Re: Juan Agudelo training with VfB Stuttgart Huh. I thought he had a few games under his belt by now. Guess not. My basic point, though, is that it's nice for Agudelo and US players in general to get some high-level training, but that it's misguided to assume that "European" coaches are going to be a step up from MLS coaches. The top European coaches, sure. But the average European coach? Meh. Hardly a slam-dunk. For one thing, Agudelo's club coach IS a European coach with a fairly impressive resume who still hasn't done much in MLS despite having a lot more money at his disposal than most MLS coaches. The only guy with equal financing has been Bruce Arena, and that's a pretty stark contrast.
