'Taylor Twellman is going bonkers

'Taylor Twellman is going bonkers

But maybe the best comments came from former national team member and current ESPN analyst Taylor Twellman, who went off on the state of the U.S. Men's National Team.

"We will definitely lose the surge in popularity that happens every four years around the U.S. World Cup matches", Dayes said. We will continue to invest in all aspects of the sport, from player development, to creating world-class stadiums and training facilities and to having clubs that are committed to their communities. It's on and I'm going to bring it up right now: The gloves should have been off years ago. And the discussion after Brazil, Max, was 'Can we beat the Colombias and the Belgiums and the Argentinas of the world?' You kidding me? Major League Soccer is more committed than ever to building the sport in the US and Canada.

"There's nothing wrong with what we're doing", he maintained. There also figure to be calls for a reexamination of the player development structure, from youth teams through academies designed with the hope of producing elite prospects. "They have not done a good enough job getting this group ready to play, and keep in mind: last two Olympics, no United States".




"This is an utter embarrassment", Twellman said.

American sponsors started treating soccer like a major sport, if not at the level of the NFL, baseball and the NBA, at least as prominent as the NHL, golf and tennis. "Max, you don't deserve to go to the World Cup, plain and simple".
