A BBC report (so if you go back to our transfer rumor equation piece) is out suggesting that Martin Jol (heavens forbid) and Sven Goran Eriksson are the lead candidates for the Fulham manager role vacated by Roy Hogdson.
According to the report–this not from the book of we told you so–it suggests that Bob Bradley’s contract may be extended by USSF.
Neil Buethe–who is doing yoeman’s work traveling with the woman’s team–was nice enough to provide some feedback and context here.
“I provided the BBC writer with a statement yesterday that he seems to have interpretted incorrectly. The BBC report is misleading.”
Per Buethe, Bob Bradley, Dan Flynn and Sunil are in preliminary discussions right now with what is best for U.S. Soccer.
It would be incorrect to characterize these discussions as “extension talks.”
