News and Notes - 9/25/2006

Tim Howard interviewed has an interview with Tim Howard, Manchester United and USMNT goalkeeper (currently on loan with Everton). Tim is quoted as saying that a possible problem with the development of the US team prior to the World Cup was that their opponents have been pushovers. I love this man. He hit the nail right on the head.

Until the USSF schedules tougher friendly matches against quality sides, the level of play in the USMNT will never increase. We need to be playing the England's, Argentina's, Frances, Nigeria's, Holland's, Ivory Coast's. When we start lining up against those teams, and stop lining up against Panama, Greneda, Canada and Haiti, we will get better and getting out of a group phase in a World Cup will not be such a fantasy.

Marcus Hahnemann interviewed has an interview with Reading and USMNT goalkeeper, Marcus Hahnemann. Marcus seems to feel that an American coach would be a better fit for the USMNT, as we have such a different playing environment compared to the rest of the world. He also feels that the USSF will get the USMNT scheduled for matches starting in January.
