"Told Gregg halter, sell us the idea of this progressive football. This possession based football with wing progressions. This exciting brand of offensive football. You took over. We're talking about what we finished qualifiers. Let me finish nobody said tout out the youngest lineup you can find Greg. Nobody said, make a makeshift lineup 7 changes to it and tout it out against Panama. That was you. And we certainly didn't say put yourself behind the 8 ball and leave it all to the final window in the final home game in Columbus, Ohio. That was Greg Bernard. He talks about this external pressure. About, hey, this isn't going to be easy. It's not what you guys think. We didn't say that. You said that. Your team last FIFA fixture date said 9 points. So the pressure was on you. You said they were going to play a certain way. So the pressure's on you. You tout out this young lineup, so the pressure is on you. You made 7 changes. The pressure is on you. I don't know why all of a sudden they want to get insecure with this. 6 points was the bare minimum you had to do. The bare minimum and he did that. So the main charge here for Greg berhalter is probably like that he over rotated, right? That's the main thing that we can accuse him of. But if we look back, I think he actually didn't over rotate. The 7 changes against Panama. When we look at what Mexico did in their last game against outside of the world, they made 8 changes, right? And they were still able to go into El Salvador and win that game to nothing hurt. And what we learned there is that the Mexican players, Mexico's second group was capable. I think the Panama game was not a failure of Greg berhalter. It was some players who had individual bad nights at a very bad time. They lost that game. Greg berhalter's rotation did not. If that doesn't satisfy you, let me look at the guys at the teams that didn't rotate. And what happened to them? Panama. Remember, we said, oh, they only made two changes from their first to the second game against the United States. They only made one change from their second to their third game. What happened in that third game? What happened in the second half of that third game? They shipped three goals in 12 minutes against Canada and lost four to one. That's a huge defeat for Panama. Let's focus in on Costa Rica. Why don't we? Costa Rica made three changes from their second to their third game, two of those changes, by the way, forced, or these because of COVID-19 and Joel Campbell because of an injury. And what happened to Costa Rica in the second half? We literally saw the human definition of somebody running out of gas in Brian Ruiz. Costa Rica didn't have it in the 6th half of these three games. Do not confuse. And that's why they got those three points. Go ahead. You can't, you can't criticize them objectively. If you can't criticize, subjectively about how they play and this and that, you can, but objectively you can not criticize because you you set out the minimum. You said it was 5 points last time, and he hit that. Now you said it was 6 points, and without Christian ballistic, and without your pointy hit. I'm criticizing how he went about it. This is where you're so far off. You're naming these teams. You forget, they took each game at a time. They made their rotation. How did it work? Did anyone beside Sebastian Salazar is what you're telling me? You're comparing you. You can ferry goes to rika, whose youngest player was 27 years old against the U.S. men's national team, who's all this player was 26 years old on that day. You can not compare the two. You're comparing depth on one squad to another. You can't compare the two. The circumstances are different. This is why it was a failure for Greg beholder. Not the points because that was a bare minimum. Nobody's gonna say they didn't get what they needed to get. I'm telling you Panama was there for the taking and he didn't take it. He got too cute. All right, you want to get subjective? Let's be subjective. Let's grade the performance against Costa Rica. Because there, I think we can maybe in a more friendly manner agree to disagree. Now, which grading scale are we going to use here? Because I got in a lot of hot water for my E's last time around. So we go, ABCD, F, what grade are you giving this U.S. team for the performance against Costa Rica? I'm going to give them a B it's just a B, it's not to be minus, none of you plus, and like.

