  • FourFourTwo has a tremendous "oral history" of Bruce Arena, as told by those close to him in the various stages of his career, setting the record straight on a coach many feel is misunderstood. Some of the best lines:

"He's got a lot of stories, and like many people, over time those stories get better because they veer further and further from the actual occurrence." – Sunil Gulati.

"This is going to sound very strange, but one of the reasons '06 looked as bad as some people have described it is because of Bruce, but in a good way. He set the bar very very high in '02." – U.S. Soccer CEO Dan Flynn
