Jurgen Klinsmann

The Mass Return Of USMNT Players To MLS Was A Catastrophic Mistake

In the wake of the USMNT’s utterly pathetic defeat to Trinidad and Tobago and subsequent bouncing from the World Cup, perhaps no man on the planet has greater license to say “I told you so” than former head coach Jurgen Klinsmann. That’s not to say that Klinsmann shouldn’t have been fired or that he would’ve steered the U.S. to the World Cup, it’s just to say that he’s ultimately been vindicated in his criticisms of Major League Soccer and American player mentality.

The 8 Worst Divers In The History Of Soccer

In the sport of soccer, there isn’t anything worse than a diver, a flopper or a simulator, whichever derogatory term you prefer. Any half-decent spectator is appalled by the sight of these adults rolling around and screaming in agony when nobody even touched them.

Michael Bradley And Jermaine Jones Combined To Set US Soccer Back 10 Years

In a little over a year, the United States has witnessed some truly awful results under the leadership of Jurgen Klinsmann, but the back-to-back defeats to Jamaica and Panama to end a poor 2015 Gold Cup, defeat to Mexico at the 2015 CONCACAF Cup and historic 2-0 loss to Guatemala in the fourth round of World Cup qualifying all pale in comparison to Tuesday night’s capitulation in San Jose, Costa Rica.
