Last quote by Landon Donovan

It's a dark day. What we have to do now is realize that it's over and, instead of finger-pointing and name-calling and the blame game, we need people in leadership positions to sit down and re-evaluate things and ask ourselves how do we prevent this from happening again.feedback

The most recent quote attributed to Landon Donovan came from an article called Time to Re-evaluate U.S. Soccer: “I think there are a number of reasons we're missing the best kids, but the fact is we are missing a lot of the best kids. And that should not be the situation in a country of this size, with the resources we have, where kids are getting passed over for any reason, whether it's socioeconomic status, race, religion, proximity to a club. Our best, most talented kids should have the opportunity that everybody else has. There's no easy answer to that. But it's something that needs to be fixed.”.

I like the current 11 when I think about it. Probably [Jorge] Villafana, [Geoff] Cameron, [John] Brooks, Tim [Howard], [DeAndre] Yedlin. And then you can go through and say is it Michael [Bradley] and Christian, Darlington, Jozy, Clint and Fabian. That 11 is good. I think what we're trying to figure out is there real depth that can be added and help in a real way. Who are 12, 13, 14, 15, 16? Who are those guys. That, I'm not sure of yet.feedback

He's pulling off plays in every game. I was watching him the other day in China against Milan, and he pulls off plays. In a perfect world you have three or four of those guys on the field. Right now, when Clint's in form, he's one of those guys. If he's not, then he's not. If Jozy's in form, he can be.feedback

Christian, you can say, is one of those guys. It's a lot on his shoulders. We should be good enough where we have three or four of those players. Like I said, if Jozy and Clint are on form, and Fabian [Johnson] is playing well, then those are guys who can pull off those plays, but right now you would say Christian's the only one you consistently would feel confident in that way.feedback

Honestly, watching this Gold Cup hasn't given me a ton of confidence in that way. You want to see a couple, like three or four, step up. Omar [Gonzalez] is for sure that next guy up at center back. Who's the next guy up top? Is it Jordan [Morris]? Is it Juan [Agudelo]? Is it Dom? Is Kelyn Rowe really the next guy in midfield? Is it Gyasi [Zardes]? I don't know because nobody has staked that claim.feedback

It's U.S. Soccer's challenge. Argentina has six guys like that, and two of them don't make their World Cup roster. We have one or two. That's what needs to get better and it's not necessarily a thing that one player just turns on. It's, Do we have that or not? Do we have those options or not?' We have a few, but inconsistent. We need four or five consistently if we're going to make it to the next level.feedback

Clearly, everyone says he's a great player, he's good, he's special. So are we trying to push him into something he's not? Isn't it good enough that he's being effective? He's made it to the national team being who he is. That's pretty damn good. Can he maybe turn it up a little bit? Maybe, but I think he's done really well.feedback

They seem to have a good ownership group and are checking off the boxes, slowly but surely. I really do think this would be a very good market.feedback

Bruce will tell you that, obviously the tactical side of the game is important, but he believes the other parts of the game are just as important. To claim he's not tactically intelligent is wrong, it's just not something he's overly focused on discussing like a lot of coaches are in the game now.feedback

I knew there was something special when I first saw him play, but I would have never imagined that he would be able to be this consistent for this long just because he played so hard. And when you play that intense and that hard, and put yourself in danger that often, you would expect that you would have a lot more injuries. But he's been remarkably healthy throughout his career.feedback

I'm very proud of the record, there's no question. But when you put it in context, I don't know the numbers but I know Clint has fewer penalty goals than I had. I know he's done it in less caps than I have. I know he's probably done it in less years than I have. And he's been able to keep himself going, and that to me is unbelievably impressive.feedback

And you have to remember that he was overseas for a lot of years, so he didn't get to come in all the time and play friendlies in January against the Norwegian B team, or Barbados. So in my opinion he's done it in more difficult circumstances and that makes it that much more impressive.feedback

If the fans feel part of the process and more connected to what's going on, then they're going to own it.feedback

Mar 24 2017

I've been waiting for something to captivate me and to find something I'm really truly passionate about. When the possibility first came about I was excited by it.feedback

Mar 24 2017

Yeah, I'm done. I'm done. No more playing for me. I have not [gone public]. But that is definitely the case.feedback
