CONCACAF Cup: Klinsmann ‘crisis’ becomes unavoidable if US can’t beat Mexico

Here is the very definition of irony: Jurgen Klinsmann and Landon Donovan share a common piece of real estate in domestic soccer. Donovan once stood as American soccer’s most divisive figure. He was either a blue ribbon talent who faithfully served his country’s World Cup efforts for more a decade while propping up the cause for a fledgling MLS, or he was a soft underachiever...

CONCACAF Cup: Jurgen Klinsmann vs. Tuca Ferretti is a battle between 2 different coaching beliefs

The major qualm with Jurgen Klinsmann when he was hired by the United States became embodied in Philipp Lahm’s autobiography, where the Bayern legend and former German international portrayed Joachim Loew as the real tactical mind behind the 2006 Nationalmannschaft. Klinsmann dwelled on fitness, never talked about tactics, and left the players to figure out how they would play...

CONCACAF Cup: Out-of-form defenders complicate decisions in Klinsmann’s back four

I read somewhere on one of the internet’s dependables that Mexico’s back line is looking pleasantly settled ahead of this weekend’s Rose Bowl biggie. Must be nice. The United States’ back line is … well … let’s go with “ongoing work in progress.” Settled? If it were any “less settled” it would be a fidgety 5-year-old on a sugar high. In 16 matches of 2015...

Landon Donovan: Klinsmann must go if USA loses to Mexico

Landon Donovan isn’t afraid to apply what he knows about ruthlessness in soccer to Jurgen Klinsmann. Donovan said in an interview with ESPNFC on Tuesday Jurgen Klinsmann should leave his post as head coach of the U.S. men’s national soccer team if it loses to Mexico in the CONCACAF Cup on Saturday. Donovan arrived at the conclusion by applying the same logic about the importance...

The USMNT, Jurgen Klinsmann, and the future of U.S. Soccer.

The U.S. Men’s National Team has a problem. Beyond the problems we’ve always faced as a team; lack of depth, relatively weak in the midfield, and inconsistent scoring, we’re currently facing a Jurgen Klinsmann problem. I was a huge doubter of the guy in the beginning of his tenure as national team coach. His team selection was highly questionable but he stuck to it and eventually...

Jurgen Klinsmann picks Brad Guzan over Tim Howard as USMNT starting goalkeeper

Tim Howard won’t walk back into the United States men’s national soccer team’s goal. He must displace incumbent starter Brad Guzan. U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann on Wednesday said Guzan will remain the starting goalkeeper for now, despite Howard’s return to international duty. Guzan likely will see the bulk of the action in Team USA’s upcoming exhibition games against...

Klinsmann’s gamble backfires, US falls to Jamaica at Gold Cup

Jurgen Klismann vowed the United States men’s national soccer team would build its way through the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup and peak at the right time. Some Team USA believers are feeling downright betrayed right about now. The U.S. fell to Jamaica 2-1 on Wednesday at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Ga., in the Gold Cup semifinal. On its own, Team USA’s loss represents one of those...
