  • Mr. Arena went to New York City yesterday and talked with reporters: "In March 2015, Jurgen Klinsmann sat in a hotel conference room in Philadelphia and explained to reporters — in a presentation complete with a PowerPoint element — his vision for how the United States national team would crest toward the 2018 World Cup. On Tuesday, sitting in a hotel conference room in New York, Bruce Arena—one week after replacing Klinsmann as the team’s coach—did the same. The differences were considerable, and a particularly noticeable one was the importance of data and analytics to each coach."

  • "We're not gonna look like Barcelona," Arena said.

  • "He still has a big tank," is the most accurate quote about Jermaine Jones.

  • "United States international Lynden Gooch was stretchered off with an ankle injury while playing for Sunderland's under-23 side on Monday. Gooch, 20, appeared to land awkwardly on his left ankle following a challenge in the 27th minute. Sunderland manager David Moyes came out of the stands to check on Gooch as he was being treated, before he was carried off the pitch."
