What They're Saying: Jordan Morris

“I don’t want to gloat or anything. I mean, for one thing, we were playing like this was the game of our lives. They’d been going through three-a-days, and now they’re playing a college team. It wasn’t a normal game situation.”

-- Jordan Morris on the goal he scored for Stanford in a pre-2014 World Cup scrimmage against the U.S. national team that jumpstarted his national team career. Stanford coach Jeremy Gunn said Jurgen Klinsmann cut the two center backs Morris beat on his goal from the U.S. World Cup team. “I think he helped Jurgen out with that one," Gunn said. "He made that decision a little easier. (Grantland)

    @ Kevin Sims,...Hey, see Klinsmann "Fired" 2 CenterBacks for Letting a "Unknown" College player score on them...But, it's not "Fair" to ask that he be held Responsible for One Game!?!?!?

    If that happened because of one incident, that shows that Klinsmann should be fired. When I played at SJSU and we tied the SJ earthquakes 1-1 in a exhibition,Frank Yallop did not fire his backline for getting scored on.

    "Stanford coach Jeremy Gunn said Jurgen Klinsmann cut the two center backs Morris beat on his goal from the U.S. World Cup team." If that is in fact true, that is sad and pathetic and seems like the kind of decision a real unstable person would make...

    1. JK had NO IDEA who Jordan Morris was(Reincarnation of Karl Hienz Rummenigge)..As Head Coach of the National Program, HE SHOULD HAVE!!!..(JK had no problem identifying 3rd Division players in Germany)... 2. We Still don't know WHO ARE THE CENTRAL DEFENDERS for The Big Games.!?!?!?...Should be Gonzo & Brooks...Brooks is Injured, And Gonzo must have let some High School Kid to Score on him to get Left Off this Roster... 3. Cutting Players is Part of the Job...But, Part of Sunil's Job is to FIRE LOSING Coaches...He (JK) WINS; He (JK) STAYS...He (JK) LOSES; He should be FIRED!!!

    4. We still don't have an Alternative to (at the least) Back-Up Jozy...This causes JK to play Dempsey at Hi-Forward and Pushes Bradley into Dempsey position of "Flakey" "UnPredictable" Lo-Foward, and puts "Bedoya" or "Diskerud" Type player at Bradley-Center Half Position...Chain Reaction "Cluster Fudge"... 5. @#?!@$...6... #\&#@... 7...etc..etc...etc... HE WINS, HE STAYS,...HE LOSES, HE CAN TAKE HIS HELICOPTER from the Rose Bowl right to LAX and Go back to Germany, On his German Passport...
