There’s a lot of choices for this one.

Welcome to Community Corner, where we ask some questions and have the community pick an answer and stand by it. This week, we discuss the failures of U.S. Soccer and we ask a simple question: who do you blame?

Of course, to answer the question, you may have to ask yourself what bugs you the most about U.S. Soccer, and what their biggest failure could be. Is it the United States Men’s National Team not qualifying for the World Cup? Is it poor communication of the announcement of matches? Or could it be that you think the USWNT are not playing up to their potential and are losing ground to other nations?

Whatever that reason is, sound it out here. The failure that you think is biggest could have a person behind the scenes that is most responsible for it. Sure, Sunil Gulati is an easy target as the former president of the U.S. Soccer Federation. Carlos Cordeiro could also be to blame for something that has continued to fester during his tenure. Or, you may just break it down to a coach or a player that really embodies the problems our federation faces.

So, let’s kick it to you guys. Hit the comments and tell us who you think needs to be taken to task for U.S. Soccer’s biggest problems.
