MOST COMMENTED

"I think every player goes through those moments. Some a bit earlier, some a bit later. I had those moments too, they came usually when you were kind of ready for the next step or a change. It helped me a lot to change [clubs] a few times more. It kept me on my toes and I kept learning a lot of things off the field too. I had those thoughts though."

-- U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann on Landon Donovan, who he sympathized with. Donovan said this week that he was finding it hard to find the hunger for the game. (Reuters)

    what are we witnessing as us soccer fans? Jurgen klinsmann modeled his 06 german team from that of the top flight teams in the epl. he asked his germans to play ungermanlike uptempo, highpressure, possession style similar to man united, arsenal,an chelsea. he has now modeled another team to play not like a national team style(american) if you will, but an epl team similar to chelsea or man united. I always felt that building a team using this model would be preferrable as these teams play year round and are superior to national teams in style of play, cohesion, and effectiveness. gl JK with the progress to 2014 WC
