It's still early, but it's time to get down to brass tacks: who should be our manager after the the WC? Regardless of how well/poorly we do, I think we should get a new manager. As we all know too well, keeping a manager past 4 years can lead to stagnation (Arena, Bradley). Domenech stayed 6 years with France and did horribly at the end. Low has coached Germany for 7 years and still hasn't won squat. Sven and Fabio both stayed 5 years coaching England and left during low periods. The only real exception I know of is Del Bosque - and he's just past the 5 year mark (we'll see how he does next summer). So who's our next manager? There are two choices that stand above the rest: Jason Kreis and Dominic Kinnear. These two are clearly the best managers in MLS over the last few years (not counting Arena), and both would make outstanding national team managers. Kinnear has more international experience, having played in a World Cup, plus a few more years of coaching under his belt. Kreis plays a more latin "possession" game, and therefore might do better against Concacaf competition. Either way, I don't think we can go wrong with either manager. Anybody else would be a roll of a dice I wouldn't want to see (Peter Vermes, Sigi Schmid).
