"A lot of credit needs to go for go to him just for developing, for getting better as a soccer player. You know, it's not like he's the same player that we had in 2019 pre gold cup to what he is now. He's grown leaps and bounds. And it's been great to see. And we're always willing to give guys a chance. All right, let's take a break. Don't go too far. We're going to come back and talk a little bit Christian Pulisic and World Cup expectations. But right now, let's catch hercs. News breaking one on one with Christian Pulisic. Here it is. Christian, do me a favor. Okay, we got a lot of people down in deportes and the Spanish side that don't pronounce her name right. Say your name for me, please. Christian Pulisic. Brushed in politics. Thank you. All right. A lot of highs with Chelsea. Champions League win. But also a few lows, stretches of not starting. How would you evaluate these three years with Chelsea? I'd say I've learned a lot regardless through the highs and lows. I think that's what that's what makes up our careers. It's not always going to be those amazing moments. I think I put in a lot of work and I think I've grown a lot as a person, a lot of the players. So I think I'm really happy with the development and yeah, now I just have another good opportunity and a new season to just continue to prove myself. I'm very good Champions League run scored some very important goals around Madrid. You won the champagne final. U.S. men's national input. Obviously that was intentional. Why? Yeah, that's more credit to my dad, honestly. He was the one who was wearing and he's like, put this on and I was like, yeah, that's cool. So it kind of happened in the moment, but I mean, it's just a proud moment for I think for our country. Not a lot of Americans get to get to be in those shoes and be able to live that. And I just want to represent my country and everything I do and just continue to try to change and grow the game over here. Just you in general, do you ever sit back and just think about the impact you're having on a country? I don't, I guess I don't think about it too much, but overall that's one of my biggest goals is kind of inspiring the next generation. You know, I grew up in a country here where maybe it wasn't so attractive to want to play here and in the U.S. my goal was always to play in was always to go over and play in Europe and I just hope kids are watching and seeing what I'm doing and thinking maybe one day we can have a leak that's going to be at that level and kids that want to grow up and want to play in America and just want to play the game because they see players like myself and others the national team guys playing as a tri levels. So here in the states, go to Europe, your Buddha said Dortmund. You meet Thomas Tuchel. You now play for him here at Chelsea. What's the evolution of your relationship with Thomas Tuchel been like? Yeah, I mean, I think I started as a young 17 year old kid who just needed to earn a spot in professional soccer in the sport. Being American over in Germany, it was very tough for me at the start, but he definitely gave me my opportunity and he clearly saw something in me, so I was really grateful for that. And then we had some, you know, some good moments together. Some also tougher moments and now being at Chelsea and him coming back. I think he's grown as a coach and I've definitely grown as a player. So now it's about just trying to find that relationship and obviously like you mentioned, I've had some good moments and some tougher moments and I'm continuing to have to prove myself. And that's exactly what I'm going to do. This is more my observation, but when I look at your relationship with Thomas Tuchel, sometimes I think it's very difficult for a player to break that pattern with a coach. I mean, he saw you at such a young age, using things sometimes he still sees you as that kid. Could be. I guess you'd have to ask him. I think that's not that's not who I am anymore. I mean, I think for sure he knows I've grown a lot as a player. There's no doubt I think I have grown a lot, and that's not how I want him to view me. I want him to do me as the player I am now. So I'm just going to continue just improving, which I feel I have and just showing him why I deserve to be on the field as much as I can. Who is that player now? I mean, I think it's a player who's improved in just all aspects of his game. Physically, for one, just growing up, getting a lot smarter, maybe not using that pace and that speed like I was when I was 17. I felt like I could run forever and sprint by people. You know, growing up a little bit and having to understand with injuries and things, taking care of my body better. And I think using my brain a lot more in different situations throughout the game and just becoming more clinical and just being a good teammate, really. Well, you're on a world class team right now. Let's talk about this world class team. Lots of chatter. All right, Cristiano Ronaldo, who's coming in who's going now? Raheem Sterling's in. Talk to me about the quality of transfer he is, and maybe how that impacts you in your vying for more time. I mean, yeah, great quality and Raheem, so we're really excited about it. I mean, the beautiful thing about being at a club like this is the competition every single day. And we all thrive competing with each other in training and just getting to play with each other. It's just another great addition to the team. And it doesn't change a whole lot. I'm still going to have to play hard and earn my position, just like I did before. Nothing crazy has changed. This is Chelsea. This is what this is what you sign up for. And this is the kind of club it is with the caliber players that we have. Timing is very important. It's a World Cup year, the World Cup is in November. How much does that impact your decision to stay to go to in what the future will hold for you? I don't know if it's just the World Cup, but it's definitely you want to be in a position that you're comfortable with and you want to be, you know, put yourself in a good position to be in your best form when that time does come because the World Cup is obviously is everything. It is for our country. It is for the world. And you want to be in a good position where you're playing and getting regular minutes and at the top of your game when that time comes. So it does impact decisions. Speaking about impact, talk to me about the new American ownership at Chelsea, what type of impact that's had on you guys already and you think we'll have on the team. I think they've come in and done a really good job and the way that they've spoken with the players and staff and just wanting to use that same Chelsea mentality that winning mentality but also kind of bringing their American ways, some of their business ways and how they bring in and kind of incorporate that into this team. And I mean, on the day to day and then the way we train and play, it doesn't change a whole lot, but I think they've done a great job so far. And yeah, I think the guys are really enjoying it thus far. Let's stay on Americans in the Premier League. Jesse marsh to Leeds. He heads over to Leeds. And immediately there's this narrative of Ted Lasso.

