Assuming the USMNT hire Earnie Stewart as the GM, who do you think he will hire as the next manager?
Can we get Joachim Low??? LOL

Not sure who he'll go after. That will be interesting to see. Do we go with a retread foreign manager that becomes available after the World Cup? Or do we go American with someone like Berhalter? I hope we don't go down the Bradley path again.

David Wagner would be interesting, but I don't see him leaving a club position.

It’s certainly the safe hire, which makes it really frustrating that it didn’t happen over a year ago. They wasted a lot of valuable time for nothing.
I'm less than thrilled with the hire. Staying domestic and pulling someone from the MLS is not what is needed. When you have someone like Julen Lopetegui say he's interested and then end up with Berhalter, it's a bit of a let down.

USWNT to host a friendly at Busch Stadium: https://www.mlb.com/cardinals/tickets/events/soccer?partnerId=ed-13298837-1110927933

The match will take place on Thursday May 16, 2019. It will be part of the USWNT's Countdown to the Cup, a series of matches that will serve as a send-off prior to the team heading to France for next summer's World Cup. The match will be the next to last match before they head overseas. The opponent has yet to be determined.
 
Is there a movie on this flight?

Not a Crew fan, but very good news that the club is staying in Columbus. Would have been a terrible for MLS to allow ownership to pull up stakes in a city that has supported the team so well.

Tottenham got the 1-1 draw today against Barcelona at Camp Nou to secure their spot in the knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League.

Good for Spurs, but Barca wasn't exactly fielding their A team.
It's not like they were fielding a group of academy players. Coutinho played the whole game. Rakitic, Dembele, Denis Suarez and Busquets all played. Messi played the last 30 minutes + stoppage and did nothing.

And, Spurs were down to their 3rd string RB who'd never played meaningful minutes in any game. His mistake led to Barca's loan goal through Osmane Dembele.

When does Tottenham make a DVD of this match? :rolleyes:
