    ussf will never fire him....

    he'll do the honorable thing, and resign....probably after the olympics...

    Brandi, please no! Has she ever coached a team at any level. Don't tellme it is because she has played at the national level, so has Maradonna.

    lots of male stars turn out to do very well managing....

    the game isn't a mystery...and i'd think chastain knows more about the game than the vast majority of coaches....

    she's the freaking leader, something ryan clearly didn't grasp...

    give her a technical assistant if yoy think she's tactically challenged...

    of course, her husband could help out, although he's turned the job down previously

    Generally, coaches who witness a disastrous performance of their team resign immediately after the WC. Since Ryan is such a Forrest Dumb, I doubt he'll take responsibility for his team's poor showing and for his own poor coaching at the WC.

    in general, it was one BAD choice, but was it bad...

    i do wonder if any of the assistants would have asked him, do you really wanna do this.....

    if you had her in mind, PLAY her MORE ....

    but usa wins the bronze, and get another shot next year...

    wonder who the keepers will be...

    It boils down to the term, "gamefit", they said it about Michael Owen before England's last international. It is a very elementary term.

    Was it in the 1998 World Cup that the Saudi coach was fired after 2 games?

    anyone else think dicicco looks like a freaking genius at this point? the guy seemed to be coaching better from the booth than many of the coaches, not just ryan. that boston team will be awesome in 2009.

    You mean he still has a job? And the person up-thread that said it was just ONE bad decision obviously hasn't been getting up early and watching the matches with the rest of us. ;>)

    I agree with that! Think we can get him for a temporary coach for the Olympics?

    If Osborne heads the first goal out, if scurry makes the save on the second shot, if Boxx doesn't get thrown out, if Tina played D up to her billing, we would not be talking about firing Ryan right now. He would look like a genious. It has all to do with bad playing and nothing to do with his coaching.
    Maybe USSF will give him another chance and let him coach until the Olympcs.
    Otherwise, Chris Petrucelli, Randy Waldrum or ask Dorrance to take over for a year.
    But please, NO BRANDI, NO JULIE and definately not that pompous ass Dicicco. Let's finally move on from the 99ers.

    Petrucelli? Haven't his teams woefully underperformed for the talent level there? Or has he stepped things up in the last 2 yrs or so?

    There is plenty of time to get a new coach for the olympics. Same players basically but a new coach who uses them correctly and substitutes logically. There should never be guaranteed employment after a major tournament you lose with the top ranked talent.

    If he were a better coach, then maybe some of those things would actually have happened. If one player screws up, blame the player. If an entire team of elite players looks like crap, blame the coach.

    The audio of Coach Doofus' press conference from Friday. A lot of the questions were about Hope Solo or the team versus asking serious questions about his shocking tactical and personnel decisions. Listening to the interview, I don't think he has the slightest clue how badly he betrayed the players on the team.

    I have always thought he was the genius behind the 96 and 99 run. Read Jere Longman's Girls of Summer if you are in doubt. He is very holistic in his approach and he got results. His black eye came from being commissioner of the unsustainable WUSA.

    "and if my grandmother had wheels, she'd be a wagon."

    the thing with the bad playing is, it happened all tourney. it wasn't so much that the players played poorly individually (though there was a little bit of that), but more they played poorly as a team, as if they had just met each other or something. hardly the well oiled machine we've come to expect (and saw in other teams.), which comes from preparation, which is the coach's responsibility.

    you sound as if you might be one of those people who think the coach is largely irrelevant in soccer. as if talented players get talent 100% by themselves, can figure out a team style and strategy by themselves, can develop team chemistry by themselves, and know when and who to sub themselves out and in. maybe on rec teams. not in pro clubs and international soccer.

    you may think dicicco is a pompous ass. and maybe he is, i have no idea. but his observations watching games on studio monitors proved accurate, and even pompous asses can be effective coaches who get results. just ask chelsea.

    If Sunil had any balls, he would've fired Ryan today.

    I agree or at least ban him from the game in the same manner they did hope.

    This idiot Ryan needs to fired ASAP and Hope needs to be the starting goalie again!
