Bob Bradley: It Is Time for a New Head Coach for US Soccer
Bob Bradley Needs to be Replaced as U.S. Head Coach
After 25 minutes of Gold Cup final play Bob Bradley looked like a star and tactical genius. The addition of Freddy Adu and the reinsertion of Landon Donovan were paying immediate dividends. Adu's role in the starting line up allowed Donovan to move way up top and attack, and it helped the U.S. move out to a 2-0 lead.
Then it all came crashing down as Mexico went onto score four unanswered goals and claim the Gold Cup. And the U.S. seemed helpless to stop or alter the flow.
The game was tied at two entering halftime, and Bob Bradley had no answers to try and sway the momentum back to his side.
In the end, it is not this game that should decide Bradley's fate. Mexico proved they were the better squad. There was no amount of coaching that could have helped the U.S. overcome the difference in talent. Mexico is too young, too fast, and proficient.
Bradley showed in the final that he has a good feel for this team and the courage to make bold moves, but this is still a team that spent the majority of the Gold Cup looked stale and lifeless far too often.
There is no greater condemnation of a coach than that.
