USA vs. Costa Rica preview: Berhalter faces stiff test against Costa Rica

The Gregg Berhalter era got off to a flying start as the US trounced Panama 3-0 on Sunday night in Glendale, Arizona. With the win, Berhalter became just the third US manager to win his debut match. Five players made their first ever appearance for the US. A number of the new kids gave a good account of themselves as the US dominated possession and never really looked threatened or even uncomfortable. This all needs to be taken with a grain of salt, however. All due respect to Panama but this was essentially what is best described as their D ... Read more

USA vs. Panama preview: Berhalter faces pressure to win back USMNT fans

For better or worse, it’s time to accept that Gregg Berhalter is now the US Men’s National Team (USMNT) coach. Unfortunately, he was done a disservice by the US Soccer Federation because instead of naming him coach soon after the Trinidad debacle and giving him 18 months to prepare for his first competitive games, they waited until December 2018 to make the hire (despite knowing he was the guy since day one), which gives him just six months to prepare for his first competitive games. The annual January Camp has given fans a first real look at what Berhalter plans ... Read more

USSF continues string of mistakes with Gregg Berhalter hiring

On October 10, 2017, the US Men’s National Team lost to Trinidad and Tobago 2-1 on the darkest day in American soccer history, thus failing to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1986. It capped off what had been, for the most part, a miserable four year qualifying cycle. It saw the US finish 4th at the 2015 Gold Cup and then lose the ensuing CONCACAF Cup to arch-rival Mexico (thus failing to qualify for the 2017 Confederations Cup). It saw a 4-0 humiliation at the hands of Argentina in the Copa America Centenario. It saw ... Read more

USA vs. Italy preview: Morale among US fans continues to plummet

If it wasn’t clear during the last round of friendlies, it sure became crystal clear during a 3-0 shellacking at the hands of England on Thursday: the USMNT needs to hire a full-time manager. Now. Not after the end of the international window, not after MLS Cup Final, but now. The team looked lost at Wembley. And it’s not surprising given that the last year has been more about blooding newer and younger players (which was vital) rather than focusing on creating an identity and consistent system. The lack of consistency reared its ugly head against one of the top ... Read more

USA vs. England preview: Young Americans face The Three Lions at Wembley

The international soccer calendar for 2018 is drawing to a close. November always represents the last games of the year for the USMNT. This year is no different. The permanent manager still has yet to be named, though every person knows it’s going to be Gregg Berhalter. But setting aside the incompetence of the US Soccer Federation, the two games that the US has set for this November window keeps in sync with the scheduling philosophy since missing the World Cup. Since last November, the schedule has consisted of mostly European and South American opposition with just one team from ... Read more
