There is stability in that roll. No questions entering the season. Sigi is the guy. Let's build it from there.
Sigi, Dempsey, Alonso, Evans.
Thats the back bone of this team right now, that is what we build it around.
what are you building on?
a notoriously ineffective coach with a midfield that was overrun and a defense that was left chasing shadows by division rivals.
yeah, they made a call... it was a bad one.
I'm calling you out here Smurf. if you want to be taken seriously as a fan.. hell, if you want to be taken seriously as a franchise, as a league, a coach like Sigi needs to be shown the door. what other soccer league in the world would allow a similar situation to continue unchanged? this is the sh-- that happens when you let supporters choose their GM.
one cannot rip on Timbers fans for being pessimestic about overcoming RSL then turn around and try and endorse this move or line of thinking. Before you know it you're the soccer version of the Mariners. The Sounders were blown away by their bitter rivals. and I mean blown away. outplayed, outcoached, outclassed. and yet they cared little enough about yet another early bow out of the playoffs by rehiring the same manager.
Caleb Porter was out there, and the Timbers got him. There are a whole generation of coaches similar to him available. Seattle chose to stay with someone who consistently is outcoached for the sake of consistency...