"Wanted to take this game as far as I can, so to be able to represent a club like arsenal is a dream come true. So from the national team perspective, obviously the player is going to do what's best for his career. How do you balance that? You want guys at the highest level, but you need them playing minutes, right? You know, I would always recommend to do what Matt did in this case. You know, he's a guy that was playing at heartfield college, right? Where did he go to school? I think it was hard. Yeah, I mean, yeah. But the point is, yes. Good Catholic Jersey. It's in Connecticut. Sorry, my bad. No, it's in Connecticut. The school that he went to. Yeah, therapy. It is in Canada. It's not in Jersey. Yeah. But the point is, is that, you know, 6 years ago, he's playing a Fairfield college. And now he has the opportunity to go to arsenal. You don't ever turn that down regardless of when at World Cup. You know, this is like, you know, I've talked to Bruce about. This is a dream story, man. You can't write stories like this. It's such an amazing story. I understand that, but it's still blows my mind that a player is talking about, I'm not thinking about the World Cup. I'm thinking about my career because usually the other way around, it's like I need to be careful of what I do because this is a World Cup year and this is a World Cup. It's the Pinnacle for any footballer. So that blows my mind on that just in general when we're talking about man Turner. This is the right move for you, because Ricardo peppy, we could throw out another example, World Cup year. He hasn't been doing so well. So this could be a move going to osberg that potentially jeopardizes his World Cup status. Yeah. And that's a decision that players are going to have to live with. But for Matt, I think this is a dream move. I think it's something that is a fairytale. You know, that he's all of a sudden, you know, at arsenal, one of the great clubs in English soccer, you know, from 6 years ago playing it at Fairfield college. I don't think Matt Turner fits into this necessarily but you also mentioned this on the gab in Jules podcast and that was that there's some players because we see this mass exodus of players to Europe and everybody gets very excited. There are some players that can make that jump too early. How does that then impact you as the national team coach? Yeah, and see this is much more interesting conversation to me because and what we've been doing for the last 15 years. Well, because Matt Turner performed best goalkeeper in MLS. He won the support shield with New England. He did everything he could do. He was crushing it in MLS. He was ready to move on. Right, get a national team looks. Exactly. Now the issue becomes when we have younger players that are moving to moving out of MLS when they haven't been dominant in Major League Soccer. Like a Brian Reynolds for example. That's the example you gave, yeah. That's a great George bellows. I can give another D.C. guy Kevin Perez felt like that. We just got to see him, and then he was gone. Right. And what happens is that then they don't get enough playing time. They may not make it there. I'm always a big fan of you crush the level where you're at and then you keep going. And then you go to the next level and you always find a level that you can play and you can build up your performance. Well, we see this example a lot with the Mexican players and the Mexican media in particular where they're saying like there's a process. There's a process. There's a cycle to this much. Fulfill this process. But there's the other side of that coin, many say, let them fulfill it somewhere else. So let them have better training. Let them have better competition. He will be better for it for being in that environment. How are you going to get on the field though? That has to be part of the equation. I agree with what you're saying until the point where where are they going to get game time? Because I don't believe it's good for a player to go to Europe and train for two years. I really don't. Personally, the decision I made was to go play in the second division of Holland. And I played every week. And then I went to the first division. And then I went to England, and I went to there's a progression that needs to take place, and that's part of it, game time. Okay. I think I may be the first person to actually bring this up, but John Brooks. Can we talk, John Brooks? It feels like every time there's a call up every time there's a roster drop, John Brooks is in on it, and you're getting asked. Where's John Brooks? He happens to be one of the most experienced players in the pool. I believe him and Deandre yedlin, the only two that actually played in a World Cup in this current pool. You said at first that you wanted to see certain things from John Brooks for him to come back to the national team. And then you don't call him up because he said, I know what he's about. I want to see other guys. So where are we with John Brooks? You can understand maybe the frustration of the fans with maybe any consistency or two in your comments. You know, the way I see it in the way we've been communicating, you know, me and John have had a number of conversations along the way. You know, he was in the September camp, had to withdraw from the October camp because of injury. I called him before the November camp. I said, John listen, you know, I'm a here are some things that are lacking your game that I don't see fit our game model. And then we need to address. And we move on. And we went to January and we got through that window. We entered the crucial window in March, and it wasn't time to bring him back, in my opinion. And now we go into these games in the summer where we wanted to take a look at a guy like cam Carter Vickers. We wanted to take a look at a guy like Eric Palmer Brown because John has the body of work that we've seen. So to me, it's a question of, let's see where John ends up. Let's see what

