    This is indefensible. Bring back Arena, Klinsmann, Bob, anyone. Complete disgrace.

    Gregg has to be fired. This is sooooooooooo bad. The program is in shambles.

    I’ve tried to give him the benefit of the doubt but holy ********.

    I think he’s earned a good firing. Performances have been sub-standard. We have a right to expect more.

    And, it seems, USSF enjoys its "droite du seigneur" with us.

    Honestly, in a universe where US Soccer would fire Berhalter, you'd also need to axe Stewart, the architect of this setup.

    The first long decade of the millennium was The Good. Then we entered into 6 years of The Bad. Now we are steaming headlong into The Ugly.

    Excruciatingly bad. If he had any sense of honor, he'd resign.

    GB never should have been hired in the 1st place... the fact that the vast majority of fans have been saying this since the beginning just shows how dysfunctional the organization is. That being said... even with a piss-poor coach there is no excuse to get shutout against Canada. A ton of this has to be put on the players as well... What a joke. To think that I am officially a fan of: the USMNT, Padres and Chargers. Man... I am a total glutton for punishment.

    I'm in, and if you know me at all from my time here since like the 1998 WC, you'll know that I am NOT a knee jerk fan.

    Gregg has got to go

    What positive has he achieved really? Hiring Gregg was a mistake, taking so long to hire Gregg was a mistake, players are actually less happy with him trying to implement whatever it is, duals are not lining up to play for the US. I mean youth teams maybe a positive, but was it always going to be?

    Well then, Earnie's boss will have to fire him too.

    Who is Earnie's boss again?

    No way in hell would he leave his current job for this one.

    It's time to break the emergency glass and beg Bob Bradley to take over

    As I asked in the post-match thread but should have asked here: do the Directors of the USSF really think Gregg Berhalter was a good choice? Or does Jay Berhalter have pictures of them in bed with a sheep?

    It has to be one of those two.

    I like Bravo's idea of Ramos... he had the U20 team screaming... but Reyna would be cool w/ his son on the way and his history with the team... although I know nothing about his coaching history. Unfortunately, they are going to stick w/ GB until we are on the verge of elimination for WC2022. I have literally lost all hope w/ GB at the helm. I have also lost a ton of respect for our so-called stars that couldn't even put one in the back of the net against a side we had not lost to since the mid-80s. Just bad all around.

    Total fumigation and root-and-branch reform is the only way forward for USSF.

    The problem is that this kind of loss will lose the locker room, and that's really what forces coaching changes.

    It happened to Bob, it happened to Klinsmann, and my guess is you'll see it with the current crop as well.

    Pulisic has to be the most snake bit player we've ever had. He went from Klinsmann, to a lost Arena, to Gregg Berhalter.

    I'm convinced the biggest mistake we ever made was firing Bob Bradley after the 2011 World Cup and hiring Jurgen Klinsmann. Both sides of that were mistakes.

    Greg needs to be FIRED!! Lost to Jamaica at home and to Venezuela at home 3-0 pre Gold Cup. Lost to Mexico in Gold Cup final. 3-0 lost to Mexico at home and now losing to Canada for the first time in 34 years.

    How much more do we need to sink for our federation to realize this guy is in over his head and must be REMOVED!

    Totally agree with this. Bob's teams played boring but he put players in positions they were comfortable in, they played with heart, and they won. Sometimes they won against teams they had no business beating.

    He got fired after losing a game against a much better Mexican team, and still had the team up enough to go up early against them.

    Bob's only fault was that our Eurosnob fanbase wanted a Eurosnob coach.

    Why, in his right mind, would Marsch be interested in the USMNT job right now? If he continues progressing as a coach in Europe he'll be a candidate at some point in the future, just not now.

    I've tried to be nice, I've tried to give him time.

    Not only does his system not suit our player pool, but his choice in personnel is REALLY starting to piss me off. There isn't a person on the planet that is going to convince me that Roldan, Ream, or Lovitz represents the best we had available for this match within our player pool. There's guys on the bench and who weren't called in AT ALL that are MUCH better options.

    He's not a good coach at the international level, period.

    The signs were there from the beginning that this would be a disaster. I had a modicum of hope and optimism at the beginning (as a fan, that’s my natural leaning). But the reality has been:

    1. Baffling team selections
    2. Disorganized “system”
    3. Bizarre substitutions
    4. Garbage results
