FanHouse’s Brian Straus thinks that re-upping Bob Bradley for four more years reveals that U.S. Soccer Federation boss Sunil Gulati . . .
“didn’t want exciting. He wanted stability and a coach who has many more wins than losses. In Bradley, he found his man.”
Martin Rogers of Yahoo! Sports thinks Bradley — and the decision to reappoint him — should be cut some slack:
“For any nation, a period such as this should be one of optimism and the beginning of a long road that, if traveled correctly, can lead to a pot of gold. As it embarks down that path, the USA can at least be safe in the knowledge that it does so steered by a man who has taken the journey before, and will surely have learned to avoid some familiar pitfalls.”
