    Berhalter did the bare minimum of what was expected. Squeaked through qualifying t-3 position, out of a group we were expected to get out of. Not saying everything he did was bad, but, we need to find the best coach we can, preferably sooner then later

    • MattMexor2
      MattMexor2 5 months ago +5

      Definitely. A national team coach should only stay more than one cycle if he performs extraordinarily or apparently has something to give that no one else available could give. Berhalter doesn't have those things. He had his ups and downs. He showed some things. But he failed to change the way the world views American soccer. Onwards and upwards.

      StevenyGabby Perez 5 months ago +4

      Unfortunately he isn't at the level we need to win. People talk about team selection but it was way beyond that. Louis van Gaal was toying with Berhalter. The sad part is Berhalter didn't even see it coming. He got our boys to where they need to be but going forward he has nothing more to offer them.

    USMNT will thrive with a champions league level coach for the 2026 World Cup. Our tactics and ability to influence the game in real time and adjust to our opponent with subs was very poor under under Greg.
    We need a consistent goal scoring #9 and a center back pairing thats comfortable on the ball under pressure. Next is just gaining experience playing friendlies vs top level competition. Very proud of what USMNT has accomplished, #Only Forward!

      We need to hire a foreign manager. I know it hurts the US pride but In order to get the best out of our very talented players we absolutely must hire a foreign manager who knows his head from his ass unlike berhaulter. If we hire another MLS garbage man then we’re finished.

    USSF must fire Gregg asap no more excuses. He makes bad mistakes like putting bad players on the roster or not having right adjustments. He chooses crap players 😠 and never fixes his mistakes.

    It was clear that they had better players and system, but especially clear they had a better manager. Gio proved he should’ve started that game and play much more in this World Cup. In what world do you start an MLS player over a player starting in a top-tier league in Europe. Only in Gregg’s

  • muralles6
    muralles6 5 months ago +3

    I keep hearing we made lots of progress this world cup, which comparing to previous world cup (didn't qualify) then 100%. In regards to competing in the world cup, we are exactly where we left off 2014 cycle, round of 16. That is our level and has been, so we have stayed in the same boat.
    To get next level, we need a next level coach. Staying within MLS or Americans, we will stay in the same spot (no disrespect, we're in the right direction). I hope we can get someone with a good national team track record

  • Ron Ridenour
    Ron Ridenour 5 months ago +4

    As to getting top teams to play us it seems like it should be easy. Many of them will want a chance to ply in the us for $ and a chance to play in the country where the next World Cup will be played.

    Holland coach called him out for not tactically not adjusting to their form. In reality its nothing new if you have been watching the us team. He is unable to make real-time decisions to adjust the flow of the game. US played better than I expected

    You guys have definitely got a lot of top talents who will go to the very top individually.
    But to win the 2026 WC the issue are too big the talented lads are all very similar technical players.
    There’s no CBs, GK & no out & out 6/9. Which is why the build up is great but it breaks down in the final third without the 9 & they get countered very easily without the 6 cutting passing lanes & breaking up the play.
    The funny part is with the athletes the US produces those are positions & player profiles you’d expect to have in abundance but I supposed they all go the NBA/NFL route.

      StevenyGabby Perez 5 months ago +2

      Yes Reyna should have started especially if he was going with a false 9. I don't think any tram selection would have changed the out come. The only way we win that game is if we could swap managers.

    We need to move on from Gregg, but people kind of over rate this group of players. Some guys are at tops clubs, but we don't have anyone putting up 8-10 goals consistently in a top 5 league. We're just not there yet when it comes to the final third.

  • Ron Ridenour
    Ron Ridenour 5 months ago +1

    The main reason we should hire a new coach now is that as soon as there are a string of bad results then berhalter will be fired anyway. It’s better to start fresh and give the new coach the full cycle.

    underrated shout but what about argentine ricardo gareca. he took peru to the world cup and a copa america final in his tenure, while coaching arguably one of the worst teams on paper. obviously language might be an issue, but bielsa did fine at leeds. and i think we could lure him in with the prospect of being in us.

  • Dirk S
    Dirk S 5 months ago +1

    We do need an upgrade in coach. The Dutch coach Van Gaal said they were able to make a tactical plan to play against the US based on the fact that the US always plays the same system. That the US was not able to adapt and that is what probably allowed them (the Netherlands) to win. We need a coach that can have different tactics based on the opponents and that can make adjustments if something is not working. That is not GGG.

  • Hollow4O1
    Hollow4O1 5 months ago +1

    Nations League, Gold Cup, and U-20 World Cup in 2023 should be used with a mix of A&B squad eligible players and slowly start to integrate our u-20 players into tournaments like the nations league and gold cup. 2024 copa America same thing, use it to test a 75% full roster but integrate new players at the same time. 2025 gold cup start to build the roster for 2026 WC and play as many friendlies as possible.

