Armas is a very good...assistant coach. You let him run training. I would say the same thing about Dome Torrent. You need a strong tactical manager and motivator in the mold of Jesse. Petke was a motivating coach and Red Bull canned him because they felt he was weak tactically or wouldnt get with the system...he won with a team that was multiples more talented this one and because he had Thierry. I have to believe that the organization will not have Armas behind the bench for 2021. I just have to.

Bring back Petke!

 

Too soon?

I thought it! Bet I am not alone!

Edit: Thelwell would be advised against it.

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

I might be overstepping with this sort of opinion around here, but even as a head coach Petke still struck me as filling more of the assistant role, running trainings while deferring to others for tactical advice. It felt like every major tactical shift made when he was coach was ultimately credited to someone else (Fraser, Roxburgh, Henry, even Juninho)

He was brand new to the job here.  He was doing well at RSL.  But it will be a very long time, if ever, that he's back in MLS.

Yeah, he cursed at a foreign ref for doing shit job. What a Xenophobe and racist. Too soon?

Think it was more the gay slur.

To paraphrase Groucho, it was a word commonly heard around the ground, especially on goal kicks.

I think there are a few more coaches out there than Petke that would do a better job than Armas.

He was respectful enough to say it to the ref in his own language.

Prior to that, I had not realized that Mike was bi-lingual.
Can I still say that?

It's a tough one. If your wife said it though, and you were a player for Galaxy, you would be released just now.
