There is a player - manager dynamic that we, as fans, don't see. It'd be interesting to see. The Brian Strauss report has to have some merit. He is usually a good journalist. I think some of the points are spot on.
JK definitely has an ego. That has been seen many many times. However, that's not a bad thing. IF handled correctly. (I.E. Bilicheck, Saban, Phil Jackson, etc).
I just don't understand his selections. Landon Donovan you can't play in our WCQ or Centennial games you aren't in form. Danny Williams, you haven't played in months. Welcome aboard. Stuart Holden, you've been injured for 2 years. Welcome aboard.
Bocanegra n 'Dolo = most experienced defenders. frick with each and not even call them in camp. I understand that Boca hasn't had any PT (although, he has lately). But, he can still help out in camp n etc. I'd take him off the bench in a heartbeat over inexperienced players when we are in Honduras, Panama, etc.
Just my two cents.
