Must-See Trailer: We The Pharaohs

Bob Bradley's task at attempting to guide Egypt to the World Cup something unlike any other challenge an American soccer coach has faced around the world. Considering the state of the sport in Egypt following the riots at Port Said this past February and how the national team can be used as a rallying point for Egyptian people, Bradley's task is about more than just simple wins and losses. 

The former U.S. men's national team coach's quest is being tracked in a documentary called "We The Pharaohs," which is being shot by filmmaker Jeffrey Plunkett, one of Bradley's former players at Princeton. Here is the trailer for the early parts of the film, which will be completed next fall and is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2014. Enjoy:

    “Football’s not a matter of life and death….it’s more important than that” Bill Shankly said that.

    Love stories like this, where football is more, so much more.

  3. Mig22 says:

    Quality. Simply a quality human being.

    I pulling for Egypt to qualify obviously but also to heal and stabilize. Every little bit helps.

  4. NYC Smiths says:


    Proud of him, proud of his kid.

  5. Austin says:

    All of Egypt’s problems politically and in soccer would be solved by one simple solution:


  6. JrLaing23 says:

    This is a great story to be told. Lets hope they qualify. It will be great for that country and for a classy Bob Bradley. You may not have always agreed with his coaching decisions but he is a good man.

    suddenly I find myself a Bob Bradley fan… I’m in bizarro world!

  10. Old School says:

    Bob Bradley has always been a man that resembles a militant & steady aura.

    He’s literally, the perfect man for this job, at this time. Egypt is lucky.

  11. Ben says:

    radiates, perhaps?

  12. Rlw2020 says:

    At 1:51 it looked like they had 2 bObs, that would be unstopable!

  13. PaulTheOctopus says:

    ALADEEN MOTHERF#$%^&!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. TheFrenchOne says:

  16. Kevin_Amold says:

    Must-see indeed. I can’t wait for this to come out.

  17. Old School says:

    that works too.

  18. Nick says:

    Good luck to Egypt and Bob Bradley class act. Hope they qualify.

  19. Gnarls says:

    This story begs to be told. And it will attract a broader audience than football diehards. Bob Bradley finds himself at the flash point of football, politics and history. Ooooh, I cannot wait.

  20. Reid says:

    It would be pretty nice if beIN would show Egypts games. I think they would get pretty good #’s in the US.

  21. CGold says:

    Lets just hope that more networks pick up beIN..

  26. borat says:

    Bob wanted this all along… He is genius. Maybe he’ll be our next Ron Paul.

  27. Gnarls says:

    True that. No luck for TWC subscribers.

  28. Andy says:

    The Bradley’s are true American Heros. Father and Son doing big things abroad. I really hope they qualify, and I think it’s likely. They have one of the more talented African sides.

    great work BB! proud of ya

  31. CplDaniel says:

    Hey, my wife uses that product!

  32. CplDaniel says:

    I’d watch. Taken a keen interest ever since that SI photo-blog or photo-story about Bob in Egypt.

  33. Artie says:

    In Egypt as in the United States, Revolution = empty stadium.

  34. Mig22 says:

    holy crap, that’s funny. Inappropriate as hell but really, really funny.

  35. ttorque says:

    Not hard to see how this man was able to motivate our guys to punch above their weight so often. Many didn’t like him because he was quiet and not much for cameras and interviews. Bradley was about the business of the game. Now we’ve got a windbag at the helm that loves the sound and smell of his own BS. Save us…
