has sunil gulati in his sights

I've been patient but I am rapidly losing steam.I find myself having little patience for Berhalter. Less than I expected.
Berhalter came in with what is from all accounts a complex plan and vision. That's fine and well, but the plan is proving difficult to implement. We need to see that Berhalter can make adjustments to the realities of the situation. We've seen nothing on that front so far.
Berhalter seems to be a petty determined and stubborn guy. If this result isn't a come-to-Jesus moment for him, we're going to be in real trouble.
Another thing that irks me about Berhalter is his refusal to publicly acknowledge and grapple with the struggles of the team. He'll vaguely discuss progress, without citing evidence, and he'll wave away clear issues. That's one way to lose the fans and media faster.
