Really interesting Tweets.

Lalas is basically saying the USMNT destroyed trust with the American fans and they owe us as a result... they also need to earn the trust back...

The thing about Kyrgios... he does a ton of charity. He’s also a huge Boston Celtics fan. In fact, he seems to love many American sports but he adores the Boston Celtics.

Maybe he just hates everyone affiliated with tennis.

I hear you but everyone knows his behavior isn’t typical Aussie, you know? I really wonder what his deal is though on the court. He’s SO good. He could win several majors if he’d just settle down. John McEnroe said he’s tried talking to him. His charity work tells you his behavior on the tennis court doesn’t match who he is in general. It’s a mystery. He really despises Nadal though.

Fair enough, I wouldn't care as much as if he was't Aussie though

I agree with Alexi. The team does owe us. The coaches have some of the blame, but the team has often let us down with their inconsistencies and not always playing as hard as they should. I am looking forward to them winning us back.

Of course she would support her friend...I really believe she is a genuine sweet person. I just hope the royal family and tabloids don't hurt her and her marriage.

Totally understand. I'd feel the same way if he was American.

I agree with him completely too.

It's obvious this is the case when some of their games do not even sell out. USWNT Friendly matches sell out. Some big USMNT matches do not even sell out. USWNT is the much more popular, embraced team and it's not even close. You can't even get a Rapinoe or Morgan jersey, everything is sold out, orders will take months and months before you can purchase again.

Losing and not making WC for the Men was a disaster. A complete disaster. JK failed this team above anything else. I hated him and understood he was darkness the second he fired Boca from being captain, kicked him off the team, punished Landon. It was so obvious he was a killer for this team and it just went downhill from there. But at the end of the day it's the players, not the coaches, that play on the field. Our World Cup path to qualification is so much easier than European teams having to make it. Even with the coaching and JK stripping so much of our identity... you have to win that game to quality. They did not. As a result, Americans pulled back some. Trust needs rebuilt.