  • NiteEy3
    NiteEy3 5 months ago +3

    It would help the usmnt team to set up friendlies with European teams instead of Caribbean island teams. Its the only way. You play against the best and if you lose you learn from it. Dont play lower small teams and win and think you can win a world cup

      @Lower Centenary America (South to North America) is a big continent, too big. South America's schedule is kinda rough and going to travel to USA, Mexico or Canada and then get a flight back to Brazil, Argentina or Colombia would tiresome. And vice-versa for CONCACAF teams.
      A friendly off season tournament would be great.

    USMNT needs a European coach that is determine to win at any cost and teach them the next level of play especially in the attack! For me one name is in my mind Bielsa The Argentinian Coach, he has a very strict reputation and gets the job done!

    • Kevin Bristrain
      Kevin Bristrain 5 months ago

      @Matthew Reynolds Jesse March can't even cut it, he has no management national team experience! And he's inconsistent in winning, Leeds is struggling under him if they were at least in the top 5 of the primier league we can talk! Bring him in is like going to scare one! In that case I rather have Greg behalter to be in charge, we need a coach who can bring the fully potential of the USA front attack! So please don't joke like that!

    Look the job Berhalter was hired to do is done. He steadied the ship, got the program back on some semblance of a track, but his failings are just very visibly apparent right now. Ferreira being chosen over almost anyone else, throwing on Zim and Shaq at the end of a very tight game where we do not want to be sitting back, and also his inability to say "Okay yeah that was my fault."
    I think we're in a similar situation as England, right? Southgate helped right that ship but now, even though they're advancing, his faults are readily apparent.
    Neither of these guys were meant to be the long-term solution, they were not expected to be a Joachim Lowe. It's time to move on to someone who can continue pushing the ship along now.

  • wagfinpis
    wagfinpis 5 months ago

    too many neutered puppies that don't feel when to pull the trigger in the final third. multiple missed opportunities to attack the final 3rd too.
    game plans are fine and all up to a point, but you need smell the opportunities and go for it, not switch the switch in your brain from attack and defend.
    Greg's work was a success to get to the round of 16, but after that they should have just gone home if they are going to play like that.

    For all those advocating keeping Gregg for a 2nd Cycle, a bit of US soccer history for you. No-one who's been given a 2nd cycle did as well in their 2nd go than they did in their first.
    Arena - 2002 into round of 8. 2006 failed to get out of Group
    Bradley - 2010 into round of 16. Fired before 2014.
    JK - 2014 into round of 16. Fired 2 games into the Hex for 2018. Arena - failed to qualify in 2018.
    Gregg - 2022 into round of 16. 2026....SHOULD NOT BE THE COACH.

  • Edward Bartel
    Edward Bartel 5 months ago

    What the hell does Charlie mean when he said "no one gave them a chance???" Pretty much everyone had the US going through and then matching Holland in the knockouts and losing. USMNT did what everyone predicted, no more, no less. Was Berhalter outcoached in that last game? Yes. But the quality was shown between the two squads. Did Gio show that he deserved to start or get more minutes? I'm not so sure - he certainly didn't set the field afire in that game.
    The US still has work to do. In 4 years, Pefok or Sargeant will be viable #9s, we'll have better central defending options (though Ream played much better than expected) and our young midfield and wingers will be a lot more seasoned. Things are looking up for '26, but anyone saying they can win it has been smoking too much in their downtime.

    Please NO to Roberto Martinez. His teams make 2000 passes a game - all going sideways, not great at in-game adjustments, has no concept of defense, and doesn't like to train for corner kicks - he thinks those are cheap ways to score. Just...no.

  • Ian Doll
    Ian Doll 5 months ago

    300m kid pool, playing to win is only acceptable outcome. - as long as current US Fed members selecting, they'll never select another outsider. Martinez would be great but not happening. Should Greg go - yes, one win in 4 matches, poorly coached the other 3. As Charlie said, play to win! Greg played to protect his reputation and not sure that worked even. Improve the search and development process and you'll have better outcomes.

    Sorry. I think Charlie maybe a little off with the goal being to win. This core team is not and will not be good enough to win in 3.5 years. It just ain’t happening. There is not enough talent to compete with the Brazil’s, Argentinas, etc. Remember, it isn’t enough to compete once, like we did against England. We need to win against at least 3 world class teams to win and we don’t have enough of the players to do so. It is also unlikely that we will have that in the next cycle.

      @ReyMisterio22 No, relatively decent one. it's true, Pep has only managed top rated clubs with large bank accounts.

