So I finally started reading this, but could only make it half way through. The author just seems to be in denial about the lack of quality in the US talent pool prior to the current youths. And way too happy to blame as much on Klinsmann as he can while refusing to accept what a colossal failure it is for the US to ever even come close to failing to qualify from concacaf. Klinsi failed miserably because he isn't much of a coach, but the depth of the USMNT's failure is far deeper than the author tries to make it seem, and a lot more has to change than this article is implying for the US to ever be any more than what they have been...a middling team that can bunker their way into the knockouts with some luck and maybe even steal a game. In fact, some of those quotes in that article reveal much deeper problems with the mindset of some of the bad players who have played for the USMNT. Goodson's quotes in particular are absolutely damning of how entitled & clueless some of them could be. Hopefully, the people in charge of US soccer have slightly higher standards with this next generation than the mediocrity that US soccer has traditionally embraced.
