    Okay, I'll bite. 102/7/8 is an amazing stat line...almost unheard of here's the stat win/tied/loss of every WNT coach.

    You get what I'm saying? The worst winning percentage was 734! A rec coach could have coached all of these teams and had the similar success. why? because our players are better than theirs...plain and simple. But in reality, and try to be objective..how much has the game evolved since Anson took over in 86 till now? They kick and run a little less, they're still not very technical but they are a little more improved on the technical side. Now since 1986, how much better have the other teams gotten? If you look at the possession in each of the games played in this years WC, the USA was dominated. The teams have vastly improved since the last women's world cup. Argentina looked very good for a first time, Germany again much improved, France played a lot better, England, Holland...they all have improved. They main problem is they're having trouble scoring and just give it time...once they get the scoring accompanied with their possession...it's gonna be lights out.

    What the USA team needs is an infusion of a coach that's gonna develop the younger kids so that once they get of age, they'll be able to bring something special to the USWNT. Look how our goals were scored in this WWC? How many penalties vs. manufactured goals? take half of those away and US is in big trouble...(not including Thailand-bless their hearts)

    I'm pretty sure the rest of the world will catch up and pass us when Europe and South America places more value on the women's game.

    IMO the women have a chance to stay on top with the right training/coaching as they don't lose their best athletes and skilled players to Football, basketball and baseball like the men do.
    Our men are hopeless unless the previous mentioned sports go out of business.