"Eunice Moussa's back in, but you have a couple different players in there as well. Sebastian legit, Kellen Acosta. And I think it's a cliche Taylor, but it really feels like this game is lost in midfield. What do we make of the different levels of play that we see three days apart from a midfield trio that wall is different still has one guy in it that's the same, and that's unusual. Yeah, what's concerning for me, her concept is this is that there really is only one 6 on this roster. And that's Tyler Adams. And the moment you take Tyler Adams out of the middle, everything looks discombobulated. Everything looks unhinged, and it doesn't feel comfortable within the system. Yes, he came off the bench in this one, but there was energy immediately to the game. Everyone had a little bit more pep in their step, whatever it may be, there was a few more options to pass the ball through the midfield and whatnot. I think western mckenney at times plays as if he wants to run the show as if he's the guy that can run the show. I don't think he's that type of player, and I think he needs to transform mores to the guy that we saw at Schalke. And so I understand the area concern, and I get it. But I'm still, and I know I'm beating a dead horse here, but they're not creating a ton of chances. The final product isn't there all the time. And I know great bear alternate staff love the model of expected goals, but when you look at the last 13 games that I'm beaten, it's not as if they're creating two three four expected goals every single game. And so chances are extremely limited for this team. So no matter what it is, and I understand if Tyler Adams is healthy, the midfields less of a concern for me, but regarding Ricardo Pepe up front or not. This team still struggles to score goals. And Eric, I don't know if you've seen the same thing I have yet why can they not score goals in the first half and then have to react? Change things and come out the second half. That in a nutshell is a problem. Yeah, and instead he was alluding to that earlier on in the segment where you talk about he got things right a half time. His adjustments were correct and they weren't this go around. That's still begs the question, why are you starting that way? Now we talk about Greg bertram, stani wants to implement and Taylor, you're right, he loves he's expected goals. He's very much excuse the term. Statin nerd when it comes to that. A PowerPoint nerd. But the football has been played that way. Football isn't played with numbers, played with feeling, it's played with instincts. And this is the problem. We talk about him being a possession based coach. This team being a possession based team, for ten halves, they've not been that. They've had two good halves, 8 very bad halves. And you look at the outside backs to me very important because when those acts outside effects have been good and taken care of the ball, it gets the center of the midfield going. It gets Tyler Adams. It gets western McKinney. Whoever's in there, younes Musa whoever's in there involved which gets their junior desk, Antony Robinson. When those fullbacks are good, when they take care of the ball, the team has confidence when they don't, they rely on their center backs to come out with it, and it's root one and it's very, very ugly. It feels a lot of the times like there's home run swings on these lineups, right? And sometimes it hits. Sometimes it doesn't. And I don't know if those risks are necessary, but I assume Gregg halter knows the depth of his of his talent pool better than we do. Let me ask this. Before we move on from the Panama game real quick. Panama in this match was Concacaf to an extreme almost. There's a point where you can have the stretchers come out as much as you want. But there's a difference to me like another line that's crossed when folks are running onto the field at very convenient moments and balls are coming in at very convenient moments. You guys have lived through all the shenanigans of Concacaf. And I know we accept games mention to a point in this region. Did it cross a line into cheating Taylor last night? Well, I mean, what do we expect from Concacaf guys? We're doing a World Cup qualifying round without VAR. And so you guys obviously heard me during the first half of Jamaica, absolutely blow a gasket on this. It's mind boggling to me. And yet you literally had fans running onto the field in beta on city asking for selfies. There were three balls on the field at one point. At what point is Concacaf's gonna look at itself and say, you know what? Fine. But I remind everyone watching this show. In 2017, Panama qualified for the World Cup on a goal that never went in. A goal that never went in. Was parents headed it and went outside the nets came back in. It was all about and went in and they give it a goal because of no VAR. They're like, it's good. Enjoy Russia. I don't know what to do. I don't see her. Expect the unexpected when it comes to concave half is the way I look at it. But you're right. That's the way it's always been, and that's the way it will be in the only way it's going to change is if you implement things like var and I understand most stadiums aren't set up to be quick with var, but those who have it should be allowed to use it. It's very simple to me. And Concacaf, it's known for the dark arts, it's known for stretching its rules, probably more than the Taylor's wearings being stretched. It's the way it is. Taylor, you'll be in Columbus for the game against Costa Rica. Let's look forward to that match for just a second. All right, so you got Greg berhalter's here. You can tell one player that he's gotta put back into the starting lineup for this game. Columbus is easy against Costa Rica. Based on what you said, I think we know who it's going to be, but who is it? It's Tyler Adams. I'm not moving them. I'm not making the fact that he started the first half at right back against Honduras was mind boggling to me..

