Since it appears that we are going to be stuck with Jurgen Klinsmann as the US Men's National Team manager for the foreseeable future, it seems prudent to get to the bottom of what the boss really means when he unleashes his well-worn contradictions.

If you've followed the USMNT since Klinsmann got the job in 2011, you know that very little of what the manager says can be taken at face value.

Friday night I posted here that there is a bright future ahead of US Soccer based on the U-20 team that is attempting to qualify for its World Cup, and that still stands. The talent on that team is miles above any U-20 team in recent memory, and that's without some amazing talent left at home.
