Dyer has turned into a full blown shill for Armas lately

 

He's playing ball cuz he wants the latest F1 scoops.

Don't agree with "not a deficient offseason" (we'll see if the RB and GK will start, and a U17 LB is nice but hardly guaranteed to contribute this year).

But Dyer has a point that it's a bit weird if people are simultaneously angry about 1) not signing players AND 2) Armas not explicitly saying we can win MLS Cup. Not sure how many such people there are, mind you.


But you can be angry about 1) not signing players AND 2) not having a team that is capable of winning MLS Cup.

Especially in light of Denis statements in November that: a) MLS Cup was the goal and; b) that we had money to spend to bring in talent to help us toward that goal.

Now its we are focusing on the process, and we will add someone only if theyre the right fit, which is apparently harder than finding the holy grail.

Certainly, that would make sense; but it's not what Dyer is questioning/arguing against.

hes saying you cant be angry at a coach because the coach agrees with you that he doesn't have the talent to win the Cup (though Armas doesnt really say that, he just said that it isn't what they are focused on at the moment).

I don't think its weird at all, you'll find conflicting opinions on almost every topic in the world if you browse social media for a bit. And this whole exchange was set up to be a shit show from the start. You have Armas doing his best to express confidence in his players, despite having no immediate improvements to the roster. Then you have fans who are rabid to blame him for the lack of money spent, which isn't even his job at the end of the day.

 

Dyer has always been a fan of Armas, I think we can expect him to stick up for him by now. But in my opinion his assessment of our off-season is off the mark. Gotta try a little harder than this in MLS these days.

Lost on me initially was Dyers implication that Egbo is an upgrade at RB, as good or better than Murillo.   I  assumed him to be more of a depth option, competition for Duncan, more than an obvious upgrade.   Would be nice if that were actually the case.   Still have nothing resembling a replacement for Taxi at LB, and still missing that all-important #9.    I admittedly don't understand the triple deuce formation well enough to assess our gaps there.

I sorta see what Dyer is saying but its not like we are ATL or even Miami spendin$ bringing in young talent.
LB. is big gap
Triple 2 I dont understand as well
Depends if you play the 2 centrally and press out or sorta mid wide Channel with 2 8s which sounds like a bit what they will do
Where the other 2 positions need g sure
Or maybe they say we are young, can press and compact cede wide areas press counter press as unit. Maybe this is a way of turning the press back up
Over my head but would like to see understand more

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