"By these fans. So a lot of fans who see Major League Soccer has a polarizing entity who see Major League Soccer players as a weak link within the U.S. men's national team. I don't buy into that, but Greg ber Holter and these players getting these results in the cirque essential way is feeding this narrative. And it's not a good thing to have this type of divide. Maybe the only national team in the world where there is this what's the word to say, where is this spike of the domestic league with its players? I think farc is just backing sergeant here. He just doesn't want to say that it's because he's dropped out of form. That's why he's not called in. So he's kind of providing another excuse. If I'm a U.S. fan or a sergeant fan, I kind of like it. Your managers back in your guide. The other point is if you had called in Josh Sargent, you're probably only getting him for what? Two of the three games. I mean, if we look at the examples of Antony Robinson, if we look at the example of Zack Stefan, they don't make the trip to Panama. It is on the UK red list. So Josh sergeant had he scored in those first three games? You bet they would have called him in, even if he's only available for 2003. That tie breakers held against fair enough, but that the martino got raul he managed for all three games and even with reckless country. So make that take it for what it's worth. All right, let's bring in Taylor twin, and then he joins us to discuss more of the fallout from the United States one nothing defeat against Panama in Panama City. Taylor, you just had to listen to us prattle on there for a little while. Who do you think is more to blame? The manager or the players? You two are the best. I absolutely love this show. Every single time I'm on it. Honestly, Greg burr said it's on him, right? Gregg said it's on him and his staff. And so he answers the question for us. And so he raises his hand. He takes accountability and says it is on him. I completely agree with her and you, Seb in the sense that if you look at what Germany did, if you look at what the Netherlands did against lesser opponents, they rotated maybe three players. Not 7. And so you're over calculating in your overthinking this three days of travel and high heat and whatever. This is World Cup qualifying. You have to get as many points as you can get as quickly as possible no matter who's in front of you. And so for me, there's a way over calculation about the travel and the humidity and heat which by the way for the record, if you are going to make 7 changes in that kind of weather, it behooves you to use Major League Soccer players that have been planned in that weather for the last four months. So how those players showed up and laid an egg with no energy, no enthusiasm, nothing whatsoever is beyond me, but this is on the manager, because in my opinion, the rest of the world is still treating every single opponent the same way by rotating the squad with two or three players, not an overhaul of 7 players against a team that Mexico struggled playing down there as you said her. Any team that's played Panama in Panama has struggled. So the proof is in the pudding. You've seen it. Panama is a better team than they have been in years past quite honestly than when we've gone down there. Myself in the generation ahead of us that went down there and got results. And so I just think there was way too much overthinking in this and they under calculated how good Panama is at home and they're overthinking this way too much at times about fitness and about travel and all of this. When the rest of the world is doing similar types of things. Now in saying that Seb, I'm with you in this extent. The players have some accountability, my word. It's one thing to talk about tactics in technique and hers tweeted this and he's a 100% right about arrogance. But the first thing you got to have, the first thing you've got to have is energy. You've got to have the ability to run compete and fight. If you don't even have that, I can't even talk about the other stuff because you're not providing the simple fundamental thing, which is run through a wall and play for your country, which they got none of that last night, and four years ago, the United States lost a Trinidad and Tobago. This was almost an identical performance that made everyone want to puke because she didn't get to compete factor first. Talk about tactics later. But give me the compete. And give me the fights and then we'll worry about whether or not you can pass the ball. But if you're not gonna run what's the point of showing up? Yeah, let me run something by you. Okay, 'cause I heard this narrative about running about trying about intensity. And that's all that's all good. It looks good from afar. But have you ever been Taylor? Have you ever been in an environment where your legs feel weak? We're all of a sudden the opponents on top of you where you see the crowd and you're like, I don't see this weekend week out. And in the goal comes in and you feel like the world is coming down on you. I saw that from these players. So we can talk about trying we can talk about competing. We can talk about intensity. We can talk about desire all that stuff. But if you've never been there done that, that seems so that's something to be said there. Okay. Experiences a real thing, her, the experiences of real thing. It's a great point. It's a real thing. One of the things that came out of the first match was how everybody was in love with this new young midfield. The midfield trio that Greg berhalter uses in Austin against Jamaica, right? Wesson McKinney Tyler Adams Eunice Musa. Obviously, there's some limitations there, right? Tyler Adams, he's told us Gregg halter that he's got to watch those minutes. He hasn't been playing with Leipzig 90 minutes a game. He's not going to risk him here. Wesley McKinney, we know wasn't available for this match. Eunice Moussa's back in, but you have a couple different players in there as well. Sebastian legit, Kellen Acosta. And I think it's a cliche Taylor, but it really feels like this game is lost in.

"Dangerous. How is he not in the best. Twenty six hurt okay. So obviously gregg berhalter does not see him as a nine sees him as a wide player. Matthew hoppy is also in this limbo situation with this club. So this doesn't surprise me you you gotta let them sort that out and you can't just sign go somewhere and say hey by the way. I'm leaving if you're not an established player right now bundesliga too. I don't mind this look at the players who are in front of me. What do we have in front of matthew. Hoppy you're going to have christian pulisic gio raina. You're going to have who else do you have. Brendan errands and who's been absolutely on fire timmy. Way he had a great gold cup but versus gold cup opponents. These other players have been noonan at a higher level so with this club situation. I think it lends himself for. Maybe it's between him. And conrad. And if conrad establishing that clubs situation. Maybe greg hold a conversation with them. Fix your club situation. We'll go from there. Look you want to sing. George bellows praises. How does he get the call up. He doesn't surprise raise and doesn't get it on gold cup performance but you asked me. I said yeah that surprised me okay. What about george. Bello is surprise. Because he's there. Because of the position. Because i think what's really interesting. Is you basically look at him desk. You got two or three outside backs. Everybody else that they brought in on defense. And he brought ten defenders. He's got seven players who are all centrebacks or potentially centrebacks in back three does that tell us what formation wealthy formation. He's look he's looking at probably working at it three centreback formation and players who could potentially be part of that i was also surprised at james sands is on this list. Not the james sands is a bad player. But i didn't think he had a great gold cup. Wants the competition got stiffer. I thought he struggled even the all star game yesterday. You saw there's still some things in his game sometimes. Where maybe. He's a little over competent. Maybe he's not as great a defender as you think he's very good. Pass another back. Sometimes that that'll get you in trouble. I was surprised that maybe a chris richards for example wasn't on this list. Chris richards i. I know it's a club situation.

