The idea of hiring Klinsmann wasn't a bad one, and there were positives from his hiring, certainly early on. It's not that any external guy is better than any US/MLS manager, but the ceiling is a lot higher for the top echelon of international managers. It only makes sense, as it's a much larger pool. Got to also find the right person, of course.
Im convinced that whatever positives that came from his hiring were the players taking it upon themselves to get results. Outside of a few random games we largely looked like crap. By the end of all this I think the team had completely lost their identity and their will.
