Geoff Cameron: What Must Change in U.S. Soccer

Cameron is not wrong. The US Soccer president elected tomorrow needs to get on this page, no matter how he or she thinks it might embarrass MLS.

Super Bowl 0x34

All my Lions fans buddies on Facebook aren't too happy with the Matt Patricia hire right now

I just wonder if he'll shave the damn beard to at least look like a head coach. Probably too many years of working under Mr. Just Tear the Damn Sleeves Off My Sweatshirt to hope for that.

I don't think finalist means quite the same thing here, just that she completed the necessary forms and such for a formal candidacy. I actually think Kathy Carter is the most likely winner at this point although this is pretty uninformed speculation.

Bruce Arena Resigns as USMNT Manager

As has been said by many he was hired to get the team to Russia and was never staying longer than that. I'm wondering who will take over (Peter Vermes, Tab Ramos?) or if US Soccer will put in a caretaker until after the Feb. election for a new president.

But I'm not upset at this change, he made too many poor choices. Why bring Geoff Cameron all the way over and then not play him when the team HAD TO HAVE A RESULT?

United States Eliminated from World Cup Qualification

I watched whole game wondering how the US played so soft and sloppy, the horror growing even after Pulisic's fine goal to start the second half. Time after time a defender or Bradley just gave the ball back to T&T and until the last 10 minutes no one other than Dempsey and Pulisic played with any urgency. Then the scores came in from the other games, like a nailgun through my chest.

Carlo Ancelotti: Bayern Munich sack Italian manager. Expectations were he was going in the summer, with a year left on his contract, but he just seems have lost all interest and so I'm not surprised by the earlier departure. Will Bayern find a way to get Julien Nagelmann now or leave Willy Sagnol in charge for the season?

NCAA Coaches, Adidas Executive Face Charges

What I read said this is the tip of the iceberg, that these indictments are going to be used as probable cause for warrants and maybe a grand jury. The Assistant US Attorney in charge of the case said that anyone involved in these hijinks should come talk to him before he comes to them. Add on the serious penalties coming any month now for North Carolina...

Ross Barkley Nixes Move to Chelsea on Transfer Deadline Day

This was one of the weirder transfer dramas of which I'm aware. Did Barkley actually have a medical or not? Guess it depends on who you believe.

The open questions for me are Alexis Sanchez and (sob) Philip Coutinho. Neither got the move they really wanted and now I wonder if either or both will pull a Diego Costa-like sulk, or at least be a huge dressing room drag.