"First choice player for gregg berhalter. I think we all understand that. How about james sands. what's his. What's his place now. I think he did well. I think he's improved. His stock is stock. Is definitely gone up but as as a starter pencil then for the. Us team in a world qualifier. Not quite yet but miles robinson. What you love about mas robinson is. He's a right footed centre-back so when john brooks is on the left. It's a natural fit. Mark mckenzie's left-center left-footed centreback playing on the right. And he had a tough time against mexico although he rebounded against costa in the following match. If you take any stock in that match isn't two footed. Yeah but he's he's left. Would i mean that's preferred foot Either way those two if if mark starts off while in europe they're really going to be competing for that starting spot alongside john brooks and feel good about that. You feel really good about that. Because if mark doesn't continue to progress the what we've seen for miles. Robinson i mean is anticipation what what impressed me. The most throughout the gold cup with mas robinson is his ability to be beyond the ball. And be confident with this passing. I think his feet sharper and then he did step in to the midfield a couple times with the ball to start an attack he was playing switch balls to to the other flank. I was like is. This isn't the miles. Robinson i've seen the past. That's what i was thinking. Yeah him in belo he was like go at and it's like they were ready for it now. There was that play where robinson carries it all the way just continues carrying it. Look very comfortable moving up and then continues running the box To try to get on the end of it think he's three goals now in nine caps which is tremendous shows this threat as on set-pieces and as far as sands go you know we talked about the growth from young players individually also collectively the best way i think for young players to learn. You're gonna learn hard lessons right but you're going to add to better to learn and a win in a victory with trophy at the end and you could see sands learning a lot throughout the tournament. And he won as well and he he did enough and he looked more comfortable as things went on. I like him in a three back in a three centreback system. I think he could be used in that situation. I also think that that could be a good look for the us. Men's national team at certain points. I know that something greg's been interested in doing but the question we had coming out of nations league was do we have enough centreback. Good like we have three strong centre-back options that we can play in that position. And i think we sort of talked about it on the last show. But if you use. Mackenzie brooks and robinson that's three and then sands can also play at times in in the middle of those as well or maybe on the right so..

USMNT Announces Gold Cup Roster

"Right into a charlie. This is this is what we like to do. This is only like to think about. This is what we're looking forward to this summer after that. Big nations league victory from the us. Mnt the gold cup. We knew that this was not going to be the same roster. That went out competed oakley one that nation's league tournament gregg berhalter has been saying it for a long time. We're gonna have to separate groups. There might be a little bit of overlap and likely that overlap is gonna come from mls players because it is the summer and you've got transfer window open you've got guys going into preseason camps trying to earn their way like for instance. He said brian reynolds not here because joe's marino doesn't generally play younger players so they want brian reynolds to beat at roma from the jump with the new manager to make sure he has a chance to get into the team otherwise he's going to be working From behind a couple other names in that scenario where cameron carter vickers gotta figure his cup situation. Eric palmer brown to figure out his cup situation. And greg said admitted our centre-back cool is a little bit light. So here is the roster for those of you who haven't seen it goalkeepers matt turner the likely starter. Funny story there. We'll get to that shawn johnson. Brad gazon defenders george bellew reggie cannon shack more. That was a little bit of a surprise. Donovan pines another site. Surprise but again center back a little bit thin per berhalter miles robinson a starter says greg james sands sam vines and walker zimmerman the other presume starter at center back in the midfield coma. Kosta general kabuchiko stand up kansas city especially jet criminal. Don eric williamson. Who was my must have on this roster injection you'll end up top paul arriola gerald decay. Nicholas keeney matthew hoppy. Who's in for the first time. Jonathan lewis josse artists. Give me your initial reactions. You saw this. Twenty-three you're thinking about the summer you're thinking about the task at hand which is both to win a gold cup but also develop players to push into the first team to get to the world cup. What are you thinking right now on this thursday morning for me. I'm thinking there's not any anyone that i'm particularly surprised about. That's one too. I think this group is is has enough quality to win now if mexico brings. They're a team. That's going to be challenged in especially with mexico hungary to avenge that nation's league loss.

