The best leagues and the best players are all in Europe. Iron sharpens iron. Some US guys playing domestically under a coach who's perhaps best known for the other worst failure in US international soccer history -- also embedded into that MLS racket -- with leadership at US Soccer invested solely in the perpetual monetary success of MLS over, say, putting the best possible product on the field, leads to what happened last night.

CONCACAF is the beer league of international soccer, with every advantage tipped towards the US qualifying, and we still made a hash of it.

Should have left Bruce and Sunil on the airport tarmac as far as I'm concerned.

Time for a hard look at why we should play anyone who gets serious run in MLS over better leagues worldwide, or hire an American coach for that matter.
