Even the NY Post has figured out our issues, why can't RB? https://nypost.com/2...-past-coaching/


I think our new man in charge is aware. How much is RedBull going to allow him to do about it?

Think people are lying to themselves that Armas would have been significantly more successful with a better squad. Despite all the years with the club, he clearly never bought in to the style of play that is expected

Completely agree that Armas was a contributing factor, but a couple of more million in annual spending could have put us over the top under Marsch and certainly wouldn't hurt under whoever our next coach is.

We're not asking them to spend like ATL or LAFC or Inter Miami, but being at least midtier in spending would be a significant improvement.

Yea, we were probably a winger or two away from winning in the Marsch years. Most of his teams were really balanced, we just needed a little more in the attack.

Why not? If RB do not want to spend,
then sell to someone who does!

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

Even just have a good backup RB/LB like Egbo in 2018, instead of having to rely on Lade would have made a big difference.

2015 team was the only team we had that i think had a championship level attack under Marsch

Slow 1st half, but it got better as the 2nd half progressed. 


RIP Guillermo Romulo, Alexander Francis Orig, Celenio Eleazar, and my Mom, Resurreccion Eleazar.

 

RIP Cesar Castello, Mike Vallo, Glenn Stampiglia, Bob Paquette, and Warren Lee

More DC getting worse as the game went on,
than us playing better.

Tonight was the first time in a long, long time we got to play against a team who was chasing pretty recklessly at the end of the match.

Not sure I'd read anything into the tons of chances in the last 15 minutes or so.
Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

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.

The only thing you can read into it is that despite all these chances we still managed not to score more.

what I can read into that is PRESS MORE!  

or even lay back invite teams forward and selectively PRESS MORE. 

I can also read into that we have probably a USL Champsion ship winning team here since that was about DC's level yesterday.