Philadelphia Union unveil 2021 secondary jersey

"I gotta ask you about the big story of the day the philadelphia union out here blowing my socks off with the second kit with the lightning bolts with the sons of bins colors. might not be up your wheelhouse. But i i love this. These are the little offseason things that i see that. I'm god i can't wait to see the union where this kid. I love the fact that the union went out and didn't just say hey we'll ask a couple of people will do some surveys. What do you think this club represents. No they stuffed a bunch of people in a room. They made them part of the process and from that was birthed a magnificent kit that i am basically begging the union to send me right now. I didn't really realize i was doing that. But i am doing that. So philadelphia union. If you'd like to send me a kit. I wear large. I love what you've done. It's a beautiful beautiful thing yet so kit discussions. They're not my wheelhouse story. That mixed metaphors are up your wheelhouse but no it's gorgeous and it's distinct and that's what i really care about does. It doesn't look different out. There is it immediately identifiable when you turn on the tv. And you're watching this team And i liked the fact that the union have gone in that direction. My favorite kits around the league over the years have been the ones that stand out a bit and this certainly Certainly checks that box

The First American To Play For Barcelona

"Two Weekends Ago Nineteen Year Old Sergio Desk became the first American to play for one of the world's biggest soccer clubs. The new. Number, two for Barcelona Savino desk off the bench here today. Today the FX Palton Oreo on desks rapid rise and why the young star has chosen to play for the US instead of his birth country of Holland. showed him their vision for what he was going to be in the future they believed in him and he hadn't seen anything from Holland until he broke into the first team that I act. So I think there is a sign of Sergio recognizing wind people believe in him in when people give him the support to be successful. From in the athletic, I'm under skelter and I'm Davidson, it's Friday October sixteen, and this is the lead. It felt like something great was happening. There is something about the emotion. For. The past because. that. This isn't a story. View the. It stays with you. So. Paul how would you describe the way that Sergio plays? Well, I would say he's definitely more of the modern fullback that we see in today's game. Is An attacking player first and foremost. DSP little slow to react to. That very quick very good one on one defender, but his strongest traits are pushing forward. With the ball crossings desk. Space he's not afraid to be creative. He's not afraid to try different things. Back so Yeah he he plays with the mindset of attacking player who is looking to create goals. And get a sense of the hype around surging your desk. How good is this dude expected to be? Yeah I mean I think there are a lot of hopes for what he can be you know Barcelona spending twenty, five, million euros to sign him that puts a a heavy amount of expectation on Sergio Desk I mean this is not a taking a flyer on a guy paying five million euros form and hoping he works out and develops know when that kind of money is being spent. The expectation is that you come in and you contribute right away. And in the case of Sergio that means producing assists, it means holding your own in the Champions League and I think there is a lot of belief that he can be that type of player I mean I think there's going to be a huge spotlight on that club this year because it could potentially be Messier's final season at Barcelona, and so the hope that club is that they can win Champions League maybe do something to convince messy to stay and that's what you're walking into. If you're Sergio Desk and Paul, what's your sense of Sergio personality what's he like he comes across as kind of a quiet kid? I believed in myself. So that's like the reason I get focused and I played really well and this you know he. Is Very Smart. He certainly is not afraid to Kinda give his analysis of his teams and where he fits in the and the last two minutes I just made a unbelievable mistake and that's What I learned from it. But. What's interesting is when you talk to other people about him, what's he like kind of away from the media spotlight were you probably get a better idea of his personality? It seems like he is. I guess the best way to put as maybe like an interesting dude, like he you know he kind of goes to the beat of his own drum. He's got a kind of a bright personality and we're starting to see little bits of that I think as he grows comfortable with the spotlight that's on him. Now, we'll you've been digging into Sergio rise to stardom including speaking with some of his former youth coaches in the Netherlands. Tell us a little about the path he's followed. Well, he was signed with his academy from a local club. At. Quite a young age and I think what's interesting is At I xe the expectation when you go to a club like that and you go into an academy like that is immediately, how is he gonNA fit in as a professional and I think there were some concerns about whether or not Sergio had the discipline to succeed. As a professional you saw that topic come up with a number of his youth coaches at I you. Was He going to take things seriously enough. Well, what were some of the things that he was doing that we're raising red flags among some of these youth coaches? Well, they vocalise some of them and they didn't they hinted at others. There's little things like Sergio not showing up to school. Where was his focus and and having to sit down and have talks about professionalism and you can interpret it however many ways you want is showing up the training on time is he going and doing all the individual work that needs to be done mainly they wanted him to understand that you know. Yes, football is fun. Yes. There is the enjoyment part of it right but. If, you're going to make it at a club like I asked at a certain point you have to start treating it like a job as well, and for as much as some coaches were giving him those red flags there were also coaches who were saying, no, this kid has it. He has something and what you what you need to interpret is, yes, his personality might be. A little different. He might not fit perfectly in the box that you want, but he wants to be successful. He wants to get better and those are the coaches that recognize that in him and worked to kind of harness it, and once that happened once there was a little bit of belief behind Sergio Dust that self-motivation has has led him to a really quick sent from. The U Twenty World Cup into access first team, and then a year later into the senior national team for the US and onto Barcelona. So break this down for us. Paul Sergio grew up in the Netherlands. But he's been playing with US national teams. How exactly has that worked? So Sergio comes from a military US military family his father was a soldier who was stationed overseas. As Mother's Dutch and so he was born in Holland and and was raised there and even the Dutch national team he never got an invite to the youth national teams in Holland every time before the less round, the real real influence I didn't make you know and. Then, I was like. And he was discovered by the US soccer on accident, a US youth national team coach Dave Vandenberg, a former player, and he reached out to his club actually about another player. Another American at I ax to check in and he said as as you tend to do in scouting or journalism. Hey are there any other players I should be aware of and to coach that the actually we have another player here with American passport is name, Mr Gino, desk, and then My Dad told me like you also have American best and people saying to my dad so he can also play for the American. So when they brought through genius destined to camp, they were watching very closely not just his soccer ability but how would he mesh with the group and they said it took just one training session to see the quality that Sergio desk had. But what they were really happy with was how quickly he bonded with the Group of players and they felt like he really gained a lot from the group in connecting to his American. Identity I felt home over there a little bit because they I mean in the national team because they helped me all the time and they give me chances. This. That's the main thing I guess I would say also I think it's worth noting that the connection between us soccer at the time general manager now technical director Ernie Stewart and Sergio Desks Ernie Stewart likes or. Has a father who is in the military a Dutch mother grew up in Holland and when the US was trying to finalize Gino desks international recruitment, Ernie Stewart and Gregg Berhalter flew to Holland sat with Sergio and his father had a meal watched her play Champions League and spoke about their vision and I think it probably helped Sergio desk to see somebody who grew up very similar to him very similar background who played in multiple world cups more than one hundred caps for the US national team and Through seeing Ernie Stewart's accomplishments saw what he could accomplish with the US i. felt like my feelings were telling me like. My heart told me US wants the best option for you. It's not like. That I don't like the Netherlands. But yeah. In life you have to make decisions on. It's easy. You know. Also, we should note that that loyalty that, US, national team showed him, and that belief in the positive reinforcement he was getting with the US and being to Seventeen World Cup team u twenty. World Cup team led him to choose the United States senior national team overhaul, and which was recruiting and Windsor Genius talked about that decision. He talked about the fact that he had been a part of the teams plan for a long time. They had showed him their vision for what he was going to be in the future they believed in him and he hadn't seen anything from Holland until he broke into the first team and. So I think. There is again a sign of Sergio recognizing when people believe in him and when people give him the support to be successful.

