    Gonna piggyback off a point @HatterDon HD made in the Nations League thread about how the US plays. Is there a single person other then his brother (nepotism at its worst) that thinks Berhalter is the man to get the best out of this group? Obviously he’s here for now, but the second the US is in trouble making the WC or the second they can’t get out of the group stage in Qatar he has to go.

    I asked my son last night 'why the hell is that guy the head coach?' He said nobody else must've wanted it.

    You can question his tactics or team selection but Weston running over to hug Berhalter after his goal tells me that Berhalter has created a culture that has players willing to run through walls for him.

    @BarryWhite I did notice that hug, and I would gladly eat crow if it would mean success for our team. I’m not going to let a magical night in Denver, thank goodness for the El Tri offside otherwise it’s 2-0, to change my mind. Like you said the team selection was seriously questionable, but give the man credit, the team showed serious grit.

    @SoCalJoe - No expectations that one match would win folks over but thought he deserved credit for rebuilding the USMNT culture after the demolishing done by his predecessor.
