No idea who the guy is, but his resume reflects a NYRBII guy.
Hopefully a diamond in the rough, but so frustrating that they use first team roster spots on guys with limited experience. It's not like MLS Next Pro has salary caps, so why not sign him there for the year, see how he performs then move him up?
Shows that we aren't serious about getting veteran, reliable guys that we need at this time.
Im sympathetic to the injuries/suspensions but Strubers system looks like this regardless of who is on the field. Failing because the team lacks the quality is different than failing because the system hasnt evolved in 3 seasons.
The ceiling is probably what the team did last season and it still took wonder goals rather than repeatable scoring chances.
Well if the club was waiting for a reason to sack him 2 pts in 3 matches vs. two Western conference opponents at home and the worst team in the East away should be enough. If hes not sacked this week, he may never be.
The standards at RBNY are so unbelievably poor. There is no one to hold MdG, Hamlett, and now Struber accountable for their poor job performance. Its really deflating stuff as a long term fan to know that winning is not a priority and there is nothing that will change in the short or long term.
Even his biggest detractors give him credit for his defensive schemes.
4th in shots doesnt impress me when so many of arent quality.
The XG is inflated bc of the number of shots. A better stat would be where rank in quality scoring chances. Im not saying wed be last.
Im not basing this on anything from the Houston match bc I didnt watch it.
I just dont enjoy the soccer hes got this team playing. Im glad there are some of you out there that do.
I cant imagine there are people that do. Especially when you consider the different iteration of teams under Marsch during the development of the high press system. Those teams played beautiful attacking soccer and then the high press was beautiful in its own way.
Every home match is generally a repeat of the previous for at least the past 1+ seasons. Teams know exactly how to get their desired result.
