Not a lot of "technical" American players in MLS

Bradley (old version, not so much recently), Klestjan, Lletjet, Feilhaber and that's about it domestically. I have been impressed by what I've seen of Wood in the Bundesliga and clearly Pulisic has skill. We just aren't deep with that kind of talent. The kid at Spurs and Gooch have some ability, too.

It is interesting that for all his faults as a coach, I believe Klinsmann's goal was to develop more of a technical side as opposed as our historic strength as a defend and counter team.

Arena is more practical and will revert to a more historic approach. i don't believe, even with our European-based talent, that we have enough technical quality (and depth) to prevail in a controlled build approach
