Geoff Cameron: What Must Change in U.S. Soccer (Player's Tribune)
LINK


quote:

I had my differences with Jürgen over the years, but the one thing you cannot deny is that Jürgen and his staff brought a sense of true professional competitiveness and ambition to the national team.


quote:

It’s this simple: That Trinidad & Tobago team was full of athletes, and we were playing away on an atrocious pitch, and we only needed one point to qualify for the World Cup. So what formation did we use? 4-1-3-2. One defensive midfielder. One defensive midfielder, on a terrible pitch, against a team that wants to capitalize on bad bounces and mistakes. When we only needed one point.

Seriously? There's already a thread for this.

Seriously, I didn't see.

I deeply apologize to those who may be offended by a repetitive post about soccer on the soccer board.

Feel better?

That thread is actually a different article that just cites some things Cameron wrote. This one is an article written by Cameron and it’s a fantastic read

This article is also posted in the other thread, and essentially deals with the same things.

I agree with Geoff on all accounts, the one thing Jurgen was good at was making sure our young guys went overseas.

Klins should have stayed in some type of director of football like role, which was the original plan after he was done being the manager.

Tactically he was all over the place, but everything else about his philosophy was spot on.

I don’t know what your stance was on Jürgen leading up to his dismissal or the aftermath of his firing, so forgive me if your sentiment here is consistent with what you were saying at the time. But the idea of him moving to a director type role immediately after that shite storm was not an option at the time. Not saying it would be a terrible idea, but I can say pretty confidently that literally no one wanted him sticking around under any circumstance. Also, there’s no way he would have agreed to that anyway, regardless of any potential position offered to him. No way a guy like Jürgen would be willing to stay on just to watch another dude guide his team to what was still thought of at the time an almost certain World Cup berth. But like I said, if this was your stance when it was all happening, fair enough.

He already had the position.

Seems like Geoff Cameron wouldn't have minded.

I’m aware of that, but his dismissal as manager under the circumstances also obviously meant forfeiture of any position he held at the time within US Soccer.

My life in 2018:

Wishing Les was still with LSU and Jurgy was still in charge. I never thought I'd say that.

No thanx, had the events that followed not happen, we would be stuck with him for another 8 more years.

Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom, to get back up.
