Dooley was much better than Bret in year one, but he never really improved.
It will be interesting to see. Right now, I'm leaning towards Dooley. Much better recruiter....

El Tri included. I think we've been underrated for a while now. Europe is not the end all be all in football, especially in today's world.
If you're looking for a more utilitarian reason to pull for North America. World Cup performance has a very real impact on the number of teams admitted from...

Agudelo, Boyd, Wondolowski, Eddie Johnson.
As much as I love Boyd and Juan as prospects, I think you have to bring Wondolowski along. His goal scoring record speaks for itself. I feel like he's just an underrated player in general.
Boyd has been on quite a tear as well. Really, you can m...

...or does he go searching for greener pastures?
I'm leaning towards hoping that he stays. He's still young enough to see marked improvement, and Poyet is a hell of a manager. He hasn't been starting, but he's featured and played well each of the last two games....
