US Soccer: Which Way Ahead?

In case you're wondering why your loyal vagabond has yet to comment on Team USA's woes at the Confederation's Cup, I'm watching the matches again and trying to put some emotional distance between these events (and see how they respond against a strong Egypt side) before offering my views on where we stand and where to go from here.

In the meantime, what do you think? Do we need a change of direction, leadership, or both?

Are we developing the kinds of players we need or are we churning out players with big hearts but little imagination or technique?

Have your say in our comments section.

Like you, I'm trying not to even think too much about the "State of the Soccer Union". It's been a depressing few days. Looking forward to seeing your perspective.

Chris,

I don't even think we've got guys with big hearts anymore. It's a bunch of prima donna poseurs for the most part.

Donovan, Howard, Onyewu and apparently Spector might be excused and maybe Baby Bradley, but they still are guilty of stinking up the joint way too often.

(Much better now...
Gotta play Egypt...
ok, not feeling so good again ;-)
