The german has finally arrived...

Here we go the Bob Bradely era is over and yes their is a tear in my eye he was a positive step for US soccer he imposed his philosophy and the results followed, let us not forget we won the England group at the World Cup.

Now we usher in a new era. A tryst if you may between diehard soccer observers of the united states and the man we have put our faith in even before his first result. The on again off again relationship the US federation has had with Jurgen is as depressing and exciting as any daytime drama, and now we have finally got it our way Jurgen is now the man in charge of our National team (tear being shed again).

I for one am excited I firmly believe if he can impose his philosophy and style upon our US players we will finally be inching closer to the level all american soccer fans hoped we could reach, that glass ceiling is starting to crack...

This being said we have to now realize that the best players who fit the system are the ones who will begin to play I am not saying our best players on paper I am saying the best 11 that fit the system...Brek Shea was buzzing in the midfield and his workrate as well as beckermans ability to sit and protect our back four were decisive in our second half rejuvination against mexico not to mention Agudelo's spirit and willingness to express himself need i remind you of rogers goal a simple tap in yes, but a strikers eye to be in that spot is ultimately what got us back in it...

A new regime has arrived and I believe we can build on Bradely already positive leadership of these past five years.
