    The Berhalter Era kicked off last night in a friendly against Panama. Lot of new faces on the field. Solid 3-0 performance. ööööing Zardes though. He back and worse than ever.

    I just don’t get how you can play soccer for a living and completely avoid developing any touch whatsoever. It really is remarkable. I can literally find 10 dudes playing pickup after work with better foot skills. How is that possible?

    And how do we keep putting him on the field?! Looks like he’s here to stay too with the Berhalter/Crew connection.

    Some great material from last night to add to this compilation:

    Will get a better read this weekend against the Ticos. Panama squad was even less experienced than US.

    What's even more remarkable is that he manages to play on the NATIONAL TEAM with such a lack of touch. It's not like he's blazing fast, plays tough defense, or has a great shot to make up for it. I literally don't get what he brings to the table at that level.

    2-0 win vs Costa Rica.

    Too bad that’s not 6 points in WC qualifying over the past couple of days.
