    I saw a poll on BigSoccer with over 500 votes... almost 85% (when I looked) favored sacking Bradley after Gold Cup.

    Grant Wahl is hinting strongly at it being Klinnsman. There is supposed to be an annoucement tomorrow.

    Thoughts:

    1. It was probably time for fresh blood.

    2. I don't honestly expect it to matter much.

    Man, that's cool. Klinsman transformed the German soccer program into a machine, feeding the WC squad with talent. I hope US Soccer is going to allow him to do that in the US, too.

    Klinsmann should be given carte blanche to make any changes he deems necessary at ALL levels of U.S. Soccer to create the true program that he envisions.

    JK should have been in charge for a few years now. Thrilled to see this move!

    Unfortunately the player pool is the same as it was two days ago, that is to say, not nearly good enough.

    Sort of difficult to say that accurately considering not utilizing the player pool correctly was a major criticism of Bradley.

    Also, "not nearly good enough" for what, exactly? To win the World Cup? Duh.

    "Good enough" to play and compete with Mexico- YES
    "Good enough" to play an interesting style that better utilizes our strenghths?- YES
    "Good enough" to actually improve?- YES
    None of that was happening under BB. Not to mention he had completely lost the team with his poor decisions. I'm guessing that's what finally did him in... watching the Gold Cup, it was obvious the team has developed some serious rifts.

    I know there are big question marks about Klinsmann's abilities as a coach given his really bad stint managing a club, but I think that's secondary to how much I think he'll revolutionize the overall US soccer program. He's the right guy for what US soccer needs right now.

    I'm sure there are a lot of specific criticisms of Bradley that are valid. There are always things that could be done better. But from the non-hyper-fan, big-picture perspective, we have not been underachieving. Comparing our results in international play against where our talent base actually stacks up (not well IMHO), we've done as well as we deserve to.

    I absolutely agree with MWM that Klinsmann's biggest potential impact is in overall national player development. I'm not expecting anything magical to happen with the current age-20+ guys.
