Complain all we want about our owners, the Rapids fans would trade with us in a heartbeat

I can't believe anyone would hire him to be a head coach. Assistant, whatever, but head coach is ridiculous.

That is the most Colorado hire possible isn't it?

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

Do they need a Sporting Director or an assistant coach? There is a perfect candidate who just freed up...

Well, we did!

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

At that time, at least it made some sense.  

 

Now there's a track record.

Well, somehow, someone in Colorado has convinced its FO that Armas can succeed there. 🤷

Wouldn't surprise me if he was the only candidate interested.  It's a crap job and could be seen as a resume killer.  For someone like Armas, it might be all that's available to him.

There's gotta be a hungry assistant somewhere dying to prove themselves.  The answer should never be Armas.

Armas struggles when he has to think outside the box. He knows the marsch system.

He just has to implement it. When he tried to go outside of it, he failed.

However, pressing at that attitude will be a challenge. Colorado would have been better off hiring a coach that focused more on possession. I think it's a bad fit.

It's more than that. He can't motivate. Nearly every player underperformed compared to Jesse. And immediately things got better with Carnell

For a couple weeks, maybe. It doesn't take that long to adjust to Denver's altitude, and it's not that severe of an adjustment anyway.
