Bob Bradley offers struggling MLS teams a better coaching alternative

Funny how history changes the way we look at things.

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...
