NOW MAYBE A STEP FORWARD, NOT YET ANOTHER STEP SIDEWAYS

Bob Bradley, U.S. National Team coach since 2007, was fired during a meeting with U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati and federation CEO Dan Flynn at the Home Depot Center outside Los Angeles.

The USSF said it would have a further annoncement in two days.  [July 28]

Comment:  David Gould.  Bill Lloyd.  Andrew M. Brown.  Walter Giesler.  William Jeffrey.  John Wood.  Erno Schwartz.  George Meyer.  Jim Reed.  John Herberger.  George Meyer (again).  Phil Woosnam.  Gordon Jago.  Bob Kehoe.  Max Wosniak.  Eugene Chyzowych.  Gordon Bradley.  Dettmar Cramer.  Al Miller.  Manny Schellscheidt.  Walter Chyzowych, Bob Gansler, Alkis Panagoulias, Lothar Osiander, Bob Gansler (again), John Kowalski, Bora Milutinovic, Steve Sampson, Bruce Arena . . . and Bob Bradley.

The leading candidate to succeed Bradley is Juergen Klinsmann.  That would make Klinsmann the only U.S. coach to have ever actually played in a World Cup, let alone won one.
