    A thoroughly deserved 2-0 victory for Canada.

    Steffen can hold his head high, unlike everybody else on the staff and field...

    I'm pretty much at the point of being done with US soccer. The experiment has failed.

    Pitiful effort that once again is all on our dimwit of a manager. Poor player selection coupled with naive and inflexible tactics is always going to lead to this type of underperformance.

    This team is both difficult to watch and ineffective. I could maybe deal with one or the other, but not both.

    Getting Adams back and integrating some of the promising youngsters, if he’s even smart enough to use them, might ultimately bail GrEgghead out. Still going to be frustrating though knowing that our squad will likely be playing at 70% of its potential because of asinine and stubborn coaching.

    What do we need to do to get this fool fired? Let’s get on it!

    i said the midfield stunk against cuba and was told that was just how the system works, or that i lack an eye for soccer

    Get rid of Berhalter, Roldan, Bradley, and Lovitz.

    Any replacements would be an improvement.

    What a shit show. A certified USSF shit show.

    team needs to mutiny and force ussf's hand so individual players don't get isolated and punished so the coach keeps his job

    Any discussion of how players looked should wait until Berhalter has been fired.

    GGG is in over his head but I am not convinced a new manager is a difference maker. The players lacked focus and energy tonight. Yes some of that is on the coach to have them prepared better. But they are professional athletes and I did not see professional effort tonight.

    Crucial giveaway by Bradley... again. Aaron Long massively overrated and a liability both on the ball and as a defender.

    No matter how ineffective Pulisic has been in a match, you cripple the US by removing him.

    Biggest issue is one that is obvious to all observers except seemingly the head coach- Bradley's legs are shot and we cede the midfield against even mediocre competition when he's in the game.

    this is what happens when missionary work supersedes results

    and if you're trying to play pretty soccer a moron would then select prettier soccer players

    how the eff do you change how a team plays when you start a bunch of hardhat mids

    Giving one up at the near post? that's a no-no. I'm a Steffen booster no doubt but singling out Steffen is odd.

    Morris was good too. He doesn’t deserve to be lumped with the rest of the turds.

    The scoreline flattered the US. Berhalter absolutely useless with his subs, and his tactics have left way too many questions against the mid tier CONCACAF.

    Its one thing to lose, sometimes it happens. Its a whole other to look hapless and clueless. There was next to no energy, no real idea of what to do. And the coach obviously couldn't help them out of their funk. Absolute garbage performance that looks like Couva without WC on the line. Canada absolutely bossed the US in every facet. If not for some misses and good Steffen stops it is easily 5-0. There is zero good GB has done.
