Well being that his dad and mom were both National Team members he should have known better, they are just as connected as him.

not GGG's

Reyna's parents Claudio and Danielle Egan

GGG's brother is or was on the USSF board.

So uh... some shit went down.



Gregg issues a statement.

https://twitter.com/GreggBerhalter_/status/1610358071737389057

FWIW. I think he should be ousted because he is a bad coach, not because of some shit that went down 31 years ago and is settled between the appropriate parties.

^^Agreed I want GGG out because his tactics suck and he is to reliant on old MLS players. Not because as a teenager he got drunk and got physical with his now wife, who was probably also drunk.

This seems like dirty pool, and just an excuse for them to fire him after they said they were negotiating a new contract. Although it also sounds like blackmail was involved and they got this out to stave off negative press.

The Soap Opera just keeps getting better, apparently it was Danielle Egan (Reyna) and Claudio that sent the info to USSF

And by better I mean more embarassing for US Soccer. I guess Claudio can kiss his Austin FC job goodbye, but I also don't see how GGG keeps his job either. They both come off looking like a U11 Travel team with these antics.

If by US Soccer, you mean the federation, I 100% agree... it is embarrassing as fuck. After reading Gio's mom's statement, it definitely shows the federation and Gregg were more than a little misleading with their interpretation/statements yesterday. None of it is a good look, and I would be embarrassed to be Gio at the moment, but our terrible federation is a train wreck.

Statement from Gio's mom, Danielle..

So the way I see it you have a dynamic young player in Gio Reyna who has a massive future for both club and country.

Then you have Gregg Berhalter a mediocre head coach that probably shouldn't be coaching above a mid level MLS team. Who got the job because he had family in US Soccer.

I am sorry US Soccer really has no choice you have to not renew Berhalter and get a new coach. His postion will be untenable, its obvious Gio will be frozen out by him and if his club form is good that will anger fanbase and some players. This would be more egregious than him freezing out John Brooks.

Agreed with that, but this came to a head when it leaked that Gregg was doing a ted talk tour on the back of his "genius" leadership wherein he managed to patch up a self-inflicted wound.

It's absolutely ridiculous that Gio was ever told in the first place that he would have a limited role in the WC. Its double ridiculous that an internal team matter got broadcast in a way that could have jeopardized a kid's professional future. The icing on the cake is that us soccer feels like it has to start an investigation (because of all the women's soccer abuse stuff) after a private conversation and now even if it wasn't the Reyna's intention, it went public too.

Maybe us soccer avoids all this shit by not being a completely inbred pile of shit of an organization.

Sooooo my hot take is that we have a bulldozer parent making waves on the national soccer stage because her widdle son didn't get enough playtime.

Sounds like an accurate description of modern parenting.

Oh and yea, GGG needs to go.

Definitely a bulldozer parent, but according to her the waves came when our awful coach decided to leak internal team problems via a motivational "leadership" summit after the cup was over, not when Gio didn't get playing time.

That was what seemingly set off the Reynas and although in the same scenario I wouldn't have called my adult son's coach, I would have been steaming mad too if my longtime friend effectively is trying to torpedo my son's burgeoning career because he is getting media heat (rightfully so) about not playing my son in favor of some mediocre MLSers.

As a new Leeds bandwagoner from late last season, I would like to invite all Americans to join us in the relegation fight.

Gio scored the game winner today and did the Depay celebration again. LOL. The kid is making Gregg look like the clownshow he is.

Also, USMNT friendly against Serbia tonight at 10pm on HBO max and peacock (spanish). There are a couple of players that will be getting their first caps and could play for us in 2026... Paxten Aaronson (Brendan's more technical little brother), Brendan Vazquez, Gaga Slonina (young chelsea signing at GK), and Alex Vendejas (mexican duel nat we just stole back).

https://www.si.com/soccer/2023/03/13/us-soccer-reveals-findings-investigation-gregg-berhalter-reyna-usmnt

Berhalter investigation is over. Spoiler alert. The Reynas are the quintessential sports-parent assholes and Berhalter can still potentially be hired as coach of the USMNT.

