WOW ~~ I started making an ideal 11, but its getting nuts... Weah or Dest on the wing? Pulisic or Robinson? Does Gio have a spot? Does the MMA midfield go on the back burner? Balogun, Dike, Sargent, Pepi, Vazquez, Ferrara, Wright, Pefok all fighting for 3 spots in roster? 

 

This is depth which gives us a lot of options. Need a highly competent coach with national team experience. I'm partial to Americans for the national team, but there are alot of stars on this team. I'm not sure who is up for it.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

God I hope so. A midfield 3 in which no one can progress the ball is more than a little unpleasant to watch.

BJ Callaghan is the new interim interim manager.

"It was always six weeks away. Every month, [Nick Sakiewicz] would say, we're six weeks away from the stadium. It's been the longest six weeks of my life." - Mike Petke

This is insane, they need a coach not another interim manager.

They wont announce a coach until Sporting Director starts his job in August. So dumb on the Federations part. Simply waisting time with the carousel of interim coaches.

Very odd. They should have kept Berhalter on if they arent hiring a permanent. At least hire someone as a coach for the year (ala Lesesne)...

I dont mind the interim approach if theyre waiting on someone they really want. They have to get this appointment right, so why rush it?

BJ Callahan is a former Philly assistant under Curtain. Maybe he's a John the Baptist for a permanent press-heavy head coach?

"Waiting on someone they really want" would be nice, but I bet it's more like "wait and see, and hope for the best." 

 

There are benefits to being patient with the process and hopefully it all works out with a good hire. I'm just saying the current approach is more likely the path of least resistance, not a carefully considered masterplan to get the perfect manager.
