lets talk about how petero cironicevo is really fijian hahahha
im just yankin your chain. australia rugby is really at its finest right now. League is always a good watch with the State of Origin series just passed. the reds just won the super league title. the wallabies DISMANTLED the springboks last week. they are my pick for the world cup. i hope they smash the bluddy all blacks
I really hope you get a capable Co-manager, cause when he was in germany, while he was the motivator, the guy with a vision, Löw was pulling most of the strings
This. I don't understand all the hooplah and excitement for Klinsmann. As a friend of mine put it,
"Klinsmann has had two gigs in his life. He coached Germany and finished third in the WC. With a team that talented and playing at home, it's hard to say how much of that was Klinsmann's merit, considering that Loew was his assistant coach. The other, 1 season with Bayern Munich that saw him canned before the season ended. Sure, he's marketable, but can someone remind me why the US is incredibly excited for this guy?"
In any case, there's one more thing I forgot to say a while ago:
Hopefully the US can finally start playing attacking football. Bradley/Arenas were using prehistoric strategies (one striker -- really?) and always seemed to want to outwork and out-grind other teams instead of outplaying them. And it's not like the US doesn't have enough talent to do this -- Japan this year, Ghana, and even Uruguay. Those squads aren't supremely talented, I'd put the US about on par with them (Uruguay being better, but US not far behind).
It was also excruciating to watch Bradley/Arenas play players that they were loyal to, would work hard, but ultimately sucked (Ricardo Clark, Claudio Reyna, Benny Feilhaber, Robbie Findley, Hercules Gomez, Edson Buddle, Bornstein, I'm looking at you...). It was good to see Bradley finally do something out of character and go for a risk in playing Adu in the Gold Cup and it payed off. This conservative style of soccer needs to go, it's why England hasn't won a World Cup in forever.
