I really wanted to update this after another 1-0 loss by Jurgen Klinsmann and Co. So here are the 12 guys who have coached the USMNT for at least six games all-time and their goals for/goals against/record through their first six games as head coach.
Klinsmann’s two goals would be the second worst start all-time through six games and the fewest since Walter Giesler in 1948-49. And his one victory would be tied for the second fewest all-time through six games and the fewest since Lothar Osianer in 1986-88.
As for some other random stat factoids:
* The US is now 5-8-3 in 2011, guaranteeing its first losing year since 1997 (5-6-7).
* The two goals scored over the last six games is the fewest by the US over a six-game span since scoring only two goals between May 30, 1998 and January 24. 1999 (Steve Sampson’s last four games and Bruce Arena’s first two games as manager).
* And the last time the US scored two or fewer goals over a six-game span with the same manager was between June 27, 1992 and October 15, 1992 when they scored only two goals with Bora Milutinovic.
* The US has now lost is last seven games on European soil, its longest losing streak in Europe since losing nine straight between June 15, 1998 and June 21, 2003.
