Post-Game Press Conference from El Salvador

Head Coach Bob Bradley and Carlos Bocanegra address the media following the 2-2 draw with El Salvador:

IMHO, I would like to offer some constructive criticism. I would like to see Coach Bob show a little more honest emotion towards the team during and after the game. He can't be happy with the results and it would be nice for him to say so. Put the team and individual players on notice. Tell them publicly they did not play well and its unacceptable. Benching a player or two would not be bad either. No player should assume their spot is safe. Just my two cents.

I love the team and want to see them improve and meet all expectations. But if the team plays like that at the Confed Cup, we will get roasted.

on the contrary... I think the team gave a brave performance. And I think the USA got away with an amazing result considering being down two goals late. and if you had to point people out id say the coach made some great subs to put more energy into the game. my three cents

wasnt the prettiest of games but in the end I was a vary happy camper.
go torres go!

Bradley probably provides more constructive criticism to his team in private, but he certainly not to the press. What good would throwing a player under the bus do for the team? We would start falling apart. Yeah, we started out pretty rough, but it's pretty amazing that we came back from 2-0 to secure a draw. If we had a little more time, we would have definately made it a win.

I think that if Bradley feels any of the guys aren't performing well or to his standards, he won't play them as often. I think all of those guys realize their spots are up for the taking if a better player starts performing better.
