    Right on! He's done so much for MLS, especially the Fire. & if u don't have to be a US citizen to be in the US Soccer Hall of Fame, cast my vote now. He should be there. 'Nuff said!

    That's true. I agree that he, along with Bradley, have turned Chicago into a breeding ground. I'm wondering, though, if maybe it's time to try to have him as a strict coaching capacity. The last few games it seems like he busts out some of the old stuff, but mostly it he's just struggling. Here's hoping that he just needs to get a little more work in to get back match fitness.

    Oh. Well when he retires, I hope he stays in the coaching staff (sniff, sniff.) I would miss him if he didn't. Anyone know if u have to be a U.S. citizen to be in the U.S. Soccer Hall of Fame?

    No, you don't have to be a US citizen.

    Beckenbauer, Chinaglia and Pele were inducted.

    Somehow, I don't think that he will be elected based on working with younger players. Most of his contributions to US soccer are off the field and he is not a coaching staff. His contributions cannot be measured. It will be hard to convince the voters. Marco Etcheverry or Carlos Valderama will get in before him.

    Yep, USSF should sign him to a long contract before he heads home. His name has been emntioned as the national team coach for Bulgaria. He would take the job if it is offered to him.

    Yeah! He's definitely been a boost to the Fire, especially in late game situations. I like his style.

    What did I miss? What has he done?

    Yeah I heard he put his arm around Beasley and gave him some advice at one point, made room for he and Josh to hang out in his basement. What else?

    I believe it's actually SoccerNova's. Though there is talk of establishing a midamerican branch in usbfc's parents' attic.

    Soccer Hall of Fame

    The website looks a little hokey, but the museum is awesome -- the virtual tour will give you an idea of what a good job they've done.

    I went with four other soccer folks on a big pilgrimage to the Hall this summer. We were so fired up by the place that we bought hundreds of bucks worth of souvenir crap.

    Don't wait until Stoitchkov gets inducted to make your trip to Oneanta. Put it at the top of your list.