Can Pep advance the USMNT past Rd 16 where the sport of soccer isn't seen as a secular religion?

    I can sum up in one word how the world saw US soccer before Berhalter: naive
    Coincidentally that's the word that the world describes us as now.
    It's simple. He failed at what he promised.

    • LandInbetween
      LandInbetween 5 months ago

      What did he promise?
      But yes, naive would be the right word for the USMNT given they were the second youngest squad in the WC.

    • Maudal Musical Machines
      Maudal Musical Machines 5 months ago

      @LandInbetween He said he wanted to "change the way the world sees US soccer". All he did was cement that view for another 4 years.

    • LandInbetween
      LandInbetween 5 months ago

      @Maudal Musical Machines I can't say I agree. What happened in the WC that leads you to your own conclusion? After all, you seem like another insecure American soccer fan who's too caught up in what the world thinks about US soccer than what actually happened on the pitch. Then again have you seen the fanbase of soccer/football? Ain't exactly the brightest tools in the shed.
      Heck, I don't think any of the coaches in the WC thought the USMNT was "naive."
      I mean, 1/3rd of the vid wasn't even about Berhalter - it was about the position of the manager of the USMNT.

    • Maudal Musical Machines
      Maudal Musical Machines 5 months ago

      @LandInbetween "after all" huh? You seem like another little punter who jumps to opinions with very little data 😉
      Berhalter said "I want to change how the world sees US soccer". He did not do that. Anyone who is honest and underdtands football and watched that game knows that Van Gaal made Berhalter look like an amateur. Naive. That word was all over the football world in describing the US in this game. It took Van Gaal all of 2 days studying the US to know exactly how Berhalter played us and exactly how to exploit his weaknesses. A quality coach would have responded. Berhalter simply had no answers.
      Finally, and again... those 3 goals were exactly the same, one after the other exploiting the same weaknesses. One was bad enough, but to make no adjustments to prevent the next two is egregious incompetence. It's just not good enough, and our players deserve better.

    It should be Gregg. I've heard one name that doesn't sound stupid brought up as an alternative, but Gregg has proven he's the man for the job.

    Excellent run by usmnt. However if they want to progress berhalter has to be replaced. The man is a decent fellow and coach but tactically just unable to adapt or be reactive to an opponent. If he's in charge 2026 it will just more of the same from usa. Usmnt needs to think out of the box to get even more creative players, goalscorers, how to make MLS more competitive, train harder and how to find that true winning mentality (maybe collaborate with winning teams from NFL , NBA etc on how to breed and maintain success. Maybe bring in motivational coaches. Todays game is all about fine margins and we need to go all in on soccer or. Ot at all) And all this has to be done before 2026!!!. Yes we got out of group but it wasn't convincing. On home soil in four years this cannot pass as acceptable. Whatever we are doing now such as players going to Europe to gain experience etc helps but it's just not enough. We need to really come up with something uniquely american and sustainable to dominate against the europeans at SOCCER.

      I like your gusto but Rome wasn't built in a day. My expectation for WC 2026 is USMNT to advance to the quarter finals if the current talent avoids injury and sustains their development, if quality depth is added and, especially, if a manager who's tactically sound can get the most out of the USMNT.
      The next 4 years is important, but what's more important is the long game, concentrating on youth development and growth in the MLS.

      So naive to say we need to do something “uniquely American”, Europe and South America has been hypercompetitive with soccer for 150 years, there is no major innovation we are going to find that they haven’t already. Stay away from the NFL and other American sports as much as possible. Need better development and push youth into European leagues.

      @Karl Tanner "Stay away from the NFL and other American sports as much as possible."
      This makes zero sense. If anything, incorporating the winning mentality of other sports isn't a bad thing given it's the same across each sport, whether it's soccer, basketball or gymnastics.

    So you leave Berhalter... One of the reasons is because he picked up a lot of knowledge things that he should have done things that he could have done so he's that much more better he should now improve for example next time instead of coming in third at concacaf he should come in first he should dominate with the amount of players that he has at his disposal he should be the champion of concacaf he should get through the first round of the next world cup and he should get through the round of 16 after that it's anybody's call but if he can't do that then he's out but we have to give him at least a chance he got him to where we needed them to be

      We've already qualified for 2026 as a host nation. Therefore we won't compete in qualification. So the coach won't be benchmarked by where they stand in qualification. If you believe Gregg showed enough understanding of tactics, player selections, and performed well enough to take this group beyond round of 16 in 2026....you are among the minority of the fans.
      We'll have a group of talented and experienced players for 2026. We need a similar level of coaching and most don't believe Gregg fits that bill.

      Berhalter probably had a more talented overall squad but it was incredibly inexperienced and Klinnsman actually had a #9 and a better goalkeeper.