"Midfielders in different games. I mean, I think that one of the key when you're looking at lineups throughout the World Cup, there's very few teams that play the same Levin, 11 every game, just doesn't happen. Maybe not the same 11 every game, but you get at least somewhat of the same spine every game or the same main characters every game. And I go back to a game that I saw you guys play, you ended up losing, it was the gold Cup final 2019, the first, I would say 40 minutes of that game, you guys should have been up three one. Josie out the door, playing as a 9. He was a big physical director, combined very well, Christian get in behind polio, and behind. I remember that game vividly. Yeah. That's not the way football is played. You miss your chances. It can come back to bite you and that's what happened, but you had your chances, but you had a 9 who knew how to combine you had a 9 who knew what you were looking for. Do you feel you have that right now, regardless of who plays? Yeah, I think that's a perfect world type of scenario, right? And Josie is going to be a Hall of Famer. He's a really good striker in the history of U.S. soccer. And do we have a guy at his level right now? No. But do we have guys that have potential to keep climbing the ranks and being very good soccer players? Yes. And we're going to have to see, again, you know, I'm not getting hung up on, you know, if you talk about the spine, I'm not getting hung up on we have to start the same four guys. I'm not getting hung up on that because I know the guys don't get hung up on that. We try to put the best players on the field that can perform on the day. And that's what we're looking for. What about goalie? That's kind of the other one that fans are focused on. The other position battle that seems very much up in the air right now as we head to the World Cup or four months out and where are you at with that? Yeah, so it's also a similar situation. We have guys that we know are capable and Zach Stefan, Matt Turner, Ethan horvath, Sean Johnson, our four guys that have been around the program, proved they're capable of playing. And again, it's just for us about watching their minutes watching their form watching who we who we think has the best command of the defense, who could who could perform the tasks of the profile that we have for goalkeeper. And there's a lot that goes into it. Casey and I have gone back and forth. On this subject, I don't think goalkeepers are real humans, so I don't think they actually need to play games, you know? They're in goal, you can mimic that in a training session. What side of the fence are you want? The goalkeeper has to play. Is that what you're thinking? Again, and I know you guys are thinking, I'm going to think I'm hedging here. But there's no one way to solve it. And you know, I've talked to Casey about this and, you know, he doesn't think a goal would needs to play. And it helps if a goal is playing the helps of the goal is playing at the highest level, but I don't think there's any absolute certainties in what's happening here. I think that we want our guys to be playing, no question about it. We want them to be playing at the highest level. No question about it. And if they're not, we have to deal with it. And we

