"Bob can put 11 players on the field as well as anyone and get the best out of them. I will tell you now: We are not winning the World Cup in 2014, whoever is in charge. People need to be realistic. The best thing [the critics] can do is shut up. A bunch of people get on the Internet and start stirring things up and it snowballs. Just let him do his job."

-- Bruce Arena on Bob Bradley, who succeeded Arena four years ago as U.S. national team coach and had his contract renewed for another four years. (Yahoo!Sports)

    bruce i really admire your creative insightful commentary. If all it takes is the Bruce Arena philosophy, he might have made some professional progress of his own since being sacked. Bruce why don't you reflect and think of some ways to improve identification and development in this country so that we can move forward and become a international soccer power. BB hasn't had one creative idea in this regard in four years

    The absolute arrogance and contempt for the long term development of US soccer (not the organization) shown by Bruce Arena should serve notice to the soccer community that the USMNT is not theirs --- it is owned by Bruce and his fellow American coaches who alone know what needs to be done. Anyone harboring any doubts as to the backwater that our soccer has become should put them to rest after listening to Bruce. I have come to the conclusion that supporting the USMNT is no longer worth the effort. My money and time will be much better spent on following MLS, La Liga, EPL, etc. I would love to see what would happen to his royal highness, Bruce the Magnificent, if his comments had been made to an English press!!

    Bruce Arena and all who defend Bradley are complete idiots. First of all Klinsmann would do a lot better in formations, and developing an attaking team. And second, and more important, whith Klinsamnn's high profile charisma it would have kept US soccer in the media spotlight, win or lose. As you remember, Gulati was lamenting that losing to Ghana kept the US from being in the media spotlight another 2 weeks in the WC. So it's an all around loss for US soccer to have rehired boring Bob.
