Here it is. The Red USMNT Jersey’s are officially out. The new motto which is yet to be decided will presumably be on the back, but here is what the kit will look like for this week. Pretty much what we expected, a red version of the World Cup kit, but I’m a big fan of the look.

Sunil Gulati talked to US Soccer about a few stereotypes of soccer, along with the “reasons the US will never get soccer” that you get to see on every internet forum. I hate posting these kinds of things because I purely think they’re absolutely moronic things to say. Is soccer a men’s game? Isn’t soccer an immigrants game? Also this might be a little old (it seems to be pre-world cup), but I feel almost obligated to put up anything I can from someone in Sunil Gulati’s position.

CONCACAF President and FIFA Vice President Jack Warner will face a FIFA ethics committee for again selling World Cup tickets on the black market. He did the same thing during the Germany World Cup in 2006 but kept his job and apparently his right to do it again. Warner was again caught in a ticket selling scandal during the 2010 World Cup. Warner planned to buy tickets from FIFA for the 2010 World Cup and to then sell them to different European agencies making much more than the tickets are worth. This man practically runs both of the organizations that are above the USSF, and he is still willing to make these blatant attempts to make money off of his job. As much as we harp against Sunil Gulati, he is definitively not in it for the money (Gulati does not get paid by USSF.) Jack Warner seems to be doing whatever he thinks he can to make extra money off of his position.

I’ve put up a few of these interviews from US Soccer, as usual they are hard hitting interviews. The most “new” information to come out of it is that Johnny has a little trouble speaking Spanish, and hasn’t talked much about the US-Mexico rivalry with his predominantly Mexican teammates. No matter the depth of the questions or quality of the reporting if they keep putting these out, I will keep reading them and posting them, purely because its cool to hear from a few voices that we don’t get much from very often.

The Shin Guardian got an interview with USSF President Sunil Gulati, who specifically talked on the Striker issue which has caused so much of a fuss in recent years. Jozy Altidore is not a terrible player, he may not be a great player, but just because he hasn’t scored in 7 World Cup games doesn’t mean he is completely incompetent. Of course Gulati talks on other subjects too, all equally worth reading about.
TSG: A striker got fouled this evening [Juan Agudelo against Chile]. A striker scored [Teal Bunbury]. Much has been made about that a US striker has not scored at the past two World Cups.
But then you look at a country like Paraguay. A very successful country on the international front.
For the past two World Cups they had less collective goals than the US and a striker only scored one of them.
Do you think the US striker situation is scapegoated a little too much?
SG: I think when you talk about a total of seven games it is a very small sample size.
We won our group without having a forward score so there is obviously other ways to win games.
Clearly you would like the players up top to help in that area and I’m sure they’ll help in that area in qualifying.

An Interview with Pia Sundhage
Apparently there’ll be a ton more TV coverage of the Women’s World Cup this summer.
The USWMNT is starting to do things that we’ve been asking the USMNT to do for a while, by improving youth development. Which mean’s we can’t blame Sunil Gulati for it too much anymore.

After all of the political unrest in Egypt recently, the USMNT friendly which was supposed to take place next week was cancelled.
“We were excited about the opportunity to play against Egypt, but due to the current situation, all parties agreed it was best to cancel the match,” USSF president Sunil Gulati said in a release announcing the news. “We appreciate the efforts of the Egyptian Football Association and the US State Department as we worked through this situation.”

“There will be a third kit for Gold Cup this summer as confirmed by Gulati hollering back to his marketing team in the back of the room for confirmation. It will be a red jersey.”- The Shin Guardian
According to this article about a conference which USSF did for a few select fans and TSG (which is very cool, and if you want to read about it click the link, I recommend you do,) but the issue at hand here is that we have red jerseys for the Gold Cup. The supporters groups, at U.S. Soccer games will again match the team they put on the field. They wore Red Jersey’s most recently in 2006, but 1998 and 2000 also saw Red Jersey’s. before that there was the 1994 jersey, which I guess would technically be a red kit. Of course before then they hadn’t been used since 84, so it was news when they showed up. Apparently they’re back now, as a third kit, and hopefully look good and stay around. Presumably the Red Kit will look like the one that they announced before the World Cup, but haven’t worn yet, which is the image above.
>>For a solid history of USMNT Jersey’s check out http://project2010.wordpress.com/2009/10/13/better-know-a-kit-a-history-of-the-modern-u-s-soccer-jersey/. It’s a little old so it’s not up to the most recent jersey’s, but it’s very cool nonetheless.