"Say form, is that because I hear form and I think striker, that means just goals. Right. Is there more to it? Well, I mean, you look at the chances they're getting. Are they getting good quality chances? Are they fit? Are they able to run for 90 minutes and do the defensive? We're talked about us being oppressing team. Can they do that part of the game as well? So there's a number of criteria we're looking at how well did they fit into the group? I mean, there's a number of things we're looking at to determine who will play. Peppy Ferreira, those are the two guys that we've seen a lot of. They're very different. How would picking one or the other maybe impact what it is that you guys do? Or maybe I misspoke, maybe they're not that different. I mean, I think they're similar. I think peppy's is ability in the penalty box is really good for a young player's ability to get shots off really quickly. It is a good quality. Good running behind the line, dynamic player. Jesus unbelievable understanding of the game of soccer also has worked on runs behind the back line now. I think in the penalty box is where he needs to keep working and I know in Dallas or they're working hard with him. So, you know, we'll see. You mentioned a physical presence. Who are we talking about? So there's a number of guys. We have Jordan Sebastian who just went to Jordan who just went to union Berlin. He could be an option and we know just sergeant is a physical striker. Zardis has proven to be give teams a difficult time. Even Ricardo is a guy that, you know, when you want him to be physical, can do it. So there are a number of number of players. Do you think we could see multiple 9s at the World Cup? Because we kind of keep coming back to this, oh, who's done 9. Do you need a the 9? Is that what's best for this team? You know, I think in any position you want options. You want alternatives, right? So I mean, I could see us playing different number 9s in different games. I can see it's playing different midfielders in different games. I mean, I think that one of the key when you're looking at lineups throughout the World Cup, there's very few teams that play the same Levin, 11 every game, just doesn't happen. Maybe

"Football. And underway here on ESPN+ and on this very special edition of the show coming to you from the NBA today studios. We are joined by the master of the balance pass and the manager of the U.S. men's national team, Greg berhalter. Welcome to the program. Great to have you. Thanks for having me, guys. If you like those, you like that compilation. Some of your best work. You've seen you've seen the, I guess, attention these passes have gotten online, right? I heard the videos that the walkie videos. They're amazing. He's got a great tone in his voice and he's a funny guy. All in the delivery, very deadpan. Look, a little bit later on. We've got hercs one on one. News making one on one with Christian Pulisic, but we'll get to that later in the show. First off, Greg. What brings you to LA? So I'm here for the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. Yeah, you baseball guy. I am a baseball guy. You know my godfather and cousin was calling your strem ski from the Red Sox, his numbers retired. And his grandson's playing now for the Giants and it's in our family. How are you going to ask if he's a baseball guy? You've heard him sing at Wrigley Field. Oh, it did here. I did hear him sing. I did hear him sing. But the thing he doesn't necessarily make you a baseball guy. We do have a baseball guy right here. You were at the office. I was just at the home run Derby. Yeah, they pulled me out, gotta come to the big gun. We only do this studio for the big shows. This is the only the third time we've ever done it, so let's make it a good one. Let's make it a good one. So let's start, I guess. I think the most important moment, right? Which is when you clinch the ticket to Qatar. But I don't really know when that was for you. Like, when did you feel the sense of relief? Was it after the Panama route where mathematically you're pretty much there? Or is it after everything's said and done in Costa Rica? Well, I think as a coach, you have to expect the worst. So really, there's no joy. It wasn't until the final whistle in Costa Rica at halftime when it was zero zero. We were pretty much there. But you had 45 minutes to play still. And when the whistle blew, we even though we lost the game, we're in the World Cup. And great

