    This thread is inspired by the very slow times on the USA soccer scene at this time. See if you can figure who I am by the bio I've provided. All info found on the net.

    I'm an American who played in the NASL. I was a defender and my team won a championship. After retiring, I coached one team and served as general manager of another. I have a few caps.

    You are John Best. You are American, but you were originally a Brit. You played for Cleveland Stokers in the NASL. You were coach of the Seattle Sounders and General Manager of the Vancouver Whitecaps.

    Mario - you're right. Now try this:

    I played in the World Cup and the Olympics for the US. In my professional career, I played in the A league, the Bundesliga and MLS. I'm technical director of a youth league and have my A license. I grew up in California.

    I've played many times against the USA. I was the best at my position in my country. I played for a pro team in the USA but I ended up on the bench behind an American so I went away. Who am I??? :)

    I was thinking either Waldo or Caligiuri....

    I'm not sure if Waldo has his A license, and I don't think Caligiuri ever played in the A league, only B1 and B2 and MLS. Waldo, of course, played with the Charleston Battery.

    I guess you're right, it must be Waldo.

    I'm a US international and currently playing for a club in Europe. Before Europe, I played all my soccer career in state of California.

    Who am I?

    Nope - not Waldo. Ok - here's another clue - played in a must win game against Canada in order to qualify for the Olympics.

    It's not Frankie Hejduk is it? That's the only possibility I can think of before my first cup of coffee.

    Mike Lapper played in Bundesliga, MLS, and was on the Olympic team. He seems to have everything but the A-League.
