Great Landon Donovan chant by AO NYC. Video validated by Stanky Leg.

He’s Landon Donovan

He’s All-American

He Scores for Everton

And Beats the Mexicans

Classic.

Another winner from the AO Chant Contest, an ode to Tim Howard & an ode to Timmy from South Park alllll at the same time. 

I don’t think I could type this out better than he can say it, or we can sing it so leggo!

This chant, and the one above won the AO Chant Contest in January, and I believe this is the first US MNT game where the chants will be used.

Ti-meh, Ti-meh, Ti-meh, Ti-meh, Ti-meh, Ti-meh, TI-MEH!

That worked out.

Classic American Outlaws song sung over and over as US MNT team games. Doesn’t mean it isn’t fun. Any song that includes a bounce is automatically addicting. We love ya, that’s for sure.

We love ya, We Love ya, We love ya

and where you go we’ll follow, we’ll follow, we’ll follow

Cause we support the US, the US, the US

And that’s the way we like it, we like it, we like it

BOUNCE

Pick up one of our Chapter scarves and tshirts today at the match. $20 for the scarves (normally $30) and $15 for the tshirts. The scarves are double sided, meaning you get both colors for one scarf. They are very high quality. I was really impressed to get my hands on one of these, and it’s worth bringing the $20 to get one today, because they’re normally $30 and they’re worth every penny. Excellent material provided by Ruffneck Scarves.

Hope to see you all at the game today!

Jurgen Klinsmann will usher in a new era for U.S. Soccer

Jurgen Klinsmann has been appointed the new manager of the United States.

Klinsmann had a distinguished playing career, highlighted by winning the World Cup in 1990 and European championship in 1996 with Germany, but has had only fleeting spells in management, first with Germany and later Bayern.

He has also lived primarily in the United States since retiring from playing, and has frequently been linked with the national team job and vacancies in Major League Soccer.

I am proud and honoured to be named the head coach of the US Men’s National Team,” said Klinsmann, who will take charge of his first match on August 10 against rivals Mexico.

"I would like to thank the US Soccer Federation for the opportunity, and I’m excited about the challenge ahead.

I am looking forward to bringing the team together for our upcoming match against Mexico and starting on the road toward qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.”

Klinsmann enjoyed an outstanding playing career that lasted 17 years and included spells with Stuttgart, Inter Milan, Monaco, Tottenham and Bayern Munich.

He scored 47 goals in 108 appearances for Germany and West Germany, and retired from playing in 1998, and took his first management job with Germany in 2004.

He led them to third place in the 2006 World Cup on home soil, but stepped down from the role after the tournament. Two years later, he took charge of Bayern, reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League, but left after one season.

Klinsmann will be introduced at a press conference in New York on Monday.

I can’t wait to see a lot more of this in the coming years. This is an exciting time for U.S. soccer. The kind of influence Klinsmann will bring is greatly needed in the game today, if the United States wants to ‘play with the big boys’ then we’re going to have to grow up a little. There needs to be more US MNT players starting for bigger European clubs in bigger European leagues, because the talent pool is getting stronger all over the globe, not just in the United States. Teenaged talent the likes of Messi, Fabregas, Aguero, Neymar, Pique, Chicharito, Marin, and others are becoming world class quality by the age of 23 is quickly becoming the norm.

This is a good step of trying to keep up, especially with COMMEBOL contemplating a CONCACAF merge which would make it very difficult for the US to qualify for FIFA events. I think Jurgen Klinsmann is exactly the sort of manager players will aspire to play for & please. I think he gives hope to other players who were on the fringe with Bob Bradley including Benny Feilhaber who I thought was the best 3 players for the U.S. during the world cup, despite because relegated to the position of a substitute. It’s a new dawn in the USA, and I can’t wait to see what comes next.
