Is Klinsmann right about his first choice defenders, or is he feeding us nonsense? By Steve Davis

Maybe Jurgen Klinsmann is right about John Brooks, Timothy Chandler and Ventura Alvarado, all of whom have labored lately in locking down consistent, starting spots at their clubs in Germany and Mexico. Maybe they got entangled in unfortunate circumstances as they merged back into club soccer a few weeks ago, fresh off United States men’s national team performances that could...

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 bemoans USA's bad luck in Gold Cup defeat to Jamaica

United States men's national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann said luck was not on his team's side after its bid for back-to-back CONCACAF Gold Cup titles came to an end Wednesday. Jamaica emerged as a shock 2-1 winner in the semifinal in Atlanta, albeit in controversial circumstances. The defending champions were made to pay for a horror five minutes, as Darren Mattocks opened the scoring...

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...

Jozy Altidore dropped from U.S. Gold Cup squad mid-tourney

The United States men’s national soccer team now is playing for keeps, and Jozy Altidore is a high-profile casualty. U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann dropped Altidore from Team USA’s squad for the knockout phase of the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup on Tuesday, U.S. Soccer announced on its website. Klinsmann also axed Greg Garza and Alfredo Morales but replced the trio with DaMarcus...

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...

Jurgen Klinsmann: Gyasi Zardes ‘Has A Lot Of Talent, A Lot Of Potential’

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. Zardes came on for veteran forward Jozy Altidore at halftime and set up Clint Dempsey’s goal with a beautiful centering pass in the 47th minute. Zardes is only 22 years...

USMNT impresses in first ever win against Netherlands

The United States men’s soccer team has made great strides under manager Jurgen Klinsmann and Friday’s 4-3 win over the Netherlands in Amsterdam was a shining example. The U.S. had been outscored 7-1 in its four previous games against Holland, and it appeared that the Dutch would cruise to another win after dominating possession early on and taking a 1-0 lead with a goal from...

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...
