Now no, but time would have passed, and honestly who cares if he cursed at the ref say 6 months later. This has no bearing on RB global brand whatsoever. Yeah, it was a semi hot news at the time, earning him 3 weeks of suspension, but he served it and it's old news. Heck, he would still be the coach of Real even now if his assistant didn't prove really competent and won games while he was on suspension. The whole BS politically correct incident is blown out of proportion, and by the time Armas is fired it will be ancient history.
The fact remains though that Petke in just two years was one of the most successful coaches in Metro history and actually won first ever major trophy here and reached conference finals. Everyone loves to suck Marsch's dick, myself included, but Petke did just as well. If you want competent coach to replace Armas, there is an option to get a guy who shouldn't have been fired from Metro in the first place, and if Metro brass has any brain, they need to seriously consider it.
This is honestly embarrassing to read. If you really think Mike Petke is the best person available to manage the team given its current philosophies then I don't know what to tell you.
Nonsense. I'm not shitting on Armas, he's had a lot of headwinds this season, but it is perfectly logical to say the roster isn't good enough, and Armas is underachieving. Scoring a lot of goals is not the same as winning a lot games, and many of our wins have not been the type that inspire confidence. We may be 3rd in the East on points (nothing to proud of) but are 9th overall in PPG. Bookmakers don't have us any better than that to win the Cup, either.

Yeah dude, because the defense has been mediocre. They rank middle of the pack in goals against. If you want to get on Armas' case about that then go for it.
But that's completely irrelevant to the discussion at hand in which people want to claim that both the attacking talent sucks AND Armas' offensive tactics suck.
Jamaica's FIFA ranking is shitty and that makes it hard for him to earn a work permit in England. From there, it's probably some combination of RBNY's stubbornness, quality of life, and Kemar's personality. He's a full-time starter on a well funded team, makes good money, and has a high quality of life for him and his family in New Jersey. Some guys want a challenge, but he might very well prefer that rather than trying to fight for a job in the middle of Turkey or wherever.
Seeing Marsch at the game made me want to vomit... Nothing good about seeing that dope.
I don't like Armas or his tactics, or his decisions, or his face, but this team is so inconsistent and unpredictable, that this is the kind of team that gets in the playoffs in the 4th or 5th seed and go and make MLS Cup and sneak a win in PKs....
