    Goose was good. It's just that we was horrible in 2002. That gets him on the list.

    I got see him play for Ajax youth at Dallas Cup. So many great teams over the years! Boy, that was a long time ago when the big games were at Wildcats / Rams Stadium in Dallas - a very narrow football stadium shared between two high schools that held 5-10K. It was worse when they "upgraded" it to field turf. HS soccer is still played on those narrow football designed fields with field turf. If you've ever watched a craptacular game on one of those fields you know what they mean when they say a stadium is soccer specific even if other stuff is played there.

    Believe me I have played HS soccer and college rugby on those fields. The extra bit of space makes a difference. As a defender it was a great way to slow down speed guys.

    Agoos was very good. But... he had two howlers that live in infamy. One in '97 v Jamaica and of course the spectacular '02 vs Portugal. It's fair that that's what people remember. But other than that, I loved his game. I agree with your description "a rock" — steady, calm (99.9% of the time), hard-nosed, deadly set pieces.

    I saw Landon Donovan do something similar to FCD. I went to see Beckham on his first or second trip through. The place was packed. Dallas used the opportunity to come out strong and went up something like 3 goals. Donovan got ticked off and took over the game and scored/created something like 5 goals to beat Dallas 5 or 6 to 4. He was of a different quality than the other players, even Beckham. Watching Beckham pass the ball in warm ups was worth the price of admission, however...he could hit the ball with every part of his foot and send it anywhere on the field with whatever english he wanted to put on it. He'd send the ball from the corner flag to the opposite touch line at half field and drop it right on the other guys foot every time, no matter how he hit it. I'd never seen anything like it.

    Well, I’m 39, so I don’t think that qualifies me as a boomer. My first US Soccer memory is Caligiuri scoring against Czechoslovakia and going to Colorado Foxes APSL matches.

    I feel more Gen-X than millennial but it’s all semantics I guess.

    When you're born at the beginning of a "generation", you usually won't feel like that generation. Cuts both ways. I'm a '93, so I'm probably more similar to my younger cousins born in 1999/2001 (1997 is the next gen cutoff), than I am to you.

    Xennial is the term. That's me, too (37). If you haven't come across this mini-generation, look it up. It's pretty cool to read about, because I sure as shit have never felt like any of the supposed "millenial" characteristics applied to me, nor gen-x.

    I'm supposedly a boomer but that's a two decade long generation and I feel very little in common with those 15-20 years older than I am. I think generations are about 10 years give or take a year or two as life speeds up and slows down.

    98 team is on Harkes and Wynalda's wife. It denied us the brilliance of Steve Sampson and the 361

    Perhaps. There was a bit of prescience to the 3-6-1.

    In the end, the personnel was decent but poorly deployed.

    Morale was abysmal.

    This is a fascinating thought experiment. Superficially simple, yet, like so much in US Soccer, frustratingly complicated.

    1. ReyaLalasMeolaDMBGoochDeuceLandypulicakes - there is really no way to narrow it to one. If US Soccer was so simple, I doubt this forum would exhibit so much controversy

    2. DaviesHolden

    3. ABMODGyasiBD, (80% of Berhalter 1.0)

    and I'm not even satisfied with this answer. Cheers
