"F" = "F**king Awesome".

Seriously though, well done nezo for working with kids to improve their skills.

Unlike a lot of Europeans, I would like to see more Americans (and not freeloaders like Gerrard) break through. Progress has been made but it's inevitably slow.

The States produces a decent flow of keepers but my theory is that this is essentially due to the three main US sports involving hand to ball contact.

Brad Friedel, who retired last month, was a seriously excellent keeper IMO as well as being a top, top professional. If he wants to, he'll get a top coaching job easily.

Tim Howard has his "moments" but is also damn good (see last year's WC).

Outfield is more complicated but Dempsey has had a good carrer and my personal favourite was McBride, a highly underrated player (by the English).
