It's not who? I called out several players for their less than "world class" effort. I agree with you that Bradley may be in over his head, but at this level, how much "clear instruction" should an international player need? Some of these guy's are making big $ playing in Europe at the club level (with success), they should have a pretty good idea of how the game works. That I don't put on Bradley. Basic trapping, ball control, passing, getting back on defense after giving the ball up (Beasley, Dempsey, Altidore) is not happening. That's individual effort that is falling short.
Bradley needs to "manage" the team better, not just coach. Just because a guy plays in the EPL should not mean an automatic starting job with the national team. If a player is not getting the job done, Bradley needs to sit him and give someone else a shot. Someone that might actually care. That's not coaching, that's managing. He won't be let go this close to a world cup. So don't get your hopes up. But if they are 3 and out next summer, we will have someone new again.
Both the coaching staff and a majority of the players need to get it together.

I think he's saying the U.S. should pursue a Dutch coach for the USMNT.

Is Scolari still unemployed?

what i am saying is that you can have superstars on your team but if you don't have a coach who can motivate you and tell you clearly what he expect from you when you are on the field you will fail.

What I need to figure out is our striker situation. Dempsey (I'm a fan of Clint's) seems like he wishes he was somewhere else. No fire at all in his game. When he loses the ball, he just seems to stand there and lets someone else go after it. Not good. And am I missing something regarding Jozy Altidore and Conor Casey? I know Brian Ching is out with an injury, but this is the best the US has as central strikers? Altidore looks so inaffective against world class defenders (Brazil and Italy) and Casey in the last WCQM against Honduras was just awful. And I wish they would stop forcing players like DaMarcus Beasley on us and telling how world class they are. He's not. He can be if he wants to, but like Dempsey, he shows to be very lazy out there.
Please don't get me wrong, I would love to see the US do well in every international competition. Some of our guy's are playing their butts off (Spector, Donovan, Howard, Onyewu, Bornstein), but some just don't seem to care. Maybe it's the coaching. I was a big Bruce Arena fan and was bummed when they let him go. They seemed to play with a greater passion under him.
Whatever it is, I hope they get it figured out before next summer, or it could be ugly with a tough first round draw.
I like Dempsey, but like you said, somethings not right. He just doesn't seem motivated to do anything. He has some good touches on the ball, but again, he won't chase after someone after loosing it. I will say that I'm enjoying watching Spector and Onyewu. They are having to put in a lot of work, and are proving why they are on the team. And on the Beasley issue. I don't know why Bradley's starting him. I wouldn't mind seeing him in a sub spot, but that's it. I guess they could start Freddy Adu in his place to give speed and move Landon up some more. Jozy is still fairly young, but I think he will come around some time or another.

I would like to see more emotion in Bradley (coach). Take a look at the other coaches and you can see a huge difference.

Fair enough. I agree with you on that.