"I'm gonna go ahead and transition us right into Gregg Berhalter first game. Obviously a very scintillating weekend for all of us. My took his first steps. So now, we go. Why you asked? Not intentionally but I had to. Okay. Greg about it. Andrew it's so in. Fifteen feet or so pretty pretty well done. It was Corey Baird esque run I would say in between the lines there. Let's talk soccer. Let's talk US already better than half the center backs. The galaxy played last ears. Three. Oh, that's a good thing. Results are good. It's nice to see a team play. Well, we're just kind of getting our first taste here. And obviously, we're Holter only had a certain amount of time to really put his stamp on this game on this team. But I think he did it in a lot of ways at least the beginnings of it till you can kind of see where he wants to go. It's been since I think late October twenty sixteen sometime twenty sixteen since we had a full-time coach that we're like this is our coach he is here he can implement ideas, we didn't know whether we agreed with the ideas at that time. But I think now we're coming to terms with the ideas, the Greg were altered has and they seem great. What did we see in this game? What did you like? I mean, a lot of the stuff that Berhalter said he was gonna show us when he was here in December. He talked about using the ball disorganized defense the opposing defense, which we saw he talked about building from the back and being possession heavy team, which we saw the US had. Sixty six percent possession. He talked about breaking the lines bypassing the ball. Splitting the fenders in playing to pockets in between the lines. We didn't see ton of that. Especially at I twenty five minutes. There was a. A toddler learning to walk aspect to have a US replaying. But I thought that got better over the course of the game walkers Berman and Michael Bradley, both excellent at that from the jump. I think everybody else struggle. Like, I said for the first twenty five minutes, we thought it was going to be pushed both fullbacks way up high. We thought it was going to be whoever the central the defensive midfielder is dropping between the centrebacks to hit those long sweeping diagonals to the overlap fullbacks. We didn't see that last night. We saw differ formation. We saw different structure different responsibilities for the fullbacks and we got used to in the crew with the crew..

