David Moyes' reputation as a pragmatic manager is well-founded. His Everton team was certainly built from the back and reports from the Manchester United camp suggested he wanted to do likewise at Old Trafford.

Is it possible to rate happiness? If so, how much does that factor into a team sport like soccer?
We've seen disgruntled teams implode in tournaments, and we've also seen teams where everyone was smiling, looking like they're having a great time, genuinely friendly with each other, do very well in games.

Herc, who played in the 2010 World Cup with the USA, is as red-white-and-true-blue as they come, encouraging other young Mexican-Americans like Paul Arriola to cast their lot with the USA.
