    True. But with the imminent change in USSF's leadership coming, I don't think anyone was going to support Gulati making another hire until his future was determined. And then after Cordero took over, it took approximately forever to get the GM hired and then they doubled down on the delay by allowing Stewart to work with the Union until October 1st. And that's my biggest beef ... that not only did Cordero take from March until freaking June to hire Stewart, he then allowed Stewart to stick on his current job for another 90 days. That's just a ridiculous lack of urgency, given the scenario.

    And there's absolutely no guarantee that they'll end up hiring Berhalter or Vermes, or some other MLS coach. Stewart has kept mum, but the other people on the search committee have made noises that could be interpreted to make you believe that there's a much wider net being cast .... words like International or National team experience have been used. At this point I'm just going to sit back and see what happens. I'm fairly certain there's no big name International boss for there US at the end of this process, but nothing is a given at this point.

    I know there wasn't much drama involved at the top, but CONCACAF has decided their three Womens World Cup participants for France 2019. The US won the qualifying tournament with a truly impressive 2-0 defeat of Canada, who also qualified. Then Jamaica made history by qualifying for their first WWC in penalties over Panama.

    Again ... business as usual for the US and Canada, but big freaking news for Jamaica. Congrats to the Reggae Girls.

    And Panama, with their 17 year old Golden Gloves winning keeper, goes into an intercontinental playoff against Argentina for another spot. Julie Ertz won the Golden Ball, Alex Morgan won th Golden Boot (on a goal scored from an offside position) and the US won the Fair Play award.
