Very surprising and poignant comments from Stu Holden

Maybe this is now old, but I just read Stu Holden’s commentary on the Haiti game this past Saturday. There has been some talk that Holden could be a great spokesman for U.S. soccer. His writing only seeks to affirm that.

This article, it’s sincerity and honesty, was something you might expect from a gracious ambassador for U.S. soccer, specifically his feelings immediately upon scoring the equalizer.

    Saying he thought the team “took [its] foot off the gas” goes right to my blog post on here the day after the game. The US players have no right to think they can cruise to any victory (except perhaps over Grenada) and Bob Bradley is there to make sure that doesn’t happen. Unfortunately, both player and coach malfunctioned in that regard on Saturday.
