    "bradley" named to best XI.  Shows just how weak this conference is.   He did a great job walking around the field.   Heck, lets bring back Donovan and Dempsey.  The USSF has no vision and we will never imporove with the current leadership.  Predition: USA non-qualifier for 2022

    A prediction of perdition?  I had to ask.  But that's where USMNT is already.  So more perdition.
