men’s National team defeated Mexico by the all too familiar “dos a cero” score last night in the Alamodome. The 2-0 win from the USMNT put a temporary band aid over issues involving the pitch, Jurgen Klinsmann’s fitness plan and the inability for the USMNT to close out a game. Klinsmann is still undefeated against Mexico winning three times, including...

The 4 questions Jurgen Klinsmann needs to answer about USA team; By Steve Davis

SAN ANTONIO, TX — For all of Jurgen Klinsmann’s unpredictable ways, those player selection standards that tend to weave all over the road, his quirky tactical choices, etc., we do know about one thing for certain about the U.S. head coach: He badly wants to win the upcoming Gold Cup. The dangling carrot is the Confederations Cup spot in 2017. And to do that, Klinsmann needs...

USWNT announce full roster for the 2015 Women’s World Cup

Shock, horror…how could Jill Ellis do that to….oh wait, this isn’t last summer and Jill Ellis isn’t Jurgen Klinsmann. On Tuesday afternoon Ellis unveiled the 23-woman roster for the 2015 Women’s World Cup, and unlike her male counterpart, there were very few surprises in the announcement at all. Abby Wambach? Check. Megan Rapinoe? Check. Hope Solo’s crazy, but uber-talented...

In defense of Jurgen Klinsmann

My one desperate plea to any United States men’s national team supporter who take friendlies to heart: Please don’t. As a follow-up: Really, just don’t. You need to give it a rest. In the wake of another “disappointing” USMNT friendly result—the most recent coming last Tuesday—analysis on the matter has been scorching. Even if it’s been the same old drivel we...

Jurgen Klinsmann should be sacked if USMNT fail to win Gold Cup

When Bob Bradley got sacked as US manager after the 2011 Gold Cup, it was the right move. The US needed a new voice. Fresh ideas. Different energy. Bradley did a good job, but it was time for both parties to move on. A 4-2 loss to Mexico in the tournament finale at the Rose Bowl was the final straw. Never mind that the US went down to what was the best Mexico team of the century...
