Vlatko Andonovski's decision-making failed the #USWNT in Tokyo
Steph Yang | Horrible Soccer Goose @thrace
I think it's interesting Vlatko got asked about #uswnt not "looking like itself" and Megan Rapinoe jumped in quickly to say "I just think the players have a lot to look at ourselves." I think the players know they haven't executed, even if the buck ultimately stops at the coach.
You can debate a lot of Vlatko’s decision making… but Tierna has had a better tournament than Abby and that was not THE issue today.
Alguns pontos: -Canadá é a definição de seleção CHATA. Sabe desacelerar o jogo, não da p subestimar, mas não dá pra exaltar. Sentimento que fica é frustrante.
-Curiosa pra saber como será a renovação dos EUA, tem que mudar muita coisa, e a manutenção do trabalho do Vlatko…
Yes the players have been shit but vlatko doing a hockey line substitution when he only needed to take tobin off, left horan who was getting spun every which way on, had one midfielder on the bench and didn’t bring them on till the 80th minute like ????
Vlatko: Going to bring sophisticated new tactics and style of play to the USWNT
The tactics: https://t.co/wOj8KI4nI7
Vlatko acts like he isn’t the coach of the uswnt… like what do u mean u don’t know why the team is performing like this????
There will be a long time to process this but, considering this wasn't just bad luck and the #USWNT looked poor throughout the tournament, it must be asked: Does Vlatko Andonovski keep his job? Jill Ellis stayed after an even worse Olympics, but she had won a World Cup...
Questions have to be asked.
Of Vlatko. Of the players.
But not tonight. Be gracious losers. Canada 🇨🇦 has waited 20 years for tonight. This isn’t about us. Celebrate Sinc the way you celebrated Messi getting Argentina 🇦🇷 to the Copa America Final.
biggest uswnt criminals;
- jill ellis and the megan rapinoe double sub in the rio 2016 Olympics
- vlatko andonovski and taking off alex morgan, author of the infamous “it’s in! Alex Morgan has done it” in a semifinal against canada in the tokyo 2020 Olympics
winning only one game in an entire tournament is just UNACCEPTABLE sorry fire vlatko immediately
vlatko needs to make some serious changes after this mess of a tournament…. i’ll be shocked if they can even pull bronze
the usa has never lost an Olympic game kristie mewis has played in and I think vlatko should’ve considered that fact more!
vlatko chasing a goal against canada in an Olympic semifinal game…. If only there was a player who made a name for themselves scoring on canada in stoppage time in an Olympic semifinal….
The one thing about this team that never needed to be changed was their mentality. And imo Vlatko completely wiped that out. They didn’t look like they were ever having fun, no joy, no cohesion on the field.
20 year streak ended lifelong bloodline hex activated vlatko you are done and dusted
'uswnt is old and that's why they failed' 'no it's vlatko's fault!' dw guys it can be both of these things
Today’s Starting XI is the FIFTH DIFFERENT STARTING lineup deployed by head coach Vlatko Andonovski at the 2020 Olympics
= 5 games of discontinuity
= 5 games of inconsistency
= 5 games of lackluster play
= 5 games of disconnect
Por su historia y todo lo que le han dado a este equipo, muchas jugadoras merecen que su última competencia internacional grande sea con una medalla colgada al cuello. Espero sea el caso, por ellas.
Alguien que le avise a Vlatko que no puede empatar el jueves nomás.
Megan Rapinoe wondered about the "joy" that was missing from #USWNT at #Olympics. That, and goals. You can reach for the easy excuse and say the team was too old, but the young players struggled, too. Who's to blame? #USAvCAN https://t.co/PZQsguJ9U5
it makes no sense why vlatko had a line up that worked with christen starting and kristie mewis in the midfield and yet benched both of them when it came down to it
Think #Vlatko needs to go watch The Mighty Ducks trilogy before Thursday's bronze medal game, yes it's the Olympics, a high pressure environment but at the end of the day, it's still a game and if you're not having fun playing the game, you're not gonna win #Tokyo2020 #USWNT https://t.co/r2UD9kTOZT https://t.co/costiOKRTJ
Vlatko was overrated as a club coach. Won two championships with Holiday, ARod, and Buczkowski all at their peak. What has he ever done besides scout well?
I remember Julie Foudy saying “He (Vlatko) now has all the players he wants. The problem is managing the different personalities.”
Someone explain to me why dumbass Vlatko never played Press of the left, where she clearly plays her best? Was it all because he needed to play tired useless Pinoe on the left every game ? #USWNT https://t.co/dcMo9hujLv
Vlatko really needs to start to develop a new target 9 & I think Trinity is an answer for him. Imma just need WAS to play her at that position more. I know they already have Hatch, but…
