He may have to trade that look for a suit and tie
The Cottagers are still looking for a coach with Alan Curbishley turning them down and now Bob Bradley is the name mentioned the most.
Fulhamerica’s long association with the US national team is already well established. But Bob Bradley? A coach who built his cache in the hitherto insular world of US soccer – coaching varsity teams, MLS clubs like Chivas, and now the US national team in a career spanning over two decades.
To get into the Premiership which ranks as the toughest in the world at this late a stage? Even Roy Hodgson whose replacement the Cottagers seek had to globe trot to get to his place in the Premiership.
Just one point, Bradley did not get the US team up to speed for a full 90 minutes and they suffered mental lapses of the sort giving up ridiculously cheap goals in the opening minutes – that is one of the biggest knocks on his resume. The US took the opportunity to turn in some scintillating comebacks but that cannot be credited to the coaching. Fulham might be a more unforgiving place- English fans do not hold back. Still it is flattering to find yourself as conjecture for the title of the first US coach of a club in the top European leagues.
