U.S. doesn't want revenge vs. Trinidad and Tobago after World Cup woe. It just wants to win the Gold Cup

BEREA, Ohio -- "Revenge is for suckers. I've been griftin' for 30 years, I never got any."

Paul Newman's character Henry Gondorff said it in the movie "The Sting," and the same sentiment holds true for the U.S. men's national team ahead of its Gold Cup group stage game against Trinidad and Tobago on Saturday night.

It was the Soca Warriors who defeated the U.S. 2-1 on that infamous night in Couva, Trinidad in 2017, a result that knocked the Americans out of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup....

Berhalter's plan for his U.S. team: balance, structure and learning how to 'disorganize' opponents

CHULA VISTA, Calif. -- From the moment Gregg Berhalter was hired as manager of the U.S. men's national team, the questions about style began. After all, his tenure with the Columbus Crew revealed a team that prized possession and regularly ranked in the top third in the league in terms of chances created.

There has also long been a craving for the U.S. to not only win but win well, even in the face of a player development system that doesn't regularly crank out the kind of players who lend themselves...

A 10-letter word to describe the competitive spirit of the USMNT camp? Crosswords

CHULA VISTA, Calif. -- For his first camp as manager of the U.S. men's national team, Gregg Berhalter instituted a rule: no cell phones in the dining area. The idea was that he wanted the 28 players in attendance to talk with one another and bond over meals rather than have their heads buried in their phones. Little did Berhalter know that the players would find a low-tech way to put their own twist on meal time: crossword puzzles.

"They've kind of blown up over the past two weeks here," midfielder...

MLS Hot Stove: Will Almiron leave Atlanta? Is Vela going to Barca? What's next for Gio in LA?

By next week, training camp will have opened for every one of the 24 teams in MLS. A few have already opened but while players are preparing to begin the real grind of preseason, the process of assembling rosters continues.

Here's the latest from the MLS Hot Stove.

Almiron talks are 'very slow'

There are two weeks left until the close of the winter transfer window in England, and the clock is ticking on the much-anticipated move of Atlanta United midfielder Miguel Almiron to the Premier League....

Christian Pulisic returns, Bobby Wood struggles as U.S. beaten handily by England

In the penultimate game of 2018 -- and the penultimate game for interim head coach Dave Sarachan -- the United States fell to England 3-0 at Wembley Stadium in London. The game was marked by a decided gap in quality between the two teams and another disjointed performance by a USMNT still in the middle of a transition.

Positives

Beyond the simple fact that the United States were able to get a significant number of their young players on the field against England, a second-half improvement in a comprehensive...

Wil Trapp takes his chance in new-look U.S. midfield

CARY, N.C. -- For Wil Trapp, a spot on the U.S. men's national team has long seemed just beyond his reach. Central midfield has long been the deepest position in the player pool, making it difficult for the Columbus Crew SC captain to break through.

Further, on the rare occasions when he was called in, Trapp seemed an odd fit. Jurgen Klinsmann memorably tried him at outside midfield during one January camp, with subpar results.

But over the last three months, Trapp has won the trust of interim coach...
