American soccer woes continue. McKennie is out 6 weeks with a partial MCL rupture and Herculez Gomez exposed the Gonazlez debacle with receipts on his podcast. It's disheartening. Highlights include Thomas Rongen lying about visiting Jona's family, Richie Williams (a failure of a coach who keeps falling up) tell his family that he, at age 14, had 10 minutes to choose between academy offers in Mexico and the Bradenton Academy before he'd pull the offer, and the Mexican Federation basically acting super classy and competent in their recruitment and relationship with the family. I walked away from that podcast knowing that Gonzalez made the absolute correct choice for himself. This was a completely unforced error. The US frankly should've lost him years ago and it was only his loyalty to his birth country that kept him around long enough to give us a shot to keep him.

I really, really hope Kyle Martino wins the USSF presidency and can fix some of these obvious things. Thomas Rongen and Richie Williams should have been canned 10 years ago or more. Instead, they were given jobs with no accountability that are essential to the future of the national team. Missing the world cup is going to be beneficial in the long run. It's unfortunate that this is what it took.

From some quick searching, it looks like he's taking advantage of the NYCFC/Man City connection to be able to train at their facilities while he looks for a club in Europe, but to do so he legally had to sign something with Man City even though he's not going to have anything to do with the EPL club.

Anyone who knows more than me about it want to tell me why the new US Soccer president will be different from Sunil and not more of the same?

Well, first of all, the president will be primarily focused on the business end, amd a yet to be appointed GM will be in charge of soccer direction.

Other than that, though, it was a hugely disappointing election with the change candidates splitting their vote, never really giving anyone from outside a chance.

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince the world he didn't exist.