"I would certainly hope not because this is a federation that has a surplus about one hundred and forty million dollars right now. So and also where you're Clinton. In set a precedent that this job could pay someone upwards of three or four million dollars a year. Now, I also think one of the dominant themes from US soccer in this whole process over the last year or two is we're going to do the opposite of European Clinton. We spent five years with your cleanse men, and we don't want to be involved in that type of thing anymore. And so often you see when someone has fired we want to have someone in direct response to that. And I think they'd be Bruce Arena's sort of like stay very stopgap measure, and they've you Gregg Berhalter was more of a longer term things. So Berhalter was going to be hired in response to Clinton's not to Bruce Arena. Okay. And so I think when you look at the word process would come up a lot. I think there was a feeling the Clinton basically had no process. He was very much, you know, kind of flying real quick from. One thing to another like, a hummingbird never really stuck with much of anything not came across pretty clear. I think during games even and one thing you can say about Gregg Berhalter is he's a process guy. He's got a plan. He has a strategy. This team will have an identity, and sometimes that may mean players that people think should be on the national team based on their club performance may not be on the national team under Gregg Berhalter, but he'll at least have a a method. And I don't think he'll be somebody who just like will try thing one day and training. And then try something completely different the next like say, for example on the eve of the Mexico game. We're going to three at the back. Right. Exactly. In terms of the personnel for the US team. You know, we talk all the time on this podcast that there is no bigger lightning. Rod name right now than Michael, Bradley. We bring his name up and Twitter goes wild. I'm sure you've seen much of the same. Is there still a place where am I know? He's part of the. Or he's going. It seems like he's going to be part of the team at least in the immediate future. Is there still a place for him among US soccer? I think in a sense right now, it it's almost like we it doesn't matter. What we think Gregg Berhalter thinks there's a place for Michael Bradley in this US men's national team. That's why Bradley has been called up for the January camp. If you read the tea leaves, and what Berhalter said on the day he was hired when he was doing all this press in New York. He talked about a mix of older guys and younger guys. And so he clearly thinks there's going to be some older guys in bringing some of the veteran experience. And I think there's a an unanswered question yet is to what that means. For Michael Bradley is he a guy who absolutely has to play. If you have him in in camp for a game guy who absolutely has to be the captain, you know, because other guys have worn the armband when Bradley hasn't been there even politic Tyler Adams says. Straight up. I wanna be the captain of the of the national team. He's like nineteen hundred which is pretty ballsy when you think about it..

"And there are a lot of things that happened that were unacceptable the weight, obviously, a big part of it. But also the idea that Berhalter was the only candidate yet for them, which I think is not in Gregg Berhalter interest. Because when you have a guy like Julian Lopa Taghi come to you and say, I'm interested in the job, and he did do this and. The response is and they haven't named coach yet the response from US Docker is we're good. We're too far along the process to even doing interview. That's crazy. That's absolutely crazy to me. Yeah. I mean, we remember we were talking about how it just felt like they had boxed themselves in with this arbitrary set of qualifications. You know has to speak English. It just talked to Martina would have been a good candidate. Yeah. Why not interview him? I mean, he was not interviewed in the end. There were three people who were actually who got four interviews. So it was Gregg Berhalter Oscar Paret and one still unnamed I think Dutch is what it sounded like from Ernie Stewart said I'd like to actually find out who this was who said bore Frank Deboer, one of the divorce could be actually I it's less likely that because what what Stewart said at the press conference was that he was notified by this person that he had a job. So this. Was last fall before divorce was hired by land. So I presume that person would be Dutch. There's very much a Dutch influence in US soccer right now. And so I'd like to find out who that person is. But it's crazy to me why you wouldn't speak have formal interviews with other people. I think any process where you're making an important higher. It's important to find out what people's ideas would be into learn more from people you if you're Ernie Stewart, you may not know very well. I I missed defied by grandma's. I'm mystified by this. What exactly is Ernie Stewart's job because that is not very clear to me. And even when he's being pressed on it by your colleague, Alexi Lalas. It was very vague middle-management speak. I'm not sure what is his rule. So I agree with you on that. I think went Alexi asked Stewart on national television. What do you do? Their response wasn't good. It was it was very mealy mouthed, blah. Nothing stuff. Yeah. And I think that's a worrying sign. On paper his job is as the general manager of the US men's national team. He is the guy in charge of hiring the national team coach. And then he's in charge like supposedly like organizational stuff involving the national team. What we do know. Specifically is he is not in charge of the US youth national teams. Okay. It sounds like even though before he said he was not in charge of hiring the Olympic coach he may actually be in charge of hiring the Olympic coach. Now. I mean, I was joking with people or any Stewart should have announced his resignation the second they hired. All my work is done. Yeah. Yeah. Now, keep in mind that this new job part of the requirement for the US coach is that he lived in Chicago and basically work out of the same office at US soccer with Ernie Stewart in so then. Then the question becomes what are those daily things going to be that Ernie Stewart is working? You you hear the collaboration? Yeah. These days. And so, but we heard a mad thing about style of play. So Ernie would dictate the style of play and the manager would fall under those parameter that that doesn't work. I mean, I think what was was. Stewart talking to people trying to figure out what is the style. Generally that we would like to play on the US men's national team. I will now hire a coach who fits that in then the coach decides the coach the coach, right? So and, but I think the way Stewart was trying to explain publicly is that helped him to winnow out the candidates if he felt like this is not this coach is associated with a style that we don't really have the players to play or wanna play was price. An issue was cost. An issue was was an I'm not not disparaging Barak. But was there? Also, a criteria are a bandwidth for how much money there will be some..

