LOS ANGELES - Chivas USA replacement team LAFC announced, on Thursday, that they hired former Chivas USA head coach Bob Bradley with the mandate of, "Don't turn this squad into Chivas USA."
Bob Bradley, the former Chivas USA manager, stated that he was, "Excited to get started with this mostly new adventure of running a second club in Los Angeles that hopefully won't dissolve into acrimony and bitter divorce, this time."
Reportedly, Bradley is looking at bringing back Sacha Kljestan, Jonathan Bornstein, Tim Regan and Ante Razov to flesh out his lineup, despite the latter being 43 and retired.
"Chivas USA was 11 years ago, hopefully no one remembers that," stated Bradley to our reporter. "I'm back to bring a new second, second (to me) Los Angeles club to a competent status before using this notoriety to replace Bruce Arena as manager of the United States national team after he fails during the upcoming World Cup."
Insider sources indicate that the order of succession has already been set within US Soccer as Bradley, Arena, and Sigi Schmid return back to the early 2000s with their success and failures.
"It stanks like 2004/2006 up in here," stated a jubilant Sunil Gulati as he drank limoncello out of the Gold Cup. "Let's start the cycle again. DO NOT BREAK THE CYCLE. Klinsmann will come back in 2024!"
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as everything that is old is new again.
