Armchair Analyst: The first lesson of Coaching 101 and the evolution of Bruce Arena

Analyst: Coaching 101 & the evolution of Bruce Arena
MLSsoccer.com

There is a persistent fiction about LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena, one that's been around at least since his first spin at the head of the US national team.

Bruce, the kids say, is married to the 4-4-2. He is king of the 1-0 result, a cautious and dour master of futebol de resultados at the expense of pretty much anything resembling aesthetic achievement. He is regressive, reactionary and refuses to experiment. "BunkerBall" is a pejorative that many in US soccer fandom instead call "BruceBall."
