Speaking in his familiar role as an analyst on ESPN, Twellman hammered away at the "utter embarrassment" of a United States team failing to qualify for next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.
Twellman did not blame Arena specifically, instead emphasizing that all of U.S. Soccer is at fault.
Former University of Miami president Donna Shalala, a member of the U.S. Soccer Federation Board of Directors, wrote on Twitter: "This morning 2-1 unacceptable".
A 1-2 loss against a side with nothing to play for, and when Concacaf (North and Central America and the Caribbean region) group winners Mexico lost 2-3 to Honduras and Panama stunned second-placed Costa Rica 2-1, the U.S. tumbled from third to fifth, out of even the play-offs against Australia next month.
The embarrassing loss eliminated the United States from the 2018 World Cup, marking the first time that the country will not represented on the biggest stage in the sport since 1986. "Belgium played Bosnia on a cow pasture, but we can't beat Trinidad with water on the field?"
"Look at the two goals we conceded: How freaky", he told the Post. "Does it get any more weird than that?" We had our chances. "I can't look anywhere else except inside our team".
Asked whether he has second-guessed himself about using the same lineup that started in the 4-0 victory over Panama four days earlier, Arena responded forcefully. That's not enough. CONCACAF has gotten stronger, partly because some of its best players now sharpen their skills in Major League Soccer. "To make any kind of insane changes would be foolish".

The Average Directional Index or ADX is technical analysis indicator used to discern if a market is trending or not trending. A reading under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal.
"If we're arguing Jurgen versus Bruce, we're missing the point", Martino added.
"We knew we were behind the eight-ball since last November". And Tuesday, a set of American players more talented and accomplished at club level than their predecessors failed to do what previous editions of the USMNT have done on six consecutive occasions - finish top three in the Hex.
However this experiment turns out, as the soccer folks in the usa have said for decades, it will take time for Americans to grow the game.
"They are a governing body that runs our national team programs".
For one thing, US Soccer has been bragging about this $100 million surplus they have obtained and while this isn't as sexy as a brand new headquarters in Los Angeles, I would spend a portion of the money on making it free to take coaching classes and obtain licenses and hire more scouts. That was a clear sign that our young players weren't good enough and created a huge void in our players' global development.
The MLS was proven to be a huge success in its new home in Atlanta, drawing more fans every game than Georgia Tech does for football and basketball combined.
"We're not catching up with the big countries in the world just because of what we've been doing the last five years". It's hard for even world class talent to overcome being asked to play in a back three for the first time without being adequately trained in the system, as Klinsmann had the USMNT do against Mexico.
Gulati and Arena's comments are unlikely to satisfy their critics however, many of whom feel that former manager Klinsmann was treated harshly when he was sacked after two losses past year.
