He's the greatest coach that Major League Soccer has enjoyed – and maybe the country altogether.

Bruce Arena helped turn MLS's glamour squad into a bona fide champion three times over. Before that, he helped the US Men's National Team to its best World Cup finish in the modern era (not to forget its most disappointing as well).

Landon Got It

The MLS Cup, yeah, that. Landon Donovan went out with a championship. Yet more than that, LD got what it meant to bring together all the diverse craziness that is part of the soccer landscape in the USA. Americans played in the first World Cup ever, but that bright start (a semifinal finish) back in 1930 quickly fizzled out without consistent support in a big country.

It's a feeling all too familiar at this point.

On Sunday afternoon, the New England Revolution played in the MLS Cup for the fifth time, and for the fifth time they walked off in defeat after the final whistle. They fell short to the LA Galaxy for the third time in the MLS Cup Final, and for the third time, they lost by a single goal in extra time.

In the wake of the retirement of USA veteran defender DaMarcus Beasley, I immediately thought of Robbie Rogers and how well he has been playing at left back for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

It's well known also in SoCal circles that Rogers knows J. Klinsmann from way back.Klinsmann helped guide Rogers at various points in his career, including recommending him as a player to the coach of Leeds in England back in 2012.

Our next Season Review piece focuses on center back Kofi Opare.

Back at the end of July, when D.C. United swapped allocation ranking spots with the LA Galaxy to acquire Kofi Opare, it looked like Dave Kasper had delivered yet another good move in 2014. United was not going to use their allocation ranking for anything, while LA was angling for Sacha Kljestan.

No, it isn't that hard to coach in MLS.

How could it possibly be difficult to manage a diverse mix of roster players, fly enormous distances all over the country, get the most from young developmental players in fledgling Academy systems, scout affordable talent in Central and South America, choose the best investments for big-money talent with an eye also toward marketing to local and Latino fans, stay under a salary cap, negotiate with league demands such as unbalanced scheduling and oppressive day games, and also work with media that can alternately ignore the sport entirely or insist on access that is unprecedented in other countries but standard in the U.
