Some people can't stop talking about Murillo and Sims departures

21 September 2020 - 10:51 AM

TBF, I think you have the Murillo situation backwards - he was benched for being a problem, he didn't become a problem because he was benched.    Sims almost certainly went back because of Covid and nothing else.

Say what you will about Murillo, but when a guy is a star before Armas, then becomes a star right after Armas, and wasn't injured or anything during Arma's tenure, it's fair to say Armas had a lot to do with him not playing up to potential. And still he was 10 times better than Buck. Sims was just another example of benching a player who is clearly superior. Sure, Covid had a  lot to do with departure, but being a back-up and barely playing on RB in MLS I don't think helped when alternative is back-up in EPL. Again, be it as it may, that's two example of clearly superior players whom Armas benched and left.

 

Kaku started to get similar treatment, so I definitely prefer Bradley to Armas, so that we don't risk losing Kaku as well, but we need someone better to coach this team, since it looks now even worse than under Armas with 5 defenders and no midfield.

If I sell my beater car for $50k then I most definitely sold it for good value, even if I piss the money away after the fact.

In Dax's case you sold your quite good car for a few more years, not exactly for money, but for points towards another car purchase. Then these points didn't really turn out worth as much as you thought and ultimately you ended up not using them at all. You then proceeded driving far inferior beater car that was left in your in your garage for years to come.


Some people can't stop talking about the Sims "benching"

 if we have a decent striker and winger on the roster we at least level the match, if not more, from minutes 30 through 90.

We had a decent winger in Sims, whom he benched too at the start of the season giving only few mins. We are not going anywhere with Armas as HC.