"What these guys go to now. And I just think it's different, right? That's what it is. It's just different. And to compare them, you know, okay, we had some things in our generation that were difficult and stuff. And our road maybe was more difficult, but the amount of pressure these guys are under nowadays, it's such a young age. We know nothing about that. You know, when I think about, you know, 18 year olds, 19 year olds, I was in college in 18 at 18. Live in a college life, you know? These guys are under tremendous amount of pressure. There's a tremendous amount of fixtures. I think it's a lot harder nowadays. And the game's got a much better nowadays. So I think it's, I think it's nostalgia that's playing the role there. This is your first time coaching a national team. You and I have talked about this before, but it's a very different rhythm from coaching a club team where you see the players every day. You've got continuous feedback, now they're at arm's length, and then when you get them for international breaks or whatever, everything is concentrated. Yeah, and that was the biggest learning curve right there when I took the job. You know, I was really intent on building a strong culture of the team. And people say, oh, it's not a club team. You can't build that. I disagree with that. I still think you could have a strong culture with the national team. But from a playing style standpoint, it is getting back to basics, keeping everything really simple, because you have no time to train. And that's been the biggest learning thing for me since I took the job. And that's been a great process. How do you fix that? How do you do that? I think, you know, especially with COVID and these condensed windows and three games and 7 days. I don't think there's much to be fixed in terms of saying, okay, we're going to have more training time. But in general, it's doing workout, it's doing more work outside of camp. So it is doing videos with the guys from their games, what they're doing with their clubs, kind of integrating into what we're doing with our club say, for example, Eric Palmer Brown with twice playing three in the back. We say, okay, we have this idea we're going to build with three year plan in the middle. These are the passes that you're already making with your club that we can see you making with us also. So kind of priming them when they come into camp. Second thing, you know, it's not my job, but I think there should be some look at the calendar from FIFA and say, you know, how we scheduling games. What are we doing? Is there enough time for both? Because everything got jammed up in these last couple of years, for sure. And it made it really difficult to sustain. And the players are who I feel bad for the most is because these guys are, they're burning at both ends. You know, they're going with their club three times a week, then they come to the national team and do the same thing. And it's tough. It's really challenging. You know when you took the job, was there part of you, did you have to think much about it? Did you hear no brainer for you in the sense that, yeah, this is amazing. I mean, I don't know how you realize what a great generation you're going to have and work with and all the optimism and the great momentum and the dynamic and everything. What part of you thinking this is a high pressure job, this is a pressure because you also competing with other U.S. sports, not just not just other soccer countries. It was a very simple choice. My heart was always telling me to take it. As being an ex national team player, you get this opportunity. And it's hard to turn it down. I have a lot of love for the national team. Played for the national team for a long time. And seeing where the national team program was, I thought there was an opportunity. You know, when I made the initial started making the initial depth charts and I'm looking at the players, it was tough in the beginning, man. It was tough to say, okay, how are we going to how are we going to get out of this? This is the player pool. No, really. Because you're talking about 2018 at the time. You know, I'm interviewing for the job in 2018. And you know, you have guys, you know, Georgia was about 15 years old at the time. 16 years old, you know? He was in a depth chart, but it was like, asked, you know, hopefully he keeps progressing. It was that type of stuff. You know, Tyler Adams, you know, Christian was already broken through. But there was a lot of guys that you could say, okay, these guys are full established great young great players. So you had to be patient and part of it was having belief that these guys are going to develop into the players we think they're going to be. And then you start thinking about excitement. That's the next level. They say, okay, this group can really do something. We could have a quality of player that we haven't had yet in America. You said you've had obviously a long history.

