At times??


We played good football at times under bradley too. Especially near the end, when he made a choice to play more attractive soccer.

Go watch our 2-0 win over Jamaica in the gold cup and then watch our 1-0 win over Jamaica in WCQ.

frick, watch our losses to Panama and Mexico. You'll see how many more chances we created.

I still appreciate Bob. His sperm created our playmaker.

I liked Bob, still do...but this was a total overreaction.

Jurgen's squad had to get a result and they got a decisive win. On to the hex.

It was decisive, but shaky. The biggest takeaway is that Boca needs to be replaced asap, and that we need Landon Donovan and Fab Johnson.

Danny Williams showed some weakness too, but I prefer him over the options that are currently available.

I appreciate Bob creating his son and him getting us to where we are. Thanks Bob; you did good.

Give Jurgen some time.. We arent doing any worse and its ot even half a world cup cycle. If we flame out or have similar results in a year, we can start looking for other options

but I don't see how anyone can question the ambition to get to another level.

that's kind of the main point

bob was good at saying "we're mediocre, but we can do this to try and luck out wins against great teams"

there's merit to that, and it helped us dominate our group, other than mexico

but we were at our peak. we were never going to take another step

we're trying to improve, and sometimes trying to play pretty without the pieces or comfort is going to lead to a team playing uglier than playing ugly. frick look at chelsea last yaer under AvB

Which led to AvB getting shitcanned mid season. Somebody who had one shred of tactical ability came in, and Chelsea immediately started performing.

Not in the context I used it. Our win was decisive. Our play was shaky.