Also, Berhalter didn't kick his wife once but pushed her to the ground and kicked her there until someone stopped him.

Our federation is so damn inbred that it allows bullshit like this to happen behind the scenes. I sure hope they hire someone from outside as sporting director.

I know Marsch rep is down after Leeds, and he'll prob have to adjust his style for international soccer, but this would be a really exciting hire imo

Not sure how I feel about Marsch. He is a super likeable guy and I think he would have buy-in from the players, but he seems pretty limited tactically. I just can't imagine how Reyna and Pulisic in the high press, playing frantically is the best use of them. It probably also locks in Tyler Adams as the 6 and I think that limits our creativity quite a bit. Maybe he brings on an assistant to help be a bit more dynamic with the system.

I watched a heck of a lot of Leeds this season and I have seen 2 things that were true about Marsch... 1) Leeds sucks because of their back line and 9s, not because of Marsch. Marsch always had the boys motivated and playing hard and he should have been given the opportunity to finish the sesason. The past few results would have never happened under Marsch and 2)The frantic high-press style that is his calling card makes for exciting games, but ugly football. It also favors guys like aaronson, adams and jesus who run alot and look good defensively in the press, but are extremely limited technically and so look garbage (not adams as much here, but I would like to see some USMNT lineups without him) against good opponents.

GGG the soccer terrorist is back. Confirmed on ESPN and the athletic.

Imagine hiring a search firm and wasting six months just so you can hire the coach you already had. Jesus Christ. What a shit show our federation is.

On a brighter note, we are up 1-0 at half vs Mexico.

GGG coming back is just a terrible waste of time. The entire senior hierarchy of US Soccer needs to be tarred and feathered.

This has been the week so far, his agent put out that he was in the running for Club America (laughable) and Sparta Rotterdam jobs. Then in the 1st half of a rivalry game all the sports networks start pushing out alerts that he is taking the job.

I get that a lot of the NT players like him, but his tactics against the Netherlands should be why he should not have been back. I guess this means Acosta will keep getting callups along with Tits and Ferriera.

As for the game. The Salvadorian Referee was shit last night, but its CONCACAF all the referess suck. The reason the 2nd half went the way it did was because he only showed one yellow in 1st half. He lost control, if McKennie is sent off then 19 for the Mexicant's should have been sent off as well. Dest should have known that McKennie was sent off for same thing anytime you touch the face VAR is going to send you off.

Now the game against Canada Sunday is going to be harder. Mexico is the the clear #3 in region now, its US and Canada's Federation now and Canada has given us fits the last 3-4 times we have played them and that was with Dest, McKennie, and Adams all of whom will now be missing barring appeals for Dest and McKennie.

If FIFA and CONCACAF want to get serious and eliminate that chant, threaten them with suspension from FIFA. Take the WC away from them (there are plenty of venues in US and Canada). The US stop scheduling matches with them in areas where the Mexican population is large (LA, Texas, Vegas, Arizona, Florida). They should stop this anyways, last night the crowd was probably 3/4's for Mexico.

^^i don’t even think most players love the guy. I think they have known it was gonna be GGG for a while now and so you started seeing the spin campaign helped along by our gutless domestic soccer media knowing it would be an unpopular choice. Now we have a wife kicker for a coach in two thousand and twenty three.

Pulisic put out a quote after the game last night that our win last night was due to the foundation that berhalter laid. No the fuck it wasn’t. Gregg never beat Mexico that badly. Why? Because he stubbornly sees Gio as a winger. He makes A-rob eat up all of Pulisics space out on the wing so he can lob ineffective crosses to no one. We have played some of the most open and free ball I have seen from the usmnt from and interim and and assistant of an interim because they don’t overengineer everything. They roll out our best lineups and let the kids cook. Gregg sucks.

Agreed and the waste of money on a search firm only to rehire the guy you let his contract expire.

This means that probably every well known coach they approached wanted more money than they were willing to spend.