"The ugly. And this might be me just being mean hurt. But I do think this is ugly. And that's the fact that Major League Soccer's playing these games during an international break. We are at the crunch time of the season. Huge games for playoff implications. And you're playing these games without the leagues in theory. Biggest stars. Is this the way to do business? Not for your fans. It's a huge disk justice disservice to your players. I mean, who pays attention to these games, during a FIFA picture date in a serious proper footballing culture, nobody. This is why this is why U.S. soccer Major League Soccer should try at least aligning itself in a way where these games don't happen. I understand why they're happening now. I understand that they prioritize tournaments like CCL, like you and it's got like least cup. These business ventures that they think they need to operate, but there's going to come a time where there will be no place for games during FIFA fixture date windows. And it is ugly. It's ugly for the fans. It took me for the players who have to participate. And it's also ugly for some of these national team players who have to go and leave their clubs because they'd like to be involved in this postseason. I guess destiny talk as well. I mean, I just look at it from a coach's standpoint. You're supposed to make the playoffs and these games are decisive. Like, we know how close the conference standings are and what a win can mean in terms of finishing, you know, somewhere between 9th and 5th. Like that's what we're playing for right now at this point of the season. You're a coach and you don't have your biggest tools at your disposal. Come on. I mean, for the fans it's not a complete product for the coaches. It's not a complete product. You know, if we're gonna call into validity in the question of the validity of anything, it's not Phil Neville complaining. It's these games and how they impact the playoff race. We got what?

"Help. I want the stats on how many touches he had in this past through games. I won your stats on how many great passes he gave on those two games specifically in the game against Honduras. If Chucky losano would have been a clinical finisher, then this conversation is different. And number three raul Jimenez has been there before. He knows what a game like that's gonna look like. And Mexico nits him. It would be very hard for someone like Rochelle from his Modi without that kind of experience to start the game at El Salvador and then trying to give a good game. I think those three reasons are heavy enough for data martino to start rawal Jimenez. Yeah, I'm gonna get myself in trouble here, but I would start rogelio funes mori and I will tell you why, and I know Seb is gonna jump all over this, but sometimes you need to protect the football and you protect the player from himself. He almost experienced a near death incident about a year ago. He hasn't been playing a regularly as of late. And also has a coupled in these transatlantic flights from England over to this side of the world to play 90 minutes October 2nd with wolves. 90 minutes, October 7th without 360 seven minutes last night and to start another one. You're asking him he's already played 247 minutes at a 2.7. You're asking him to go four starts in 11 days, a lot of travel, different conditions. I think sometimes we need to protect the players from themselves, and I will in this instance with these circumstances of just getting back into the swinging things, I need maybe needs that protection from himself. Yeah, I don't know about that, man. Come on. I mean, he's been playing every week for wolves. He's good to be called in. That's 11 days. And he just started playing with just how we just had a huge conversation. I just said, I'm gonna get myself in trouble and step is gonna jump all over this. And you win. I literally did. But I think there are circumstances. I agree with that. Really quick. I agree with my mouse saying. He's a playmaker and if I would have been more refined in his finishing, it would be minus all day, and you don't have what he doesn't even discuss it, but I think right now you need to protect them. Now, I wanted to add one more thing to what just said. The original plan of the Mexican national team was for all humans and tricky to sign up to play a 180 minutes at his steel sticker and then traveled back to join your teams for the same reasons that he just said. I agree with that. But the fact that they only tie against Canada, then in Tata Martinez head is we need to win against Salvador to have a more I don't want to relax, but at least an easier path for the rest of the way. So and if you're actually make raul travel to El Salvador, then you have to start him. Yep. You're not gonna make him take that travel just to sit him on the bench. It's strange that a coach would want to win the game in front of him. All right, let's leave the forwards there for now. Let's move to midfield because one of the big one of the thing not big, but kind of surprise decisions is south down to the back gets into the lineup in this match. Of course he replaces Andres guardado. Mauricio, how did you think Cordoba played beyond the goal? And did you're in another start, which we know of course would probably.

