Top 10: Arena's best wins


Bruce Arena is arguably the greatest soccer coach in United States history. He further staked his claim on that title by earning his 100th career MLS win last Saturday, joining Sigi Schmid, Bob Bradley and Steve Nicol as the only coaches to reach that watermark.

In honor of this milestone, we salute Mr. Almighty with this week's Top 10: Bruce Arena's All-time Greatest Wins.

In golf, it’s called a Mulligan. In Monopoly it’s the “Get Out of Jail Free” card. Kids call it a “do-over,” whatever game they’re playing.

The next American goalkeeping sensation is D.C. United teenager Bill Hamid. At least, that’s according to the last player who carried the title.

“He’s one that has a lot of potential, but it’s almost too early to tell,” US backup goalkeeper Brad Guzan told last week. “I think he’s a fantastic goalkeeper and a fantastic athlete, and I think if he can keep going in the right direction, he’ll be alright.”
