    • One, I think he would do well. Two, I don’t think he or the USSF would do it, because I think Klinsmann would advise him to pass and the US Soccer would be leery of another German.

      • 1. HELL NO. he can’t qualify to the round of 16 with Thomas Müller, Mario Gómez, Sami Khedira, Julian Draxler,, Toni Kroos, Mesut Özil etc. and he will do good with our talent limited lot?
        2. TRUE. USSF is not dumb enough to do that

    • Don’t worry Bizzy, USSF will act much dumber than that “as usual”. They will get very high profile Coach (but most don’t fit for US mentality and culture) pay very high salary, having a big mouth and look down all US fans (because US people do not know soccer). Same f,,k cycle again.
