Gregg Berhalter named national team manager. More of the same then.

Zero reason they couldn’t have made that appointment a year ago. Also a total joke that they didn’t even really consider anyone else.

Wholly uninspiring choice and the least kept secret ever.

You guys turned down f***ing Julen Lopetegui when he asked to get an interview for the position FFS.

Tata Martino and Juan Carlos Osorio as well. Fine if they interview all these guys but opt for Berhalter instead. Just make the case. But there’s no indication they ever really considered anyone else. Reeks of nepotism, as Berhalter’s bro is a USMNT bigwig.

Guy in charge of hiring him was his old teammate and close friend as well, I read.

I don't mind Berhalter, just the manner in which it happened. Also annoying that Oscar Pareja was the other option and they went with Berhalter. Pareja was my hope from day one, one of the few MLS coaches willing to play his academy products.

Trapp playing over Tyler Adams or Weston McKennie will be a fun way to start off the cycle

Of course the MLS nerds like Matt Doyle are wanking themselves silly over this hire.

Tyler Adams joining RB Leipzig in January :thup: very good move for his development.
