In Topic: Murillo sold to Belgium

Today, 09:10 AM

This highlights incompetence of RB FO and also coaching. Yes, Murillo had a tough year, where he made some boneheaded mistakes, but still contributed a lot, and was the best RB on the team. Year before he was an all star and still very young. Played well for his NT team. Mistakes were correctable too and talent undeniable. So, what do we do? Trade the youngster away after one sub-par season. He immediately wins starting spot on a team way better than RB. Can't say I am surprised.

 

 

This wasn't just an off-year from a young player who needed a little more hands-on coaching though. This was a kid who desperately wanted out of MLS to play at a higher level, had felt that way for over 18 months, and had at least one opportunity to do so fall through. I don't think even Jesse could have kept his head on straight through 2019.

I guess Seagrist is taking over our tradition of #7 left backs from one Roy Miller...

 

He could do worse, Miller wasn't all that bad. Great passer, and had a real heart of gold. Who else would donate a game ball to the fans with his first ever free kick while a playoff game was on the line?

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.

 

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.

I guess we should be happy that he tried, and expect no more transfer activity before the close of the window in May.

Struck out twice at striker, struck out with Lopes, Hamlett just isnt good at his job.

Dyer is buying a little too hard into the "everything is fine" narrative coming from Hamlett and Armas. His bar for a deficient off season is really low here. None of the three players he calls out are guaranteed to win their starting role, or at least they shouldn't be.

So has this guy done anything at all since coming here? Rumors have dried up.

 

He's had his job for nine days...
