With the notable exception of Ben Knight and a few others I've been extremely disapointed with what i've heard from a lot of people. Forrest and Paul James in particular.

Dale Mitchell has managed a ton of meaningful games between U-20 and the MNT, all of which he has bombed. No middle ground, no debate, they've all been a disaster.

I'm not going to pretend i know as much about soccer as PJ, Forrest, or anybody else out there reporting. But, any peon can recognize results, and we simply do not have them. People have been fired for much, much less. And that's not to say it's been 100% the coaches fault (players could have done better as well), but the performance as a whole has been nothing short of deficient.

So to all you ex-players out there, please quit kissing ass for your chance to manage the team in the future. Report the facts for the good of the game and support real change.

Ya I agree, and i do listen to the pod cast as often as i can. It's probably about as honest of an opinion as you'll find on soccer issues in this country.

What PJ and Forrest are going on about is completely rediculous. I think i've heard a more objective opinion out of Dick Howard.

Jamaica got rid of Simoes & co. because of their qualifying campaign so far. But shit, any managing change takes at least 10 months with these ass hats. So don't expect any change soon.
