I hope Klinsmann's track record doesn't surprise you He is an awful coach from a tactical perspective, but a great team manager. I hoped he'd know that and get help with the tactical adjustments.
Admittedly, he also has to deal with a change in playing style and ageing of a good bunch of players in the team. Changes take time and he is probably setting the US team up to reach a knock out phase without luck.
You'll only see what he tore down behind the scenes in a few years.
