    Your points about the USMNT players coming “home” was nothing more than a money-grab by MLS, It put bums in MLS seats and helped boost their ratings to have National Team players within their ranks… little Billy, Sally &, Kartik’s all wearing Bradley’s USMNT top – can now see him play for TFC…. pffft! Instead of fighting for spots in teams in places like Italy, England or Germany, they chose to come back home where they would be marquee players, Be in the starting XI, I mean who would dare sit Captain America??, instead of fighting and working hard! Jurgen was right… although many won’t admit it… coming and playing within MLS was a poor choice! The easy, softer way through for these players… and it showed in how they struggled to kill off a B Team from T&T, no disrespect meant to them, but our Starting XI should have crushed those kids… but could barely be assed to play…

    What direct tv package you got with FS2? I got the choice 3rd highest and still no Fs2. Also who has the EURO Playoff games in November?

    Great podcast about the USMNT missing the World Cup. Y’all always speak the truth and don’t care what the establishment thinks. I love it!

    If I may inject myself into the conversation, I believe the problems with US Soccer is a cultural one. Much like in business culture starts at the top and runs down through an organization. In order to change a culture there must be a change at the top, which means Gulati needs to be replaced first and foremost (Uber is a prime example of changing leadership to change culture). The question now is who? I for one think it would be best to have someone who understands sports but doesn’t come from the soccer world. Look at South Hampton’s Chairman Ralph Krueger. He spent his entire career in hockey before being persuaded to join an EPL squad. A great leader can lead no matter the industry. Having a proven leader from the outside can be just the thing US Soccer needs. I would very much like to get your take on this. Maybe it could be a talking point for a future podcast.

    Always a pleasure gents.