"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.

"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..

"I i guess you could evaluate performance but i think you know giving them give them the golden gloves and basically like call a good like i think we know how played so what now for matt turner is this in and we said on the last show. Charlie is a time to double down. Do you think this is it. Is he the starter. Come september man. Oh man i one thing that i really dislike is that we kinda just skip over. Ethan horvath i mean. He came in as a substitute for zach. Stephan in that nation's league final saved a pen at another big safe. And i had to clean sheet against costa rica in the following game. We don't give him any credit he's he's also in the mix as a starter because he's he's proven any made a move because he needed to make the move to play so he's starting every week at nottingham force in putting in performances than is named would certainly be in the equation. I don't envy gregg berhalter that you have three phenomenal keepers succumb in all three are capable of winning you games and concha calf but you always go at the hot hand. In in every instance the player who's playing consistently the player playing the best. That's always how the national team has been for the most part. It's we want guys who are obviously the considered the best but are playing every week weaken and week out and doing well and matt turner is doing that. So i think in that instance after tonight's performance against the mexican eighteen he volts himself to number. One sorry i just 'cause we're we're gonna have to put this in a graphics. I just wanna make sure that languages. Yeah so what. Charlie davies is saying is the guy who plays for pep guardiola at manchester city in the united kingdom otherwise known as england primarily is not the starter over the guy who plays for the new england revolution matinee. That is correct unless we see so we see we see. Something unforeseen with manchester city and edison goes down injured or something. Zack stephanie. And he's playing bar-. Barring that situation matt turner should be starting. Come world cup qualifiers. Because he's going to be informed should we should we victory lap for doyle or should we let him do that when he gets back from vegas Just in mexico probably like talking the year off of some poor bartender being told everybody like three and a half years ago. I was like matt turner. Have you seen this underlying numbers. His goals expected goals. It's at the top of the league like nobody was talking about this. But i'm here to tell you that he can be the starter for the national team and bartenders probably. Yeah yeah shut up man. Here's some more cuban you if you are.

"Not only into world cup qualifying ready in going to qualify for the twenty to twenty two world cup but also for for twenty twenty six and beyond. Because we're producing players. major league. Soccer is producing players players young players going over to europe in getting playing time and developing. So there's a good mix within this group and they're all led by gregg berhalter who i think a lot of people that not enough. We need a bigger name for we need. We have bigger than even talked to do. They call him even bigger than that and look what he's done built a culture because you have a national team coach that went through the process and understands what a team means a an american team the chemistry playing that two thousand two world cup being a part of that squad when they went so far you bring that now back full circle as a coach. Redeveloping that same feeling and it showing. It is clearly showing and than we're probably going to talk a lot about gregg berhalter. I did my stock up stock down out of this camp. And i put him top of stock up but he didn't even need it. The nation's league win was enough that that was his goal. This summer was the winning trophy and to show that he could be a winner and show. That seemed could win. It already done that but some of the little points with this group. We've talked a lot about calendar. Costs working his way. Back in and gregg berhalter being able to keep him connected. Keep him motivated. Looking eric williamson. You literally lost his spot in this camp and he was still able to keep him motivating connected to the group he comes on and wins the game in the semifinals off the bench in one role and then he gets pulled into a final and placed is best ever game obviously at international level. Because it's like a second one in a huge moment where he's connected. He's winning tackles. he's doing the things he does. Well turning upfield when he gets opportunities but it just shows you george bello getting his second appearance and the confidence at the coaching staff has flowing over to him on the field. Matthew hoppy a guy who was off the radar six months ago and gives you one hundred eighteen minutes and maybe it was the best player on the field. All of that comes down to what we're talking about. Which is the faith culture. What they've built and and you.

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

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.
