  1. Thanks for posting the run down here. It safes time posting it on what in my opinion is fast becoming the central hub for serious talk on the American soccer scene. What the report indicates is that too many quality US players are being left to rot on European benches. Simply in many cases the stale European coaches can not appreciate the talent of the American players for what it is but must have them fit into a old world format. The O’Neils and Moyes are rare exceptions who accept the talented American’s for what they are and btw WIN with them! Howard and Bradley get results for their teams, but how can anyone explain why a World Cup veteran like Beasley is sitting on a bench and he is not the only one.
