      1. it is worse than stupid. Stupid is as stupid does. Bob Bradley was way in over his head. Yet he did win two matches. It takes more that a month or eiht matches to turn a club around.

      2. Soccer is still a sport , most Americans simply don’t understand . So why would anyone believe having an American as the manager of an English Premiership team would be a resounding success ? Bob Bradley was even more unqualified than a drunk who wants to be given a license to drive a garbage truck . Swansea City’s owners (American businessmen) were so full of themselves that it is so embarrassing .

      3. yes they do. Americans do not know the game. Yet when Tim Howard retired you saw how great a player he was. How many matches did he keep the guys in? Too many not count

      4. Tim Howard has been the only world-class player ever been produced by the country. Clint Dempsey was never consistent enough . Landon Donovan was style over substance and given way more credit than he ever deserved . Freddy Adu was the biggest bust on the scene of the game domestically . Thank God, . no one ever had the temerity to sign him long-term and then have him play professionally in one of the major European Soccer Leagues !

        I think this video sums up what’s good and bad about the game of soccer when it comes to hype.

      5. Tim Howard learned the game from Sir Alex and Man U. I agree. Donovan was a hype and bust Freddie Adu nao serve para nada. Clint Dempsey should have stayed in the EPL.
