Unfortunately, my friends I spoke with beforehand have had to back out, so I'm trying to find someone else to join us. I wish they would just issue regular tickets so that I just sell the extras, but this whole mobile ticket plan has me concerned I might get stuck with 2 extra tickets if there's no way to resell them.

    You can transfer them via Ticketmaster Transfer. If you were to sell them on Craigslist or something. Just ask for Paypal/Venmo and then you can transfer them to someone's email address

    He needs to go as much as Marvin Lewis does. Which is to say, immediately.

    That was the worst I have ever seen a US side look. Ever. This is not hyperbole.

    Chandler has no business being on a pitch. John Brooks played some of the worst soccer I have ever seen.

    Bradley and Jones are DONE.

    There was no heart. No skill. No strategy. Just a bunch of lazy jackasses kicking a ball around and loafing as if it was an intramural game.

    If Klinsmann isn't relieved of duty after this, US Soccer has no hope.
    I heard your record..it's alright.

    The main problem is that US Soccer is still run (and expects to be treated like) an organization that is pulling the cart uphill when it comes to supporting the sport in this country.

    We're not "there" yet as a soccer-playing nation, but we're way more "there" than we were even 10 years ago, and it's time for US Soccer to reflect that in how the national team program is run and what the expectations are.

    Gonzalez jogging toward the end line as the Costa Rica player ran the ball down and got a free look to pick out a pass for the first goal is burned in my mind. I cannot imagine how Gonzalez wasn't immediately pulled at that point.

    Don't forget how Brooks wasn't running and ball watching while his man ran to the only spot where he could get a header. That play was symbolic of the whole game really.

    Bradley was a disaster and wasn't much better in Mexico. I think he's trying to speed up tempo, but isn't on the same page with anyone and just boots the ball to no one and turns it over constantly. Jones is coming off an injury and hasn't played hardly at all in 3 months yet played 180 minutes in 4 days? You have to be kidding me.

    Jurgen has to go. You can't be experimenting with formations and playing guys out of position in WC qualifying. You have to win the games. If you want to experiment schedule a friendly against Canada or something and play the 3-5-2 to your heart's desire. Don't do it against our biggest rival and a place where we haven't won in 8 tries. What do you think is going to happen?

    I think the band aid answer is to call up Bruce Arena and see if he can right the ship and get us to the WC.

    They've got a little time to make the decision. Their next qualifier isn't until March. The no-show in Costa Rica was embarrassing, but getting the right person in there should be the priority.

    A few thoughts:

    - Costa Rica is a a really good team. They went to the final 8 at the World Cup. The U.S. hasn't won there in a long time. At least Team USA got smoked by a quality side.

    - Brooks had a bad couple of games, but he played spectacularly in the Copa America. I'd give him a pass on this. Who plays next to him is the bigger question. Also, the team is suffering from a lack of wing backs. Time to plant Yedlin back there and let him take ownership or the right wing.

    - Bradley and Jones may not be done, but they are at the tail end of the MLS season (both are still in the playoffs) and their legs are probably shot. Yet the U.S. should be looking for guys that can hang with the likes of Celso Borges (criminally underrated) and Hector Herrera.
    Wait until the year after next year.

    All reasonable points. I'm about halfway with you there. I think Bradley's probably still got a few years, but I think he's pretty clearly a defensive mid as opposed to center attacking mid now. I think Jones is probably done by now. Whether you call the formation 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 basically having Bradley and Pulisic in the middle makes sense to me.

    The 3-5-2/3-4-3 formation they played against Mexico made very little sense to me. In my mind, for that formation to work, the central defender and Central attacking midfielder/Central Forward have to be to two of the best players on the field.

    IMO, this just showed Klinsmann over his head and it seems like the players have lost the belief in him once and for all.
    Now is the time to make a coaching change, I'd go back to Arena simply for the fact that it's the easiest short time fix.
