Under fire Jurgen Klinsmann can breather easier after World Cup qualification draw

How could some of the mounting pressure on Jurgen Klinsmann be relieved without even playing a match? He could have turned a wandering eye to the World Cup qualification draw this morning. In a time when CONCACAF despite all the peripherals is steadily improving, the US somehow came out with as easy of a draw as they’ve ever been handed. In the semifinal round, they will play...

US Soccer should have hired Joachim Löw, not Jurgen Klinsmann

I’m not surprised that the United States lost to Jamaica in the Gold Cup semifinal on Wednesday night. If you’ve been watching the tournament, you probably weren’t surprised either. Jamaica is a solid team. Thanks to a new coach, the best part of two months together this summer thanks to a Copa America invite, and a clearly defined tactical setup, the Reggae Boyz know exactly...

Jurgen Klinsmann Shouldn’t Be Fired After Gold Cup, But He Should Be On the Hot Seat

Look, after seeing the USMNT lose to Jamaica in the Gold Cup Semifinals, I was pissed off. I kind of still am, but now that there has been time since the 2-1 final, I have been able to rationally analyze if Jurgen Klinsmann should or shouldn’t be fired as USMNT manager. Since the World Cup last year, Klinsmann has used the friendlies to experiment with the team and it has resulted...

Klinsmann’s gamble backfires, US falls to Jamaica at Gold Cup

Jurgen Klismann vowed the United States men’s national soccer team would build its way through the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup and peak at the right time. Some Team USA believers are feeling downright betrayed right about now. The U.S. fell to Jamaica 2-1 on Wednesday at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Ga., in the Gold Cup semifinal. On its own, Team USA’s loss represents one of those...

The United States men’s national soccer team now is playing for keeps, and Jozy Altidore is a high-profile casualty.

Klinsmann’s changes needed if USMNT is to win 2015 Gold Cup

There’s been no question what the United States men’s national team goal was for 2015 — win the CONCACAF Gold Cup. After winning Group A, but largely failing to impress changes were needed and likely to come from manager Jurgen Klinsmann. On Tuesday, Klinsmann made the allowed three changes to the 23-man roster. He brought in DeMarcus Beasley, Alan Gordon and Joe Corona to...

Bradley salvages Team USA’s sputtering performace

First the good news: The United States men’s national soccer team’s hopes of defending its CONCACAF Gold Cup title remain on track. Now the bad news: Team USA’s prospects of winning the 2015 Gold Cup look increasingly bleak with each passing game. The United States and Panama played to a 1-1 draw Monday at Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan. The result bolstered Team USA...

It’s Time for Klinsmann to Stop Experimenting with USMNT Back Line

Three points and advance — that was the task at hand for the United States men’s national team on Friday night against CONCACAF minnow Haiti. With a 1-0 win over the Haitians, the USMNT took all three points and claimed the top spot in Group A. Mission Accomplished. But, just because the result was positive doesn’t mean everything was right in the world of the men’s national...

FOXBORO, Mass. — It took Gyasi Zardes just two minutes to make a positive impact in the United States men’s national soccer team’s 1-0 win over Haiti in Friday’s Gold Cup game at Gillette Stadium.
