Somewhere around 2006 when Bruce Arena decided to make Beasley a Right Wing player, invite a crumbling JOB to the dance and make an aging Reyna the focal point of the US gameplan, I realized that because US coaches do not compete against top managers around the world, they have no one to make them better. That means every quixotic fancy, every hair-brained idea, every obvious bad choice rarely gets tested until it is too late. Playing Bradley at the #6 was such a cataclysmically bad idea we now need to try it again...just in case. Taking players out of position for kicks JK and because of systemic frailties, GGG, is not a problem. Bob bradley leaving the two best attacking players in US history exposed with zero dedicated defensive midfield help...well, it's a systematic and consistent failure of coaches in the US. I feel GGG is like a greatest hits compilation of Bruce and Bob. Players played out of position and some excuse making and just like that, the wrong #6,8,10, and 4. Personnel mistakes and system mistakes. While they remain obvious mistakes when tested against top competition, we wont know until just like 2006 and 2010 and 2014, it's too late. (although I do think 2014 was a year in which we over-achieved). And no doubt some will think: it's too early! give him a chance! Ok, let me know how that turns out when his obvious mistakes are exposed by good opposing coaches. Then it will be some other excuse to hide behind. Our coaches need to coach abroad just like our players need to play abroad in order to ever hope to compete at a top 10 level in the world. MLS is not helping all that much. The top play makers in MLS are foreign. All of them. Anyone can tap in a sitter Morris or Zardes, but who created it? probably not a fellow US teammate. They will be from Argentina, Ecuador, Ghana, Mexico, England, Venezuela, etc. Places where creative soccer is encouraged not systematically discouraged because it fails to meet the coaches overall design. Kreis, Porter, Gonzalez, Armas, Petke, Vermes...it's time to follow Marsch and suck down your ego and pride and go learn how to compete in top leagues.
