maybe the team played really bad intentionally to get gregg to bring in jordan and tim ream, and to show out for turner

Gregg has been actually sandbagging since the home win against Panama in WCQ to not give away any tactics to our WC opponents.

6head.

They were just nervous because they are hoping for a spot on the plane!!! It has nothing to do with gregggggg changing the squad in every single match!!!!!!!

I think you mean since his appointment in 2018

I don't mean to take away the accomplishment of qualifying in concacaf but we looked bad doing it

Only really looked good when playing Mexico and that seemed to be more from hate than tactics

Ya I feel like Southgate and Gregg are both benefiting from people above them that don't actually watch the games, just look at the results.

I guess in essence that's what tournament football is, but I think the USAMNT project is missing the point that Americans still won't get behind soccer if it's not entertaining to watch.

Letting qualifying in CONCACAF be the end all be all for our manager was the worst decision. It’s difficult, sure, but it’s Honduras and Panama! We have players playing for Chelsea, Barca, and fucking Juventus. We should destroy those teams every time we play them, CONCACAF or not.

Literally thought of this meme after hearing his comments. The guy is a meme.

I think ideally we should do both. Sometimes both the players and the plan click. Other times they both dont. The players were clearly ass this time, but that also highlighted persistent issues with this system, which is that it doesnt provide much attack through the middle, leaving us not looking dangerous a lot of the time.

Literally gave you two separate examples of why in another thread myself and plenty of others did too, you didn’t respond.

The players aren’t perfect but I think you’re just very new the sport or something, this is very clearly and plainly not the players at the base level. It’s amazingly clear it’s a tactics issue. Learn the game before you go to every thread bitching about players.

Or at least explain why UCL winning Pulisic, Juventus starter McKennie, Leeds starters Sargent and Adams, former Barcelona man and Milan player Dest etc. are somehow unable to compete with decades of teams who couldn’t even sniff their leagues. Why exactly did we have better results with players who couldn’t even make it into those leagues much less those teams?

We have players in every league around the world. They excel there but the National Team flounders. That is on Berhalter.

Maybe the system has been a smokescreen and a completely different style of play will be revealed in November. The scouting reports of our opponents useless and their gameplans flawed. Our best players starting. We'll all admit we underestimated the shrewdness of Berhalter.
