Petke's rbny teams had more talent. Better version of bwp, better version of Robles, Henry, Cahill, dax in his prime, peggy, oyongo, miazga, Olave...ect ect..

Not so sure.... look at that 2015 Shield roster...

Yeah, petke had more money invested in the roster.
 

TBF, if you took out Henry, he had less than half the salary we do now.

If anything it would bring some excitement to the sidelines, and on the field. Just don't see us going anywhere different from where we've been, at best with Armas. But is rb willing to pay Henry? He'd probably be asking for alot, reportedly wanted $200k a month from Bordeaux, plus relocation and travel costs for him and his agent.

Do it, we need a spark of some kind, and "Guys! Guys!" isn't doing it.

he already owns a place here, so the re-lo piece would not be a problem!

This part is what would get me excited. Who has a better chance of convincing RBG to spend more money on our team? Chris Armas or Thierry Henry? lol

There would have to be a Tata Martino element to it as well, where Titi could convince a certain caliber of player to come here who might not otherwise be so inclined

RSL has a bunch of scrubs and they are over achieving where they should be. On paper they had no business making the playoffs last year. If Petke had Metro from 2015-2018 this club would have won at least one MLS Cup. They would have beaten Chivas De Gaudalajara in the 2018 CCL semifinals.

Successful coaches generally fall into two categories - the ones who get the most out of low-budget talent (the save-them-from-relegation guys), and the guys who can handle top tier talent (the win championships guys).    Petke is, for me, clearly in the former group.   Its the reason you see guys like David Moyes and Brendan Rodgers fail when given a chance at a big money club.