It was it was very mealy mouthed, blah. Nothing stuff. Yeah. And I think that's a worrying sign. On paper his job is as the general manager of the US men's national team. He is the guy in charge of hiring the national team coach. And then he's in charge like supposedly like organizational stuff involving the national team. What we do know. Specifically is he is not in charge of the US youth national teams. Okay. It sounds like even though before he said he was not in charge of hiring the Olympic coach he may actually be in charge of hiring the Olympic coach. Now. I mean, I was joking with people or any Stewart should have announced his resignation the second they hired. All my work is done. Yeah. Yeah. Now, keep in mind that this new job part of the requirement for the US coach is that he lived in Chicago and basically work out of the same office at US soccer with Ernie Stewart in so then. Then the question becomes what are those daily things going to be that Ernie Stewart is working? You you hear the collaboration? Yeah. These days. And so, but we heard a mad thing about style of play. So Ernie would dictate the style of play and the manager would fall under those parameter that that doesn't work. I mean, I think what was was. Stewart talking to people trying to figure out what is the style. Generally that we would like to play on the US men's national team. I will now hire a coach who fits that in then the coach decides the coach the coach, right? So and, but I think the way Stewart was trying to explain publicly is that helped him to winnow out the candidates if he felt like this is not this coach is associated with a style that we don't really have the players to play or wanna play was price. An issue was cost. An issue was was an I'm not not disparaging Barak. But was there? Also, a criteria are a bandwidth for how much money there will be some..

"berhalter" Discussed on Caught Offside

"And there are a lot of things that happened that were unacceptable the weight, obviously, a big part of it. But also the idea that Berhalter was the only candidate yet for them, which I think is not in Gregg Berhalter interest. Because when you have a guy like Julian Lopa Taghi come to you and say, I'm interested in the job, and he did do this and. The response is and they haven't named coach yet the response from US Docker is we're good. We're too far along the process to even doing interview. That's crazy. That's absolutely crazy to me. Yeah. I mean, we remember we were talking about how it just felt like they had boxed themselves in with this arbitrary set of qualifications. You know has to speak English. It just talked to Martina would have been a good candidate. Yeah. Why not interview him? I mean, he was not interviewed in the end. There were three people who were actually who got four interviews. So it was Gregg Berhalter Oscar Paret and one still unnamed I think Dutch is what it sounded like from Ernie Stewart said I'd like to actually find out who this was who said bore Frank Deboer, one of the divorce could be actually I it's less likely that because what what Stewart said at the press conference was that he was notified by this person that he had a job. So this. Was last fall before divorce was hired by land. So I presume that person would be Dutch. There's very much a Dutch influence in US soccer right now. And so I'd like to find out who that person is. But it's crazy to me why you wouldn't speak have formal interviews with other people. I think any process where you're making an important higher. It's important to find out what people's ideas would be into learn more from people you if you're Ernie Stewart, you may not know very well. I I missed defied by grandma's. I'm mystified by this. What exactly is Ernie Stewart's job because that is not very clear to me. And even when he's being pressed on it by your colleague, Alexi Lalas. It was very vague middle-management speak.
