Fjords, Family and Fond Memories
With Andrew and David off to Brazil, the guys celebrate their last episode for awhile with Stabaek boss Bob Bradley, who talks Norway, Egypt and the 2010 World Cup. Why don't Americans get respect in Europe? What moment sticks out in South Africa? Did the US peak at the 2009 Confederations Cup? Bradley graciously gives his thoughts on all the above and more. Plus, is it OK that Jurgen Klinsmann says the US have no chance to win the World Cup?
Meanwhile, in MLS, David Villa is headed to Melbourne City for a few months to prepare for New York City FC duty, the Portland Timbers might be staking their MLS Cup aspirations on a DP defender and Uri Rosell's sale to Sporting Lisbon means progress. Then, as always, the guys dip into the #ETR mailbag, but not before taking Nick Firchau down a peg or two.
