U.S. coach Bob Bradley will meet with U.S. Soccer officials this week to talk about his future with the national team, reports ESPN. The meeting with president Sunil Gulati isn’t necessarily to extend or fire the coach, the report says, but “simply to discuss the future.”
After the U.S. was eliminated from the World Cup in the sweet 16 this summer, Gulati felt the team “was capable of more” and described its performance as “mixed results.”
I say off with his head. Bradley’s that it. Not because I don’t think he’s capable. But because I think we need a fresh approach to take us to the semi-finals again. And because I think a head coach should play strikers that actually score goals (aka Edson Buddle).
